The war agaisnst the immigration laws of this country continues. Confessed illegal aliens have filed suit against Customs and Border Protection for catching illegal aliens at Ports-of-Entry along the Texas border. http://www.brownsvilleherald.com/news/cbp-106963-lawsuit-targets.html
The origin of this story is the fraudulent use of birth certificates issued claiming either late birth or birth certified by a mid-wife. Now there has been no need for use of a mid-wife in the U.S. since the 1960s as the federal government has provided welfare medical payments for the poor to doctors and hospitals since then. Perhaps mid-wives were used up to the 50s, but even then, they were quite uncommon and certainly not used much in depopulated pre-1964 south Texas. Back then the hispanic population was small and most were smart enough to go to a hospital or doctor for birth. The increase in hispanic population in south Texas, especially on the border, did not occur until after legal and the consequential illegal immigration increased after the Kennedy 1964 Act.
As the story points out, dozens of mid-wives have been convicted of falsifying birth certificates and any such birth certificate is prima facia evidence of fraud.
But the ACLU does not exist to protect America, but to aid criminals, communists and Islamists. Here we see the ACLU strategy of protecting those who violate U.S. immigration laws, knowing that the untimate beneficiary will be Islamists who will soon be buying up birth certificates issued by Mexican mid-wives.
But this just proves that the Bush Administration rule that minors can enter without passports is part of the problem. The rule should be that no one can pass the border without a passport, including minors, citizens, border crossing card holders, and legal permanent residents. I can see the Obama Regime settling this lawsuit on favorable terms for illegal aliens, just as Governor Gray Davis settled the Proposition 87 lawsuit to benefit illegal aliens.
