REPORT: Federal judge rules that immigration law is unconstitutional
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by YAHOO.COM:
KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A federal judge in Kansas has ruled that a law making it a crime to “encourage” or “induce” immigrants to enter or live in the country illegally is unconstitutional.
KCUR-FM reports that U.S. District Judge Carlos Murguia issued his ruling from the bench Wednesday before throwing out the convictions of Jose Felipe Hernandez-Calvillo and Mauro Papalotzi. Prosecutors said the men, who themselves are in the country illegally, managed crews of workers who installed drywall for a Lawrence company.
The article goes on to state the following:
After they were convicted of conspiring with supervisors to violate the law, the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco ruled in a similar case that encouraging immigrants to be in the country illegally is protected speech under the First Amendment.
The report further stated:
The two men whose convictions Murguia threw out could still be deported, although the government has not initiated deportation proceedings against them. Bradshaw said his client is raising a son who was born in the U.S. and just graduated from high school.
Judge finds that “encouraging immigrants to be in the country illegally is protected speech under the First Amendment.” https://t.co/ljl1S8VeLx Unbelievable. (Fun fact: The judge is a brother of La Raza president Janet Murguia.)

This is just a farcical ruling. Two hundred years of sovereignty law down the drain. https://t.co/evJLYV6X9e
