What the Founders would Not do…Posted: December 24, 2013
Speaking only on my behalf here, there are some things that the Founders of our Nation would have tolerated, or maybe just pretended too. Then again there are some Framers and Founders alike who would not even allow their names be mentioned in the same breath, or printed on the same line.
Now I will say it…I firmly believe that those individuals of the founding era would not let their integrity, morals, or ethical standards ever fall to go around as Madam Pelosi does while literally shooting her mouth off about a relationship between a citizen and whether or not they were Un-American for even discussing a matter. One of the larger problems we have in our Nation right now is that the left has everyone for some politically correct excuse trying out just about everything.
When originally a society looks upon homosexuality as a guarded or taboo subject and then through years of abusing just about everyone and subsequently lowering the bar of acceptable standards and then people begin to live with and for the hedonistic behaviors done that is what is referred to as a shift in societal norms.
However with all of my support behind the following narrative, wonderfully written by Hans A. von Spakovsky, whilst being published in the National Review Online it is our hope that the “Time has Come Today.”
A federal judge in Texas has issued a searing indictment of the Obama administration’s immigration policy. He accuses the government of “completing the criminal mission” of human traffickers “who are violating the border security of the United States” and assisting a “criminal conspiracy in achieving its illegal goals.” The judge calls the administration’s behavior “dangerous and unconscionable” and says, “DHS should cease telling the citizens of the United States that it is enforcing our border security laws because it is clearly not. Even worse, it is helping those who violate these laws.”
On December 13, federal district court Judge Andrew S. Hanen of Brownsville, Texas, issued his order in U.S. v. Nava-Martinez. It described in shocking detail the malfeasance of the government. Mirtha Veronica Nava-Martinez, an admitted human trafficker and resident alien, pleaded guilty to attempting to smuggle a ten-year-old El Salvadoran girl into the U.S. This was Nava-Martinez’s second felony offense; she was convicted of food-stamp fraud in 2011. She was caught at the Brownsville & Matamoros Bridge checkpoint in Texas, after being hired by “persons unknown” to smuggle the girl into the U.S. The girl’s mother, Patricia Elizabeth Salmeron Santos, is an illegal alien living in Virginia. She had solicited the unknown smugglers to get her daughter from El Salvador to the U.S. for the price of $8,500.
As Judge Hanen pointed out, the human-trafficking conspiracy instigated by Salmeron Santos was interrupted when Nava-Martinez was arrested, but the “goal of the conspiracy was successfully completed thanks to the actions of the United States.” Hanen expressed grave concern over the “apparent policy of [DHS] of completing the criminal mission of individuals who are violating the border security of the United States.”
After the child was taken into custody, DHS agents learned that the mother had “instigated this illegal conduct.” Yet DHS delivered the child to the mother and took no enforcement action: “It did not arrest her. It did not prosecute her. It did not even initiate deportation proceedings for her.” As the judge said, “instead of enforcing the laws of the United States, the Government took direct steps to help the individuals who violated it,” conduct for which any “private citizen would, and should, be prosecute.”
What especially angered the judge was that this was the fourth case of this nature that he “had in as many weeks.” In each case, the parents were in this country illegally, had initiated, and funded the illegal activity. And in each instance, DHS completed the crime by delivering the child to the parents and refusing to take any action against them.
Could it be any worse? Oh I empathized with the judge and other officials in this case beyond what I would knowingly place in writing. The latest unconscious act that we all see happening is in the matter of DHS employees instructing the wayward immigrants on asylum and a direct result of it – the refugee.
The illegal immigrant has no conscience with regard to the laws of my Nation. Our own President and Congress and given them assistance in the form of cash, food, meals, hotel expenses, even transportation expenses. Let’s not forget that they are being lectured on what asylum is and how to get around under that umbrella.
As far as we are concerned we know who we will nominate for the year’s Presidential Medal of Freedom, while we wish Judge Andrew S. Hanen and his family a wonderful holiday season.
