Texas Drops Appeal in Syrian Refugee Resettlement Case

ACLU

AUSTIN, TEXAS - Texas moved to dismiss its appeal today in its lawsuit that sought to block the federal government and a nonprofit relief organization from resettling Syrian refugees in the state. Courts have repeatedly ruled against anti-resettlement efforts in Texas, Alabama, and Indiana. The American Civil Liberties Union, along with the National Immigration Law Center, Southern Poverty Law Center, and Susman Godfrey LLP, is representing the International Rescue Committee in the Texas case.
