Barack Hussein Obama’s legacy took another hit on Monday when the Thomas More Law Center filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of the Tennessee General Assembly and the State of Tennessee in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Tennessee challenging his precious federal refugee resettlement program.
Breitbart reported that Tennessee lawmakers argued the program violated the state’s sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. This comes days before Donald Trump is set to hold a rally in Nashville to gain support for his Executive Order 13780, which temporarily halted the federal refugee resettlement program.
In April of last year, the Tennessee General Assembly passed SJR, which authorized the filing of a lawsuit to address the federal government’s commandeering of state funds to continue the refugee resettlement program in the state.
State Senate Majority Leader Mark Norris led the charge on this legislation, describing the suit as seeking declaratory relief in that it, “… offers a unique mechanism by which advocates may seek to remedy ongoing violations of statutory or constitutional law.
Sometimes it’s cast in the nature of a friendly lawsuit to bring clarity to an otherwise cloudy situation.”
