The Morning Report - 8/26/19

Good morning, kids. Start of a new week so let's dive right in, starting with the illegal immigration crisis. As we all know, when the Democrat-Left cannot advance its policy goals through normal legislative or political processes, it relies on a corrupt judiciary to play word games with the Constitution or, failing that, shred it entirely. The first link from Daniel Horowitz at Conservative Review is a prime example.

...This law has been on the books in some form for over 130 years, and numerous federal courts have upheld convictions based on [8 U.S.C.] 1324. Yet one judge, who worked for an open-borders group named El Centro Inc. and whose sister Janet Murguia is president of La Raza (now called UnidosUS), suddenly thinks conspiring to harbor and encourage illegal immigration violates the First Amendment. Carlos' sister Mary (who is an identical twin to Janet) is a federal judge on the very Ninth Circuit Court from which he drew this opinion. Judge Mary Murguia once recused herself from a trial involving pro-enforcement Sheriff Joe Arpaio because of her sister's leadership of La Raza. Carlos should have done the same thing this week in this case, which involves a law that directly conflicts with the work with the open-borders groups his family is associated with.

Rather than rule based on the law, he decided to adopt the ruling of the Ninth Circuit (which doesn't have jurisdiction in Kansas), which ruled last December that 1324 is "unconstitutionally overbroad" because it "criminalizes a substantial amount of protected expression." "The court adopts (the 9th Circuit's) analysis in full and agrees that (the law) on its face is overbroad under the First Amendment," said Murguia in a brief bench ruling first reported by KCUR-FM.

This assertion is ridiculous, because the law clearly refers to engaging in subversive and fraudulent activities to encourage or enable actual individual aliens to remain in the country, not mere political advocacy for liberal immigration policies in the abstract. It's like saying that someone who hates high taxes or gun control laws and advocates against them is the same as a person who actively assists tax cheats and gun felons in achieving the end goal of the criminalized behavior...

... Some on the Right believe that Congress needs to pass new laws in order to end illegal immigration. It's simply not true. We don't have a law problem; we have a judicial supremacy problem...

Bingo. As we reported last week, and as highlighted in the second link, the President going after the disastrous mangling of the 14th Amendment and with it "anchor babies" is sure to meet stiff resistance in the courts; and not just from the Leftist plaintiffs but from its bought-and-paid-for corrupt hacks-in-black, all the way up to and including the SCOTUS. Regardless of this, the President needs to multiply the Mississippi immigration round up from a couple of weeks back a thousand-fold, not only expediting the deportation of any and all foreigners here illegally, but the arrest and prosecution of those who employ them. Throw the damn book at them pour encourager les autres. But of course, it raises the point of how are he and we supposed to rely on the rule of law to end the corruption and lawlessness when those who are charged with faithfully enforcing it are a source of the corruption itself?

The country is at or perhaps beyond a tipping point. The President should just steamroll his enforcement of existing law and let the Left play catch-up, ironically just like Obama did except he was steamrolling us with wildly illegal executive actions. Unfortunately, it still leaves in place a judiciary that wields power way beyond what the Framers intended, the President and Cocaine Mitch's highly successful appointments notwithstanding. That is going to have to be addressed, assuming we still have a functioning republic beyond the next 5 to 10 years, and that situation is, to be as optimistic as possible, a big question mark.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

NOTE: The opinions expressed in some links may or may not reflect my own. I include them because of their relevance to the discussion of a particular issue.
