Current and former Republican Texas Supreme Court justices have been caught spreading leftist policy proposals.
Texas Scorecard reports on the latest scheme to ensure that Texas gradually becomes a blue state.
Two Republicans in the Name Only (RINOs) have essentially infiltrated the Texas Supreme Court.
Jordan Clements reveals that Chief Justice Wallace B. Jefferson and current Justice Debra Lehrmann “have put their names on a Restatement of the Law by the American Law Institute that aims to further the far left’s assault on parental rights.”
The ALI has built a reputation for publishing “Restatements of the Law” that simplify what laws say on various matters. Clements notes that “ALI, and their restatements, were once very reliable and respected.”
However, Clements believes that “ALI has begun to move away from simply restating the law to describing what they think the law should be—and that vision of the law is a radical one.”
The late Justice Antonin Scalia, who used to frequently cite ALI restatements, was aware of the trend of judges abusing restatements.
In Kansas v. Nebraska, Scalia declared that “Over time, the Restatements’ authors have abandoned the mission of describing the law and have chosen instead to set forth their aspirations for what the law ought to be.”
Even with Scalia critiquing them, ALI has continued pushing their radical agenda forward. In one of their latest restatements, which ALI Treasurer Wallace Jefferson led with Justice Lehrmann playing an advisory role, ALI stated:
“A parent does not have authority to consent to medical procedures or treatments that impinge on the child’s constitutional rights to bodily integrity or reproductive privacy.”
Clements believes that Jefferson’s and Lehrman’s involvement in this restatement promotes the “radical idea that parents have no right to prevent their child from having an abortion or undergoing gender-reassignment surgery, amongst other medical procedures.”
Texas Scorecard has been aware of Jefferson’s gradual shift towards judicial radicalism. Clements notes that Jefferson lauded the work of Bryan Stevenson, the founder and executive director of the left-wing Equal Justice Initiative.
According to a transcript of ALI’s proceedings in 2018, Jefferson lauded Stevenson’s comments during the meeting. Jefferson praised Stevenson for saying “a few things that I think are very prescient for the work that we are about to undertake and discuss this afternoon.”
At this same meeting, Jefferson was working diligently to push the anti-parent agenda in ALI’s recent restatement.
However, Jefferson met fierce pushback from Justice Michael Massengale, a former judge in the Texas First District Court of Appeals. He highlighted that there is no legal basis for what the restatement is advancing. Massengale even said that “there are no published opinions addressing parental authority to consent.”
The former judge also pointed out that the only reference used in the restatement on the matter of parental rights was an article from Buzzfeed News.
A professor scoffed at Massengale’s concerns when he claimed that they will make the lack of court precedent “clearer in the comment itself.” The former judge countered by demonstrating the lack of precedent which casts doubt about “whether that is an accurate statement of the law.”
Jefferson then dismissed Massengale’s misgivings by giving him thanks and asking for “any other comments or questions.”
After a disappointing legislative session for gun rights, Texas now finds itself in a weird position. Indeed, the state still has laws friendly to gun rights and business, but this relatively free status could be at risk during the next decade.
The surprising performance of Robert “Beto” Francis O’Rourke has worried many conservatives in Texas. Changing demographics in the state are making it more competitive for Democrats.
Now, the GOP must start passing good policies so that it can add more people to its base, while still maintaining the support of hardcore supporters.
From here on out, however, every vote will count and the GOP would be wise to not alienate any part of its base by kicking the can down the road and not delivering on conservative policies.
As the U.S. Elections Approaches, Thousands of Immigrants are Gaining U.S. Citizenship
America’s foreign voter base continues to grow ahead of the 2020 presidential election.
John Binder of Breitbart News noted that this is “adding a bloc of first-time foreign-born voters to the electorate.”
The last few months has seen delays in naturalization ceremonies thanks to the Wuhan virus pandemic. As of June, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) agency restarted ceremonies, with 2,000 immigrants being naturalized according to a report published by Camila DeChalus on June 10.
Other immigrants, who were expected to receive citizenship in 2020, are now pressing legal action against the federal government.
Prior to the crisis, USICS was naturalizing immigrants to the tune of 60,000 monthly.
Binder broke down the overall legal migration numbers:
Legal immigration levels — where 1.2 million immigrants secure Green Cards and nearly a million obtain naturalized citizenship annually — has driven up the nation’s foreign-born voting population to record levels.
The Breitbart writer highlighted another demographic trend that is taking place across America:
In February, Pew Research Center revealed that for the first time since 1970, one-in-ten U.S. voters will have been born outside the country in the 2020 election. High legal immigration levels have also ensured that Hispanic voters will replace black Americans as the largest voting minority for the first time in U.S. history.
According to research from The Atlantic, the New York Times, and Axios, Democrats tend to benefit from an increased foreign-born population.
Binder gave an overview about what these foreign voter numbers look like:
The Atlantic‘s Ronald Brownstein reveals nearly 90 percent of House congressional districts with a foreign-born population above the national average are won by Democrats. This means every congressional district with a foreign-born population exceeding 14 percent has a 90 percent chance of electing Democrats and only a ten percent chance of electing a Republican.
Exit polling data indicated that Trump won 49 percent of native-born Americans’ votes, whereas Clinton won 45 percent of the vote. As far as foreign voters were concerned, Clinton trounced Trump by raking in 64 percent of the immigrant vote, while Trump got only 31 percent.
At the moment, the Binder points out that the “U.S. is on track to import about 15 million new foreign-born voters in the next two decades due to existing legal immigration levels.”
Those 15 million new foreign-born voters include about eight million who will arrive through chain migration, where newly naturalized citizens can bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the country.
The U.S. is undergoing a massive demographic transformation thanks to public policy.
In previous eras, migration waves would at least be contained by legislative pauses that allowed for assimilation.
But now, elites are content by keeping the illegal and legal migration gravy train going without any pause in sight.
Given immigrant voting trends, many freedoms such as the right to bear arms and free speech could be in jeopardy thanks to Democrats gaining a new voting bloc that will help them stay in power for a long time.
