U.S. Court Of Appeals Just Rocked Mike Pence’s World


Recommended Posts

A federal appeals court on Monday dealt a blow to Donald Trumps running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, upholding a preliminary injunction blocking Indianas effort to prevent resettlement of Syrian refugee families in his state.

 

The ruling from a three judge panel for the US Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit held that there is nothing to suggest that Indiana is a magnet for Syrians. The opinion, penned by Judge Richard Posner, is critical at times of the arguments put forward by the state noting that it provides no evidence that Syrian terrorists are posing as refugees or that Syrian refugees have ever committed acts of terrorism in the United States.

 

Posner calls the suggestion " nightmare speculation."

In stinging language, the court dismissed the states argument that it has a compelling interest in protecting its residents. And Posner rejects the idea that the policy is based solely on the threat Pence thinks the refugees might pose to the safety of the citizens of Indiana.
