Walker's race tainted cheap shot at untrustworthy President, on Syrian Refugees, still doesn't justify unconstitutional act against Syrian Refugees.

No surprise, Scott Walker has joined the Republican pack of liars using a not so subtle racial attack on President Obama. First, blame him for Paris? He really did:

Walker's recent comments are also dripping with authoritarian assurances of keeping us safe, using words like "certain" and "guarantee," suggesting that only his party provides such protections:
"Our concern is for safety, and we cannot...we don't currently feel certain that this federal administration is doing all that it needs to be done to guarantee that uh, none of these related individuals related to ISIS or other affiliated groups..." 
Walker rationalizes that by breaking federal immigration law, he can actually "guarantee" our safety. Sure, of course our brave leader can. Think we'll ever hear Walker and other Republicans use that excuse over and over again to get strip the Constitution of any meaning? Welcome to authoritarian rule: WISC:

WSJ: Gov. Scott Walker defended his plan to not welcome Syrian refugees into Wisconsin, saying the Obama administration’s handling of the Paris terrorist attacks shows it can’t be trusted to ensure the refugees are not a threat on U.S. soil.

Walker blasted President Barack Obama’s administration for what he characterized as an intelligence failure in the lead-up to the Paris attacks earlier this month, which left 130 dead.

“The president himself said ISIS was contained and hours later, there was an attack on Paris. How did they not know about that? What kind of intelligence do we have that doesn’t allow the president of the United States to know that there’s a threat on a major global city like Paris?"
Walker Unconstitutional and Lawless: Maybe as a felon, Walker will be bumped from office:
The ACLU of Indiana has sued that state’s governor, Republican Mike Pence, for taking similar action ... similar lawsuits to be filed against some of those states. In a lawsuit filed in federal court on behalf of Exodus Refugee Immigration, the ACLU claimed that Pence’s decision to bar Syrian refugees violated the Constitution, the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the federal government’s exclusive authority over immigration. Judy Rabinovitz, deputy legal director of the ACLU’s immigrants’ rights project said in a news release, “He does not have the power to pick and choose between which lawfully admitted refugees he is willing to accept. Singling out Syrian refugees for exclusion from Indiana is not only ethically wrong, it is unconstitutional. Period.”

Obama lashed out saying he “cannot think of a more potent recruitment tool for ISIL than some of the rhetoric that’s been coming out of here during the course of this debate.”
