Bummer: Louisiana Isn’t Letting Illegal Aliens And Terrorists Get Married

(Before It's News)

Obviously, this is causing a massive case of the meanies according to the Washington Post’s Catherine Rampell

For an illustration of how cruel the country’s latest wave of nativism has grown, look to Louisiana.

Here, a little-noticed new state law has effectively made it illegal for thousands of refugees to get married.

It all started last year. Having lost the fight over gay marriage, the state’s religious right decided that the sacred institution of wedlock was once again under attack — this time, by devious immigrants. Undocumented workers and even terrorists had newly discovered they could exploit Louisiana’s marriage laws to gain citizenship, legislators claimed, leading to a supposed epidemic of “marriage fraud.”

The response? Make it more difficult for immigrants to get married, of course.

Hmm, sounds like a good idea, wiping away a loophole in the law that would allow those who shouldn’t be here in the first place, and those who have terrorist leanings, from gaining citizenship.

What Catherine whines about is that this law catches legal immigrants in a trap, because some do not have a birth certificate. OK, one. That’s right, one had an issue. That’s it. One. Who drove to Alabama to get married legally. But, could probably have asked for a waiver, based on his tenure and legal status in the country. And the fact that he probably wasn’t a threat for terrorism, being Buddhist.

But, you know, if even one is inconvenienced, well, we have to scrap all the laws, even if it makes it easy for illegals and terrorists to gain citizenship. Of course, if it’s one biological girl being inconvenienced because a gender confused boy wants in to her bathroom, shower, and changing room, well, the left has fours for her: “piss off, you hater.”

  • everyone is entitled to their own opinion I guess. But isn’t that kind of how most of this country was made in the first place? Oh, a poor slaves. Let’s free them since they suffer. Oh, poor ladies, they can’t vote. Oh poor blacks, jim crow laws are so wrong. and well, now looky here. Poor undocumented people. We don’t care about your families in the US. You risked your life to come here and better yourself. Surely you don’t deserve the right to marry the one you love because there are some trouble makers in your ranks. I doubt Louisiana will change their laws. They are very anti- anyone that isn’t us. lol. So don’t worry about the poor souls that had to drive to another state. I’m pretty sure they aren’t budging so soon there will be a line of people inconvenienced by this law that will have to make that drive and stream their weddings via facebook to their poor families that can’t attend the wedding so far away. And it’s funny because I grew up thinking Louisiana is family oriented. We all stick together down here, but love definitely does not conquer all. What would really fix this marriage fraud problem if you ask me, is the poor souls that get cheated out of their happily ever after, reporting them. Not enough people do it, and I know that from speaking with so many people I have met here in south Louisiana. I am all for marrying someone you love, but playing with the emotions and hearts of someone just to leave them cold and alone for a green card is unforgivable. I can’t help but feel like one state banning all undocumented people from marrying won’t really solve anything. If it was nationwide then yes. But really, it only seems as if Louisiana is butt hurt about not having their way, so now they want to lash out on “the illegals” that so many people have all these media fed misconceptions about. But, oh well. It seems that in the end love doesn’t conquer all. Instead it rejects and criminalizes anyone that doesn’t have their name in a computer or the right skin color. It is definitely not blind. It is definitely not patient. It is definitely not kind. It surely envies, it does boast with a vengeance. It is extremely proud, right ‘Merica? It dishonors others every chance it gets. It is not only self-seeking, but selfish, as it only acts based on what it can gain, not how can it help, it is very easily angered, as we get outraged by everything, and it keeps all record of wrongs even if they aren’t intentional, or if they are for a good cause. Love does delight in evil and rejoices with the twisting and bending of the truth. It always protects itself, always trusts no one, always hopes for the demise of others because well, they just look different you know. Deep down they are scary because I don’t know what they are saying in their native tongue, even if they are only saying, have a nice day, or thank you. and It will always ALWAYS persevere, because you know, that’s love. Louisiana is love. Just like this country is love. One nation under God, right? But, I believe we have let politics turn what God wants into what the government wants. And church and state are more united than ever, if this is indeed what Louisiana has in store for those that don’t have a document saying they deserve to be treated as a human too.
