Central American Caravan Members Sue Over Violations Of Their Constitutional Rigths

You can’t even call them illegal aliens or even immigrants at this point, since they haven’t made it the the U.S. border. Yet, they’re making a wackadoodle claim, which you can bet Democrats and #NeverTrumpers are like “yeah, exactly, sue!”

Migrants traveling to US sue Trump, government; claim violation of constitutional rights

A dozen 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 due process under the Fifth Amendment.

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.”

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 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.

They also have an issue with Trump’s claim that he will build tent cities to house them, which tells you right there that they plan on arriving at the U.S. border, getting caught, claiming asylum, then disappearing after being released.

According to law, they have to actually be at the border before they can be denied asylum (which would also include showing up at a U.S. embassy. They aren’t at either. Further, the Constitution makes it clear that the U.S. government is tasked with stopping all foreign invasion. This is an invasion.

It is interesting, though, that these members of the caravan mob chose the 5th Amendment: how many of them do not want to say that they are criminals, as well as having already be deported at least once? And it is about criminal proceedings. An asylum claim is not a criminal matter. Are they claiming they are all criminals? Further, this is a forward looking suit, one based on nothing actually haven happened, because they aren’t here yet. They have no legal right to our country, and, get this, it costs lots of money to file this type of suit. Where’s it coming from when we’re told these are just poor people? And by refusing Mexico’s claim of asylum, they really have blown their shot.

    As aliens and law breakers, they have no Constitutional rights.

    They must think only Demos and Whigs are still on the Federal bench.

      Do you really believe that non-citizen residents in the US, even ones here illegally, have no Constitutional rights?

      Have you read our Constitution?
