What about the citizens’ rights?

The United Nations has 10,000 Syrian refugees in the pipeline for the United States — and virtually none can be successfully screened for terrorist ties or anything else. Now Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken are pressuring Obama to bring in 65,000 by the end of his term. Then the plan is to put them on a fast track to citizenship and get their families here under the Refugee Act of 1980, signed into law by President Jimmy Carter. What are we doing to our country?

Oklahoma, Texas, Montana and Utah each passed laws declaring their states sovereign and not under the federal government directives. We, the people of Minnesota, should remind our state legislators of our rights given to us by the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.” See the websites for Refugee Resettlement Watch and the Center for Immigration Studies.
