America’s immigration laws are literally tearing families apart, including those with U.S. citizen members, and hurting people who know America as their only home. These are some facts that demonstrate the terrible effect enforcement has on American families.

How to deal with checkpoints
While in this country, you have a 4th amendment right not to be stopped, molested or impeded if you are traveling within the United States. You also have a 5th amendment right to not answer questions, not to incriminate yourself, and you have a right to have an attorney present before any questioning.
Therefore, requiring that people within the confines of this nation stop at checkpoints and answer questions is blatantly unconstitutional. Yet, these people all signed up for the job. Now here is where it gets a little hairy to explain to people my position.
Are all of these law enforcement employees who participated in these unconstitutional exercises equally responsible? I say yes.
Are they all “bad cops”, or are they all just ignorant and negligent? Either way, can we really say it’s just a few rotten apples? I don’t think so.
The more obvious conclusion is that our government has gone rogue and they are willing to do whatever necessary to achieve their ends, even to the detriment of society. They rely on their little minions (aka law enforcement officers) being compartmentalized and unable to grasp the full scope of what they’re participating in. These “law enforcement” employees are not enforcing the law so I cannot call them that. I prefer the term “useful idiots”. They will blindly walk you down the primrose path of tyranny and in the end, ask for blame to be pardoned out of ignorance. Well I say Fuck That!
But hey, this is not surprising to me. I may even be willing to admit that they’re not useful idiots and that they’re doing it on purpose! After all, the government is teaching law enforcement that The Founding Fathers, patriotism, libertarianism, minimal government, and all of this stuff is terrorism.
