ACLU Files Lawsuit Seeking the Release of Prisoners Held in Dallas Jail

The prisoners are endangered by the Chinese virus they say.

John Binder writing at Breitbart explains how ridiculous the lawsuit is because it could result in the release of one of the allegedly most prolific murderers of senior citizens in the US—Billy, the Kenyan Killer, Chemirmir.

I told you about another such lawsuit filed against the same jail by prisoners held at that jail, here last month.

See my extensive file on Chemirmir here.

From Breitbart (thanks to several readers for bringing the story to my attention):

Lawsuit Could Free Illegal Alien Accused of Murdering 22 Elderly Americans

An American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) lawsuit is seeking the release of inmates in the Dallas County, Texas Jail considered “vulnerable” to contracting the Chinese coronavirus — a suit that could result in the release of a high-profile accused illegal alien serial killer from Kenya.


Chemirmir with some of his alleged victims.

In criminal court, prosecutors say Chemirmir is responsible for at least 14 murders of elderly Americans in the Dallas area. In civil lawsuits, Chemirmir has been accused of an additional eight murders of elderly Americans. Prosecutors say Chemirmir would smother his victims to death and steal property off them.


Breitbart News exclusively reported that Chemirmir first arrived in the U.S. on a B-2 tourist visa in July 2003. Though Chemirmir was supposed to only temporarily be in the U.S., he overstayed his visa and became an illegal alien who was eligible for deportation.

Rather than being deported, Chemirmir was able to use a loophole in the nation’s legal immigration system, allowing him to obtain a green card after marrying an American citizen. In November 2007, Chemirmir was approved for a green card.


The ACLU, partially funded by billionaire George Soros, has filed a class-action lawsuit against Dallas County officials demanding the release of all inmates in the Dallas County Jail who are “over 50 and those who are most vulnerable to contracting the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19.”

The lawsuit is requesting that as many Dallas County Jail inmates are released as possible until the facility is in full compliance with six-feet social distancing guidelines.

And, help keep the case of the Kenyan Killer alive because the national mainstream media isn’t touching it!   Presumably they can’t ignore his trial, but an April 2021 trial date is a long way off.

Chinese Illegal Aliens Turned Back at US Border; ACLU Fights for Them in Court

Paul Bedard writing a few days ago at the Washington Examiner reported that the Trump Administration’s policy known as Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) has allowed the DHS to force foreign nationals claiming they want asylum to wait on the Mexican side of the border, but that won’t last if the ACLU gets its way.

And, so far, they are making legal headway in thwarting the President’s efforts to keep Americans safe.

From the Washington Examiner:

328 Chinese nationals caught entering US illegally

At least 328 Chinese nationals trying to enter the United States illegally since January have been intercepted by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials as part of heightened awareness on the borders to block the coronavirus from slipping into the nation.

Officials told Secrets Wednesday that since January, 328 Chinese were “apprehended” and sent back across the border or repatriated consistent with existing policy and procedure. Another three from South Korea, where the virus is also spreading, were also caught.

When I first learned that Chinese were the top asylum recipients after entering the US (mostly illegally) I was surprised. Maybe you will be too.


Some 227 foreign nationals from other nations who tried to enter through legal border points from Feb. 2 through March 3 have been turned away due to the travel restriction ordered by the president and implemented by the Department of Homeland Security, officials said.


Senior administration officials said that the president’s three-year focus on the border, the new wall, and the policy of keeping illegal immigrants in Mexico while awaiting permission to enter the U.S., have gone a long way to keep the virus away, especially at the southern border.

But acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf on Tuesday raised concerns about a court challenge to the Migrant Protection Protocols policy of keeping migrants in Mexico, where the coronavirus has also landed.

“MPP has an uncertain future. We know from experience that the journey to the U.S. border puts migrants in poor conditions — and they often arrive with no passports, medical histories, or travel manifests. The administration will continue to closely monitor the virus globally, as well as in our hemisphere, and will adjust our proactive measures as necessary,” he said.

Added a senior administration official:

“We have a unique public health threat posed by individuals arriving unlawfully at the border. Any halting of MPP would exacerbate that threat.”

Who cares says the ACLU!

[Court:] “the MPP is causing extreme and irreversible harm to plaintiffs” (to the Chinese trying to get into the US).

From NPR:

Court Blocks Trump’s ‘Remain In Mexico’ Policy Along Part Of The Border

A federal appeals court has decided to block the Trump administration’s “Remain in Mexico” plan in two states along the U.S. border, following back-and-forth rulings over the program.

