Reckon it's just part of his Comprehensive (Illegal-)Immigration Reform Sell-Out™.
s he a senator or the country's ambassador to the Americas? A member of Qongress or the U.S. trade representative?
Why, if you're Juanita Amnesty-for-Lawbreakers MqMexiqaIIIno, you can be them all.
You looking for votes down there, Juanny? Need to increase your poll numbers among the Colombian people?
Negotiating deals in Mexico City for even greater volumes of People's Republic of China imports?
Well, before you start "discuss[ing] trade, security and energy issues" with foreign governments, El Señora Señior
Señátor Ambássador, in any way at all on "our" behalf, blow the dust off that yellowing copy of the U.S. Constitution which has been sitting so undisturbed on your office shelf these past 26 years — No, look again. It's probably still up there. Check behind your dog-eared copy of Marx's Manifesto. Likely got pushed back by it.... Still can't find it? Oh, well. Borrow a copy from your "my friend" Ted Qenne– Oh, that's right. He lost his a long time ago, too. Never mind. Just click here — and read for undoubtedly the first time its first Article's sixth section. No, not the clause that has the word "Treason" in it. (We'll get back to that later.) The next one. Clause Two, which says,
- No Senator or Representative shall, during the Time for which he was elected, be appointed to any civil Office under the Authority of the United States, which shall have been created, or the Emoluments whereof shall have been encreased during such time; and no Person holding any Office under the United States, shall be a Member of either House during his Continuance in Office.
Did you exempt this portion from your oath
to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States" and "bear true faith and allegiance to the same"?
What? You say it's not relevant because you haven't been appointed to an office under the United States authorized to "discuss trade, security and energy issues" with foreign governments? "There are no separation-of-powers issues here!"?
You're just being a maverick again, discussing these things with them on your own without any official authorization? Doing it only as a citizen?
Well, that's different.
Now you'll only be violating the Logan Act, which says,
- [Title 18, U.S. Code,] Section 953. Private correspondence with foreign governments
Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
Of course you could say that none of the trade, security, and energy issues you'll be discussing with those foreign governments are "in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States." Since when has our nation had any dispute with Mexico or
Columbia Colombia regarding such things? We're all just one big happy American Union, eh right sí?
Tell you what. Since you're going to be in Mexico City on July 3, anyway, why not stay an additional day down there?
Let us celebrate back here, while we still have it, the independence you'll be busy negotiating away. Without your presence on U.S. soil.
Then we might be able to ignore — at least temporarily — your latest knife sticking out of our backs.
It would make our observances of the Fourth so much more enjoyable.
(Better yet, tack on another ten days to your stay in Mexico. Then you'll be in the most proper surroundings for working on your July 14, address at the convention of the National Council of La
Oh, you're welcome.)
