The rule of law is the mechanism that renders the government subordinate to the law. The rule of law is superior to the day to day, month to month, or year to year capricious dispositions of the elected and their ideologies. The rule of law requires the government to operate within the bounds of law, and in American government, requires the government to enforce the laws. Under the rule of law, no one is above the law, including the President of the United States. The United States Constitution, Article II, Section 3, compels the President to “…take care that the laws be faithfully executed….”
Texas Treats Illegal Alien, Humberto Leal, as a Genuine Citizen of the United States and Executes Him for Murder
The state of Texas executed Humberto Leal for the 1994 brutal rape and murder of a 16-year-old Texas girl. The fact that Leal was living in this country illegally since 1975 was irrelevant. Dismissing pressure from the United Nations, foreign and American diplomats, former President George W. Bush, Barack Obama, the Department of State, Mexico, and the International Court of Justice, Texas executed its laws and Leal. The Governor of Texas, Rick Perry, refused to exercise his discretion to grant Humberto Leal a 30-day delay of execution, which was congruent with the rejection by the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles of Leal’s request for a reprieve. Rick Perry and the Texas Board of Pardons stood on solid legal ground, the Supreme Court agreed with the State of Texas, and Humberto Leal left Texas for good on July 7, 2011, at precisely 6:21 pm.
If an entomologist were given the following characteristics–diverse in appearance, attaches to a host, easily overlooked, thousands of different species, benefits at the expense of the host, reduces the well-being of the host, exploits the host for food, habitat, and profit–then asked to classify the organism, the term “parasite” would be his/her immediate answer. But unbeknownst to the entomologist, the characteristics given to analyze were the characteristics of Barack Obama’s Auntie Zeituni, parasite, or in non-entomological terms, a welfare queen.
After carefully studying the Arizona immigration law, Senate Bill 1070, I have concluded that the bill is discriminatory, inequitable, unethical, and pregnant with racial profiling mandates. After an exhausting session of cogitating, examining, perusing, and pondering, this is the only conclusion available to this quasi-learned person.
“There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance– that principle is contempt prior to investigation.” - Herbert Spencer
The City of San Francisco is staging a boycott of the state of Arizona. What transgression might Arizona have committed to cause such a caustic and economically devastating amercement from San Francisco? They passed a state immigration law that mirrored a federal immigration law that has been on the books for over 50 years, and to the consternation of many, it is against the law to sneak across the border.
Mexico has an industry that has surpassed its oil export and tourism industry in revenues. This industry is netting Mexico in excess of 20 billion dollars per year. It has a growth rate of 10% a year. It has no stockholders. You can’t invest in it as there are no investors. It has no cost for health benefits, yet everyone has free health and maternity insurance. The cost of the health insurance is cast off to a foreign country’s taxpayers that sit in a state of hebetude. Mexico also has a trade deficit to this foreign country in excess of 45 billion dollars, as this country sits in a state of fiscal denial. The only limiting factor for the growth of this industry is the numerical limits of the citizenry of Mexico. Mexico has sent 10% of their population to this foreign country and is obviously limited as to how many Mexican citizens it can send out. This industry, as you may have deduced by now, is the illegal alien industry.
Elvira Arellano was deported last month after receiving sanctuary from a church in Chicago for the past year. Her crimes: illegally entering the U.S., getting caught and deported, entering illegally again, stealing the social security number and I.D. of an American citizen, getting a job at O’Hare International Airport working in a secure area and having an anchor baby. She was caught up in “Operation Chicagoland Skies”, a federal sting to root out terrorist. After being convicted of her federal crimes she skipped her deportation hearing and became a fugitive, thus holing up in the church for a year.
This was a tough week for national security and the rule of law but it was a great week for illegal immigration. It’s not rocket science to connect the dots or digest the preponderance of events this past week to see the alarming effects illegal aliens, activist courts, the Bush administration and Mexico’s apparent control over policy in this county is having. The depth of the breach of national security is endless with the combination.
The first two news articles below are the results of rulings by the 9th circuit court of appeals in San Francisco on Friday. The fact that these rulings came out of this court is somewhat comforting since this is the most fundamentally flawed court the U.S. has ever produced, and the most overturned and in all likelihood the rulings will be reversed on appeal. This court is on track to have created more laws than the legislative branch with their activists agenda. This is a court that needs to be pulled out by the roots, broken up, and reassembled into at least 3 courts. A few of their honorable stats:
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – A Mexican woman whose fight against deportation from the United States became a cause celebre for pro-immigration activists was deported without her son, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said on Monday.Mexican citizen Elvira Arellano, 32, had claimed sanctuary in a Chicago church for a year with her 8-year-old U.S.-born son before being arrested and deported in Los Angeles on Sunday. According to ICE officials, after being arrested in downtown Los Angeles, Arellano, was taken to the border crossing at San Ysidro, Calif., where she was turned over to Mexican immigration officials.The agency said that Arellano’s son, who is a U.S. citizen, was left with her traveling companions, at her request.
Funny thing about this story is it does not mention that she has been deported before and illegally crossed back over the border or that she was convicted of Social Security fraud and skipped her deportation hearing for committing a crime, thus becoming a fugitive from the law. Also not mentioned by the main stream media is why she is claiming sanctuary in the U.S. without the fear of persecution if she returns to Mexico. That is usually how it works.
One of her implausible quotes:
“From the time I took sanctuary the possibility has existed that they arrest me in the place and time they want,” she said in Spanish. “I only have two choices. I either go to my country, Mexico, or stay and keep fighting. I decided to stay and fight.”
Now the operative phrase here is “my country, Mexico.” Also she is either making her statements in uncomprehendable English or speaking Spanish.
I am at a complete loss for what the meaning of this statement is from a protester at a rally for Elvira:
“Her voice will not be silenced,” said Lilia Paredes. “She will, from Mexico, from that border, give and continue to fight for the just cause of the Latinos.”
Does this mean she is going to petition the Mexican government for the just cause of Latinos? Does it mean she is going to continue her advocacy of breaking U.S. laws while in Mexico? I thought that was the Mexican government’s job. Is she going to hole up in the U.S. Embassy claiming sanctuary while in Mexico?
She has a full plate now that she is back where she belongs, in Mexico.Rev. Walter Coleman, pastor of Adalberto United Methodist Church in Chicago and unindicted for harboring a criminal and obstructing justice, where Arellano has been holed up had these statements:
Arellano is staying with a friend in Tijuana, Coleman said. He said she had brought to light her struggle, and for that, “she has won a victory.”
“She’ll be organizing on the Mexican side of the border while we’re organizing in the (United) States,” Coleman said Monday. “She’ll be talking to organizations throughout Mexico and congressmen in Mexico City.”
This is about as inane as what has been oozing out of Elvira’s mouth. Stating that she had “won a victory” is akin to the Japanese threatening to bring the U.S. to it’s knees the day after Little Boy and Fat Man kissed the ground in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. And what are the congressmen in Mexico City going to do for her?
If Elvira had spent as much effort to learn English and taken the proper channels to gain legal entry into the U.S. as she put into sneaking around and breaking laws theses past 10 years, she could be cleaning planes with a legitimate Social Security number as we speak.