In its order late Wednesday, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco said that next week the administration will have to stop making asylum-seekers wait in Mexico for the U.S. to process their claims, but that the court ban applies only to areas in its jurisdiction, Arizona and California.

The decision comes less than a week after the appeals court briefly blocked the program, then quickly suspended that order.

On Wednesday, the court said it remains “very clear” that a lower court was correct in ruling that the Trump administration program — technically called the Migrant Protection Protocols, or MPP — may violate the law. “It is equally clear,” the court added, “that the MPP is causing extreme and irreversible harm to plaintiffs,” many of whom are asylum-seekers themselves.

Read about the twists and turns of the case in the court system. Then see here what the ACLU says.

“If the administration had any respect for the law or any sense of decency, it would end this program immediately,” Judy Rabinovitz, special counsel in the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, which has challenged the program, said in a statement released after the court order.

“We will continue working to permanently end this illegal and inhumane policy.”

The Tahirih Justice Center, another nonprofit group fighting the policy, expressed frustration at the limited scope of the court’s injunction.

New Hampshire: ACLU Sues for Answers about Illegal Alien Somali Held in Detention

Somali deportation
The NYT story about the aborted flight is here:

The Somali man came across our southern border a couple of years ago and asked for asylum claiming he was escaping al-Shabaab (aren’t they all!) , but the government had already determined that he must be deported because he was on that aborted 2017 deportation flight.
See one of my reports here at RRW. I don’t think there was ever a full explanation of what went wrong with that flight to Somalia.
Now he is still in detention in New Hampshire and the ACLU wants answers and wants him released.

ACLU Jumping for Joy as Iowa Supreme Court says Medicaid Dollars can go to Transgender Surgery/Care

Advocates believe the decision is the first by a state’s highest court to hold that transgender people have the right to use public money for transition-related surgeries.

The federal government defines Medicaid as follows,

Medicaid provides health coverage to millions of Americans, including eligible low-income adults, children, pregnant women, elderly adults and people with disabilities. Medicaid is administered by states, according to federal requirements. The program is funded jointly by states and the federal government.

And, according to the feds last analysis 65.9 million (‘poor’) people are covered. That is over 20% of the entire US population!  And, if the ‘progressives’ at the ACLU have their way that number will rise.
I’ve been writing about Medicaid (and Medicare) fraud, and this is one more example of the expansion of these fraud-ridden programs as part of the Left’s agenda to move America toward a socialist form of government.  (Don’t miss Leo Hohmann’s call to arms in my previous post.)

Texas: ACLU Using Legal Intimidation Tactics to Stop Voter Roll Purge

As we reported here at the end of January, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton asserted that as many as 95,000 non-citizens are registered to vote in the state.
The ACLU is now attempting to stop any purging of the list by filing lawsuits against the Texas Secretary of State, the Director of Elections and county officials!
From the Houston Chronicle,

Several civil rights and voting advocacy groups sued Texas officials and five county elections administrators on Monday over an advisory urging counties to review the citizenship status of thousands of voters flagged as possible non-citizens.
The ACLU of Texas, along with the Texas Civil Rights Project, Demos and the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, filed the lawsuit against Texas Secretary of State David Whitley and Director of Elections Keith Ingram, alleging that their recommendations discriminate against naturalized citizens. Also named in the suit are the election administrators in Galveston, Blanco, Fayette, Caldwell, and Washington counties, who sent out notices threatening to cancel voter registrations based on the list. [This is the type of intimidation the ACLU relishes—going after local officials.—-ed]
In a Jan. 25 advisory, Whitley asked local elections offices to look into the citizenship of 95,000 people on the voter rolls. Since then, the list has been cut by nearly 20,000 names — registered voters who were identified as citizens.

This sounds very reasonable to me, but it sent the ACLU around the bend!

The secretary of state can’t remove voters from the rolls, but county elections officials can. Whitley has instead recommended that counties send notices to the people they flagged as possible non-citizens, giving them 30 days to prove they’re eligible to vote by presenting a birth certificate, passport or certificate of naturalization. If they don’t respond, their registrations will be canceled by the county voter registrar.
Whitley’s list drew from documents people submitted to the Department of Public Safety when they were applying for drivers licenses. Non-citizens, such as temporary residents, asylum seekers and refugees, can get a Texas drivers license but can’t register to vote unless they become U.S. citizens.
Whitley said the list includes 58,000 people who have cast ballots in Texas elections.

question markAs I have said on several previous occasions, if you are looking for something to do, get involved with your local board of elections and see how they are handling this issue of determining who is a citizen eligible to vote.  See if they are working to at least purge the dead people!
