Since the Obama administration has seen fit to sue the State of Arizona and take the teeth out of the state’s new immigration enforcement law, maybe it’s time to fight fire with fire.
Since the Feds are ignoring the wishes of the majority of American citizens, who want our current laws against illegal immigrants enforced, maybe people should use those same courts to sue the Administration and the Federal government for not protecting our borders, for allowing illegal immigrants to drain our economy, and for not protecting us from the many crimes associated with illegal immigrants.
If there isn’t enough money in the Social Security fund to insure that those citizens who paid into it all of their working lives will get the payments they deserve in retirement, couldn’t a case be made that if illegal immigrants weren’t getting payments from a fund that they never paid into, there would be more money available for those who have? Yes, I know, the Feds have ripped off Social Security to pay for other programs for years, but still, the illegals are getting money that Americans are entitled to.
The same for parents whose kids are not getting the best education because school budgets are stretched too thin, to pay to educate the children of illegal aliens. Why can’t they sue, on the basis that if those illegal kids weren’t in school, there would be more for the taxpayers’ children? Could teachers who have lost their jobs due to budget cuts make the same claim, I wonder?
How about those who have been the victims of crimes perpetrated by somebody who is in this country illegally? Isn’t there an argument to be made that, if our borders were secured, those criminals would not have been here to prey on decent people? Especially when the criminals have been arrested before?
In fact, taking that one step further, anybody who was a victim of any crime, no matter who did it, might be able to claim that if the police department had not been stretched so thin dealing with the problems cause by or related to illegal aliens, those officers might have been able to protect them. I’m thinking that any self-respecting ambulance chaser could have a field day with this! (Is there such a thing as a self-respecting ambulance chaser?)
If you’re a hiker, backpacker, hunter, or camper, don’t you deserve to be safe enjoying your sport in southern Arizona, near the border? Since the Feds are ignoring the illegal invaders down there, making it impossible for you to do so, don’t you have a right to sue?
This could go on forever! If you live in a border state where your car insurance rates have gone up, because of the added risk uninsured illegals present to the driving public, shouldn’t you seek compensation? Can’t find a job? Maybe if the government had kept those illegal aliens out, you might be able to find employment. You’ve been harmed,and somebody has to make it right!
Hey, people sue for less cause than that everyday!
Okay, I can already hear folks giving me all of the reasons why this could never work. It would cripple our already overworked judicial system. Who could afford the legal fees involved? Who wants to take on the Administration, and have a battalion of Federal bureaucrats crawling down their throat in retaliation?
But still, I love the idea of giving them a dose of their own medicine, don’t you?
