South Carolina is listed on the FOX News map but Governor Nikki Haley said she will keep accepting refugees earlier today.

New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan, who is also challenging Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) for her Senate seat, is the first Democrat to express support for halting the flow of refugees. She’s trying to look moderate.

1854 Syrians have been accepted into the United States so far.

    Here’s the problem:

    The point is this is setting the stage for a states right to govern vs the federal government showdown that will expose the Feds overreach. Did any of these governors oppose this BS Syrian “refugee” infiltration program last week? Nope, but Paris just changed the equation.

  • JY1

    We need to start regurgitating all of the leftist arguments back at them to prove we can’t do what they want to do.

    Obama said that we must take those Syrian refugees, because it is our moral obligation.

    Morality is a religious concept. Specifically a Christian concept.

    We have separation of church and state. They tell us that every time they want to beat on Christians.

    Our government is amoral. We have no obligation to take any refugees.

    Leftists don’t want Christian morality forced on them (just one example: abortions), but want to force leftist “morality” on everyone, mandating acceptance of refugees because it makes them feel good inside.

    Really sad to see so many Americans finding fault in helping those in need , and giving them a place to be safe . We are all immigrants here , unless you are native american , some where down the line , your family came here from another country . What if your family was turned away ? Told they could not be refugees in this country ? Was told to leave and not come back . Was treated so badly as most Americans treat people from over seas … GET A GRIP .. Land of the free ,

  • wyntre

    Don’t remind me. Two worthless POS’s.

    I see the entire northern tier is going to be invaded: Syracuse, Rochester, Buffalo and Erie.
    And if Cuo-no and DeBoobsio have a say I’m sure they’ll be quick to invite in all the refugees the 16 sane states refuse to admit.


  • ZZZzzzz

    This is excellent news! I thought there were only 8 thus far, so 15-16 states is so much better! All immigration needs to be banned PERIOD, but of course, we have the Muslim-in-Chief in charge, so States Rights Rule! Too bad for you B. Hussein, and you are boiling mad judging by what you’ve said about this already saying we’re punishing the victims. Hello?? We don’t want to be victims!! You’re welcome to bring them only if they get to live with you, Michelle/Michael, Malia, Shasha & Granny if you want. Leave us out of it!

    Just remember all these happy faces enjoying the concert…minutes later, a Muslim-created bloodbath…so sad.

    What a foolish comment. First off, we are not under some obligation to take in untold millions every time there is a problem on planet Earth. We are BROKE. We can’t keep doing this to ourselves.

  • Warren Ellis

    Many were turned away during the Great Wave between 1880 and 1920. Reasons for rejection and denial of entry included disease, morally objectionable, or those whose fares had been paid by others. There is no issue with establishing and applying sound criteria for entry, vetting those seeking asylum and adherence to the rule of law as it relates to all matters associated with immigration. That seem to have held true for decades until this Executive determined that laws he does not like need not be enforced.

    Michigan Sends Massive Message to Muslims & Obama… Liberals Can’t Believe This

    Following the series of terrorist attacks in Paris that left at least
    129 innocent men, women and children dead on Friday, Michigan Gov. Rick
    Snyder boldly decided to stick it to President Barack Hussein Obama and
    permanently suspend the effort to resettle refugees in his state.
    “Given the terrible situation in Paris, I’ve directed that

    “Given the terrible situation in Paris, I’ve directed that we put on
    hold our efforts to accept new refugees until the U.S. Department of
    Homeland Security completes a full review of security clearances and
    procedures,” Synder wrote in a statement published on Sunday.

    “Michigan is a welcoming state and we are proud of our rich history
    of immigration. But our first priority is protecting the safety of our

    According to the Detroit Free Press,
    Snyder’s decision was not met kindly by his state’s litany of liberal
    fools, including Sean de Four, vice president of child and family
    services with Lutheran Social Services of Michigan.

    “The State Department already uses an overabundance of caution in its
    screening of refugees before they gained entry into the United States,”
    he argued.

