This was my response to his answers:


Keven:

I respectfully albeit vehemently disagree with you on your suggestion that 1070 is a “profiling” act. It is a LAW and a law up held mostly by the higher courts and eventually I feel will be upheld by SCOTUS as well. If the LAW is so terrible why have 30 states, including RI begun the process of passing legislation into law which would greatly enhance the ability to control illegal immigration in our nation. When I was in school at CCRI for Paralegal Studies (which I graduated from in 2006) I was fortunate to intern at the IIRI and was even more fortunate to witness the wonderful and joyful tear filled swearing in of over 600 new LEGAL immigrants who went through the time consuming and sometimes daunting task of becoming legal and earning the right to swear their allegiance to this great nation! I take visceral offense to those who cheat and break our laws by being in this country and utilizing our resources and services at the cost of the honest law abiding members of our societies.

As for RI not having constitutional authority to assist the Federal Government in enforcing immigration laws already on the books, to this I would simply state that is what Constitutional Amendments are for.

Again on your point about the sanctuary city’s in RI, I must respectfully disagree with you that if a member of Law Enforcement performs a legitimate stop or inquiry of an individual and finds that the individual is not in this country legally I believe they should in accord with written law detain said individual to be turned over to the Feds for proper disposition of their illegal status, i.e. deport them.

As for the current debate ongoing regarding amending the 14th Amendment to NOT grant citizenship to children of illegal immigrants in our nation, I again must disagree with your stand on this matter. I have seen and see every day of my life the “breeding” of children of illegal immigrants for the sole purpose of creating an anchor scenario for the parents of those children. The 14th Amendment was originally created to protect the children of slaves and at the time was a good amendment, but it has become outdated and is being exploited beyond ones imagination by those who are in our country illegally. This creates an extreme burden upon our society in many ways, and it is just plain damned wrong. Pardon my language, but this is a passionate subject for this citizen.

I am extremely pleased to hear about your being in favor of the 2nd Amendment as a card carrying member of the NRA!

Sincerely,

R. Michael Sheldon

PS: I do thank you for taking the time to answer my questions, which is NOT typical of most political candidates in my experience.

This is a copy of an email sent to me by Keven McKenna (candidate for AG in RI):


Mike:

Thanks for your questions.

1. What is your stand on AZ-1070, and would you enforce similar legislation in RI if the General Assembly passes said law?-

If you mean Arizona’s profiling act in RI, it is nonesensial application. Shoe does not fit. Moreover, you can not arrest without probable Cause. Do you think you look like an illegal ? Do you want to be arrested based on looks?

2. What would your position as AG be on illegal immigration reform in RI?
R.I. has no constitutional authority and is pre-empted by the U.S. Constitution.

3. What would you do as AG to curb “sanctuary city’s” in RI?

If a R.I.police department is subverting federal law, it is a federal crime and they will be imprisoned by the Feds.
If you are talking about chatter in the Phoenix, it is not the AG’s role.

P.S. I am a strict constructionist in favor of gun rights on the state and federal.
I am opposed to the regulation of guns in violation of the U.S. and R.I. constitution.

What is your position on the challenge to the 14th Ammendment?

There is no constitutional basis of which I have knowledge.

ALERT ALERT

YIKES!!! Chelsea Clinton Emphatically States A Person With A Beard And A Penis Can ‘Absolutely’ Identify As A Woman

  • The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification
  • In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons about transgender self-identification
  • Chelsea Clinton replied ‘yes’ emphatically when asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman
  • ‘It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently,’ Hillary said
  • Aitkenhead said Hillary became ‘uneasy’ when the question was asked while Chelsea shot a ‘furious stare’ at the journalist as her mother answered
  • Hillary added: ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw’

(Daily Mail) – It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo.

The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked ‘uneasy’, and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting.

‘Errr. I’m just learning about this,’ Hillary responded. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.’

The Clintons sat sown with Aitkenhead to promote the book they co-authored, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

The book features Danica Roem, the first trans woman elected to a U.S. state legislature.

According Aitkenhead’s account, she tells Hillary during the interview that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.’

Hillary nods in agreement, while Chelsea ‘stiffens and stares at me’, according to Aitkenhead.

The journalist then adds that many women of Hillary’s generation are uncomfortable with biological males sharing women’s bathrooms.

‘I would say that, absolutely,’ Hillary nods firmly. ‘Absolutely. Yes.’

That’s when Chelsea begins shooting a ‘furious stare’ at Aitkenhead, who points it out to her.

‘I’m a terrible actor’, Chelsea laughs.

Chelsea then says she is thrilled with the National Health Service’s decision to assign patients to single-sex wards according to the gender they identify as, instead of their biological make up.

‘How can you treat someone if you don’t recognize who they feel and know in their core they are?’ Chelsea says.

‘And I strongly support children being able to play on the sports teams that match their own gender identity,’ she adds. ‘I think we need to be doing everything we can to support kids in being whoever they know themselves to be and discovering who they are.’

At this point Hillary looks conflicted.

‘I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is,’ Hillary says. ‘There are women who’d say [to a trans woman], ”You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.” I hear that conversation all the time.’

Despite the clear tension in the room, the pair say they don’t argue about this topic.

But according to Aitkenhead, ‘I get the impression they don’t like to present anything less than a united front to the world.’
