FREEPER ACTIVISM: If duly elected officials, under oath, are encouraging ILLEGALS to break the law, to obtain the unlawful right to vote, and obtain unauthorized government benefits using fraudulent documentation, and if elected and appointed officials did, in fact, allow illegals to break the law to serve on municipal councils, and if illegals are making monetary (taxing) decisions for U.S. Citizens, this might be a violation of the Hobbs Act. If elected officials took campaign contributions from said illegals, this could be characterized as extortion, and/or bribery, and a violation of the Hobbs Act.
The Hobbs Act was used recently to nail four TENN state legislators and their aides in an extortion scheme. The TENN groups was arrested under the federal Hobbs Act, charging extortion, conspiracy to extort and attempted extortion, and accepting bribes as an agent of the state. The Hobbs Act covers extortion by public officials, as follows: 2403 Hobbs Act -- Extortion By Force, Violence, or Fear

Supervisory jurisdiction over 18 U.S.C. § 1951 is exercised by the following offices with respect to the offenses noted:

3. All other extortion and robbery offenses not involving public officials or labor-management disputes are supervised by the Terrorism and Violent Crimes
We demand that the DOJ enforce the laws, and prosecute anyone who aids and abets illegal activities, including legislators who ignore rampant lawbreaking. EMAIL ASKDOJ@USDOJ.GOV
And let us not allow the opposing side to frame this argument in terms of race--that is certainly not what I am about.
It is also not a question of economics, although economically there is an element for discussion.
The issue IS National Security--and if our government cannot get their mind around that in view of what has been going on in the streets, then the republic is in danger...
If illegals (non-citizens) are given amnesty for breaking any of those federal laws, then amnesty should be given for ALL citizens who have broken any of those laws. If not, I think that it would violate the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution. And if more illegals are allowed to come into the country and permitted to break these laws, then citizens should be able to do the same. Whoo Hoo! No more paying taxes! Where do I sign up for my government check? (sarc....just in case the Feds are reading this ;)
