“It’s unfortunate that Gov. Abbott once again chose to make Texas distinct with its hate.”
(Imam Omar Suleiman)
Of course the first thing I wanted to know was who are the ten, and I’ll be darned, I couldn’t find out. Maybe one of you can, but this story at the Dallas Observer only identifies a few of those who blasted Governor Greg Abbott for asking for a brief break in the stream of refugees being placed in Texas.
Just so you know, Abbott asked for a break that would last from only June to September 2020, surely not enough time to significantly slow the transformation of Texas from a conservative red state to a socialist blue state—which is what this is all about.
And, look who is prominently featured at the presser—CAIR and professional protester Imam Omar Suleiman.
Dallas Refugee Organizations Unite Against Abbott’s Ban
Since when are CAIR and the Muslim American Society refugee organizations.
I don’t think the Trump White House planned it that way, but Trump’s September Executive Order sure is helping identify the political players working to change America by changing the people.
Here is a bit of the Dallas Observer story:
Ten Dallas refugee, immigrant and religious organizations spoke in unified opposition Friday to Gov. Greg Abbott’s refusal last week to continue accepting refugees to Texas. [But, who are the ten? The reporter names a few, mostly Muslims.—ed]
In a joint press conference, representatives of those agencies, who collectively offer housing, job, language, legal, social and general support to refugees and other displaced people, spoke directly to Abbott, arguing that refugees are an asset to Texas and asking him to reconsider his decision no longer to be a resettlement location for refugees.
“Today, we have a large multifaith, multicultural group of people coming together … to stand united to let the world know that Texas welcomes refugees of all backgrounds. And that we unequivocally condemn and stand against the governor’s decision to not allow refugees to come to our great state,” said Faizan Syed, executive director of the Texas DFW chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
Advocates and agency heads one by one called out Abbott’s ban as shameful, detrimental to Texas and contrary to the state’s values. [I still want to know who are the ten groups.—ed]
“It’s unfortunate that Gov. Abbott once again chose to make Texas distinct with its hate,” said Imam Omar Suleiman, founder and president of Yaqeen Institute for Islamic Research and Faith Forward Dallas.
Suleiman, like other speakers, compared the present government policies toward refugees with those during the 1930s and 1940s, in which the country rejected many Jewish refugees fleeing the Holocaust. [Crocodile tears!—ed]

You met Imam Suleiman participating in an illegal sit-in at the US Capitol in March of 2018. The corny demonstration was organized by our old friends at Church World Service.
The Leftwingers love this stuff—demonstrating, holding press conferences—and it works for them or they wouldn’t do it.
It occurred to me—where are our immigration restriction groups holding press conferences in support of Governor Abbott either on the national level or in Texas?
