Is a bill the WSJ editorial board, with its long history of advocating for open borders, should be honored to have helped give life to. From the text of the proposed legislation:

TITLE VI—DECRIMINALIZE MIGRATION
SEC. 601. REPEALING MIGRATION CRIMINAL LAWS.

(a) Criminal Penalties For Entry At Improper Time Or Place.—Section 275 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1325) is repealed.

(b) Criminal Penalties For Reentry.—Section 276 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1326) is repealed.

The 35 initial sponsors of this open borders bill are demographically representative of new America, one in which border control of any kind is viewed as a fundamental aspect of white supremacy. The racial/ethnic breakdown of the legislators co-sponsoring the bill:

Of the Asians, three are East (one Chinese, one Taiwanese, one Japanese) and one is South (Indian). Of the whites, one appears to be culturally Protestant, one is Catholic, and one is Jewish.

The bill does more than decriminalize violating the country’s immigration laws. It also protects serious and violent criminals who have additionally violated those immigration laws from being removed from the country for having done so:

It’s not just border enforcement that is inherently viewed as white supremacist. Increasingly, law enforcement of any kind, in any capacity, is perceived to be incorrigibly white supremacist in nature. This is our future. Bane, despite looking like a white supremacist’s delusional fevered dream of what a white supremacist looks like, approves:

  1. It’s just another blatant attempt to game politics in favor of the left through immigration – an honest media would repeatedly ask the sponsors to explain how this is good for ordinary Americans, which of course would immediately make evident that it’s not supposed to be.

    The interesting that about all this is that white and black lefties seem to think they will retain control of the Democratic party even after its largest constituency is low income Latinos. While I think whites will manage to maintain their grip on a lot of the party machinery (after all, they bring the money), blacks will increasingly be shunted to the side, which in the end will result in whites unsuccessfully trying to split the baby. There will be an opportunity there for the GOP, but I think that it will take a solid 20 years to play out, so the right better get used to the idea that after Trump leaves office there is going to be a long period of time when the best it can hope for is occasional control of the Senate.

  2. Fortunately, we now have Restorative Justice. Its basic tenet is that minorities were often prosecuted for violent crime in the past, and that the solution now is to prosecute white people who aren’t committing enough crime of any kind.

    If that’s not disparate impact, what is? We need to focus more on the many white people still alive in the USA, who are taking up space which could be better used by importing more africans, asians, and latinos.

    It’s well known that the Rule of Law is just a cover for White Supremacy. Both of these notions have expired and have exceeded their shelf life. Same with civility.

  3. They should be tried for treason and hung, for it is a betrayal of our country, it’s people, and the Constitution to destroy of the rule of law and the territorial integrity of the country, and allow invasion of the country.

  4. A year ago, I would have shrugged at such a bill. Now it just causes mild concern.

    “blacks will increasingly be shunted to the side, which in the end will result in whites unsuccessfully trying to split the baby.”

    i think that is largely accurate this time around.

  5. This looks like a stunning own goal.

    It perfectly tees up the stock-in-trade “tough on crime” stance for the GOP’s Boomer audience, which otherwise has been in a steady decline.

    On another point, this is why self-determination matters. Non-whites don’t respect a white legal system. But they would respect a system that their people designed and operated.

    Or instead of an own goal, it's indicative of a play for the long game. The squad, all of whom are probably lifers, know how the story ends. They will be heroes who got in on the ground floor.

    This non-white is an ardent admirer of the Anglo-American jurisprudence. However, I am hardly a fan of the continental (e.g. French) legal system, let alone Greek or Russian ones, which are also “white.”

    "Non-whites don’t respect a white legal system. But they would respect a system that their people designed and operated."

    Of course, all the while expecting whites to pay for it!
  6. From a philosophical point of view, I agree, there should be no criminal penalties for illegal entry.

    Illegal entry is invasion. This is outside of the scope of the criminal justice system. These people are not entitled to participate in the system. The humane thing to do would be to have the military remove them immediately. The more effective but of course, cruel thing to do would be to make them outlaws- fair game for America’s constantly growing population of sadists.

    What is this, Krypteia? Encouraging the most vicious segment of our population to engage in extrajudicial killings, rapes, torture, assaults, and robberies against “outlaws” won’t restore the rule of law - it will destroy the latter. Sooner or later such people will make victims of others who are not outlaws.

    Even in war, the higher command is at pains to restrain unnecessary brutality toward the enemy, not so much because it cares about the enemy, but because transgression of such norms is highly detrimental to discipline that is crucial for fighting effectiveness. Unrestrained, extrajudicial violence is bad for everyone, friend or foe. There is a reason why war is often called ritualized violence.

    Maybe

    All four squad members are freshmen, and while they will enjoy easy primary victories this year; should Trump be re-elected they are liable to face significant neoliberal challengers in 2022.

    Rashida Tlaib is the most vulnerable, her district is majority black and she's not.

    Omar has ethics trouble, and is probably an adulterer. A DLC type Somali on the Minneapolis City Council will challenge her at some point.

    AOC has effectively been neutered when her Chief of Staff was dismissed by the Dem leadership.

    Pressley is probably not going anywhere.

    Heh, I thought it was "w*gs" begin at Calais, not sure what it means to the British, I thought "w*g" was an Italian slur here.

    I'll admit to a heretical support of the civil law "inquisitorial" system, at least when it comes to family law. The adversarial system makes divorce much worse.

    From another point of heresy, "judicial activism" is a common law phenomenon. Particularly American, the Commonwealth's Supreme Courts are XX century inventions, which only gained powers over time.

    As a matter of civil matter, the better performance of ex-British colonies seems to indicate a superiority of common law in this arena.

    These people are gonna hurt somebody either way, we show no signs of controlling that problem. So who’s it going to be? I choose not-Americans. If they run out and they come back to preying on Americans, still better off than we were before. I said this was cruel but we really can’t afford to be sentimental right now.

    I think a lot of ancient military leaders would tell you that wanton rape and destruction don’t hinder combat effectiveness at all.

    RE rule of law, it’s clear that ship has sailed. We’re in another age of the rule of men. So again, who’s it going to be? Which men will rule? Never forget that rule of law is a means. It’s not an end.

    I agree. Encouraging uncontrolled mob violence is about the most stupid and evil thing that can be imagined. It always leads to lots of scores being settled and mass slaughter on both sides. And once such a bloodbath is unleashed it usually ends with the imposition of a very nasty authoritarian government. And then the reprisals begin.

    It's especially stupid when the people advocating the mob violence are a tiny handful of extreme right-wingers who are already widely regarded as dangerous nutjobs. The only possible result would be that everybody associated with the far right gets rounded up and sent to Guantanomo Bay.

    When someone makes such a suggestion I assume they're either insane or an agent provocateur.
