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?

ALERT ALERT

Goodbye 2020: Clinton Ordered By Federal Judge To Submit To Questioning

(TeaParty.org) – Just when Hillary Clinton began hinting that she’s ready to run again in 2020, she has been ordered by a federal judge to submit to questioning about the use of her private email server to convey classified documents during her time as Secretary of State.

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan made the order as part of a lawsuit from conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.

“Court rules late today Hillary Clinton must answer more email questions — including key q’s about the setting up of her email system,” wrote Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in a tweet following the ruling.

BREAKING: Judicial Watch announced today that, following JW's court battle, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ruled that Hillary Clinton must answer – under oath – two additional questions on her controversial email system within 30 days.

Breaking: Court rules late today Hillary Clinton must answer more email questions -- including key q's about the setting up of her email system. Court denied our request to unseal vid depositions of Clinton aides. Great work by Michael Bekesha!

As a statement from Judicial Watch explains, the ruling is the latest development in the group’s Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, which they began to discover why former deputy chief of staff to Mrs. Clinton, Huma Abedin, was allowed to work at the State Department while also engaged in “outside employment.”

Clinton now has 30 days to answer two key questions from a list of 25 questions composed by Judicial Watch.

The questions the judge selected are:

1) “Describe the creation of the clintonemail.com system, including who decided to create the system, the date it was decided to create the system, why it was created, who set it up, and when it became operational.”

During your October 22, 2015 appearance before the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee on Benghazi, you testified that 90 to 95 percent of your emails “were in the State’s system” and “if they wanted to see them, they would certainly have been able to do so.” Identify the basis for this statement, including all facts on which you relied in support of the statement, how and when you became aware of these facts, and, if you were made aware of these facts by or through another person, identify the person who made you aware of these facts.

This new development is huge because it means that the two critical scandals from Clinton’s time in the State Department, her private email server and the Benghazi attacks, are facing fresh scrutiny in both the legal system and the court of public opinion.

And while Clinton likely had little chance of any run in 2020, this makes it even less likely she will stand even a shred of a chance.

We’ve have got to hope and pray that at long last, this leads to the long overdue criminal charges we’ve all been waiting to see.