    Local Muslim leaders stated the exact same thing, arguing that the
    Department of Homeland Security already conducts adequate background
    checks and that we should “welcome” refugees with open arms.

    FBI Director James Comey, i.e., someone with relevant experience,
    disagrees, or at least he did last month when he admitted during a House
    Judiciary hearing that our refugee screening process is grossly incompetent.

    “The only thing we can query is information that we have, so if we
    have no information on someone, they’ve never crossed our radar screen,
    they’ve never been a ripple in the pond, there will be no record of them
    there and so it will be challenging,” he explained.

    But God forbid that bleeding-heart liberals consider the facts, which
    are that among the refugees lie terrorists, and among terrorists lie
    more potential attacks as horrific — if not worse — than the one that
    just occurred in Paris.


  • Circa53

    What Snyder and the Freep fails to mention is that his phone and fax lines were on fire from Michigan residents..

  • US.Patriot1776

    Unless done on a NATIONAL basis …this becomes meaningless.

    There are NO barriers between sanctuary cities and states and those refusing to accept these barbarians. Keep in mind, 9/11 islamic savages trained in FL before traveling to other states to carry out their dirty deeds.
    Just because a few states make a symbolic gesture like this, doesn’t mean we are any safer.

    Mike Huckabee to House Speaker Paul Ryan:

    ‘Stop the Flow of Terrorists to America’ or else ‘Step Down’

    GOP presidential candidate former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is calling on Congress to stop President Obama’s plan to bring more Syrian refugees to the U.S. in light of the recent terrorist attack in Paris by a member of ISIS who had embedded in the refugee program.

    “Speaker Ryan needs to step down today and let someone else lead if he will not act to stop the flow of terrorists to America,”


  • Chas No

    The hardcore American political left is delighted by what happened in Paris, they just wish that it had happened in the US. Their man Obama is working as hard as he can to make it happen in the US by bringing in 200,000 Syrians. The left, Obama, and the jihadis mean to make such massacres happen here, and If they’re not stopped, they will.

  • Paul

    Good point. All he has to do is just increase the numbers to the states still accepting them.

    become far more widespread. The report also reveals where it is produced
    and how it enters the US. According to data from law-enforcement
    agencies, the report cites, heroin is now more available in every region
    of the country, up from 2008. That’s about the time,…

  • Underestimated

    Add Georgia to the list. Unfortunately from what I understand it’s all symbolic at this point. The Fed’s can bring them in without the states permission. Maybe the states can get together and go through the courts to slow it down until his term is up though. Even if they lose…just get past Obama and his ISIS support team.

  • Cee53147

    Oklahomans should remember the Oklahoma City bombing and reject any immigrant, visitor or student from a terror sponsoring nation.

  • NoLibZone

    Catholic and Lutheran Charities need to have pressure from their church goers to not be involved with this. They think they are doing something good, but no they are not.
    The obama State Dept is using them to do an end around local communities and states.

    The petition needs 150 people to sign it online before people can find it by searching for it on the WhiteHouse.gov website. So far the petition has 2 signatures. I just created the petition this afternoon (Nov. 16, 2015). Please help get it going.

    Sen. Kelly Ayotte may as well be a Democrat. How many times has she abandoned Republicans to vote with the Democrats? Replace her with a real Patriot, not the governor.

    I’m shocked, but happy to see Gov. Kasich has decided to put the safety and welfare of the people of Ohio FIRST and will not accept Syrians here. Thank you Gov. Kasich. A surprise, but a very welcome one, for which I am grateful.

  • Scott Esse

    Actually what it does is causes residents of the states that dont ban them to put pressure on their liberal governors, with things like recalls and bullets, it also eventually forces the application of the Tenth Amendment across the board, Shuttin Obama down and stuffing his pen sideways, and brings back funding for the border wall. Wars are won by the collection of battles won, and we are at war with OBAMA, not just Islam

  • 4Common_Sense2

    Exactly! It’s all about the money…. and I’m Catholic…. we are refusing to give any more to Catholic Charities until they stop this insanity. They will be slain in their beds one of these days by these “refugees”.

