A Mexican woman in Arizona was pulled over for having a cracked windshield. Police soon discovered she was in the country illegally and driving without a license and without proof of insurance. The woman was arrested and taken to a nearby Border Patrol office. Aided by the American Civil Liberties Union, she has now filed a lawsuit that states the police violated her Fourth Amendment right "to be free from unreasonable seizures by prolonging the length of her stop after the original purpose of the traffic stop was completed."
ACLU spokesperson Dan Pochoda said 'the officers didn't understand it's generally not a criminal act for an immigrant without permission to be in the country to remain in the United States, so the deputies' belief that she was here illegally didn't provide constitutional justification for detaining her.'
I've got news for you Dan. You may be an attorney and the legal director of the ACLU in Arizona but federal law says the woman is not supposed to be in the country without permission and proper documentation. Because the Obama administration (and apparently the ACLU) choose to ignore the law doesn't make it less illegal. The whole problem with our immigration policies, besides liberal politicians, is the fact that we don't enforce the laws as written.
The woman acknowledged to the police officers that she was in the country illegally and that she had applied for a visa citing domestic violence protection as the cause but that her visa has not yet been approved. The officers, in accordance with state laws concerning immigration enforcement - a law that has been upheld in the United States Supreme Court - took her to federal authorities so her immigration status could be determined.
Interestingly, she did not claim racial or ethnic profiling as part of her suit.
In other news,you've no doubt heard of the Muslim convert who beheaded a woman at her work site the other day in Moore, Oklahoma. Alton Nolan had recently been fired from his job at the same site after allegedly proselytizing his Muslim beliefs and saying women should be stoned for an offense, which led to an argument. He returned on Thursday with a knife and attacked two women, severing one's head completely and leaving the other in critical condition before being shot by a company official who happened to be an off-duty Sheriff's deputy. (A good guy with a gun can stop a bad guy with a knife as well.)
While the FBI has been called in to investigate the possible connection between Nolan's Islamic faith and the beheading, Moore Police are denying such a connection exists saying there is no evidence that he has any ties to ISIS. They are calling it workplace violence.
I guess it's just another typical, random beheading after being fired. You know - the kind we see on the news every day. What? You mean we don't see them every day in the United States? Oh yeah... that happens in Muslim countries. (hint, hint)
One thing is certain - if Nadal Hasan, who killed 13 people while shouting "Allahu Ackbar" at Fort Hood a couple of years ago, wasn't charged with terrorism this guy certainly won't be. It will simply be called a case of workplace violence, committed by a man who professes to be Muslim and in a manner consistent with recent killings committed by that "not Islamic" group, ISIS.
Political correctness could very well one day destroy the United States.
