Jesse isn't all wrong in this case.

If the U,S. District Court doesn't have jurisdiction to hear a law-suit against the Dept. of Homeland Security, Who does?

So, who would have standing to sue?

Can I sue the republican leaders for standing in the way of my representatives doing their constitutional duty?

If the USA provides "third world" infra-structure and services, don't you think that we should collect "third world" taxes, too?

If we would stop trying to be the "Super-Cop" for the whole planet, we could pay our bills, educate our kids, support our old people and provide health-care besides.
