And Now We’re Talking About Internment Camps?

A Donald Trump supporter cited the United States’ use of Japanese internment camps during World War II as precedent for implementing a registry of Muslim immigrants in an interview on Fox News Wednesday.

President-elect Trump first suggested creating a registry for Muslims in November 2015, and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach told Reuters on Tuesday that Trump’s immigration advisers were drafting a proposal on how this could be implemented. Full Article

  1. Protected vs non-protected by US Constitution

    “Look, the president needs to protect America first,” insisted Higbie, “and if that means having people that are not protected under the Constitution have some sort of registry until we can identify the true threat and where it’s coming from, I support it.”

    Sooooo, those that are supposedly protected by the US Constitution are not in need of some sort of registry? Sounds like that is what you are saying here. Maybe you are saying these US Constitution protected folks too need a registry until they can provide with analytics they are not a true threat and thus are not needed on a registry? Can you please provide clarification on that Carl?

    According to the former lawyer interviewer, the protections are provided once you are here. Um, really? Huh, got a whole class of people who are not afforded that though they should be.

      The constitution acknowledges the rights of all humans but only protects those that are born here or naturalised. BUT, it doesn’t condone what they’re proposing to do.

      It’s what you get when you allow a foot in the door as we’ve done with RSO’S. Once one group gets it, many follow. This is one of the reasons a few of us are so vocal about abolishment. It’s bigger than just us.

        14th Amendment: “No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

        ” It’s bigger than just us.” That is right on. Many here are judging this tiered bill or the registry in general on how it going to affect them as individuals, either good or bad. That is fine, it points out many flaws of the bill, but we have to think of the welfare of this nation. That is all our responsibility as citizens. We can’t let some be classed as non-citizens. Or else, if we let this country go to hell, civil rights are going to disappear for everyone. In the place of rights will be either privilege or obligation. We are already there with these registry laws.

    Please comment on the Mother Jones site. I don’t want to be the only one, but I don’t see any comments yet pointing out the precedent of the s*x offender registry. Let’s take a break from fighting about the damned tiered registry and start educating the public.
