Finally, the nonsense of blocking Syrian refugees might be behind us.
A judge dismissed the latest of Gov. Greg Abbott and Attorney General Ken Paxton’s attempts to block those refugees from entering Texas.
U.S. District Judge David Godbey of Dallas said Texas didn’t have grounds to sue the government and International Rescue Committee over resettlement of Syrian refugees.
The dismissal is the knockout blow to Abbott and Paxton’s ridiculous crusade, and they should tap out after months of wasting time and money.

Abbott and Paxton have been loud objectors to Syrian refugee resettlement in Texas since the Paris terrorist attacks in November.
They have scrambled to put together any legal action possible to prevent resettlement. And they have failed every time.
Good thing none of the nonprofits listened. They continued to resettle over 200 refugees here since late last year.
Although Paxton issued a statement Thursday saying he’s still in the fight, he should throw in the towel and stop spending taxpayer money.
