Lawsuit Filed Against Refugee Refusing Governor

I can only imagine that there will be a lot more law suits of this sort, since Republican governors nationwide are blatantly violating the Constitution for their own dumb brand of politics.

A lawsuit challenging the Indiana governor’s decision to stop state agencies from helping resettle Syrian refugees alleges that the action wrongly targets the refugees based on nationality, and violates the U.S. Constitution and federal law.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana filed the federal lawsuit Monday night on behalf of Indianapolis-based nonprofit organization Exodus Refugee Immigration. It accuses Gov. Mike Pence of violating the U.S. Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause, as well as Title VI of the Civil Rights Act, by accepting refugees to Indiana from other countries — but not from Syria.

The first-term Republican governor objected to plans for refugees to arrive in Indiana following the recent deadly attacks in Paris. Five days after the Nov. 13 attacks, a family that had fled war-torn Syria was diverted from Indianapolis to Connecticut when Pence ordered state agencies to halt resettlement activities.

I'm just tired of the lies and nonsense coming from the GOP, so this is my little contribution to combat the nonsense!
