On Wednesday, March 6, Judge Richard Seeborg, who was appointed to the United States District Court for the Northern District of California by Pres. Obama became the second federal judge to blocked a citizenship question from appearing on the 2020 census. This is yet another liberal activist judge ruling in favor of illegal aliens over citizens.
Democrats and liberals claim the census question will cause illegal aliens and Latinos not to respond due to fear, and thereby impact on mostly Democratic and minority communities. Many of the communities that would be affected are sanctuary communities that protect illegal aliens.
A 45-year-old illegal alien from Mexico died in Border Patrol custody Monday, Feb. 18, 2019, after crossing the U.S.-Mexico border into Texas. He is the third illegal alien to die in the Border Patrol/ICE custody since December 2018, and the Democrats and liberal media are creaming for their brand “justice.” They want ICE and the Border Patrol abolished or severely controlled, and the border opened. The facts are that this illegal alien was provided taxpayer-funded medical assistance at the Mission Regional Medical Center one day and at McAllen Medical Center the next. He was diagnosed with diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver and congestive heart failure, which has nothing to do with immigration law enforcement. The illegal alien died while at the hospital on Monday morning. Of course, Democrats in the House of Representatives have vowed to investigate housing conditions for migrants along the border. American taxpayers and citizens should NOT assume the responsibility for people who enter our country illegally, and illegal aliens should not demand anything of a nation where they have trespassed. Furthermore, illegal aliens assume their own risks when they break the law to enter the country illegally. Illegal immigration is illegal, and it should not be excused or rewarded.
Democrats in Congress have thrown a monkey-wrench into the budget negotiations that include funding the wall. Democrats don’t want to fund ICE detention space which means ICE won’t be able to detain illegal aliens for deportation proceedings. If Democrats want no wall and no detentions, President Trump should shut the government down. He could also sign "Continuing Resolutions" to temporarily fund the government until next year when domestic spending (the Democrats bread & butter) can be reduced and negotiated. We cannot continue to allow uncontrolled immigration into the country, nor can we let illegal aliens to be turned loose never to be found again. America must secure its borders and protect its citizens.
Democrats are outraged by Pres. Trump’s declaration of a national emergency regarding the U.S.-Mexico border and San Antonio’s Democrat Congressman Joaquin Castro is leading an effort to end it. Castro wants to introduce a provision, with the help of socialist New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, under the National Emergencies Act that says the state of emergency can end with a joint resolution by members of Congress.
Trump announced the emergency declaration on Friday morning, Feb. 15, but Castro who also chairman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, had already begun gathering opposition the day before. He introduced his resolution Thursday evening, and by Friday evening, had the signature and support of more than 70 members of Congress.
Democrats and liberals are in a meltdown because a federal judge ruled on Friday, Feb 10, 2019, that the U.S. government can include a citizenship question on the 2020 US Census. Democrats and pro-illegal alien liberals fear the census question will frighten illegal aliens and affect federal funding the sanctuary communities. If illegal aliens are not counted, that will impact on the about amount of federal funding a state or city might receive.
US District Judge Dabney Friedrich ruled she was unconvinced of an immediate need to block a citizenship question from the 2020 census over privacy concerns, i.e., requiring aliens to answer if they are in the country without permission. The pro-illegal alien groups argued that the US Census Bureau question was an “invasion of privacy” and the government was required to complete a “privacy impact assessment” before adding the question to the census form.
