Typical Leftist defense of draconian government force, as long as a single citizen does not object to the presence of a person who is here illegally, every citizen in every State is obligated to pay for that illegals support (and crimes); the Tyranny of the minority at the expense of the rightful citizens.
If you decide to provide safe haven in your home to a wanted pedophile are they also protected by natural law?
How about a “farmer” with a gun who wants to protect a murderer who is invited onto his property?
Are Terrorists also exempt from the law if they can find a legal citizen property owner to house them?
There is no natural right to encroach on any nations soil without the consent of that nations duly elected government.
That does not change just because some farmers decided they wanted slaves who would be paid from the public treasury.
No human rights are violated by passing and enforceing laws regarding the legal criteria for migrating here.
There are however MANY rights violated when citizens are forced at gunpoint to subsidize their illegal immigrant competition in the labor market, not to mention the countless other laws that illegals are given a pass to while citizens are not.
But you and all of the other open border/permanent Leftist majority proponents never seem to give a crap about “natural law” when you are pointing your government guns in our faces to buy your votes.
Funny how laws and rights only matter to you when they are used to force the citizens to buy you an electoral majority of dependent slaves.
In your world there are no goalposts. Do you decide who enters onto your property? The fact is, the American People have a collective right to determine who enters upon their property called the United States of America.
As I correctly pointed out, in your world there are no goalposts. In my world we have a written Constitution which establishes goalposts and legitimate functions of our federal government, one of which is to “repel invasions”. Try reading our Constitution someday.
“protections” simply means they have access to due process while here, Madison did not live in a time where “protections” meant using government force to take the property of citizens and give it to criminals who are not citizens and live above all of the laws that citizens are forced to adhere to.
You quite simply have no Right (natural or otherwise) to force United States Citizens to subsidize your labor needs at gunpoint.
Nothing has really changed since before the Civil War, the Left still want their slaves and they still are willing to use force to keep them.
This is utter nonsense. The Constitution explicitly forbade the Congress from limiting immigration until 1808 leaving it to the several states. If this doesn’t imply that AFTER 1808 they regained sole and absolute control I don’t know what would suffice for your ideas.
You constantly talk about rights and “natural law”. Don’t forget this:
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect THEIR Safety and Happiness.
THEIR rights, THEIR Safety, THEIR Happiness. THEY would be “We, the People of the United States” Not the rights, safety and happiness of every being on the planet.
IMMIGRANTS, AS. NOT illegal invaders. There is NO SUCH THING as a “natural right” to go wherever you want on the planet and take whatever you want from the inhabitants therein. That’s simply stupid. There’s no other word for it.
We didn’t have “illegals” in the 18th century, because the system didn’t try to block people from coming here.
There is a bare minimum requirement for how our system can treat innocent people trying to migrate to here. They are not chattel, they are not “optional”, they have a right to come here, and the system cannot be a obstacle to that.
You can regulate them, but you cannot block innocent people. Natural Rights, by their very definition, either apply to everyone or they don’t exist.
NONE of these invaders are “innocent”. They all KNOW that what they are doing is against the law and they do it anyway…INTENTIONALLY defying the laws of the United States. Again, there simply IS NO SUCH THING AS A NATURAL LAW that allows anyone to go wherever they please and confiscate the property of those who live there legally.
That’s A STUPID concept, AS. Try again. For the third time, THERE IS NO “NATURAL LAW” that permits one to go anywhere on the planet one wants to go and take from the inhabitants there whatever you wish. Such a “natural law” simply doesn’t exist. The number of sovereign nations is INCREASING…not decreasing. There’s a REASON that’s happening and it’s not because everyone wants “open borders.”
BS. Are you trying to tell us that no illegal takes anything from American citizens without their permission?
I don’t SEEK to block you from inviting your cousin to work…but NEITHER of you have a “natural right” for him to come to the U.S. or for you to hire him if he does. He may come and work for you IF he meets the criteria established by the government–including your assurance that he won’t become a burden on the taxpayer, but NOT if he’s a known criminal, a terrorist or a carrier of some virulent disease.
