12/2: Texas sues feds, aid agency over plans to resettle Syrian refugees in state

Tom Benning and Dianne Solis – Dallas Morning Post

With Syrian refugee families poised to arrive in Dallas as soon as Friday, the state of Texas took the extraordinary step Wednesday to sue the federal government and the International Rescue Committee to block those resettlement plans.

Attorney General Ken Paxton filed suit in U.S. District Court in Dallas, saying the New York-based aid agency violated federal law by working to resettle refugees “without consulting with Texas or working in close cooperation” with the state.

The state Health and Human Services Commission, citing “reasonable concerns about the safety and security of the citizenry of the state of Texas,” is seeking a temporary restraining order to block the resettlement.

“We have been working diligently with the International Rescue Committee to find a solution that ensures the safety and security for all Texans, but we have reached an impasse and will now let the courts decide,” said Bryan Black, the commission’s spokesman....

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement had ordered Rosa deported to her native Mexico. She refused to go quietly. Instead, in an effort to pressure the agency to reconsider, she rolled her suitcase through the rickety wooden gates of Southside Presbyterian Church in 2014 and claimed sanctuary.

Rosa's lawyer, Margo Cowan, already had achieved a number of victories using the tactic. Although no law bars ICE from sending squads of masked M-16-wielding agents into chapels to drag off immigrants, as Cowan pointed out, "Doing that would be a public relations nightmare." ICE halted one man's deportation after he'd spent 28 days living at Southside, giving periodic press conferences. Several immigrants didn't even make it to the church before the government backed down....
