Obama is Facilitating Illegal Immigrant’s Lawsuit Against U.S.

Judicial Watch

The family of a drug-abusing illegal immigrant who died after being subdued with a stun gun is suing the U.S. government for using excessive force that led to his “wrongful death.”

The illegal immigrant, Anastacio Hernandez, lived in San Diego and was twice deported to his native Mexico. He became unruly when federal agents tried to deport him at the San Ysidro border crossing in May and an officer used a stun gun to control him. Hernandez ended up dying and the San Diego County coroner ruled it a heart attack with methamphetamine abuse and hypertension as contributing factors…

This week the illegal alien’s family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the U.S. government in San Diego, alleging that immigration agents used excessive force to detain the 42-year-old construction worker as they escorted him to Tijuana. The complaint says agents repeatedly beat Hernandez and shot him several times with the stun gun.

The Mexican consulate in San Diego organized a press conference to announce the lawsuit and introduce the family’s attorney, who claims the illegal alien was “frightened” and “pleading for his life” when agents beat him. Mexican authorities have demanded a thorough investigation of the incident and the Obama administration has vowed to oblige.

Of interesting note is that the Justice Department has transferred the case to its civil rights division, which is headed by Thomas Perez, the former Maryland Labor Secretary that has long fought for the rights of illegal immigrants. Perez supports Mexican and Guatemalan-issued cards as valid identification in this country, favors discounted tuition for illegal immigrants at public colleges and universities and supports programs that advice illegal aliens how to deal with police.

Perez also served on the board of a controversial, taxpayer-funded day laborer center (Casa de Maryland) that helps illegal immigrants by operating employment facilities and offering free legal services.

    If the courts permit this case to go on as if it has merit or as if the illegal aliens family has standing on the issue, it will demonstrate to the public that our own government is conspiring to destroy the rule of law regarding the arrest, detention, and deportation of illegal aliens & especially those who have illegally entered into America on multiple occasions & who have been deported on multiple occasions.
    If the true rule of law no longer applies, then we the people must retake our government & oust those who have allowed & even perpetrated the circumvention of our laws. By actually enforcing our immigration laws consistently, we would not be in the situations we are in currently. By ignoring them or finding ways to get around them or to even attack those who do act to enforce them, all we do is prove our elected officials really may be conspiring against this nation, as many already suspect!

    There is a report on Senator Harry Reids Nevada having the highest unemployment rate in the nation. Another report says they have the highest percentage of jobs being worked by illegal aliens at about10%. There is an assertion that New York City has over10% that is working illegally, including in that overall picture 70% of all illegal aliens have a job of some kind. Republican Assemblyman Tim Donnelly wants to use bill AB 26 to eliminate the estimated $11 billion spent by California to provide social services to illegal immigrants each year. Everyone assumes illegal workers are hired just to do farm work? However, they have infiltrated into construction, restaurants, hotels, casinos, department stores, janitorial, landscaping, furniture moving, carpet and tile laying, factories etc. Even trade unions have large numbers of foreign nationals. New illegal newcomers are disrupting the lifestyle of poor legal whites, blacks, Hispanics and other races here already.

    Before this country was snowed under with illegal immigrants and migrants U.S. individuals picked the fruit, mowed lawns, flipped burgers, dug trenches, and cleaned hotel rooms. These entry level jobs were done by guest workers, the working poor, legal immigrants and, seasonal students. In this long dragged out recession there still are plenty of legal immigrants and resident Americans who would do these jobs at a—FAIR– and free market wage. When illegal aliens take these jobs they not only stealing jobs from American high school students, but drive wages down. This unfair competition denies entry level work and a chance for our kids, to start earning money towards college and a car. It also removes opportunity from the lowest of income and legitimate immigrants and so making the American Dream harder to reach.

    Trouble is that neither major party wants secure enforcement, because it would inhibit their agendas. For Democrats that means potentially more votes; while with Republicans its foremost interest is to the business opportunists who profit from cheap labor. On the other side of the coin, the Tea Party demands the border completely sealed and the laws of the 1986 Immigration Act, fully enforced. There is a. wanton refusal of the United States government for previous years to enforce our laws and borders; one can only come to the conclusion that Leftists extremist secret agreements are in affect designed to destroy U.S. sovereignty and overrun the country with cheap labor. In the last ten years to patronize Mexico, we have entered into agreements called NAFTA. In 2005 Harvard Professor George Borjas has reported that illegal aliens displaced American labor at a cost in excess of $133 billion dollars. Every one of us should seriously wonder what the costs are seven years later?

    They have not only poured inferior trade items into America as with its competitor Communist China. But big business conglomerates have gone to Mexico, to pay fewer taxes and no import tariffs to the United States. In return for this poorly negotiated treaty, America has received hundreds of thousands of small farmers disrupted from their land, unable to compete with mega-agriculture. The only winners are the giant corporations like Whirlpool that exported their factory and jobs just across the border and sealing the fate of American workers. Every treaty agreement is about massive profits and import of cut price labor and export of jobs to foreign countries. Little can be done under prior or current administrations, but we have one slender chance to throw out both party members and challenge them with the growth of the Tea Party. Attention: Watch for illegal aliens voting in coming elections.

    Eventually the public will learn cheap labor from illegal immigration is not "cheap." It's subsidized by all of us in the form of our tax dollars paying for their services and makes some dirty employers very wealthy at the expense of all of us. This is highlighted by Arizona’s Governor Brewer, State Senator Pierce pushing for legal sanity, to stop illegal aliens robbing its legal population of hard come dollars. They enter across our borders or by plane or ship and having never paid even one dollar, into public funds. Immediately their children get a free education and the whole family collects free health care and medical procedures. Then any new child born to the parent are instant citizens, with free natal care, supplemented by food stamps, Medicaid, cash payments and other subsidized welfare programs. These are financially serious errors, with the compliments of early Liberal judicial involvement.

    What on Earth are Liberal Czars in Washington thinking, deciding to remove the 1500 National Guards from the toxic border region? Guess its part of placing the undermanned US Border agents under considerable more strain. To me it’s illogical that the border remains unsafe for the ranchers and other landowners who are constantly in dangerous situation, because the movement of drugs and armed illegal aliens crossing their land. Since the inception of the 2006 Secure Fence Act the actual barrier is still not completed, never alone it is only one fence and not two as originally planned. It doesn't take a proverbial rocket scientist that no administration has ever intended to build a structure, which would hold back unceasing groups of foreign nationals. If they ever intended to make illegal immigration a harsh violation of immigration laws as Mexico does, it would be a felony. Simply rational to expect that these policies were never meant to be implemented, in stopping tens of millions already here. Businesses concerns feel very strongly about maintaining access to illegal immigrant jobs, and exert political pressure to prevent enforcement from being effective.

    Another issue that should have been enacted is the Bush pilot program E-Verify. A new version of E-Verify has been produced, so that previous complications have been rectified, but owing to Sen. Harry Reid a nauseous Democrat, sleeping Liberal we are lucky to have this enforcement program at all. Currently its voluntary but now 156.000 businesses are using it, to purge illegal workers from the job market. Secure Communities, the 287g are other worthwhile tools that can further advance Attrition through enforcement. Radical Organizations like La Raza and La Mancha have been teaching the young to hate America. La Raza means “The Race” and their motto is “For our race everything and for all others, nothing.” The fact that we subsidize these dangerous groups, by grants from the taxpayers should be absolutely outrageous to legal Hispanics.
