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was originally created to protect the children of slaves and at the time was a good amendment, but it has become outdated and is being exploited beyond ones imagination by those who are in our country illegally.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

1 Billion Dollar Net Worth!!! Oberlin College Claims Poverty To Avoid Paying Punitive Damages To Gibson’s Bakery

Although IRS reports show the university is worth around $1 billion, Oberlin College still claimed poverty to avoid paying punitive damages to Gibson’s Bakery.

As Breitbart News reported this week, the far-left Oberlin College lost a defamation case filed by Gibson’s Bakery after a local jury found the university liable for falsely accusing the family bakery of racism.

The jury ordered Oberlin on Friday to pay Gibson’s $11.2 million in compensatory damages for defamation and intentional interference with a business.

Legal Insurrection reported on Thursday that “the jury awarded a total of $33 million in punitive damages, which will probably be reduced by the court to $22 million because of the state law cap at twice compensatory.”

Legal Insurrection has been following the case for two years — since the beginning — and reports that the school’s only defense against a sizable punitive award is to pretend it is poor, despite holding assets that amount to a billion — with a “b” — dollars and despite paying some of its staffers more than a half-million dollars a year:

Oberlin College was so hellbent on getting the message out that their cash liquidity was in such dire straits — as the eight-person jury was figuring out if they wish to add $22.4 million to the school’s legal verdict bill — that they brought out the school’s president, Carmen Twillie Ambar to the stand to tell that part the story.

“We’ve created deficits … and over the next ten years, if this continues, that is unsustainable and we will not exist,” Ambar told the jury. She even indicated the school’s grants — about $60 million a year from the school, and lots of students get those scholarships as only 10% of them pay the full $70,000 a year — were important to preserve as “the accessibility of education” was a key component of the school’s purpose.

However…

The college has more than $1 billion in funds and net assets according to the latest IRS 990 form, an endowment fund that had grown from $440 million to $887 million in the last 20 years, and because of its non-profit status, pays no taxes on any property it owns.

It also had 18 members of their administration making more than $100,00 a year. The president and chief financial officer of the school were both making more than $500,000 a year.

Grifters gonna grift…

The day after Donald Trump won the presidency, this nutball school apparently decided to take out its impotent woke-rage on this poor bakery, which has been part of the Oberlin community for more than a century.

It all started when three Oberlin students (who would later plead guilty in a plea deal) attempted to steal bottles of wine.

The proprietors caught the students and, while attempting to hold them until police arrived, were allegedly roughed up by the shoplifters. But because the students are black and the proprietors white — and with no respect for due process or facts — Oberlin staffers and students decided some vigilantism was in order and did everything in their considerable power to destroy this local bakery forever, to smite it off the map.

Classes were canceled so hundreds of students could protest in front of the small store while enjoying free food and drink, courtesy of the school. School staffers handed out fliers that basically described the family-owned bakery as the local branch of the KKK.

As a result, the bakery had to lay off almost all of its employees and barely avoided bankruptcy.

In the end, the three shoplifters said race had nothing to do with what happened.

For those of you interested in incurring $200,000 in debt before you even enter the workforce, it looks as though you can major in Mob Justice at Oberlin.
