The family of Katie Steinle who was brutally murdered along a popular dock in San Francisco has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Bureau of Land Management.
In my opinion, the person most responsible in Steinle’s death is Mirkarimi. Continue reading →
Mexico has added a 19 page amicus (Friend of the court) brief to a lawsuit against Texas for their refusal to issue birth certificates to illegal aliens.
What makes this so funny and at the same time infuriating is that Mexico does not recognize anchor babies themselves. What right does a foreign government have to interfere in a case involving another country’s sovereignty? Continue reading →
In a statement made Monday at the Palenque Grill in McAllen, Texas, Jeb Bush promised — in Spanish — to grant citizenship to illegal aliens. Not residency, not a temporary status of any kind — but citizenship.
“I, as President, I would go to congress and change the law to give them not a residency but citizenship,” he said in Spanish (not English, mind you) at a meeting attended by Breitbart’s Ildefonso Ortiz. Let that sink in for just a minute before continuing.
The Obama caliphate just saw a previous record beaten. To the best of my knowledge, no illegal has committed a crime within 24 hours of being released. That is until now.
Guaymar Cabrera-Hernandez, 24, was released for a previous crime and the Obama caliphate decided in its infinite wisdom that he was not a danger to society. Maybe not to society, but 30 minutes after walking out of the jail, he had a knife against a woman’s neck so that he could steal her car. He kept the car for a couple of days and then did the same to a second woman. Continue reading →
A lot of educated morons and disingenuous talking heads insist that anchor babies are covered by the 14th Amendment. Sorry, folks, it’s not. I can understand liberals and the media who are owned by liberals spewing those lies, but Fox News, which I quit watching two years ago, is just as guilty.
Bill O’Reilly and Judge Napolitano are the two worst culprits. I assume they can read and with just a small amount of checking, they would know what I know. The author of the 14th Amendment said specifically that it would not cover what was to become illegal immigrants. Continue reading →
When Donald Trump revealed his immigration policy this week, the aspect of the plan that got the most attention was his desire to deport the American-born children of illegal immigrants. Under current US law, children born in the United States automatically become US citizens. In his plan, Trump says that this policy, “birthright citizenship,” is the “biggest magnet for illegal immigration.”
Birthright citizenship is also called “jus soli,” which means “the law of the soil.” Like many aspects of American law, it has its roots in English common law. In Calvin’s Case, a 1608 ruling, the court determined that a Scotsman born under the reign of King James of Bible fame, whose rule united the kingdoms of Scotland and England, was also an English subject. The court found that “a person’s status was vested at birth, and based upon place of birth—a person born within the king’s dominion owed allegiance to the sovereign, and in turn, was entitled to the king’s protection.”
Call them anchor babies who gained American citizenship through fraud and deception, or they could be referred to as the recipients of birthright citizenship as guaranteed by the 14th Amendment of the US Constitution.
Call them what you like, but one of the few certainties regarding the children of illegal aliens born on US soil is that both the left leaning and the right leaning media has come out swinging.
Possibly as rare as a Minnesota dentist bagging a unicorn, or a Discovery Channel reality show of grown men searching for Sasquatch droppings, reporter for the usually left-leaning Mother Jones news outlet, Inae Oh doesn’t exactly keep her pro-Bill O’Reilly bias hidden in her coverage of the Donald Trump vs. Bill O’Reilly slugfest recently on the Fox News opinion program, The O’Reilly Factor. According to Oh, Trump ramped up his “nativist rhetoric” by claiming the Fourteenth Amendment is unconstitutional, which he actually never stated during the interview (see video).
Many critics have been on Donald Trump’s case for failing to be specific on his proposals. When it comes to immigration, that criticism of Trump is now obsolete.
But it leaves 14 candidates wishing he hadn’t been so specific. Trump staked out positions that so-called Republican strategists call poison. Recently, Target learned a lesson that Republican strategists have not. Target has made its departments gender neutral. Transgenders are happy but they are a small minority. So far, 100,000 non transgenders have sworn off Target and their revenues are dropping. Continue reading →
