Tennessee’s Historic Lawsuit to Stop Migrant Invasion Will Be Heard in Appeals Court Next Week

The people of Tennessee believe it is unjust and unconstitutional for the feds to force them to resettle dangerous refugees into their communities

Although the tea party is far past its apex, the fights they started are still ongoing and driving the national conversation. A revolutionary Tenth Amendment lawsuit in Tennessee that has the potential to restore the rights of states to reject dangerous migrants from third-world countries is ready to be heard in the court of appeals.

“This case seeks to protect and vindicate the fundamental constitutional status of the State of Tennessee as a sovereign entity not subject to unconstitutional coercion and commandeering by the federal government,” the lawsuit reads.

“This suit is not intended to inflict harm on immigrants or refugees from any nation. Rather, this is a suit that seeks to preserve the constitutional relationship between the federal government and the states as mandated by our nation’s founders,” another excerpt from the lawsuit reads.

Attorney John Bursch of the Thomas More Law Center (TMLC) will be representing the state of Tennessee and its General Assembly next week on behalf of state sovereignty and national security. He will be facing a 3-judge panel of the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. They aim to reverse coercive federal mandates forcing states to fund the refugee resettlement program, which they believe disregards the Tenth Amendment of the Constitution.

“Although Tennessee officially withdrew from participation in the federal refugee resettlement program in 2007, the federal government continues to commandeer state tax dollars to fund the federal program,” the TMLC states.

Previously, a federal judge in Tennessee dismissed the lawsuit in district court. Extreme leftist organizations like The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition (TIRRC) were very pleased with the arbitrary ruling of the costumed lawyer.

“For years, a handful of legislators have led a quixotic campaign to harm refugees and end resettlement to the state,” TIRRC Co-executive Director Stephanie Teatro said in a press release. “Hopefully the dismissal of this shameful lawsuit will put these efforts to rest, allowing lawmakers to instead focus on real issues and solutions that strengthen our communities.”

They may have celebrated too early, as the TLMC is unleashing one of their best legal minds to work on the case. Bursch will represent Tennessee free of charge and has a storied history of successes and honors going back decades. He previously worked as Michigan state solicitor general and served as chair of the American Bar Association’s Council of Appellate Lawyers. He has argued 11 U.S. Supreme Court cases as well as 30 cases in state supreme courts.

“John’s integrity, outstanding litigation skills, and impressive record on appeals prompted me to ask him to join our fight. I can’t think of anyone more qualified to represent Tennessee and the constitutional principles involved in this case,” TMLC President and Chief Counsel Richard Thompson said.

The case will take place on March 19, and if liberal activist judges shamefully refuse yet again to uphold the law in this hearing, the next step for the lawsuit may be the Supreme Court.

Billionaire Mike Bloomberg Pays $16 Million in Fines of Black and Hispanic Felons to Enable Them to Vote

Bribery?

Published

on

Billionaire and former New York City Mayor has raised $16 million dollars to pay off outstanding fines of Black and Hispanic felons in Florida, according to reporting from Axios on Tuesday. Florida restricts the voting rights of convicted criminals until they’ve paid off fines levied for their crimes by the criminal justice system.

It appears that Bloomberg’s fine repayment initative was only available to Black and Hispanic felons. Axios reported that to qualify for Bloomberg’s money, applicants had to have outstanding fines of less than $1,500, be already registered to vote, and to be Black or Latino.

White felons need not apply.

The program has reportedly already cleared the fines of 32,000 felons in the state, enabling them to vote in the election. It erases the punitive aspect of the court system’s fines, which were levied in the first place in order to require convicted criminals to personally make amends for their actions.

Bloomberg’s felon bailout giveaway is legally questionable, and Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz has requested that Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody investigate what he’s doing. If he’s paying felons to vote for any one specific candidate, Bloomberg is in violation of campaign finance rules and could be liable to serve jail time .

The right to vote is fundamental to our democracy and no American should be denied that right,” said a Bloomberg spokesperson when asked about the fine repayment initiative. But it doesn’t seem as if the failed Democratic primary candidate is willing to buy back the voting rights of individuals who might be less inclined to vote for Joe Biden in November.

Bloomberg already tried and failed to buy the nomination in the Democratic primary, and now he’s trying to buy the crucial swing state of Florida for Joe Biden. Corrupt oligarchs should not be allowed to abuse the political system with impunity.
