Hina Shamsi wrote a piece, "Flying Home From Abroad, a Border Agent Stopped and Questioned Me About My Work for the ACLU."
Her purpose was to gin up anger against the duly elected president and his efforts to curtail terrorism.
Instead her piece raised two questions in my mind. 1. Why after 25 years of living in our country has she not become a citizen? 2. Why does the ACLU have a Pakistani as director of its "National Security Project"?
There is nothing illegal about her status as a legal alien or the ACLU hiring her. But both decisions reflect on her and her organization, which often acts as legal muscle for the Democratic Party.
Shamsi is a graduate of Mount Holyoke College and Northwestern University School of Law. One would think as an immigrant she would be appreciative of this nation's liberty and freedom.
Instead she has fought for unlawful enemy combatants at Gitmo Bay, seeking trials and the like for which no prisoner of war is entitled and certainly no unlawful enemy combatant is.
Her lack of citizenship after a quarter-century -- her decision -- is very telling. If she truly believed in the United States, she would stand up for the country and become a citizen. Instead she remains an alien -- a foreigner -- demanding we adhere to her interpretation of our laws and our Constitution.
To call her unAmerican is accurate. She is not an American, and yet the ACLU has her directing its "National Security Project."
That the ACLU would choose to outsource this job to her tells me that the purpose of its "National Security Project" is not to help secure the nation but rather, I suspect, to undermine our security.
In her piece, which is here, she called President Trump's actions a "Muslim ban" -- a factual error designed to mislead. An officer of the court -- even a foreign one -- is obligated to tell the truth in all communications,
The border patrol asked her about her employment! No one at the border asked that before. They should have. They should ask any foreigner entering the country. Documents get forged all the time. The border personnel were negligent in the past. I trust President Trump has them doing their jobs now.
"Trump the Establishment" is an account on how the Establishment used the media to stop the Trump Train in the general election by constantly badgering him on personal issues, often petty. But Trump prevailed based on his abilities as a CEO, and his stances on the real issues of the economy and national security, which I also delve into.
