Obama-Appointed Judge Rules that U.S. Border Fence is Racist


You know liberals are really grasping at straws when they pull this crap. An Obama-appointed judge claims that the border fence has a “disparate impact” on “minority communities.”

Since when are illegal immigrants residing in foreign countries an American “community,” let alone an oppressed community?

A Homeland Security initiative to put fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border could discriminate against minorities, according to an Obama-appointed federal judge who’s ruled that the congressionally-approved project may have a “disparate impact on lower-income minority communities.”
This of course means that protecting the porous–and increasingly violent–southern border is politically incorrect. At least that’s what the public college professor at the center of the case is working to prove and this month she got help from a sympathetic federal judge. Denise Gilman, a clinical professor at the taxpayer-funded University of Texas-Austin, is researching the “human rights impact” of erecting a barrier to protect the U.S. from terrorists, illegal immigrants, drug traffickers and other serious threats.

This is madness. I’m calling it right now: within five years, there will be some sort of affirmative-action scheme for border jumpers.
