Turbans … the ACLU’s fight against us

 SO, the ACLU is more upset about Border Agents removing turbans from illegal migrants than they are about illegal migrants.

Border Patrol agents in Arizona have confiscated the turbans of dozens of Sikh men seeking asylum in the United States, violating their civil rights and government policies, the ACLU says in a letter calling for an end to the practice.

“Representatives of the American Civil Liberties Union decried what they said were unlawful and “serious religious-freedom violations” and asked US Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Chris Magnus to investigate.

The letter, sent August 1 and first reported by The Intercept, alleges that 64 such instances have been reported in the Border Patrol’s Yuma sector so far this year — mostly in the past two months — by Sikh asylum seekers who were released from custody and sought help at a welcome center in Phoenix.

“This is reprehensible,” the ACLU of Arizona said in a tweet Wednesday. “The faith and dignity of Sikh migrants at the border must be respected.”

How about the DIGNITY of an America which should be FAR more concerned that people like these “asylum seekers,” (as CNN refers to them!!),  are here totally illegally until they are deemed legitimately fleeing religious persecution.  And, even then, WHY US?   ALL the way to America for Sikhs from the  Middle East?

How many dollars will the ACLU get for these illegals (and for themselves) when they bring this to court?    Our tax dollars spent because agents removed turbans from Sikhs?

I wonder if a gun might be snuck into a Sikh’s turban? Sikhs are known for being peaceful, but we also know not all illegals coming across are correctly identifying themselves.. And, of course, my article gave no defense by the Border Agents for this action.

“serious religious-freedom violations”  ??    I’d have thought the ACLU might care about the very serious violation of illegals sneaking into America, but……..of course not.

What do you think we should do?

    Come come now. We know the possibility of an illegal Sikh sneaking in a weapon or illegal drugs under his party hat in no way rises to the threat of an old Irish nun ( yeah it’s racist I know) in a wheelchair sneaking in weapons of mass destruction in her shoes or brazier while making her way onto an airplane. Priorities.

    The border enforcement people are correct to “remove” turbans and their polite response to the ACLU should explain about public safety and health. Of course, you are correct about “smuggling things” inside these turbans (firearms, explosives, and illicit materials), but also head lice, and finally, wearing a turban in hot and humid conditions can produce heat exhaustion and stroke. Once again, as you say, the ACLU has its head up its butt.

    @ Ron … hope you’re feeling better soon, shipmate.

    Let’s give credit where credit is due. While these guys may bring in head lice and other assorted biologics under their religious head coverings athletes foot isn’t among them since their women wash their mens feet after a hard day of pumping gas or Uber driving.

    Having convinced myself that I’ve had a bout with some variant of the gleep, I decided to do a li’l research to see how to conduct myself in its wake.

    Basically all the articles say that if you’re into your 70s or beyond and have ANY other health problems, such as COPD, Asthma, chronic bronchitis, coronary artery disease, risk for stroke, arthritis, and on and on and on – you’re screwed.

    Well, screw that.

    All seem to agree that severity and effects of the disease vary widely from person to person, but none seem to agree on any OTC help, such as ivermectin, quinine, HCQ, and so on.

    Looks to me as if I’m in that fairly large category which will experience post-attack malaise and lingering fatigue . . . which are quite common complaints for just about any flu bug.

    Some seem to get over it all in a matter of a week or so and have no lasting effects, but many will go thru a 2-week to as long as 12-week episode of feeling drained, rinsed out, exhausted, tired, listless, lethargic, and so on – kinda like how I felt yesterday and again today.

    The advice is generic and basically what Gramma used to say – plenty of fruit juice, tea, rest, sleep, and don’t overdo stuff . . . like tryin to mow the entire front and back lawns in one day when it’s in the 90s out there with 4000% humidity.

    And chicken soup, and ice cream, and cider, and even a glass of wine “for thy stomach’s sake” as it says in Leviticus. Salt-water gargles if sore throat pops up or persists, and stay outta drafts . . .and basically stay away from naked apes.

    Seems that Tylenol and/or aspirin should be used sparingly for the characteristic headaches associated with long-term gleep after-effects. And NEVER ibuprofen, especially in cases like mine with existing kidney and liver damage.

    So . . . that’s what I’m gonna do. Take it easy, plan jobs for early mornin temperatures and short duration, chicken soup, a coupla fingers of rum now and then, and lotsa fluids. Occasionally a nice glass of Jameson’s.

    If I’m lucky, I’ll be over this LONG before Labor Day. And my greatest hope is that it’ll all have been worth it ‘cuz I’ll have the natural immunity without the poison injections. And if I don’t survive it, what difference does it make anyhow?

