Political correctness gives them more rights than citizens, unfortunately
FindLaw's United States Supreme Court case and opinions.
United States Supreme Court
UNITED STATES v. VERDUGO-URQUIDEZ, (1990)
Argued: November 7, 1989 Decided: February 28, 1990
After the Government obtained an arrest warrant for respondent - a Mexican citizen and resident believed to be a leader of an organization that smuggles narcotics into this country - he was apprehended by Mexican police and transported here, where he was arrested. Following his arrest, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents, working with Mexican officials, searched his Mexican residences and seized certain documents. The District Court granted his motion to suppress the evidence, concluding that the Fourth Amendment - which protects "the people" against unreasonable searches and seizures - applied to the searches, and that the DEA agents had failed to justify searching the premises without a warrant. The Court of Appeals affirmed.
Relying on INS v. Lopez-Mendoza, 468 U.S. 1032 - where a majority assumed that illegal aliens in the United States have Fourth Amendment rights - the court observed that it would be odd to acknowledge that respondent was entitled to trial-related rights guaranteed by the Fifth and Sixth Amendments, but not to Fourth Amendment protection.
Like a said illegal aliens have more rights than citizens in this country because of political correctness… Fuck the nanny state
Over $54K Raised for Vendor After Police Seize His Money
It would be funny if the city seized that too.
Why does the right wing claim it is a "work ethic from the Age of Iron" that is important in modern corporate welfare times?
No it is not boom. The officer just says what he saw and that is it. The money is not proof of anything by itself and any fine is not dependent on how much he made. It was a illegal seizure.
According to the Constitution they do have rights- but who are we kidding- you have never read the Constitution....
Civil Forfeiture laws are really a Rightwing thing- which is why Jeff Sessions has announced he will be increasing Federal civil forfeiture.
I am against civil forfeiture laws myself- I don't think anyone's property should be legally seized unless convicted of a crime- and that property is related to the crimes.
And by 'more rights' you mean 'less rights'
Everyone in the United States is protected by the Bill of Rights- but citizens are protected by other rights- among them is that a citizen cannot be deported.