  • Scott Esse

    No the feds cant. There is no authority in the Constitution for the feds to resettle any foreigners in the US, and the Tenth Amendment forbids them from taking such action without the permission of the involved states. It is vital that you and every other under informed American drop what they are doing and study up on the Constitution, now. One excellent free source is Hillsdale College.

  • Underestimated

    Don’t get all sanctimonious on me. I’m not your average know-nothing. This is not about the Constitution. While you are correct in your reading of it, since when has this Obama government followed it? In addition the courts have already sided with them multiple times on immigration issues (Incorrectly in my opinion). Also I was stating that information directly after the announcement by the GA Governor of his position after which they clarified that exact fact stating that Federal agencies would likely ignore the Governors as the Governors have no authority over Federal agencies. It is the Federal bureaucracy that Obama relies on to do his bidding for the exact reason that he has administrative control over them and it takes a new law (which he won’t pass) or action by the courts to stop or slow him. In the past we would simply cut funding by attaching it to some other needed bill but this useless Congress has given him a blank check. So you hold up the Constitution and yell stop and see how far it gets you.

    The Oklahoma City Bombing was home grown terrorists, Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols who were US Militia Movement Sympathizers who coordinated their attack to coincide with the 1993 Waco Siege 2nd anniversary. They were NOT immigrants, visitors or students from a terror sponsoring nation. Though, I do agree on one thing, regardless of home grown or foreign terrorists, they should be put down like rabid dogs.

  • TheConservativeMajority

    Less than 8 months after President George W. Bush was sworn
    into office, 19 Muslim extremists took the lives of over 3000 human beings. The
    vast majority of the liberal mainstream media, the Democratic Party, Hillary
    Clinton, and the pathetic excuse for a president, Barack Hussein obama, all
    attacked President Bush for being asleep at the wheel and blamed him for this
    horrific attack.

    Today, POTUS for 6 years, 301 days, obama continues to allow
    illegals to flood across our southern borders. The only repercussions are directed
    towards the city, county and state law enforcement officers who would dare try
    to stop the illegals’ quest toward the nearest ballet box and local welfare

    Who will we blame when the next 9/11 happens? How will our
    liberal media and politicians try to turn this back toward our former
    president? I can only pray that when the next attack occurs, we will
    hold these people to the strictest and most harsh possible punishment allowed
    by our rules of law.

    The Solution To ISIS . . .

    ISIS has declared that it intends to strike in the US as it did in France in a new video. It specifically named Washington DC as a target, but one should not take that to mean nowhere else will be hit, because that simply is not true. There is every reason to believe there are hundreds if not thousands of ISIS sympathizers if not outright members in the United States right now.

    France, as a nation, has some of the toughest gun control laws in the world. When those nutjobs came into the theater there was nobody, other than they, that were armed. The people were slaughtered like chickens.

    We declare that we’re not chickens and we’re not going to play by those rules.

    Either the politicians at federal, state and local levels restore The Constitution as regards the Second Amendment, meaning that The Constitution is all you need to carry firearms, openly or concealed as you and only you deem fit, or every politician and other elected or appointed official, including but not limited to The President, members of Congress, Governors, State Representatives and Senators, Sheriffs and local police chiefs must be immediately impeached and removed from office.

    Further, we must vow that should any such attack take place every single politician who failed to take such an action that has federal, state or local jurisdiction will be held to criminal account as an accessory before the fact to murder.

    If the political class will not take this step right here, right now and today and refuses to impeach those who fail to act to restore our rights in this regard in full then we must call a general strike until they do.

    There is only one thing that stops a madman with a gun — a good guy with gun.

    There are no guarantees in life, especially when the situation is grave. But a fighting chance always wins over no chance at all. I cannot carry an armed cop or military member in my pocket but I can carry a defensive firearm and the founders declared that nobody needs a damn permit or license to do so.

