Illegals forced to clean prison toilets sue for $5 million
Illegal aliens who claimed they were forced to clean toilets while in detention have launched a lawsuit for at least $5 million. Those must have been some really dirty toilets!
Tens of thousands of immigrants detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement were forced to work for $1 day, or for nothing at all – a violation of federal anti-slavery laws – a lawsuit claims.
The lawsuit, filed in 2014 against one of the largest private prison companies in the country, reached class-action status this week after a federal judge’s ruling. That means the case could involve as many as 60,000 immigrants who have been detained.
The lawsuit, filed against GEO Group on behalf of nine immigrants, initially sought more than $5 million in damages. Attorneys expect the damages to grow substantially given the case’s new class-action status.
The original nine plaintiffs claim that detainees at the ICE facility are forced to work without pay – and that those who refuse to do so are threatened with solitary confinement.
Specifically, the lawsuit claims, six detainees are selected at random every day and are forced to clean the facility’s housing units.
Detainees work for up to eight hours a day, 40 hours a week, cleaning bathrooms, showers, toilets, windows, patient rooms and staff offices, waxing floors, and preparing and serving meals.
Sorry, but the illegal aliens don't have valid legal claims. Have a look at the 13th Amendment:
Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.” Simply put: Incarcerated persons have no constitutional rights in this arena; they can be forced to work as punishment for their crimes.
Those of you who are legal scholars or have watched movies like Shawshank Redemption will know this. In Shawshank, the character played by Tim Robbins volunteered for very low-paying jobs, trying to shake the pursuit of the local LGBTQ community.
The reason prisons can pay little or nothing is because of the 13th Amendment. People in prison have much fewer rights. One of the biggest rights they lose is their freedom, and their choice of action, or, in some cases, inaction.
But if they get the right judge, it's conceivable these illegals could cash out – and you, the taxpayer, will pay for it. Who knew that cleaning a toilet could pay so well?
1) Are there some jobs, perhaps, that illegal aliens just won't do?

Mexico opens legal aid centers all over US to defend illegals
By Rick Moran
Can the behavior of the Mexican government get any more outrageous than this?
Mexico has opened more than 50 legal aid centers at its consulates across the US to assist illegal aliens in their legal fight to stay in the country.
Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray exhorted the U.S. government to respect the rights of Mexicans and called for the United States to allow a path to legality for undocumented migrants.
"We are not promoting illegality," Videgaray said, according to a video of an event at the Mexican consulate in New York provided by the foreign ministry, saying that Mexico supported following the law, but that means respecting human rights.
Pray tell, if they support "following the law," why are they defending those who break it?
"Today we are facing a situation that can paradoxically represent an opportunity, when suddenly a government wants to apply the law more severely," Videgaray said.
"It is becoming more than evident that to apply the law, which is the obligation of any state, would also imply a real economic damage to this country which highlights the need for immigration reform, an immigration reform that resolves once and for all the legal status of the people," Videgaray said.
I think it very touching how much Mr. Videgaray cares about "real economic damage" to the US.
And we've already resolved "the legal status of the people." They are here illegally. What else is necessary to know?
Late last month, Videgaray expressed "worry and irritation" about Trump's new policies to U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Homeland Security chief John Kelly when they visited Mexico for talks on immigration and security.

What's Videgaray so "irritated" about? Mexico isn't caring and feeding the 11 million illegal aliens currently in the US. Is he
"irritated" that Mexico may have to take on
some of the burden of caring for their own
Mexico is not being a good neighbor. But, of course, they aren't interested in good relations as much as they are concentrating on keeping the millions of Mexicans who came to the US illegally as far away from Mexico as possible. To do that, they are willing to defend the indefensible.
The Mexican government is faced with a choice; cooperate with the US government to make the deportation of their citizens less of a disruption in their citizen's lives or fight tooth and nail to keep the illegals on US soil.
They appear to have chosen the latter.
THE TRUMP AMNESTY…. Yes, he lied again!
"If true, it shows Trump being the ultimate cynic and not having the courage to state his true beliefs to the American public who elected him. That's always been my biggest problem with Trump: his lack of integrity and consistent belief system." ----- ED STRAKER
