As President Trump declared, “You’re gonna win so much you might get tired of winning!”
Well, the president gets another win. And this one will surely trigger Leftists.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time the Supreme Court had to uphold Trump’s Presidential powers.
According to Yahoo News,
The Supreme Court on Tuesday endorsed the U.S. government’s authority to detain immigrants awaiting deportation anytime – potentially even years – after they have completed prison terms for criminal convictions, handing President Donald Trump a victory as he pursues hardline immigration policies.
The court ruled 5-4 along ideological lines, with its conservative justices in the majority and its liberal justices dissenting, that federal authorities could pick up such immigrants and place them into indefinite detention anytime, not just immediately after they finish their prison sentences.
How ’bout them Deplorables!
You made this happen by electing Donald Trump. And Trump kept his promise of appointing Conservative America-loving judges.
The article continues,
The ruling, authored by conservative Justice Samuel Alito, left open the possibility that some individual immigrants could challenge their detention. These immigrants potentially could argue that the use of the 1996 federal law involved in the case, the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act, against them long after finishing their sentences would violate their due process rights under the U.S. Constitution.
The law states the government can detain convicted immigrants “when the alien is released” from criminal detention. Civil rights lawyers argued that the language of the law shows that it applies only immediately after immigrants are released. The Trump administration said the government should have the power to detain such immigrants anytime.
It is not the court’s job, Alito wrote, to impose a time limit for when immigrants can be detained after serving a prison sentence. Alito noted that the court has said in the past that “an official’s crucial duties are better carried out late than never.”
How about the novel approach of illegals using America’s LEGAL immigration system? That way we forego all this mess.
What SCOTUS conservatives had the most problem with is language around when these illegals had to be detained.
Alito said the challengers’ assertion that immigrants had to be detained within 24 hours of ending a prison sentence is “especially hard to swallow.”
In dissent, liberal Justice Stephen Breyer questioned whether the U.S. Congress when it wrote the law “meant to allow the government to apprehend persons years after their release from prison and hold them indefinitely without a bail hearing.”
Tuesday’s decision follows a February 2018 ruling in a similar case in which the conservative majority, over liberal dissent, curbed the ability of immigrants held in long-term detention during deportation proceedings to argue for release.
The court ruled correctly.
SCOTUS sent a message to illegals that there’s a new sheriff in America. And he won’t kowtow to trespassing interlopers. I suggest Central Americans and all others rethink their policy of targeting America for illegal immigration.
The idea of America rationalizing the treatment of criminals shows how far Left the nation has been jolted. Currently, illegals receive better treatment than citizens of America. Where are the outcries for justice on that?
Illegals charged with murder, rape, theft, DUI and so on currently walk the streets of Leftist-run states who think of themselves as “sanctuaries”. Leftist Democrats create most of these hell holes.
Thanks to Trump appointing Conservative judges America stands a chance to recover. And when President Trump replaces Ginsberg, we will win cases much more easily and return sanity back to the country.
