This has possibility 22 Feb 2011 @ 17:27Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : Gubmint , add a comment
Not sure if this is going to pass muster or not, but it certainly has Security Services personnel here on base VERY intrigued.
A measure filed by State Rep. Lois Kolkhorst (R-Brenham) would allow any law enforcement agency that has custody of an illegal immigrant to take the illegal to ‘the office of a U.S. Senator or Representative’ and leave them there.
As the article puts it,
This should get their attention.
and indeed it would. But I’m sure as my left middle finger will attest, bonehead groups like Amnesty International or even the “caring” arms of the ACLU will be throwing their equivalent of a two year-old’s temper tantrum when they get their eyes on this piece of legislation.
1200 WOAI news reports the measure also allows county sheriff’s deputies or city police officers to ‘request an agent or employee of the United States Senator or United States Representative to sign a document acknowledging the release or discharge of the illegal immigrant at the senator’s or representative’s office.
Ahh but of course, here is the requisite red tape requirement….
Several thousand people are expected to descend on the state capitol today to denounce the measures, and to call on the federal government, not the states, to handle matters related to immigration.
Who wants to take bets on which “community organizing agency” is handling this crowd??? Can you say “S-E-I-U” or even “A-C-L-U”?? Yesssss, I knew you could.
What these idiots don’t understand is that the Al-Obambi clown act ain’t gonna do jack squat about securing our borders. Sure there are federal laws regarding immigration and border control, but as we all know well and good, having laws and ENFORCING those laws are two massively separate endeavors. And when it comes to border control, we here at the Command HQ are 150% for having the states to have the responsibility for border enforcement purely because the “federales” they es mui loco gringos. I’ve met and talked to many a Border Patrol agent in my days and these guys are John McLane, die hard-type, Americans (God bless you Ramos and Compeon for holding true to your duty) who are doing an extremely difficult job only made worse by the bureaucrats almost completely hand-cuffing them in the name of political correctness. On the other hand, I’m not saying we need to move into isolationist mode with our borders. But dammit, there is a very clear process for entering this country as well as becoming a citizen. If you desire citizenship enough to do it the just, proper, and LEGAL way — well I, the entire base and the rest of America welcomes you whole-heartedly. If you insist on being illegal about your ways, then you should be stopped, questioned, and summarily returned to the far side of the border with all due promptness. No green card, no stay on American soil. Period.
FOLLOW-UP: Rancher has to pay $78k in damages 20 Feb 2009 @ 17:12Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : I'm callin' SHENANIGINS, ILLEGAL aliens , add a comment
If you jump back here, Darth has the original post on this pissue. Now it seems that while the ILLEGALS didn’t get the $32 MILLION (holding pinky to cheek) they wanted, as for right now the judge has awarded them just over $78k for:
The rancher was held liable for limited damages involving assault and emotional distress. Two illegal aliens were given $1,000 plus $10,000 in punitive damages each. Two more received $7,500, plus $20,000 in punitive damages each.
Also, two of the plaintiffs received $1,400, and two were awarded $1 each for assault. The term “assault” is legally applied when a person has simply put someone in fear of a harmful contact.
On the good side:
Barnett’s attorney, David Hardy, said the judge completely dismissed the cases against Barbara and Donald after the illegals claimed conspiracy.
All together, the illegals received only $77,804 of the $32 million they requested – and Hardy believes that award will be thrown out in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
“It was 95 percent victory for us,” he said. “What they really wanted were the first two civil rights claims because if they got those, they got attorney’s fees. With nine attorneys working on the case, I’m sure their fees were $500,000 to $1 million.”
Remember denizens, the wacko Ninth Circuit Court is in San Franpelousy’s neck of the woods so we can’t be totally sure an appeal would be won by Hardy and the rancher. Clearly though, this appeal should be a open-and-shut deal where the damages are rescinded and the ILLEGALS are forced to not only pay THEIR lawyers fees, but Hardy’s fees and all the court costs.
