AUSTIN – State officials are now threatening legal action against local refugee resettlement agencies if they don’t abide by Gov. Greg Abbott’s edict that they shouldn’t accept refugees from war-torn Syria.
The executive commissioner of the state Health and Human Services Commission wrote last week to the International Rescue Committee in Dallas that failure to cooperate with the state “may result in the termination of your contract with the state and other legal action.”
“We have been unable to achieve cooperation with your agency,” Chris Traylor, the executive commissioner, wrote. “Specifically, your agency insists on resettling certain refugees from Syria in the near future.”
