Senate Joint Resolution 0467 Update

Today, the Senate Finance Committee voted 9-1 in favor of a resolution that directs the Attorney General to sue the federal government and stop refugee resettlement in Tennessee. 

Ahead of the hearing, we delivered 2300+ signatures from our "I Welcome Refugees" petition to each Committee member. With the petition in hand and with supporters and refugees in the room, Senator Norris had to address our concerns. Even though we were unable to stop the resolution, it put the Committee members in an uncomfortable position and made our voices heard.
