This week, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott teamed up to introduce the State Refugee Security Act of 2015, which is a move that directly defies one of President Obama’s biggest agendas.
According to American News, when the bill is approved by congress, it will allow governors to refuse to participate in Obama’s Syrian Refugee program. Given everything that has happened recently in the U.S., congress is said to be strongly leaning towards passing the bill.
Thirty-one governors have already announced that they will not abide by Obama’s refugee program, and more are sure to follow after this bill is passed.
“America is a charitable nation, but we cannot allow charity for some to compromise the safety for all,” Abbott said.
Cruz ended his press conference after introducing the bill by supporting GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.
“A lot of our friends here have encouraged me to criticize and attack Donald Trump, but I am not interested in doing so,” he said, adding that people should channel their anti-Trump anger into fighting radical Islam.
Obama is already in panic mode about this bill, but there isn’t much he can do to stop it.
