Dangerous Overcrowding at Border Patrol Facilities

Source: Buzz Feed News

"The Declaration of Independence. We celebrate American Independence Day on the Fourth of July every year. We think of July 4, 1776, as a day that represents the Declaration of Independence and the birth of the United States of America as an independent nation."

The definition of independence is freedom from the control or influence of others.

In Wong Win v. United States (1896), the court ruled that:

It must be concluded that all persons within the territory of the United States are entitled to the protection by those amendments [Fifth and Sixth] and that even aliens shall not be held to answer for a capital or other infamous crime, unless on presentment or indictment of a grand jury, nor deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law.

In summary, the entire case of illegal aliens being covered by and protected by the Constitution has been settled law for 129 years and rests on one word: "person." It is the word "person" that connects the dots of "due process" and "equal protection" in the 14th Amendment to the U.S Constitution and it is those five words that make the Constitution of the United States and its 14th amendment the most important political document since the Magna Carta in all world history.

"Aliens," legal and illegal, have the full panoply of constitutional protections American citizens have with three exceptions: voting, some government jobs, and gun ownership.

Set aside our humanity, our altruism our code of ethics, because I don't believe our Government nor some of our citizens do have any conscience.

These are human beings, people who are supposed to have protection under the Constitution under the "Due Process".

And yet here they are locked up in a detention camp; detention camp isn't even an appropriate name to these cages. Nor, we could call it a prison, even though prisoners committed crimes, they still have rights to safe humane lodgings.
Concentration Camp is a more apt description!!

Happy 4th of July!!
