    Do Illegal Aliens Have Constitutional Rights?
    Courts Have Ruled They Do
    By Robert Longley,

    While illegal aliens do not enjoy all of the rights granted to citizens by the Constitution, specifically the rights to vote or possess firearms, these rights can also be denied to U.S. citizens convicted of felonies. In final analysis, the courts have ruled that, while they are within the borders of the United States, illegal aliens are granted the same fundamental, undeniable constitutional rights granted to all Americans.

    Immigrants' Rights
    No Human Being Is Illegal


    The Constitution guarantees the fundamental rights and civil liberties of every person in this country. Upholding the rights of the politically disenfranchised is vital; when the government has the power to deny legal rights and due process to one group of people, it puts all our rights in danger. More

    Now I fully understand why we have 20 million illegal aliens in this country.
    When the constitution was written there were no illegal aliens in this country or any immigration laws.

    What is an immigrant?
    An Immigrant is a person who has citizenship in one country but who enters a different country to set up a permanent residence. Just entering another country does not make you an immigrant. In order to be an immigrant you must have citizenship in one country, and you must have gone to a different country with the specific intention of living there.

    I think my left testicle has more "Constitutional rights " that I DO. I think, perhaps it's time to abolish the Constitution and find something better that rings "true" and follows common sense. About TIME!

    Where does it say in the Constitution that the citizens of La Republic of Mexico shall enjoy the rights of American citizens?

    Where does it say that border jumpers will be given the same benefits of the American citizens and that the American citizens shall enjoy paying for those said benefits?

    Stand up America and get a back bone and demand our politicians deport illegal aliens and close the ports and borders. Or we will vote them out of office!

    We are talking the average Mexican national who is here working on my neighbir's lawn not a sworn militant enemy of America caught planting a bomb on a bridge I assume.

    What rights would you like to give the yard workers?

    Speedy trial....

    Right to become a citizen, all them immigration regulations on Asians a century ago look so quaint and poorly conceived now.

    Freedom of speech...

    Perhaps what rights would you take away?

    Get caught doing something illegal and we can send them to prison in Cuba as an enemy combatant...

    Try to intercept paycheck money leavong the country....this will give the hard worming fellas more incentive to bring their families here and stay to better my country.

    More ideas?

    Courts do say this, but common sense doesn't. In America, common sense is racist.

    No, it protects all persons’ rights, citizen and non-citizen.

    In Plyler the court ruled that the designation of a person by a government agency, such as DHS, does not trump the Constitution and due process. “Illegal aliens’ are innocent until proven guilty, as with anyone else.

    This is important because we do not want government agencies, politicians, and bureaucrats deciding who is a citizen and who is not, who is entitled to his rights and who is not.

    That would destroy all of our civil liberties and the Republic itself.
