Texas Govt To Court To Block Syrian Refugee Family From Settling In

The state of Texas has filed a lawsuit in federal court to block a Syrian refugee family from moving into a Dallas suburb.

There is one Syrian family there already, having moved in earlier this year. Now their relatives want to join them, and that is what the state is trying to block, arguing that public safety will be endangered because the federal government has failed to share sufficient information regarding the refugee’s background.
