I think it's always the inherent lack of knowledge--or the belief that people will just go along with what they say without question bc they "quote" the constitution, so they must be right--that pisses me off the most.

People seeking asylum =/= invasion

Cuz there are people out there like me who go, hey, wait, that's not right. States can't just claim any group of people coming across the border is an invasion and decide to go to war with them bc of Article 1 Section 10.

That's ludicrous.

Turns out, I'm correct.
@ImmJusticeNOW @matt_cam @axidentaliberal @ifindkarma @B52Malmet @TrinityResists @SirineShebaya @jomareewade @RepJerryNadler @SenSchumer Now, one thing you can do is go aaaalllll the way back to the Constitutional Convention, if you want to know what the Founders were thinking, and see what the discussion was around Clause 3 where it mentions, that states may not make war "unless actually invaded."

So I did.
@ImmJusticeNOW @matt_cam @axidentaliberal @ifindkarma @B52Malmet @TrinityResists @SirineShebaya @jomareewade @RepJerryNadler @SenSchumer Notes taken of the various discussions on Clause 3, show the full original clause was: "...unless it shall be actually invaded by Enemies, or the Danger of Invasion be so imminent..."

Clearly "Enemies" does not refer to civilians looking for refuge, or even economic opportunity.

But turning them into a War-Powers-Turn-Back-the-"Invasion" Army, would instead run afoul of Posse Comitatus.

Nope. Cuccinelli's just wrong.

What kind of person takes a look at people--men, women & children--*fleeing* violence, seeking refuge, and says: that's the enemy, that's who we make war on.

Nor anywhere near vulnerable children, the asylum process or anything to do with migrant populations at all.

Ken Cuccinelli &Stephen Miller are two of a kind.

Keep 'em out!
