At border checkpoints, officers routinely stop all cars and ask if the occupants are citizens. The people in the car don't have to answer that question, but, according to a Border Patrol spokesperson, "they will not be allowed to proceed until the inspecting agent is satisfied that the occupants of vehicles traveling through the checkpoint are legally present in the U.S."
…These checkpoints aren't specific to South Texas. They're located along both the southwestern and northern borders of the US, in what the ACLU calls the "Constitution-Free Zone": the 100 miles within the United States border where Border Patrol can legally do things that, anywhere else in the country, would be considered violations of the Fourth Amendment. That includes the questioning of all drivers at interior checkpoints, as well as the search of electronic devices at the border.
They can buy anyone's work they want. His status is meaningless in regards to this.
Whoa, let's be clear here, I never in this post said we should deport them.
Statement from @joseiswriting: "I’ve been released by Border Patrol."
In 1993, Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) introduced legislation that would limit birthright citizenship to the children of U.S. citizens and legally resident aliens, and similar bills have been introduced by other legislators in every Congress since.
While I probably wouldn't !!!literally die!!! if I were sent to Togo or China or Brazil or Norway and forever barred from the United States, that would fuck my life pretty well up, y'all.
