This is a frightening time for the people who live in a nation of laws, where those very laws are meant to keep the peace and give the people equal rights. Since the ISIS terrorist attacks in Paris over the weekend, over two dozen governors of U.S. states have moved to refuse accepting refugees or migrants (or invaders) from Syria as ordered by the United Nations, and, of course, the Obama Administration. (Where is the UN getting the guns to enforce this?)
There’s just one eensy weensy little problem with this as our beloved libertarian Judge Andrew Napolitano tells us:
All together now: Oh $#@!
So, Congress gives President George W. Bush unlimited authority to accept political and humanitarian refugees during the Second Gulf War and never bothered to rescind it? And Barack Obama is now using that authority to force the country to take “migrants” from Syria.
People, this is why you read the list of ingredients on pre-packaged food and the fine print on the mattress tag before buying. Somewhere down the line, there is bound to be a problem.
Anyone with half a brain is not going to shoot Judge Nap for being the conduit of this unfortunately bad news. We just aren’t. It’s not his fault and not his ruling. Like anything else, if we want change, we have to vote for people who will make that happen. In the meantime, this does tell us that the governors who do not want Syrian refugees in their states are essentially SOL. If the Obama Administration won’t hold these people on federal facilities, they’ll be in the wind and the wild, just like all the migrants invading across the Rio Grande and through the pathetic excuse for a fence along the southern border.
Yes, this is a scary time. And a lot of us take no pleasure in pointing out that we said we’d be lucky to survive a second Obama term as Occupier of the Oval Office three years ago when the wet noodle was “elected”.
