Duplicitous NY Times Suddenly Enthused By States Rights On Illegal Aliens

The Editorial Board of the NY Times really, really likes the notion of States and cities leading the resistance to something that hasn’t even happened in attempting to protect people who are….unlawfully present in the United States, people who decrease wages, take jobs from Americans, gum up the works at hospitals and cause emergency rooms to close, choke up the criminal justice system and prisons, commit identity fraud, kill and rape citizens, and so much more

California Looks To Lead The Trump Resistance

Nobody knows yet what Donald Trump is going to do to immigration enforcement. Only a month has passed since the election, and the president-elect is no different from the candidate: erratic, self-contradictory, hazy on principles and policies.

But states and cities that value immigrants, including the undocumented, do not have the luxury of waiting and hoping for the best. They are girding for a confrontation, building defenses to protect families and workers from the next administration.

That’s a nice bit of mental jujitsu, equating legal immigrants with illegals, proposing that Trump will go after the legals, which he has never discussed. Here’s where it gets cute, because they probably read their own previous work

Nothing in the [bills protecting illegals offered in California] would obstruct the federal government. This is not a nullification of federal laws or a rebellion against the Constitution. It’s upholding the Fourth Amendment, preventing unreasonable search and seizure, so mothers and fathers can go to work and children go to school without fear of losing one another. It’s upholding the First Amendment, so day laborers can solicit work on a sidewalk. It’s allowing the local police to keep the trust and cooperation of crime victims and witnesses, who will not fear every encounter as a prelude to deportation. (snip)

But the opposite is true: By drawing a bright line between federal immigration enforcement and local policing, the California Values Act would promote smarter, more effective law enforcement. Local officers would continue to keep the peace, and in the face of criminal threats — as validated by a warrant from a judge — would cooperate with federal agents. But if the Trump administration begins roundups of those who pose no danger, of minor offenders and noncriminals, staking out schools, churches, businesses and homes — they will not do its job for it.

Let’s jump back in time to 2010, to another NY Times editorial board piece

The Constitution Trumps Arizona

The Obama administration has not always been completely clear about its immigration agenda, but it was forthright Tuesday when it challenged the pernicious Arizona law that allows the police to question the immigration status of people they detain for local violations. Only the federal government can set or enforce immigration policy, the government said in its lawsuit against the state, and “Arizona has crossed this constitutional line.”

There is nothing terribly complicated about this principle, which is based on several aspects of the Constitution, acts of Congress, and Supreme Court decisions over the years. A patchwork of state and local immigration policies would cause havoc.

Well, the NYTEB seemed pretty clear in their notion about immigration policy, did it not? But, now that the law might actually be enforced by the Trump administration, the same NYTEB is enthused by this State’s Rights thing. They’ve done a bit of parsing in order to find a way for states and cities to blow off federal law, citing the 4th, forgetting that the law allows people to be arrested for being an illegal alien, and the 1st applies if the person is lawfully present in the U.S. or a citizen.

There’s always an excuse of duplicitous actions and thought in Liberal World.

    Teach: 3% of American residents, mostly hard-working for low pay, are ruining America. The other 97% of American residents don’t cause any of our problems (except for those swarthy types we can’t name anymore).

    Forced to wait for your kid’s heroin overdose treatment? Damn Mexicans!

    Didn’t get that pay raise? Those god-Damn Mexicans!

    Taxes too high? Friggin’ Mexicans!

    We didn’t even have any rape or murder until those mother-fugging Mexicans broke into our country!

    Forced to wait for your kid’s meth trial? Son of bitch, cog-sucking Mexicans!

    Kid can’t get into Harvard? Fukking Mexicans can, and for free, on the white man’s dime!!!!

    If it weren’t for the Great Don (and the taxpayers) we’d have to buy all our air conditioners from Mexicans!

    If we could just get rid of all those murdering, raping Mexican cockroaches we could Make America Great Again. Kill em’ all!!

    The Trumpenfuhrer wants a federal “immigration force” to go state by state ferreting out residents without proper papers. His new Seach & Seizure force (SS for short) will be the enforcement arm. His new Supreme Court (blocking Garland looks smarter and smarter now) will give the SS broad powers to enter homes, schools, certain churches, places of business and to stop residents to insure the safety and convenience of real Americans. In fact, just the image of the SS on their collars will be enough to send many of the invading cockroaches back to Mexico. Congress will enact strict laws prohibiting citizens and states from protecting, helping or hiding the brown cockroaches, and the enforcement by the SS will be swift and without remorse.

    How will the SS know whom to stop and search? By looking. Liberals will whine that almost all Hispanics and Blacks are citizens and being subjected to random stops and searches is “unconstitutional” or “unfair” or “threatening”. Tough. Hispanics and Blacks make up hardly 30% of citizens. The existence of our nation is on the line. Our antiquated laws no longer protect us from the rapists and murderers. The Trumpenfuhrer will finally do what needs to be done to Make America Great Again – by exterminating the cockroaches.

    While the Trumpenfuhrer tracks down all the Mexicans, Blacks and Muslims there’s this:


    Suicides, accidents, obesity, drugs and alcohol are killing more and more under-65 Americans. Will tax cuts for the wealthy, cuts to healthcare and more debt help them? How?

    Hardly a surprise after 8 years of Barry.

    In what messed up deranged mind do the former have any relation to the question asked? But I can play that game too.

    Mexicans, Somalians, Kenyans, Guatemalans, moslems, middle easterners, illegal aliens and refugees are killing more and more under 65 Americans daily. Will pouring billions into climate change, raising taxes on the wealthy, more abortions and increased welfare help them? How?

    America has already told you what we think of your ideas and those of the democratic party in the last election. This:

    Actually, the opposition received almost 3 million more votes than the Trumpenfuhrer, so he hardly has a mandate to destroy the working classes.

    Anyway, the Republican plan is to consolidate their minority into a permanent ruling minority by voter suppression and elimination. We think they’ll be able to do it too.

    Little lying libshit psycho guy going all in on his conspiracy theories.

    Be afraid, little guy, be very afraid.

  9. Rev.Hoagie® says:

    Let him keep going, drowningpuppies, as long as he and his tribe keep cutting themselves and thrashing about saying and doing the same insane things the less likely they are of ever winning again. Remember, winning is what it’s all about. If they believe creating 6 million fake votes isn’t enough to win they are afraid, very afraid. Their old tricks of vote fraud and fake news isn’t working and no one listens to their chants of racistbigothomophobeislamophobexenophobemisogynist any longer so they are left out in the wilderness with the legacy of The Worst President In History and the failed attempt of Stinky at a coup. That dumb bitch actually lost the presidency TWICE now! Hahahahaha.
