Caravan Migrants File Class Action Lawsuit Claiming Violation of 5th Amendment

 Violation of 5th Amendment, I wonder who placed that into their minds, and seeing how they are not here yet, so whats up?


Caravan migrants traveling by foot from Honduras to the U.S. to seek asylum filed a class-action lawsuit Thursday against President Trump, the Department of Homeland Security and others, claiming a violation of their rights under the Fifth Amendment.

 The migrants are making the argument that our constitution applies to them even though they are not US citizens and they are not on US soil.

 The Fifth Amendment states that, “no person… shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.”

 A recent PBS report cited former Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who ruled in 1993 case that “it is well established that the Fifth Amendment entitles aliens to due process of law in a deportation proceeding.”

 However, in this case the aliens are not even on US soil and they are already suing for a violation of constitutional rights.


Migrants hitch rides in the back of trucks as the thousands-strong caravan of Central Americans hoping to reach the U.S. border moves onward from Juchitan, Oaxaca state, Mexico, Thursday, Nov. 1, 2018.

 Fox reports: Twelve Honduran nationals, including six children, are listed as plaintiffs in the lawsuit. The suit, which was filed Thursday in the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., said it is widely known that Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador are “undergoing a well-documented human rights crisis.”

 The lawsuit also claims that the plaintiffs’ right to the Administrative Procedures Act and the Declaratory Judgement Act were being infringed upon.

 The Central American migrant caravan now numbers approximately 4,000 people, down from a high of 7,200.

 The lawsuit points to Trump’s claim that he will prevent the caravan from entering the U.S. It claims that the president cannot stop asylum-seekers by employing the military — when they have a fair claim. The suit criticized the president’s attempt at stoking “fear and hysteria,” by claiming that criminals and gang members have joined the caravan.

 The suit cited a Trump interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, where the president laid out plans to build tent cities to house migrants. The suit questioned the functionality of such a project, and asked if these living quarters would qualify under the Flores Agreement of 1997. The agreement protects asylum-seekers’ rights and limits how long minors can be held.

 Earlier this summer, a federal judge in California rejected a request by the administration to modify Flores to allow for longer family detention. Administration officials say they have the authority to terminate the agreement, but that is likely to be tested in court.

They have no standing... they are not covered by our Constitution.  It is time for the President to hire good lawyers who understand that the Courts can not extend Constitutional jurisdiction to aliens... read the preamble to the US Constitution... it was written specificall for the United Stats of America... not Honduras or Meixco... It was written by We the People of the United State to secure the blessings of liberty to oursleves and our Posterity... not for Mexican's, Honduran's or other nationalities.

It is time for the President to read the Preamble to the People of the United States... and too let the Pettifoggers know thatt their theft of our Constitutional Republic is over... That, they don't have the power to enforce the laws of the US that belongs to the President and Congress ... The US Courts are granted the jurisdiction to adjudicate the law under specific limits according the Arricle 3 of the US Constitution. 

The people have been lied to and dumd down... by the Public Education System iand cheap pliticians and pettifoggers who would have us believe their lies.  The Public Schools are not teaching ORIGINAL INTENT OR CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT... they are teaching lies to defraud the people of their liberty.  The Courts are attempting to rule America using the 'color of law' and usurped powers which are assigned to the Congress and Executive Branch.  The Congress and President must reassert their place as equal branches of government and stop abdicating their power to the Courts... NOW!

President Trump's EO banning Birther Citzenship is a good place to start... Let the Courts ruminate on that for a while... then hit them with a whole host of EO's banning the implementation of court findings ending the adoption of Stari Decisis.... as the LAW OF THE COURTS.  There can only be one law in the land and that law must come from the Constitution and the Congress.

I wonder who gave them that idea?

‘Restrictive’ Gun Control Did Not Prevent Christchurch Massacre

 New Zealand requires licensing and in-depth background checks for would-be gun owners, but neither gun control policy prevented Friday’s attacks in Christchurch that killed nearly 50 people.

The University of Sydney’s GunPolicy.org describes New Zealand’s gun control as “restrictive,” because owning guns in that nation is not a guaranteed right but a privilege extended by the government.


Moreover, before legally owning a gun, residents must acquire a license. The acquisition of that license involves passage of a background check that “considers criminal, mental health, medical, addiction and domestic violence records.” Third party references must also be provided to authorities during the license procurement process and interviews are conducted with the applicant’s immediate family.

Even after licensing, New Zealanders cannot buy a handgun or “military style” semiautomatic without providing an acceptable explanation for why they want such a firearm. Additionally, those firearms must be registered with the central government upon acquisition.

It is illegal to sell a gun to anyone without a license, which means the background checks for license acquisition are universal; they cover all gun sales and transfers. And in the event that an individual is buying a gun from a friend or neighbor instead of retail, “the buyer… is obliged to pass official background checks before taking possession.” Also, “the number and type of firearms which can be sold by a licensed gun dealer to a single gun owner is limited to one pistol, military style semi-automatic firearm, or restricted firearm per acquisition permit.”

Further, gun show sales are highly regulated in New Zealand.

Democrat lawmakers in the U.S. are promoting many of these very gun controls–universal background checks, licensing, more gun show regulation, limits on the number of guns that can be purchased, etc.–arguing that these measures will make Americans safe. It is not yet clear how the killer in Christchurch acquired his weapons, yet we see that these gun controls did not prevent an attack that killed nearly 50 unarmed innocents.

More than one mosque was attacked in Christchurch, and the shooters who converged on a mosque in Linwood were reportedly chased by an apparent attendee who happened to be armed for self-defense.
