Mike Pence: Indiana Governor Being Sued By ACLU For Stance On Syrian Refugees, Do They Have A Case? [Video]

Louis Babcock

Indiana governor Mike Pence is being sued by the ACLU for his stance on refusing to accept Syrian refugees into his state. On November 16, Governor Mike Pence put out a statement declaring his intentions on the Syrian refugees.

"In the wake of the horrific attacks in Paris, effective immediately, I am directing all state agencies to suspend the resettlement of additional Syrian refugees in the state of Indiana pending assurances from the federal government that proper security measures have been achieved."

"Indiana and the United States must continue to serve as a safe harbor for refugees from around the world. However, unless and until the federal government addresses the security gaps acknowledged by the FBI and Department of Homeland Security with regard to refugees from Syria, as governor I will continue to put the safety and security of Hoosiers first."
"Why did they bring us if they didn't want us? We felt rejected. We were depressed. How could that be the freedoms that we hear about?"
"He does not have the power to pick and choose between which lawfully admitted refugees he is willing to accept. Singling out Syrian refugees for exclusion from Indiana is not only ethically wrong, it is unconstitutional. Period."

The Syrian family-of-three that was trying to settle in Indiana has been taken in with open arms by Connecticut.

What are your thoughts on what Governor Mike Pence, and the other governors, are doing in regard to the refugee crisis.
