Governor Cuomo Announces to the World He is a Nitwit!

http://insider.foxnews.com/2017/06/07/donald-trump-illegal-immigration-andrew-cuomo-deport-me-new-york

New York City Governor Andrew Cuomo said recently (not sure of date of speech, article published 07 June 2017) President Trump should start with him in the process of deporting immigrants. In doing so, Governor Cuomo demonstrates his inability to speak intelligently. Several factual gaffes appear in this statement:

1. The President of the United States cannot deport anyone. Only an immigration judge, in an immigration court and proceedings has the authority to deport anyone. Nor does the President of the United States have authority to direct such a court to deport any specific individual.

2. Governor Cuomo was born in New York City to parents presumably citizens of the United States. He was not born in any of the ‘exception’ areas – the Italian Consulate, for instance – and is therefore a citizen of the United States. A citizen of the United States – by law – cannot be deported. Only non-citizens can be deported.

3. The current President of the United States has made no statements about a blanket deportation of ‘immigrants’. He has spoken of deportation of those persons, not U. S. citizens, in the territory of the United States AND engaged in the planning or commission of illegal, felonious acts; or those in the U. S. without legal authority (commonly called ‘illegal aliens’). One notes if Governor Cuomo has either planned or committed illegal felonious acts, and is under law liable as an ‘abettor’ or participant in such acts, he may be arrested, tried and convicted and sentenced to penal servitude or other punishment as prescribed by law and directed by competent court. But Governor Cuomo cannot be deported for such action.

All of the above should be known to Governor Cuomo. I say again, ‘…should be aware…’. One notes Governor Cuomo is an attorney and has practiced law at least in the State of New York. Attorneys in general should be aware of these provisions of Federal Law.

From all this, two alternatives present themselves. One is Governor Cuomo is woefully ignorant of the law. Which strikes me as a bit unlikely. The other alternative is Governor Cuomo is so intent in his hatred for President Trump, et al, the Governor has decided to utter mis-truths in order to cast aspersions on the President.

I am always doubtful of those who cannot find a legitimate argument for criticism and instead utter mis-truths. Nor does this generate any confidence or sympathy for Governor Cuomo or his purpose.

Really Stupid Things Said by Attornies, Who Should Know Better

First, one might want to read the original article to get the background. It is short, maybe three minutes to read.

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2013/05/09/former-fox-news-employee-pleads-guilty-in-mole-case/

May I direct the reader’s attention to paragraphs six and seven, which read thusly:

Muto’s attorney, Florian Miedel, said Muto should not have been treated like a criminal, despite admitting he stole material from his employer.

“Making him accept a criminal conviction is unfortunate for conduct that is fairly commonplace in the industry,” Miedel said.

Mr. Muto committed acts which are in violation of the criminal code, and are morally repugnant – treachery against an employer or other person who trusts the betrayer. Why should he not be “treated like a criminal”? Mr. Muto did ‘criminal actions’, isn’t that the definition of a criminal? To plead our society should not treat criminals like criminals is both idiotic and counter productive.

However, let’s address Mr. Meidel’s thinking for a moment. Mr. Meidel seems to think Mr. Muto’s conduct should be allowed, because such deeds of treachery are “… fairly commonplace in the industry”. In other words, ‘every one does it!”

Mr. Meidel; robbing banks by force and threatening people in the process is “… fairly commonplace in the [bank robbing] industry”. Should we as a society therefore not treat bank robbers like criminals? Does the same apply to rapists? After all, rapists do what is ‘commonplace’ in the rape industry.

Here’s another thought for Mr. Meidel; is that the best defense one can muster for an accused? Not even, “My client was under a great deal of stress and wasn’t thinking clearly at the time” or “My client is very ashamed and repentant of his despicable actions”; simply “Everybody does it”. That’s the defense? My mind boggles and my stomach lurches.

Hopefully, this event will be remembered when Mr. Muto attempts employment again. “Oh, yes; you’re the one who steals information and sells it to line his pockets. Interesting resume, sir.”

The same applies to Mr. Meidel. “I’m in serious trouble and looking for an attorney to get me off. Oh, yes; you’re the ‘everybody does it’ defense guy. Thanks anyway.”

This is a free market society. People are free to spend their money as they see fit. (Except for taxes, of course.) Perhaps if more people pay attention to whom they hire, and demand a certain level of both integrity and competence, we’d be better off as a society.

If we as a society start forgiving crime as ‘too popular to prosecute or convict’, we’re done as a society and a nation. We’re already much to close to that status as it is.
