Judge Rules Border Fence Illegal
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 21 March 2014 | John Semmens

Posted on 03/22/2014 1:35:52 PM PDT by John Semmens

U.S. District Court Judge for the District of Columbia Beryl Howell ruled that “the construction of any kind of barrier to the free movement of people across the US/Mexican border is illegal. There can be no disputing that such a barrier would explicitly target a protected ethnic minority. This violates the equal protection clause.”

As the Judge sees it, “in order to pass muster, a policy, program, or enforcement must be shown to affect all racial, ethnic, religious, sexual, and sexual-orientation subsets of the population in roughly equal proportion to each group’s percentage of the population. Since a fence along the United States’ southern border would disproportionally affect Hispanics it is impermissible under our laws.”

Howell suggested that “if Congress is determined to build a border fence they should look north rather than south. The mix of populations on both sides of the US/Canada border is roughly similar. No one group would be disproportionally disadvantaged by having their movements over this border impeded.”

While not part of the case being adjudicated, Judge Howell hinted that “deportations should be subjected to scrutiny, as well. There is little doubt in my mind that a disproportionate share of those being forced to leave this country against their will are Hispanic. This would also appear to violate the equal protection clause.”

The Mexican Government hailed Howell’s decision. Mexico’s former foreign minister, Jorge Castañeda, insisted that “there must be no impediments to the migration of Mexican nationals into the land that was stolen from our country by American aggression in the 19th century.”

It’s always interesting how judges and LW activists will bend over backwards and write all kinds of laws protecting those who are not from this continent. Yet they will do nothing for the Native Americans who are still living in poverty on reservations. I mean, opening the border to let others come and take away from those already here. And they take that wealth back to their own countries and invest nothing here. Why do judges like this hate America?

Beyond stupid! Are fences between neighbors still OK? If so, why? What does this moron judge say about Mexico's southern border? Who is this judge? What is his/her name? Can we send him/her to a wrong side of the border Border Town without protection?

This is so outrageous that I immediately looked for the Semmons satire heading. That is not to say it couldn’t happen tomorrow in our Bizarro world.

explicitly target a protected ethnic minority.

Mexican nationals? Where in the Constitution are non-citizens protected from anything?
