Esther Yu Hsi Lee, ThinkProgress, Sept. 15, 2016- "In a tense exchange with attorneys defending Indiana Gov. Mike Pence’s order to prevent Syrian refugees from resettling in his state, two federal judges sharply criticized the legal rationale behind the effort.  During oral arguments on Wednesday in Exodus Refugee International v. Pence  —  a court battle focusing on whether the state may prohibit the resettlement of Syrians on the grounds that they could be terrorist threats  —  Judges Richard Posner and Frank Easterbrook objected to Indiana’s attempt to refuse assistance to people based on their nationality and country of origin."