    The strongest signal we can send to these nutjobs is that if they attempt such an attack here they will find that for every barrel they point at us there will be ten pointed at them from all directions with no possible way to shoot all of us.

    It has long been time to take back our rights and demand they be respected. Changing your Facebook profile picture to shadow the French flag will do nothing. Making speeches will do nothing. Praying will do nothing. Committing to one of the primary founding principles of this nation — that we all have the right to life and the right to protect both our life and those we care about in the gravest extreme, and that the exercise of that right requires no damned permit or license, will put these jackasses on notice that any attempt to commit such an armed assault here will fail.

    Today is the day folks: Either step up, render your demand that the Second Amendment be enforced as written and be prepared to enforce that demand or shut up if and when the terrorism that just took in France comes here.

    Couldn’t we solve this whole problem by just making guns and all the other dangerous things that people use to hurt other people illegal?

We could all relax and go out shopping and clubbing without fear, and everyone could live happily ever after, right? /s/

    You’re right, terrorism has no religion. Because terrorism is a tool. Do shovels have a religion? Islam uses the tool of terror for its religious gain. Being a war correspondent, as you allege, you would know this. This is why the Christian population of Iraq has fallen from around 1.5 million to only about a quarter million. Syrian Christians who were once protected by Assad are now murdered, raped, tortured, and even crucified by Muslims. Copts under the Obama backed Muslim Brotherhood regime were on the fast track to extinction before the Egyptian Army stepped in- to the ire of Obama.

    But these aren’t the families being brought in by Obama. These are the families being DEPORTED by Obama. Chaldeans, Syrian Christians… all being deported. Being a war correspondent, as you allege, you know EXACTLY what will happen to these families upon return to Iraq and Syria. And according to you, I’m the heartless one?

    Sorry, I just can’t find any sympathy for the poor poor Muslims fleeing Syria. Especially since it’s been proven many of them aren’t from Syria, and the vast majority of these refugees are military age males. Then there’s the refugees we’ve already brought in. The parents of Nidal Hassan. Faisal Shahzad. Muhammad Youssuf Abdulazeez. The Tsarnaev family. Then let’s not forget the visas granted to 20 men to gain their pilot’s licenses. You know, the ones you heard about on 9/11?

    I could go on. The kidnapped girls in Nigeria? The attacks in Kenya? How a Swedish woman is more likely to be raped by a Muslim than to get breast cancer. how over 27,000 attacks have been carried out in the name of Islam since 9/11. But you know what? the list is so long and damning, YOU do some research. Me? I’ll use my heart full of love for my family, friends, and fellow Christians to fight against a single Muslim refugee coming to this country.

    No problem. Minnesota will take them. Our brain-dead Governor Dayton said that since obama said they would be vetted (as if obama knows what being vetted means), then he is OK with it. After all, MN did not have enough blacks or Muslims, so we imported 100,000 Somali Muslims, who took over entire neighborhoods. When you are 100,000 strong, you don’t have to assimilate; you can demand the community to change to fit you. Add that to the radical blacklivesmatter crowd and we will have a real shitstorm here in the future.

    The number of Cubans seeking to migrate to the U.S. has spiked since the two countries began working in December last year to normalize relations after more than five decades. Almost 28,000 Cubans entered the U.S. in the first nine months of the 2015 fiscal year, according to the Pew Research Center, citing U.S. Census data. Cuban migrants have historically used Central America as a land bridge to the U.S., where under current law they are usually offered the chance to apply for residency after a year.
    Off topic, but interesting . Who is vetting these interlopers? What crisis is there, now we have normalized relations? I thought Cuba was paraidise – why come here? hat tip – Bloomberg.

    Unfortunately you need either a declaration of war or national emergency to get those things, and perhaps not even then depending upon how 5 Supreme Court dum-masses vote. That assumes that the President (whoever that is at the time) decides to go that route.

    At this point in his presidency, there is no more debate whether Obama stands for America or not. He does not stand for the USA, and is actively undermining every institution that built this country. Only fools can not see this. I also do not believe Obama is a christian. Actions speak louder than words.

