Children born in the U.S. to illegal aliens, known as anchor babies, are automatically granted citizenship.
Now a new benefit may be developing for illegal-alien girls and women who are pregnant. The American Civil Liberties Union recently tricked the Department of Justice, arranging for taxpayers to fund an abortion for an illegal-alien teen.
More cases are in the pipeline that could create a “right” to taxpayer-paid abortion for illegal-alien girls and women.
WND reported the original case is being submitted to the U.S. Supreme Court because of the ACLU’s deception.
In that case, involving a 17-year-old pregnant illegal alien in Texas, court arguments were made at the district and appeals court levels.
When the appeals court said the abortion should proceed, ACLU lawyers told the DOJ they would arrange the procedure for the following day.
Instead, they summoned an abortionist to his business at 4:15 a.m. that very day to do the taxpayer-funded abortion.
The abortion was rushed, according to a new DOJ filing with the U.S. Supreme Court, because government attorneys were preparing to ask the high court to review the case after Democratic-appointed appellate judges effectively created a right to abortion for illegal aliens.
While the abortion on the illegal-alien teen already has been carried out, the precedent must be overturned, they argue.
The Washington Times reported Justice Department lawyers said they had been preparing to ask the Supreme Court to take up the case, “but the ACLU’s speedy abortion for the girl identified in court documents only as ‘J.D.’ short-circuited that.”
The brief reads: “The government planned to seek an emergency stay from this court before Ms. Doe could obtain an abortion. Ms. Doe’s appointment was changed so that instead of obtain counseling at 7:30 a.m. on October 25, she would undergo an abortion at 4:15 a.m. that morning, just hours before the government planned to file its stay application.”
Now the Washington Times is reporting a surge in pregnant illegal-alien girls.
“At least 420 pregnant Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) have been caught and put into government care over the last year, and 43 pregnant illegal immigrant girls were still in custody of the Health and Human Services Department as of Oct. 17, Jonathan White, the department’s director for children’s programs, said in court documents,” the report said.
“Of the 420 girls seen in fiscal year 2017, 18 requested abortions and 11 had them. Another five rescinded their request for an abortion, and two were turned over to sponsors in the U.S. before a final decision was made, Mr. White said, meaning they were outside of government custody.”
The Trump administration is in battle with the ACLU over the issue.
In a column for the Examiner, Margot Cleveland noted the government contends the Texas teen’s lawyers should be forced to prove why disciplinary action should not be taken against them, either by the court or the state bars to which they belong “for what appear to be material misrepresentations and omissions to government counsel designed to thwart this court’s review.”
The government filing said the government had asked to be kept informed of the timing of the abortion procedure, and “one of the respondent’s counsel agreed.”
It was on Oct. 25 that the DOJ was planning to file an appeal with the Supreme Court.
But even as paperwork was being prepared, the ACLU announced “Jane Doe” had had an abortion.
The abortion had been authorized by six Democratic-appointed judges on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, who were blasted by a variety of organizations for creating a new “right” to abortion at taxpayer expense even for those who have broken U.S. laws to enter the country.
Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, said, “We are deeply saddened to learn that Jane Doe’s child has been aborted.
“Our thoughts are foremost with the young girl, who has now been saddled with the death of her child before she has even reached her 18th birthday – a terrible burden for anyone to carry, much less at such a tender age and so far from home. We ask that the pro-life community and all compassionate Americans keep her and her child in their prayers.”
She continued: “We unequivocally reject abortion advocates’ narrative that justice has been done in this case. Instead the extreme agenda of the abortion lobby and the ACLU has claimed two victims and made a cruel mockery of the ‘American dream.’ We will continue to oppose all efforts to impose a so-called constitutional right to abortion and turn the United States into a sanctuary nation for abortion.”
