This one is a hoot
(Breitbart) A federal complaint has been filed against the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Secretary Jeh Johnson for their “actions concern[ing] the entry and settlement of multitudinous foreign nationals into the United States.”
The DHS, and Secretary Johnson (in his official capacity) have been sued for the damage that has been caused to citizens because of expansive immigration policies and lax enforcement, and for not conducting an environmental analysis of the effect of their policies. The plaintiffs want transparency from the federal government and environmentally informed decision-making.
The nine plaintiffs urge that communities have been harmed and overwhelmed by school overcrowding, traffic congestion, water and air pollution, destruction of property and livestock, loss of green space, and interference with the peaceful enjoyment of private property. There were 14 affidavits attached to the complaint by those harmed by the federal government’s policies.
They should have included climate change, actually making it the primary objection. Would have created quite the conundrum for liberals, would it not?
Lead IRLI counsel, Julie Axelrod told Breitbart Texas, “The federal government has been ignoring our nation’s preeminent environmental law for the past 46 years. NEPA, which stated directly that endless population growth is not in the national interest, was supposed to prevent exactly what has happened— that the public is in the dark about the massive environmental impact of the policy choices of their government.”
Well, now that’s just a low blow, using the leftist’s own type of talking points to slam them on illegal immigration.
Anyhow, read the rest.
