BREAKING: The State of Alabama Just Made This MASSIVE Move Against Barack H. Obama…

Dean James III% AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley has announced that the state of Alabama has filed a lawsuit against the Obama administration over its resettlement of refugees from Iraq and Syria in his state, arguing that the federal government had failed to comply with the Refugee Act of 1980 which specifically requires the Feds to consult with the states before dumping refugees within their borders.

The lawsuit charges that the U.S government agencies named as defendants have failed to provide the State of Alabama with sufficient information about the refugees who have settled or will be settled in the state, according to Yellowhammer News.

Governor Bentley has pressed the Obama Administration for information regarding the refugee resettlement program, but says he has been rebuffed. In particular, top White House officials refused his requests to be granted access to classified information about refugees slated to be resettled in Mobile.

“On three separate occasions I have sent letters to the White House requesting information on the Refugee Reception Program in Alabama and these letters have gone unanswered,” Bentley said.

“As Governor, the Alabama Constitution gives me the sovereign authority and solemn duty to protect the health, safety and welfare of all citizens of Alabama. The process and manner in which the Obama Administration and the federal government are executing the Refugee Reception Program is blatantly excluding the states.”

“My number one concern is the safety for the people of Alabama and making sure an outdated, archaic and dangerous process that excludes the states is eliminated,” Gov. Bentley said.

Bentley pointed out that “We simply cannot have a federal program that impacts states yet doesn’t allow states access to critical information,” Conservative Tribune reports.. “By filing suit, my goal is to reform the way the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the State Department handle the Refugee Resettlement Program.”

Gov. Bentley is not only the first governor to file suit against the federal government over its handling of the Syrian refugee crisis, he became the second governor in the country to announce his state would not accept Syrian refugees through the federal government’s refugee resettlement program, citing security concerns and flaws in the refugee vetting process.

“After full consideration of this weekend’s attacks of terror on innocent citizens in Paris, I will oppose any attempt to relocate Syrian refugees to Alabama through the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program,” Bentley said in a statement released two days after the Paris terror attacks. “As your governor, I will not stand complicit to a policy that places the citizens of Alabama in harm’s way.”
