ONLY IN U.S. DO ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS FEEL SO ENTITLEDOnly in the U.S. can an illegal immigrant sneak across the border into OUR country, cry foul, and then sue OUR government claiming that their “rights” had been violated. Just last month, three illegal immigrants filed a lawsuit against Cobb County Georgia to have the federal 287(g) program – the program that allows police to hold illegal immigrants who have been arrested on other crimes and notify U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement – declared unconstitutional.
The three men, all of whom had been arrested on various forgery, driving and shoplifting violations sued Cobb County, Georgia Sheriff Neil Warren and others claiming their Miranda “rights” had been violated; claiming that police had illegally seized immigration documents; and had denied them access to lawyers though they in fact had a lawyer. After a judge tossed the case, Sheriff Warrenlamented that it was a shame that taxpayers have to fund the legal costs associated with such lawsuits. We couldn’t agree more.
