Tennessee Becomes First State To SUE Feds Over Dumping Refugees In Region Without Permission

Clearly, Tennessee is fed up!

Lawmakers and citizens have been forced to accept refugees into their state by the federal government, despite major opposition from residents in the area.

So..what are they doing to do about it?

They’re suing the feds!

According to reports, Tennessee became the first state in the nation on Monday to sue the federal government over refugee resettlement on the grounds of the 10th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

Hell yeah!

The Tennessean reports:

The lawsuit, filed on behalf of several state lawmakers Monday morning in the western district of Tennessee, alleges that the federal government has violated the 10th Amendment, which says the federal government possesses only the powers delegated to it by the U.S. Constitution and that all other powers are reserved for the states.

The charge that the federal government is not complying with the Refugee Act of 1980, based on the 10th Amendment, makes Tennessee’s lawsuit the first of its kind. Other states have sued the federal government over refugee resettlement but on different legal grounds.

Joining the lawsuit are Sen. John Stevens, R-Huntingdon, and Rep. Terri Lynn Weaver, R-Lancaster.

“The Constitution does not allow the Federal Government to force me as the elected representative of the 24th Senate District to implement federal programs while they sit in Washington insulated from the consequences,” Stevens said in a news release.

“The only way we can get back to our constitutional beginnings and the intent birthed by our Founding Fathers is to go and take it back,” Weaver said. “We are looking forward to linking arms with the Thomas More Law Center for the long haul to regain sovereignty for our great state.”

It’s a great time to be a Tennessean.

Perhaps the rest of the nation should join in on the lawsuit.

  1. The fact is that we cannot afford to support all these people. Also Islam IS NOT A RELIGION. It is an IDEOLOGY THAT DOES NOT GO WITH OUR CONSTITUTION OR BILL OF RIGHTS. The govt. is letting these people in to take us over and institute Sharia law. Build mosques etc.

  2. Yvonne is soooo right! This is a play to change the USA and become an Islamic country. A little at a time, more and more Muslims being let in. A lot of the so called refugees are just opportunist wanting a better way of life, not being
    killed because of religion . They do not come under the refugee definition . Obama want Muslim religion here and want Sharia Law.

  3. When the people finally rise up there will be bloodshed because we as Americans have to defend and fight against all foreign and domestic enemies ..Islam is our enemy and anyone who comes against our constitution..The 3 percent ..our militia are growing in numbers ..join find a group in your state and train