  • jerry2286

    The first thing we need to do is to pressure the remaining governors to fall in line with common sense. The next thing we need to do is to investigate and raid all the mosques in the US, deport their Imams if they are not citizens, and shutdown them down. We are at war with Islam and it shouldn’t take a Paris, or Mumbai style massacre happening here to prove it.

    So, in other words, 27 governors have stated out loud, voluntarily and without provocation, that they have no idea how our immigration system works.

  • K. E.

    A revolt from a majority of states would send a message to Obama and his administration. That is the first part. The second is making it difficult for Obama by bringing this to the forefront of the news…if they are so intent on bringing these refugees to the U.S., then bring them to the states who want them. Wouldn’t that be a better idea? This is, I am sure, what these states are hoping for. Push and push and push until Obama is forced to change his plan due to rising disapproval.

  • Jo

    We are just waiting on the fun to get started.


    Got Climate Change?

  • chedd

    Not gonna happen. For one thing, Obama isn’t running for anything, so is essentially immune to electoral pressures. Secondly, he has already stated that he is disgusted by the whole republican “ban the refugees” thing. Finally, did you not see the map above, identifying where the 1,854 Syrian refugees have already located? You will probably be pleased to note that the vast majority have chosen to go the coastal, mainly metropolitan areas. But the bottom line is that they can go wherever they please (especially if they are sponsored there by, for example, Catholic Charities, etc.).

  • Rayne

    We’re up to 30, now

  • US.Patriot1776

    Governor Hand-Waving . . .

    C’mon, let’s stop being stupid.

    Here’s the law: Immigration is a federal matter. The States cannot be compelled to act but they are barred from interfering. To do so would be to secede (e.g. put up a border checkpoint and enforce it) which is an effective threat only if you intend to actually do it, and that means backing up your words with acts, which nobody has the balls for (and incidentally, I’m not convinced there’s any real support for it either.)

    These “letters” serve exactly one purpose: Political cover for when, not if, a so-called ‘refugee’ is a terrorist and decides to start shooting up or blowing up things here.

    The only answer to this problem comes from the federal side (which won’t happen because neither Congress or Obama will do a damn thing) or a mass movement by the American public.

    Make no mistake folks, you either stand up now or you’ll get shot or blown up. ISIS isn’t going away; the group is a creation of our funding and both malfeasance and misfeasance by the west. Our coddling of people who intend to commit mass-murder and are willing to play the long game to do it will be our destruction if we don’t cut it out.

    Consider this: We bring these so-called “refugees” into the country and then pay them to live. This means they can sit at home and **** like rabbits, and we will fund that. So guess what they’ll do? Exactly that; producing three, four, five, six or more kids.

    Remember that the reason Washington is doing this (along with Europe) is that the cost of having and raising kids has gotten so out of hand that citizens are refusing to do so. That cost is not just economic; it’s also social in that we’ve destroyed the ability of half the population (men) to be reasonably certain they can participate in that creation and raising of their own progeny. This drop in the birth rate by people willing and able to work means that the tax base is threatened especially when you are counting on exponential growth to pay for all the political promises you made.

    But there’s a problem with importing “refugees” to “fix” this demographic disaster: Those people have no intention of funding the pension and medical promises made to our citizens nor will they assimilate into our culture. What they will do is take all the handouts we will give them, making as many children as we’re willing to pay them to create, and indoctrinate them with their culture. Theywill work in the underground economy which not only fails to contribute to the tax base but worse, tends to intersect with criminal elements that we’d rather not stoke (like, for example, running guns to drug lords.)

    Germany is on-course to be majority Muslim immigrant and child-of-immigrant within fifty years. So is most of the rest of Europe if they don’t cut this crap out. We’re behind them, but not by much.

    It is our social welfare policy that makes this sort of invasion possible and it is foisted on the people in the name of “compassion”; this looks exactly nothing like the sort of positive and functional immigration that this nation was built through.

