Imagine youre about to sit down for supper when suddenly 760 folks show up on your front porch wanting fried catfish and hushpuppies. Youd be fit to be tied as they say in Tennessee.
And Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam is fit to be tied.
The Obama administration recently released 760 illegal immigrant children to sponsors in the Volunteer State without any warning, the governor charged.
There was not so much as a text message or tweet.
It is unacceptable that we became aware via a posting on the HHS website that 760 unaccompanied children have been released by the Office of Refugee Resettlement to sponsors in Tennessee without my administrations knowledge, the governor wrote in a strongly-worded letter to President Obama.
Haslam, a Republican, said he still has not been contacted by the Obama administration and has no idea where the illegals were resettled.
I still have not been contacted and have no information about these individuals or their sponsors other than what was posted on the HHS website, he wrote.

He does not like the states in the United States.
He will prefer the states in a Disunited States?
Anyone recall the AIR BLOCKADE of Arizona threatened last year?
Becoming quite a club, I think.
Human trafficking by anyone else would be a 1st degree felony.
Haslam is really PO’d plus many more of us in this state. Obama is this nation’s #1 damn enemy along with his entire admin. Obama makes our Army Taliban lover look like a Saint. They need to appoint an independent counsel ASAP.
What difference does it make.
This was a long time coming. Woodrow Wilson started the disintegration, didn’t he?
Good question. It is time for active resistance by the states. Facilities where these illegals are housed need to be raided, staff arrested. Federal buses and agents who are engaged in human smuggling also need to be interdicted or arrested. It is time for the States to fight back or they will be buried by Obama’s invaders.
I am guessing that TN will wind up with 10-20 times this number.
Just who are these “sponsors”?
And WHO pray ARE these sponsors???
My guess is any one of a half dozen or so “Christian” religious sects - you know - the customary suspects. Don’t have to name them.
I love his paintings. They always make me choke back tears.
The 760 immigrants dropped in TN bear watching, as there is a huge Muslim population that has developed near Crossville, TN in last 10 years or so. I have thought possible training centers....this notice of so many youth going there smells fishy.
Don’t feel lonely. They dumped 1154 here and Gov Deal just found out about it last week.
I miss + John Armour here at FR. There must be some sort of extraordinary writ that could be sought to keep the Feds from doing stuff like this.
At the same time, I'm sure Congressman BillyBob would be entertaining us with trenchant observations about the antics of our esteemed Secretary of State -- whom he knew well when both were at Yale.
Gov. Haley: Immigration situation ‘just wrong’
COLUMBIA, S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley said it’s wrong for the federal government to expect states to accept unattended children who are illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border while providing no information on them.
“We do care about these children. We do want them to be safe. But we also have our own children to take care of,” she said Thursday evening during a panel discussion of Republican governors at the Aspen Institute in Colorado.
“We’ve got our foster children in every one of our states and we are trying to balance a budget,” she said. “And because they won’t do the one basic thing of securing our border, we are now taking on additional children. It’s just wrong. It’s wrong. And when we ask who these children are or where they are, Secretary Johnson said we can’t tell you because of privacy issues.”
But a South Carolina advocate for the poor said it’s never wrong to protect children who are fleeing danger.
Haley, whose parents emigrated from India, said America is great because of legal immigrants like them.
“Secure our border and restore the rule of law, and in so doing, prevent untold thousands of additional children from enduring what is undoubtedly a horrifying ordeal,” she wrote in a July 17 letter to U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson.
Muzzies in Crossville!? I know there are beaucoup Somalis in Nashville & Murfreesboro, the site of the 52,000 sq ft mega mosque, but this is new.
I drive I-40 regularly. Wonder if the Cookeville Cross is now going to come under the muzzies’ hostile gaze?
Then there’s that U.S. attorney Killian creep who threatens federal prosecution of any critics of Islam or jihad in Tennessee.
Well if they’re dumped in the peoples republic of memphis then it’ll be just like home. Dem run, full of corruption, crime and gangs.
EXCLUSIVE: HHS Bankrolled Catholic and Baptist Church from 2010 to 2013 to Prepare for Obamas 2014 Invasion!
They don’t tell anyone and when the cities don’t take them in here comes the fed’s forcing them to pay for them.
Well, until I read this I had some hope for Crossville. :(
I think that’s the plan. But I keep asking why Obama is doing this. I know a lot of people say because they will vote democrat but there has to be another reason. He is trying to keep out certain groups. What is his end game?
Not sure but I see people revolting over it. I wonder when it’ll be a national thing.
Woodrow was no Obama hate the constitution type.
