Fed. government looks to dismiss AL’s refugee placement lawsuit

(WIAT) — The federal government is looking to dismiss Alabama’s lawsuit over refugee placement after the failure of a similar lawsuit by Texas. Both states sued the federal government over refugee placement.

A federal judge threw out the Texas lawsuit last month, ruling the state has no authority over resettlements handled by the federal government. Lawyers for Alabama argue Alabama’s case is different and should continue.
