ACLU urges governors to end unfounded blame of Syrian refugees (video)

Governor Pat McCrory is among more than a dozen governors urging the Obama administration to cease the resettlement of Syrian refugees to the United States.

Cecillia Wang, director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, said:

“Some politicians have attempted to fabricate a link between the tragedy in Paris and the resettlement of Syrian refugees to the United States. Making policy based on this fear mongering is wrong for two reasons. It is factually wrong for blaming refugees for the very terror they are fleeing, and it is legally wrong because it violates our laws and the values on which our country was founded.”

    It is treasonous for an American president to double down on his refusal to enforce our borders at a time like this. Makes me long for the days of Bill Clinton, who at least appeared to take national security seriously.
