TX Refugee Suit Tossed

Republicans in Texas are showing their disappointment after a Federal Judge tosses a lawsuit aimed at stopping any additional refugees from Syria being settled in the Lone Star State.

Texas was the first state to sue the Obama Administration over programs settling Syrian refugees in the wake of the attack on Paris in November.

In a statement, Attorney General Ken Paxton said he’s disappointed, and is considering options to guarantee the safety of Texans.

Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick said Texas has a right to know who the federal government is bringing to the State.

This is the third time Judge David Godbey has rejected this type of suit from Texas.
