The state's Health and Human Services Commissioner singled out International Rescue Committee (IRC) as a target for a lawsuit because the organization plans to defy orders from Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.
A CBS affiliate in Dallas reported the story. The TV station's website included an image of a Muslim family, falsely leading readers to presume that "refugees" are families when, in reality, most are young males.
Nonetheless, the predatory left embraces Islam.

The Texas Health and Human Services Commissioner said the International Rescue Committee (IRC) in Dallas is ignoring a directive to relocate Syrians somewhere other than Texas. The state wanted assurances Monday from the agency that it will not accept Syrian refugees and threatened legal action if Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s orders are defied.
The IRC, a nonprofit that’s based in New York and runs a program in the metroplex, has given no indication that it will change course and relocate Syrian refugees somewhere other than Texas. Phone and email messages to the group were not immediately returned.
Abbott is among nearly two dozen governors, mostly Republicans, who have vowed to block efforts to resettle Syrian refugees in their states following the Nov. 13 terrorist attacks in Paris. The Obama administration reminded them in a Nov. 25 letter that states don’t have that legal authority and could be punished, including suspension or termination from the federally funded resettlement program, if services are denied.
That same day, Texas health officials sent their own letter, warning legal action against the International Rescue Committee if Syrian refugees are resettled in the state.
“Your agency insists on resettling certain refugees from Syria in the near future. I must ask that you fulfill your statutory duty to conduct your activities ‘in close cooperation and advance consultation’ with the State of Texas,” state Health and Human Services Commissioner Chris Traylor wrote in a letter, which was first reported by the Houston Chronicle.
