The Tennessean - Tennessee's lawsuit against the federal government over refugee
resettlement could be filed by the end of the month, a proponent of the
effort said Tuesday.
Senate Majority Leader Mark Norris, R-Collierville, said a team of legal experts was coming to Nashville to discuss the forthcoming lawsuit, which was approved by the legislature last year.
"We will be working on the complaint that we intend to file I hope before the end of the month," he said, while indicating that there has been interest from some in Kentucky about joining the lawsuit. .... it will challenge the federal government for noncompliance of the Refugee Act of 1980 based on the 10th Amendment. ..... The amendment says the federal government possesses only powers delegated to it by the U.S. Constitution and that all other powers are reserved for the states. (link)
