Part of the playbook of the communist Democrats involves deliberately creating a conflicted, twisted legal landscape by selectively refusing to enforce laws and then exploiting the resulting legal ambiguities with opportunistic, targeted legal action. Usually the lawsuits are sponsored by a non-profit advocacy group like the ACLU, SPLC, CAIR, La Raza, LULAC or other Marxist, racial preference, anti-American agitators, at least as it relates to the international invasion aspect.
Domestic inter-racial strife creation tactics are similar but generally involve other groups specific to that assault, such as the notorious Black Lives Matter or the New Black Panther Party.
Often their efforts are successful; with teams of lawyers at the ready and the deepest of pockets, including those of the very American citizen taxpayers they target, to manipulate the people into involuntary compliance. It’s common for the good guys, the citizens to come up the losers, but sometimes they actually win. Other times there are partial victories, a very expensive, burdensome path to doing what the American people understand is the right and natural action for a sovereign nation.
What is obvious is that the illegal alien advocates are manipulating our system, relying upon a distortion of the 14th Amendment to claim squatter’s rights to remain in the country. Their relatives are using chain migration in joining with the corrupt Democrats to argue that they have some valid claim to remain in the United States in direct violation of our laws. Were the interpretation of the 14th Amendment based upon its original intent, the problem would not exist; foreigners would not be able to game the system by simply dropping their anchor on our shores.
Some states are part of the problem and others are fighting like Hell to be part of the solution. Texans are fighters, excluding the liberal girly-men now flittering about the streets of Austin. They’ve challenged the manipulated acceptance of unreliable identification as the means of establishing the identity of those being issued US birth certificates. At issue are the “matriculas” or “matricula consular,” an unverified form of identification issued by the Mexican government.
On Friday a federal judge refused to issue a preliminary injunction against the State of Texas Vital Statistics Unit in response to their refusal to accept the unsubstantiated Mexican invasion documents. A lawsuit brought by one of those groups created to exploit the American system, LUPE, on behalf of 23 foreigners who are trying weasel their way into US citizenship has asked that the Texans be forced to declare anchor babies to be Americans and establish identity based solely upon their claim of who they really are.
In the Bizzaro World that is the United States the illegals filed suit in US District Court in Austin claiming that they or in the short-term their spawn, were being denied citizenship because they are not citizens, a right that shouldn’t be conveyable by one not having it in their possession.
That should go without saying, but the selective enforcement of the law has created the dispute-rich environment by design, and it’s being exploited as intended. The illegals argued, “Such refusal is de facto based upon the immigrant status of the Plaintiff parents.”
The State of Texas is not refusing to issue birth certificates, they are simply insisting on verified and easily available documents which any lawful resident should have access to, including drivers licenses, a border identification card, or passport with the appropriate accompanying visas.
But Texas is going even further to accommodate their illegal alien intruders, as Brietbart News notes, accepting other combinations of ID, such as a “Mexican voter registration card or a foreign identification with identifiable photo of applicant. A single primary identification document is sufficient to establish identity. If those forms of identification aren’t available, an applicant may submit two forms of secondary identification, or one form of secondary identification and two forms of acceptable supporting identification of different types.”
How disenfranchising and mean-spirited of those Texas good old boys, to obstruct the open borders opportunists. One of them, State Health Services spokesman Chris Van Deussen, pointed out that it has never been the policy of the State of Texas to accept the matriculas because the issuer of the ID does not verify the data or documents that are shown when procuring the identification. He noted that it is the responsibility of the State not only to issue documents but to ensure that they are legitimate.
Naturally, the complaints quickly get down to the heart of he matter, what the freeloaders trying to manipulate benefits from the American system won’t be able to get, the free stuff they claim to be entitled to by virtue of favorable geography.
The parasitic parents argue that their anchor children will not be able to obtain “government benefits,” such as free health care, welfare payments, free school and free day care. There’s a pattern of expecting and demanding something for nothing that appears to be developing.
The federal court judge agreed with the parasites to a point, that they were able to prove the State injured them to the degree that they were being denied some “rights” as citizens as well as a most odd agreement as to the free exercise of religion and being baptized.
Apparently God doesn’t know who these people are? Or is it just that their churches understand that the matriculas are invalid IDs as well. Of course they would lie to the US government about their identity if it served their purposes, but if they’re willing to lie about their identify on a baptismal form aren’t they missing the whole point? Why is it reasonable to expect the US to trust them when their own church doesn’t?
They also noted it restricted their “right to travel,” which could only involve situations such as getting on an airplane or crossing out of the country and reentering. If they aren’t supposed to be here, how is that legitimately the fault of Texas that they don’t receive their free passes across our border?
There’s a concept called personal responsibility that the Marxist Democrats are also trying to eliminate. It’s not part of and doesn’t mesh well with their nanny state system. In spite of recognizing that their “sponging rights” to free stuff were negatively impacted, the judge denied the request for a preliminary injunction.
In ruling against the litigating leeches’ petition, the judge noted that “A party may be granted relief only if they show that they have a substantial likelihood of success on the merits, a substantial threat that failure to grant the injunction will result in irreparable injury, and that the threatened injury out-weighs any damage that the injunction may cause the opposing injury. They must also show that the injunction will not disserve the public interest. Under this standard, the Court declined to give relief to the Plaintiffs at this stage of the legal proceedings.”
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton responded to the ruling, saying, “Today’s ruling is an important first step in insuring the integrity of birth certificates and personal identity information. Before issuing any official documents, it’s important for the state to have a way to accurately verify people are who they say they are through reliable identification mechanisms. We will continue defending DSHS’s policy on safeguarding Texans’ most sensitive information and vital documents.”
Things would be much simpler and much more equitable if the Marxist Democrats would simply stop trying to manipulate our nation into their authoritarian model and respect our laws, the American citizens and the Constitution. Regardless of what else occurs, those are things that will never happen; they’re out to destroy us, their illegal invading army is a key component of that process.
