Some N.D. legislatures want to sue federal government


THERE FOR A REASON. ALL THOSE POWERS NOT GRANTED TO THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT BELONG TO THE STATES.” MORE LEGISLATORS ARE JOINING THE CALL BY NORTH DAKOTA’S AL CARLSON TO SUE THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OVER THE DIVISIVE ISSUE OF REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT IN THE STATE. GOOD EVENING AND THANKS FOR JOINING US. CARLSON MADE THE COMMENTS ON MONDAY’S 6-30 P-O-V AND SINCE THEN OTHERS ARE SPEAKING OUT ABOUT THE HOT TOPIC. VALLEY NEWS TEAM’S CORNELIUS HOCKER REPORTS TELLS US WHAT COULD HAPPEN IN THE NEXT LEGISLATIVE SESSION AS WELL AS WHY SOME CALL THIS NOTHING MORE THAN POLITICAL GRANDSTANDING. “WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT WE’RE NOT RUN OVER LIKE A FREIGHT TRAIN AND I THINK IN TENNESSEE, I READ THE ARTICLE YOU SENT ME, THEY DID THE RIGHT THING.” NORTH DAKOTA HOUSE MAJORITY LEADER AL CARLSON OPENED UP WHAT COULD BE THE NEXT FIGHT IN THE LEGISLATURE.. SUING THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OVER REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT, BUT SOME PEOPLE SAY A LAW SUIT ON THIS MATTER WON’T WORK OUT “THE BIGGEST PROBLEM THE STATES HAVE IS THAT THEY DO NOT RUN IMMIGRATION SERVICES. IMMIGRATION IS A POLICY CONTROLLED BY THE US GOVERNMENT.” POLI SCI PROFESSOR BARBARA HEADRICK SAYS THE TENTH AMENDMENT ARGUMENT DOESN’T APPLY IN THIS SITUATION BECAUSE THE FEDERAL IS GIVEN POWER REGARDING IMMIGRATION POLICY. “THESE LAWSUITS ARE ANOTHER ROUND OF WE’LL SPEND SOME MONEY TO MAKE OUR POINT AND WE’LL PROBABLY LOSE.” HOWEVER, REPRESENTATIVE STREYLE OUT OF MINOT SAYS HE HOPES THE LEGISLATURE WILL 100 PERCENT AUTHORIZE A SUIT AGAINST THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OVER THIS MATTER. LUTHERAN SOCIAL SERVICES EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR JESSICA THOMASSON HAD THIS TO SAY ABOUT REPRESENTATIVE CARLSON’S REMARKS. “I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT NORTH DAKOTA ELECTED OFFICIALS WILL HAVE THE DISCUSSIONS THEY FEEL ARE IMPORTANT TO THE STATE OF NORTH DAKOTA. FOR OUR PART AT LUTHERAN SOCIAL SERVICES. WE’RE GOING TO REMAIN COMMITTED TO PROVIDING INFORMATION TO PEOPLE ABOUT THE WORK THAT WE DO.” “THIS IS LIKE DONALD TRUMP SAYING HE’S GOING TO BUILD HIS GIANT WALL. IT’S THE SAME SORT OF RHETORIC. HIS WALL ISN’T GOING TO HAPPEN AND THESE LAWSUITS WILL PROBABLY NOT SUCCEED.” CORNELIUS HOCKER. VALLEY NEWS LIVE. IN OCTOBER, VALLEY NEWS LIVE CONDUCTED A POLL THAT SHOWED THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE LIVING IN CASS AND CLAY COUNTIES DO NOT SUPPORT CONTINUED RESETTLEMENT OF REFUGEES TO THE AREA.
