The 110,000 refugees the Obama administration plans to incorporate into America over the coming year shouldn’t expect to set up roots in Texas. The state, which saw an inflow of some 7,000 refugees over the last 12 months, has announced plans to sever its participation in the Obama administration’s refugee program, The Wall Street Journal reports.

The Washington Free Beacon explains that the reason has to do with a lack of safeguards: “Texas officials drafted a plan that would require federal national security officials to provide assurances that none of the individuals being resettled pose a terror threat. The administration has declined to approve this plan.”
