What does a person do about a President or government agency head who knowingly and willfully violates a person’s civil/constitutional rights?
Clearly United States Codes Annotated Title 18, Section 242, Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law and it’s companion, Section 241, Conspiracy to Violate Rights is a remedy for a person acting under color of law who violates a person’s rights.
Persons acting under color of law include elected officials, unelected officials, agency heads, nursing home administrators, including police officers, who actually hold an unelected office; any person who is operating under local, county, state or federal rules, regulations, guidelines.
Whether these people know it or not, they owe a statutory duty to ALL PERSONS in their district or pool to uphold their constitutional rights.
Whether these people acting under color of law know it or not, if they fail their duty to uphold the constitutional rights of citizens in their district or pool, they are legally liable to the persons whose rights they violated.
The great thing about America is our system provides for a legal remedy to such constitutional crimes against persons.
It’s actually a beautiful thing for the smallest amongst us in terms of societal stature to be able to institute a legal action in pursuit of justice from which the malicious
defendant flees or stands in total ignorance and defiance of the individual’s constitutional rights, privileges and immunities provided by our U.S. Constitution.
Conversely, it’s sad our elected representatives on both sides have failed to engage the federal legal process available in a fight to protect their constituents’ constitutional rights.
Don’t feel bad, because even experienced Congresspersons DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO ABOUT rogue officials acting under color of law, such as state legislators, U.S. Congresspersons and even President Trump.
There is a cure for persons acting under color of law who violate persons’ constitutional rights: it’s called U.S.C. Title 18, Section 242: Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law.
This is THE FEDERAL CRIMINAL LAW which proscribes persons acting under color of law from violating persons’ constitutional rights. The President is NOT, NOT, NOT immune from being charged with a violation(s) of this sorely underused federal criminal code.
U.S. Congresspersons enjoy the legal standing to bring a federal action against ANY PERSON ACTING UNDER COLOR OF LAW who violates a person’s civil constitutional rights, including the President of the United States.
In Texas, GEO operates detention centers for Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Karnes City, Laredo, Pearsall and Conroe.
Culberson is facing a tough re-election race against Democrat Lizzie Fletcher. The race has been rated a ‘toss up’ by nonpartisan analyst Cook Political Report.
Culberson received the most funding from GEO out of Texas members of Congress, but GEO is also the top donor this cycle for U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Laredo, who received $32,400, and Round Rock Republican Rep. John Carter, who received $31,600. More >>>
Both Culberson and Cuellar serve on the House Appropriations Homeland Security Subcommittee, which funds private immigration detention centers. Culberson is also the chairman of and Carter serves on the House Appropriations subcommittee on commerce, justice and science, which oversees funding for private prisons.
Has President Trump committed actual prosecutable offenses? Yes, he has. President Trump, acting under color of law, categorically violated persons’ constitutional rights.
Which persons’ constitutional rights?
We can start with all the immigrants whose constitutional rights were maliciously violated by the President, rogue U.S. Border Patrol supervisors and agents and his White Nationalist kingpin, voodoo child Stephen Miller.
A President can be prosecuted while in office for federal crimes committed while in office. In this instance, there is no grey area; not only did President Trump knowingly and willingly violate immigrants’ constitutional rights, this group of criminal thugs committed these violations AS MALICIOUSLY AS POSSIBLE. Such grave intent matters when it comes to applying the federal criminal statute, U.S.C. TITLE 18, SEC. 242. Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law; said law penalizes serious violators up to life in prison, depending upon the severity of the offense.
President Trump and Stephen Miller have both made public statements regarding their malicious nature towards immigrants: Trump said the purpose of his admin’s new immigration rules is to produce an environment and outcome so sever and extreme as to deter any immigrant from coming to the U.S. Any reasonable person would agree such an attitude and policy is not only extreme and full of malcontent but historically incongruent with U.S. policy. The only congruence between the Obama administration and the Trump administration re: immigration policy and practice is BOTH ADMINS KEPT KIDS IN CAGES AND BOTH SEPARATED PARENT OR PARENTS FROM THE FAMILY TO THE EXTENT BOTH ADMINS WERE ORDERED BY FEDERAL JUDGES to release the children from the cages.
Treason does not apply to ANY PERSON in the United States because treason is a crime only possible during a period of Congressional Declaration of War.
Instead of impeaching Trump, the House should have sued Trump in U.S. District court and asked the court to make a ruling on whether or not President Trump violated U.S.C. Title 18, Sec. 242 and 241.
If the federal judge rules that Trump did violate said federal criminal statute then the House could have requested the judge to forward his ruling to a federal grand jury for criminal prosecution.