    Your ancestors probably came through Ellis Island but none of them had access to any sort of “social safety net” that paid them to produce children and funded their every life need and want. We did that over the last fifty years and what we got for it is an explosion of Mexicans living off everyone else and now a bunch of so-called “refugees” that are nearly all fighting-age men.

    Understand this folks: These policies are nothing more than an attempt by the worms in Washington DC to get out of the corner they painted themselves into through granting medical monopolies and then promising to cover the ever-ratcheting higher costs that those monopolies shove down the throats of our citizens.

    That’s what’s behind both the intentional tolerance of illegal immigration and now the importation of hundreds of thousands of so-called “refugees.” The problem is that these people have zero intention of providing the funds necessary to make those promises good and they cannot be compelled to do so; instead, they will take the welfare we hand to them and live off it, cranking out more and more children that will be raised to live like them, sucking off the government teat and increasing cost rather than revenue. Worse, those children will be citizens, at least in the US and once they gain majority status there goes our Constitutional Republic. . . .

    The Governors are doing the leading while Paul Ryan “threatens” to cut off the funding. He wouldn’t even bother with his empty rhetoric if it weren’t for the governors’ positions.

They have no loyalty they just want WELFARE and a free ride all while screaming for Sharia Law and whatever other crap they riot over.

  • OldSailor

    Obama is playing Russian Roulette with our safety and the safety of our families.

    Let’s look at some cold hard figures. NO ONE can guarantee that all radicals will be screened out from the crowds of Syrian refugees the Obama administration wants to bring here. Even the best screening will
    still allow at least a 1% infiltration rate, 1 radical average for every 100 refugees. Currently there are around
    1800 to 2000 Syrians here already, 18 to 20 radicals minimum should be assumed.

    The administration wants to bring in a claimed 10,000 Syrian Muslims. 1% of 10,000 is 100. The Paris attacks of last weekend was committed by ONE CELL of between 8 and 10 radicals. That means those 10,000 could serve as cover for 10 to 12 Paris terror cells.

    My figure of 1% is actually very low ball. Estimates of ISIS sympathizers or potential radicals among the refugees actually runs anywhere from 5% to 35% depending upon who does that estimate. Only the Obama administration is saying they can “screen out” all the radicals. Security experts in government and private industry say this is a lie, there is absolutely no way to screen or vet these refugees even in the most basic way.

    Now, here is something else that should make you feel all warm and fuzzy and secure. Once they are here in this country we have no internal borders or security mechanism to KEEP them in whatever locality they are originally placed in. They can go anywhere at any time they chose just as we can. Anywhere you can find illegal aliens the radicals can go. And I will go so far as to GUARANTEE the radicals will target our “gun-free zones.”

    The Terrorist Know they can not Beat America Militarily, and That we have the Ability to blow them from the face of the planet, So they Changed their Major Strategy several years ago, they still play the War Games, but that is not their ultimate plan, They figured out the only way to destroy America, would be from the inside, They have sent in Sleepers to assimilate, to be Sheep in wolves clothing, They are Friendly, soft spoken, Kind, and sympathetic as they bide their time, they have been instructed to infiltrate our Schools, our Government, Our Law Enforcement, and to Run for offices in every arena, they have set up their Mosque to woo in the young, lonely, and naive.. When they have made a big enough Foothold in our Country, The Attacks will begin… So We Can not afford to Take the Refugee’s in…

    Obama’s asinine Response to Americans, is that they are only Women, and Children, and this Fall’s right into their sympathy plan… Let’s not Forget that Women and Children Wear the Suicide Bombs, just like the Men, and one Pre-determined Day, they will walk into the Schools, Malls, Airports, Theaters, Stadiums, Power Plants, and Mega Churches, and set off a Variety of Devastating Weapons… Bio warfare, EMP’s which is an Electromagnetic Pulse, that will cripple the USA on so many levels, plus their Bombings, that will cause so many Deaths, and such mass destruction….
