Several months after Governor Bill Haslam asked the federal government to stop sending Syrian refugees to Tennessee, he took measures today to block the rock band Foreigner from entering the state, before the group was scheduled to play Chattanooga’s Tivoli Theater.

“It’s a matter of security to be careful regarding who we take into our state,” said Haslam, who appeared to be confused about the situation. “This Foreigner is coming here from a long, long way from home.”

“I don’t want to be as cold as ice, but we must proceed with caution,” said Haslam. “We have to take action now, to prevent potential radical Islamists from entering the state.”

“It’s urgent,” said Haslam. “Urgent. Emergency.”
