Is it possible to sue both President Bush and Congress over illegals?
This is something I've been wondering about for a long, long time.
I know there are FReepers who are legal and constitutional scholars and experts on this matter.
Is it or would it be possible to get some sort of class action lawsuit going against President Bush and Congress to get them to inforce our immigration laws and to deport ALL illegals?
Frankly, I'm more interested in suing the ACLU--not over illegal immigration, but for their unwarranted intrusiveness into society. Put them on defense for a change.
Well, first you would have to show damages.
I bet you think that's funny? ;^)
Americans can petition their government for redress of grievances. A petition is not exactly an enforceable suit.
Interesting that illegal aliens can sue our government and win, BUT citizens have no recourse and are not permitted to sue the government.
Google “sovereign immunity”.
Probably not otherwise it would have been done by now. Changing the Constitution to mandate enforcement is the only thing that’ll make this government understand but even then they’ll find ways to get around it.
That's the plan I think even though it's really about the bottom line, nothing else. If the population or the country suffers that's the cost of doing business. They apparently in government don't believe we're capable or clever enough to grow and maintain a strong economy other than by importing massive numbers of people. They've never heard of mechanization or increased use of technology to supplement warm, cheap bodies and so as a result in 50 years we'll be nothing but a polyglot of 400+ million and growing.
The best I can offer is something going back to law school about 20 years ago. There is a procedure called a Writ of Mandamus. I believe Mandamus is from the same latin root for mandate or mandatory. My recollection is that it is the vehicle used to ask a court to order an agency of government to perform what it is legally obligated to perform. This question comes to my mind and I keep thinking back to that writ and dreaming about a lawsuit entitled
“We the People of the United States of America
The President, ICE, DOJ, FBI and State and Local LE”
By way of complaint, Plaintiffs demand that defendants do their freakin’ job!!!!
Its all about greed and power. More people - (illegals) means more votes and money for those in power.
I’m beginning to think that there will be very few - if any - politicans that make it into Heaven.
