They’re the gift that keeps on giving. Twelve migrants, half of them children, are suing President Trump, the department of Homeland Security, and others for allegedly violating their constitutional rights. You read that correctly. Did you know that
invaders migrants from other countries that aren’t even on our soil, nor have ever been on our soil, can sue us for their (US) constitutional rights? I was kind of under the impression our Constitution was for us and our country. Silly me. Via Fox News:
Twelve Honduran nationals, including six children, are listed as plaintiffs in the lawsuit. The suit, which was filed Thursday in the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., said it is widely known that Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador are “undergoing a well-documented human rights crisis.” The lawsuit also claims that the plaintiffs’ right to the Administrative Procedures Act and the Declaratory Judgement Act were being infringed upon.
The Central American migrant caravan now numbers approximately 4,000 people, down from a high of 7,200.
The lawsuit points to Trump’s claim that he will prevent the caravan from entering the U.S. It claims that the president cannot stop asylum-seekers by employing the military — when they have a fair claim. The suit criticized the president’s alleged attempt at stoking “fear and hysteria” by claiming that criminals and gang members have joined the caravan.
The suit cited a Trump interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, where the president laid out plans to build tent cities to house migrants. The suit questioned the functionality of such a project, and asked if these living quarters would qualify under the Flores Agreement of 1997. The agreement protects asylum-seekers’ rights and limits how long minors can be held.
So at what point is it okay to declare one an invader rather than a “refugee” seeking asylum? When can we actually defend our border? If we’re not even allowed to stop anyone before they get into our country and they can sue us to claim they belong here and there’s nothing we can do about it, how is it even possible to defend our border?
This lawsuit is obviously BS. International law dictates that if you declare yourself a refugee you are to seek asylum at the first country you enter into away from the homeland you claim is violating your human rights. That country would have been Mexico. Mexico offered asylum and they said no. This SHOULD be an open and closed case. But I’m sure it will not be. Somebody will obstruct. No doubt the end goal will be to delay long enough, I believe it’s 20 days now(?), before we are legally obligated to release them. It is a total sham.
It’s interesting how this alleged poor group of migrants is able to round up a lawyer during their sojourn to America to sue before they even get there. It’s almost like they’re having outside help or something. Oh what’s this? A staffer working for Beto O’Rourke was caught on tape admitting they used campaign money to fund the migrant caravan? Nice work Beto. That’s really showing your undying commitment and putting your constituents in Texas first.
Never forget this entire sham and coordinated invasion is entirely being funded by far left groups and being manipulated by politicians. They do not care about these people. All they want is their votes. Third world populations overwhelmingly vote Democrat.
