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was originally created to protect the children of slaves and at the time was a good amendment, but it has become outdated and is being exploited beyond ones imagination by those who are in our country illegally.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

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.

You don't get to interrupt me
