The courthouse might even be the new capital of the newly aquired state of Mexico after it's annexed due to its failed state status.

"Armendariz Sr. took part in a 1954 U.S. Supreme Court case, Hernandez versus the State of Texas, that established Hispanics as a distinct class entitled to equal protection under the U.S. Constitution's 14th Amendment."
The above statement needs clarification. The 14th Amendment has not changed since it became law in the 19th century. It does not name any ethnic group as a "distinct class;" it only sates that "no person" shall be shall be deprived of their equal rights under the law."
Nowhere does it distinguish Hispanics as a special or distinct class.
All the Supreme Court decision did was (at least temporarily) legalize illegal aliens as far as their right to attend school tuition-free, like resident aliens and U.S. citizens in Texas, and now the other states under the Supremacy Clause giving the decision full force and effect to all states (Article 6, part 2 of the U.S. Constitution).
Eventually, the Amendment must be re-worded to not give citizenship to the offspring of illegal aliens, called "anchor babies," and other rights, such as a free education to illegal aliens. American taxpayers cannot afford to educate every third world trespasser who slips passed the totally incompetent Border Patrol.
These interpretations of the Supreme Cort do not amend the Constitution as written, but only interpret it. The flaw is in the original way the Amendment was worded. That must change in order to close the door on abuses in the matter of interpretation of the law, which MALDEF and other subversive groups are constantly exploiting it; and their next goal is to give illegal aliens the right to vote and hold Government jobs.
If our Government had obeyed the higher law in the Constitution, Article IV, Part 4, the first administration that failed to protect our borders from foreign invasion would have been impeached and treated as traitors. That trend began in 1961 when the nation came under the hegemony of the first Catholic President, and it has now progressed to where the word "deportation" in bureaucratic "interpretations" of the law is loosely applied only to illegal aliens who have been convicted of felonies.
Scroll down to the "text" of the Constitution under:

Too bad Jr. does not have the integrity of Sr.

Since you obviously have so much time on your hands and enjoy throwing around the phrase "illegal aliens," I invite you to look up your own family tree. I am willing to bet that you/your ancestors are/were not native to this land. Hence, you, too, are an "alien" to this country settled by men who definitely had more understanding and compassion than you.
