#1 IMO iff this suit does proceed, + espec iff the Illegals win, THE VALIDITY OF THE ENTIRE US CONSTITUTION WILL BE IN QUESTION.
That sound you will be hearing will be the Commies + Socialists + aligned celebrating.

#2 I want to sue the Senate AND the House -- for misfeasance, malfeasance and dumbfeasance. Can we make it a class action suit?

#4 No doubt it was easy to find a lawyer to bring the case, but I'm interested to hear how non-citizens even have standing to sue in the matter.
Be careful what you wish for, kiddies. Ever hear of 'tyranny of the majority'? An example would be a simple majority voting to kick all the illegals out of the country. Government needs a little inertia to keep it from veering off into the weeds.

#5 Each house makes its own rules. The judiciary would [not that the concept has ever stopped it before] be violating the separations of powers.
Article I, Section 5
Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behaviour, and, with the Concurrence of two thirds, expel a Member.

#7 How do criminal aliens have standing?

#8 I've always been perplexed as to how illegals do not lose every single bit of property and money they have when they are found. Is not all of it "goods gained during the commission of a crime"?
Let states and local governments confiscate everything that an illegal cannot prove they brought with them and they will clear themselves out pretty fast.
#9 2 things: Art 1 Sec 5 kills this in its cradle. And how the f**k do illegals have ANY standing to sue?

#10 One of the four democrat house members is our olde buddy Rep. Henry C. "Hank" Johnson Jr. Remember him? Joe M does. Hank was worried about tipping over Guam with overpopulation. After the 4 dem senators, we have an illegal alien as a plaintiff.
They all are doing O's dirty work. Hey, it's worth a try. But it is more than that. They are using publicity to pressure the senate. Any tool in the kit will be used to force the agenda. O needs votes, and illegals are a righteous sized pool.
This is a direct attack on our Constitution and our Republic.

#12 There is no piece of the constitution the left won't try to get rid of to advance their agenda.

#13 I think when Obastard took the oath of office he said the words "uphold and defend" but was thinking "undermine and subvert".
