Treason Lobby Suffers Defeat As Lawsuit Against “Racial Profiling” Goes Down in Flames

Racial profiling” is legal and the purpose of the government is to enforce the law, including immigration laws. But in Occupied America, a powerful Open Borders Lobby dedicated to replacing the American people regards these obvious truths as controversial and even morally despicable. Luckily, a recent lawsuit designed to sabotage immigration law enforcement has failed. However, the facts surrounding the lawsuit show just how committed agribusinesses are to breaking to the law.

Two Cultural Marxist front groups for illegal aliens, the Farm Labor Organizing Committee (FLOC) and the Immigrant Worker Project, alleged Border Patrol Agents (BPA) were "racially profiling” Hispanics. A judge found no evidence of this allegation.

A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit accusing US border patrol agents who watch over Ohio near the Canadian border of routinely engaging in racial profiling to round up Hispanics.

The judge in Toledo ruled this week that there is no evidence the border patrol along Lake Erie had policies encouraging racial profiling.

US district court judge Jack Zouhary said race did not play a role in the eight encounters with agents cited in the lawsuit.

The Treason Lobby lawsuit was premised upon the claim that racial profiling was illegal, which it is not. Even Eric Holder has admitted it in the past.( “Although the use of that information may not be unconstitutional, broad targeting of discrete groups always raises serious fairness concerns.”  DOJ Guidance to law enforcement, PDF, December 8, 2014]) But while the judge in this case seemed to know that, the Department of Justice attorney defending the Border Patrol apparently didn’t:
“Racial profiling has no place in law enforcement,” defense attorney William Silvis said. He said the evidence would not show border patrol agents actively targeted any specific group, and they were within their legal rights for all searches and apprehensions.

It seems they were able to rebut the charges racial profiling actually took place, but that’s critical ground to concede.

But there was confirmation that "wet" and "wetback" are not officially considered by the U.S. government to be racist terms:

[The defense attorney] denied the term “wet” or “wets” was related to race and said the term referred to a legal status and not a group of people of any ethnicity.
The term generally refers to Mexican nationals, regardless of race, because when the term came into use, the overwhelming majority of illegals were Mexicans.

Concepts of race and ethnicity are often lumped together. But there is no “Hispanic” race.  That term comes from the Census Bureau, which admits that there is no legal or scientific basis for the definition, even if there are underlying scientific bases for race:

The data on race were derived from answers to the question on race that was asked of individuals in the United States. The Census Bureau collects racial data in accordance with guidelines provided by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and these data are based on self-identification.

The racial categories included in the census questionnaire generally reflect a social definition of race recognized in this country and not an attempt to define race biologically, anthropologically, or genetically. In addition, it is recognized that the categories of the race item include racial and national origin or sociocultural groups. People may choose to report more than one race to indicate their racial mixture, such as “American Indian” and “White.” People who identify their origin as Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish may be of any race. "About Race" Page, July 8, 2013

Where does this legal authorization for race come from anyway? The legal authorization by the Census Bureau for race definitions refers to the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), which in turn refers to Title 42 United States Code (USC) Section 2000e-16. That deals with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and federal employment discrimination claims. It’s entirely a bureaucratic definition. And the official Federal definitions of “race” do not include Latino, Hispanic, or Spanish.

OPM refers to Hispanic or Latino as: "Cuban, Mexican, Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin." That's not even an ethnicity—just culture or origin, which includes everyone from Ted Cruz to a pre-Spanish colonization indigino.

We know that there can be White Hispanics and Black Hispanics.  Lots of blacks in Panama are native Spanish-speakers, and generally consider themselves to be Hispanic more than black, at least those I’ve known. But Afro-Nicaraguans are just the opposite. They consider themselves black and not Hispanic, despite being born and raised in Central America for generations.

But generally speaking, Hispanics are usually mestizos, those of a mixed indigenous and white origin. According to the Department of Homeland Security, Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala and Ecuador contribute 8.5 million of the estimated 11.5 million illegal alien population in this country, which is about 74%. The plaintiffs stated in their court complaint that the overwhelming majority of stops by the Border Patrol in Ohio were of Hispanics. But how could it be otherwise if the Border Patrol is supposed to search for illegal immigrants?

Indeed, the head of the Farm Labor Organizing Committee essentially admitted the problem isn’t that the Border Patrol is racially profiling, it’s that the USBP is enforcing the law:

Baldemar Velasquez, FLOC president, addressed the crowd shortly before returning to the courtroom to testify.

Inside the courtroom, Mr. Velasquez testified that the presence of border patrol, colloquially referred to as “immigration,” or “la migra,” has a “chilling effect” on agricultural businesses in Northwest Ohio. Since the station opened in 2009, profiling has driving out laborers who have been stopped or questioned by border patrol about their immigration status, he said. He cited one produce operation that moved to South Carolina outside the patrol boundaries of border patrol.

“That’s the boogeyman in our community,” Mr. Velasquez said. “Those guys in the green uniforms. The border patrol.”

[Plaintiffs Say U.S. Agents Used Racist Terms, by Lauren Lindstrom, Toledo Blade, June 17, 2015]

But what is the “community?” It seems obvious the community referred to isn’t “Hispanics” but illegals. And this is a damning admission about the reliance of the Slave Power on a cheap, replaceable, and subservient workforce. Isn’t this guy supposed to be trying to make life better for workers?

What we see is corporate power and illegal immigrants united against enforcing American immigration laws. Patriotic Border Patrol Agents are referred to as a "boogeymen."  The Slave Power and illegals both have the same agenda, the election of a new people and the replacement of the historic American nation.

And the reason Donald Trump has materialized is that the historic American nation thinks he—and no longer the GOP Establishment—can be their champion.
