Tennessee representative proposes activating National Guard to round up Syrian refugees being staged across the country by Obama

(NaturalNews) A state lawmaker in Tennessee is fed up with President Obama's incessant quest to flood America with as many non-English-speaking – and potentially dangerous – immigrants he possibly can before stepping down from office in January 2017. So fed up, in fact, that he is calling for a radical measure to rid his state of immigrants who are from parts of the world where terrorism is born and bred – get the National Guard involved and round them up, then use the troops to prevent more from entering.

"We need to activate the Tennessee National Guard and stop them from coming in to the state by whatever means we can," said House GOP Caucus Chairman Glen Casada, a Republican from Franklin and one of the chamber's top members, in reference to Syrian refugees in the state.

Casada made his comments following the horrific murder of more than 129 people in Paris, France – an attack that involved several members of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria and which occurred at a half-dozen locations around the capital city.

"Tennessee is a sovereign state"

"I'm not worried about what a bureaucrat in D.C. or an unelected judge thinks. ... We need to gather (Syrian refugees) up and politely take them back to the ICE center and say, 'They're not coming to Tennessee, they're yours,'" he said, as reported by The Tennessean newspaper in its online edition.

Casada is practically alone in his call for an all-out effort to send newly arrived refugees back to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement centers. That said, there is definitely a rising sentiment among the state's lawmakers, and in particular among its Republican majority, to do something to mitigate peoples' fears that at least some of the new arrivals may harbor violent jihadist intentions.

Asked to provide details about his plan and whether he seriously believes it is viable, Casada replied: "Tennessee is a sovereign state. If the federal government is forsaking the obligation to protect our citizens, we need to act."

Some of Tennessee's lawmakers were vehemently opposed to and no doubt gave the appearance of being offended by Casada's call for action.

"I think that is one of the most extraordinarily misguided statements that I have heard made by a public official," House Democratic Caucus Chairman Mike Stewart, a Democrat from Nashville, told The Tennessean. He has asked the state's attorney general, Herbert Slattery, for an opinion regarding the issue.

"We need to approach this issue from a standpoint of strength and not fear, and we should have great confidence in our military forces and in our law enforcement agencies to keep our citizens safe. We don't need to go off half-cocked and start interfering in the defense policy of our country," Stewart added.

"They" are heading our way

Tennessee is just one state, of course, and what lawmakers there ultimately decide to do will be up to them and their constituents. And Casada's call to use the National Guard to root out and expel refugees is certainly an extreme measure. But according to a new Bloomberg News survey, a clear majority of Americans want President Obama's plan to resettle tens of thousands of Syrian refugees in the U.S. stopped.

What is also clear is that tens of millions of Americans share Casada's concern that at least some of the new arrivals to the U.S. from Syria do in fact include violent Islamist extremists. At least one of the operatives involved in the attack had a passport from a Western nation – Greece – and was known to have traveled back and forth between Europe and the war-torn Syria.

Also, U.S. officials working with other governments in our hemisphere have identified several Syrian men with fake passports moving towards the U.S. (here, in Texas; here, in Honduras; and here, in Costa Rica).
