El Paso City Council Tuesday voted to amend the ordinance regarding exemptions issued to sex offenders.
Currently, judges provide some sex offenders with an exemption to an ordinance which regulates where they can live. Now, El Paso Police will be responsible for issuing the exemptions. Full Article
All civil ex felon registration laws impose servitude in violation of the 13th Amendment, and the federal criminal code. Why aren’t THESE laws being enforced?
Another clear violation of due process and separation of powers. The judiciary has to do this as it affects the rights of that person even if it doesnt count as a protected right. You cant have the enforcers of law also deciding who is affected by those laws.
In addition, the argument that the police cant locate the registrant because the judge decided if they were allowed to be exempt from residence restrictions is a complete lie. The exemption doesnt exempt them from registering their address. This reporter is an idiot for not asking about that.
Correct me if I am wrong but I think Police can’t give permission to break the law. Judge can.
Actually, this is in Texas, not New Mexico, so it doesn’t surprise me they went rogue like this. Hopefully, this gets challenged in Fed Court in TX and the old west style of justice being placed here.
