Does Diversity Unite Us? Part III
When writing, albeit a report for educational purposes, a piece of technical information, writing a manual, or any other journaling the writer of such instance must be aware of the responsibilities and subsequent challenges that arise from one’s own writing.
There is no conceivable way that I am able to make my points [with examples] than to plan accordingly as all responsible writer’s do, or at least those who claim to be good with their subjects.
Moving on to a gentle juxtaposition let’s come to the same criteria and preparation when it comes to our Congressional members. Have you ever imagined, or experienced, or otherwise seen such work completed by our Congressional officials?
As for me, and this is with all the responsibility on me – but have you ever seen such poor operational management as that as displayed by Congress? Just the last time I wrote anything, showed me just how important it is to plan, rewrite, revise, rewrite, and with a little hope and Divine intervention those who sit in Congress may, yet not probably, got it right.
When studying the US Constitution – and then parlaying that knowledge with what has been added and when it was added, gawd! This stuff is unfathomable. I mean to say in common language is I wonder if anyone who constructs this stuff even considers the people who made be needing it in ten or more years? Prior to me ever going into that realm, I will stop short of The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 that was instantly written by a Senator Edward Kennedy D-MA along with I believe it was the upstart (who could be so stupid, otherwise!) Senator John “War Hero” McCain R-AZ.
After Kennedy’s assassination that November, Congress began debating and would eventually pass the Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965, co-sponsored by Representative Emanuel Celler of New York and Senator Philip Hart of Michigan and heavily supported by the late president’s brother, Senator Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts. During Congressional debates, a number of experts testified that little would effectively change under the reformed legislation, and it was seen more as a matter of principle to have a more open policy. Indeed, on signing the act into law in October 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson stated that the act “is not a revolutionary bill. It does not affect the lives of millions…. It will not reshape the structure of our daily lives or add importantly to either our wealth or our power.”
Federal District Judge in Southern California has discovered a substantive due process right guaranteeing the right to “family integrity” lurking in the Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment and has ordered all children reunited with their illegal immigrant parents. Obviously, the judge expects the parents to be released from incarceration to join their children, but the Trump administration seems determined to keep parents and children together in detention centers until legal proceedings determine their fate.
If I may, how are we told that a “mysterious” due process right guaranteeing the right to “family integrity.” Would it be unreasonable for a citizen to ask, “Whose ‘family integrity’ has been infringed upon here? This is precisely what I mean a simple question asked. Was this due process right actually written for those families who were here or was it written for displaced children? Putting an end to this little clause, yet very conveniently found, needs to be checked.
Just one last exponential comment. Does the American Congress write and therefore pass laws that are as excessively poor as this Immigration Legislation? Secondly, please re-read Part I of this series and please make a determination as to whether you think President Trump’s “animus” was animus indeed or is a guy allowed to say what he wants to say?
