Illegal Alien U. S. Constitutional Rights

Obviously the courts have ruled that illegal alien’s have certain rights when they are in the U. S. For instance, the right to a deportation hearing. That’s probably an acceptable process, as opposed to a right, as a check and balance to be sure that the government is not deporting a lawful alien or a citizen by mistake. But in that case, it is the welfare of the lawful alien or the citizen that is paramount, not the welfare of the illegal alien.

We may hold certain rights to be inalienable rights, rights given from a higher authority, but that is merely a justification for throwing off the yoke of the British imperialism. It is not the same as deeming that rights accorded as a result of American law need be applicable to everyone in the world. To do otherwise is absurd, and it is not my view of a proper application of American exceptionalism.

Illegal aliens are now filing a lawsuit because Danbury, Connecticut, police arrested illegal aliens for being illegal aliens.

Ten Hispanic immigrants filed a lawsuit on Wednesday against a Connecticut city, its mayor and police chief, and federal agents who led a crackdown on illegal immigration last year.

The suit filed in U.S. District Court in New Haven, Connecticut, claims the arrests violated the civil rights of nine workers and a 10th man who was stopped at a traffic light, including their right to due legal process, free speech and freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures, according to court documents.

Due legal process, free speech and freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures are Constitutional rights. No where in the Constitution, which I know of, expressly states that our laws are applicable to non-citizens. When we choose to extend the courtesy of allowing non-citizens access to our rights, those non-citizens should be required to extend the courtesy of obeying all of our laws. To do otherwise strikes at the core of sovereignty, and the end results are absurd lawsuits and a country filling with people stealing the very essence of the American dream. What is really stupid is that Americans are helping them do it.