    Appreciate the advice I’ve been gettin from people about various meds and tricks and caveats. I’d try mectin if I knew where to get it, but I’m not particularly keen on paxlovid. Wife has a bottle of it and isn’t using it, but I’ve heard mixed reviews on it.

    Made me some brownies this mornin, so it’s time for a 2nd cuppa and a square or two. Then off to the commissary to stock up on juices ‘n’ stuff.

    @ Bunks —

    Yeah, that was true back when we lived in rational America. Now, everyone gets a pass. Who could imagine that someone who finished last in his law class could ever become president? I’m telling you, we’ve taken affirmative action far past stupid.

    BOCOPRO: you say “Basically all the articles say that if you’re into your 70s or beyond and have ANY other health problems, such as COPD, Asthma, chronic bronchitis, coronary artery disease, risk for stroke, arthritis, and on and on and on – you’re screwed.”
    Not all….that’s why I wish you would call your doctor………

    MUSTANG “ACLU has its head up its butt.” again and again and again………….and CNN LOVES it and reports on it…..

    As BUNKERVILLE reminds; doesn’t “ILLEGAL” matter to ANYONE? Maybe only over the 1/6 goings on. Not foreigners who are going to be living off us all the rest of their lives now that they busted in illegally and are calling the shots to US, thanks to the ACLU.

    What REALLY CRACKS ME UP is our ‘reporting’ ignoring/avoiding the ILLEGALITY of all of this and focusing like laser beams on inconsequential stories that sound “So kind, so righteous”

    I keep wondering if the ACLU members have any children who might do better in an America which still has border laws, whose hospitals are filled only with legal Americas, and whose schools will not be totally destroyed by thousands of children who don’t speak English and don’t want to be there…………….and then there’s “Where do they LIVE”? And are WE supporting THEM? you betcha. …ACLU: BRILLIANT idiots.

    Everyone has covered the obvious so well. I’d like to back up a few steps. Sikhs live where? Predominantly India. Last I checked, that is a LONG swim. There’s a bigger question here than turbans. To which I’d add: Is Mexico benefitting from a form of eco-tourism in reverse here?

    Next time a football coach wants to pray after the game on the field, I’ll expect to see the ACLU come running to support his “faith and religious tradition.” Ah, they’re off the hook. The Supremes just decided that one. I’m sure plenty of opportunities will present themselves for the ACLU to demonstrate their consideration for America’s faith traditions.

    BAYSIDER…good point about the football coach praying………

    AND, you bring up something I’ve brought up here several times to no response though “eco-tourism’ isn’t my point:
    SO SO SO many illegals are coming in…some say from 150 countries….nobody rich, just ‘average shlubs’ who scream “ASYLUM” but mostly just want to leave where they are because they weren’t prospering and Biden’s invited them all here to life off of us.

    HOW DO THEY AFFORD THE FLIGHT? Nobody from India, or Yemen, or Africa, or anywhere else is SWIMMING here………….
    Latin Americans come here, supposedly poor…and somebody’s brought them up here on planes or buses, and they all have cell phones which are being charged (HOW? en route? charging stations like for EVS?!! ) and paid for.

    SO MANY QUESTIONS………..so very many UNANSWERED QUESTIONS. Wait, let me just say this, too…UNASKED QUESTIONS.

    Remember, too, we hear “Families” are coming (Germans hear this too of their illegals) and GUESS WHAT! They’re all YOUNG MEN, not children as Psaki’d lied about (“flying to cities in America to be reunited with their families”) NO NO NO……the areas these people boarded planes were told to hang black plastic around them so reporters (FOX, nobody else cares to cover it) can’t see them, but we DID see them, and THEY ARE YOUNG MEN…VERY few women and fewer children.

    LIES LIES LIES LIES F’in LIES.

    “WHAT DO YOU THINK WE SHOULD DO?” Are we forgetting the main issue here?
    THEY’RE ILLEGALS. ILLEGALS. ILLEGALS.
    What I think we should do is enforce the law……no exceptions….but we aren’t.

    Cute joke, Z. Even someone that loves talking about themselves is silenced!

    MAL…yes, ILLEGAL doesn’t seem to matter to the Left ……No, we aren’t enforcing it…on the border or in our cities……….illegal means DEMOCRAT VOTER, apparently…and they’re FOR It.

    And if you even SAY the word ILLEGAL instead of MIGRANT or DISPLACED PERSON, etc., you’re immediately called XENOPHOBE.

    What the Right has to do is find a comeback name for THOSE WHO LOVE ILLEGALITY…………….
    SO far, I can only think of DEMOCRAT//
