Trump calls for fundamentally changing U.S. Constitution
Remember when the 30 percenters screamed at anyone who would listen that President Obama was "shredding the Constitution?"
Now their cult leader, Preznit Porn Star Shagger actually told the American people and the world that he'd like to shred the U.S. Constitution, and his cultists are silent.
Trump advocates depriving undocumented immigrants of due-process rights
"...Trump's attack on the due-process rights of immigrants follows a week in which he has been fixated on the immigration court system, which he has called "ridiculous." The president has balked at proposals from Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and other lawmakers to add court personnel to help process more immigration cases. Democrats and immigrant rights advocates sought to shame Trump for saying he wants to deny illegal immigrants their due-process rights. "
America rules by law," tweeted Rep. Gerald Connolly, D-Va., "not by presidential diktat."
Omar Jadwat, director of the American Civil Liberties Union's Immigrants' Rights Project, said in a statement:"What President Trump has suggested here is both illegal and unconstitutional. Any official who has sworn an oath to uphold the Constitution and laws should disavow it unequivocally."
And at least one Republican lawmaker spoke out against Trump's threat. Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, a libertarian-leaning Republican who has often criticized the president, responded to the controversy by quoting the Fifth Amendment of the Constitution.
"No person shall be ... deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law," Amash tweeted."
Trump cultists are okay with Preznit Porn Star Shagger fundamentally changing America by disregarding the Constitution's guarantee of due process for everyone.
Scholars, activists blast Trump tweets ripping due process for undocumented immigrants
"The Constitution could get in the way of Trump's plans to cut legal corners, says legal scholar Carl Tobias, a professor at the University of Richmond School of Law.
"Congressional legislation and the Constitution mandate due process for the people Trump mentions," Tobias told USA TODAY. "
Congress would need to legislate what Trump says he wants, and this seems unlikely. Even were Congress to pass legislation, federal courts would probably find that it violates the Constitution." Trump drew outrage after his tweet Sunday that "when somebody comes in, we must immediately, with no Judges or Court Cases, bring them back from where they came." Omar Jadwat, director of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, emphatically agreed with Tobias that Trump's plan is illegal and unconstitutional.
"Any official who has sworn an oath to uphold the Constitution and laws should disavow it unequivocally," Jadwat said. Nihad Awad, executive director of the Council on American Islamic Relations, called Trump's tweet an "affront to our values" and said all Americans should be outraged.
"This clear call for an end to the constitutionally guaranteed right to due process is symptomatic of an administration that disdains both the Constitution and our judicial system,"
