Early on Tuesday, the Supreme Court ruled that a law to deport criminal immigrants for violent crimes was too vague, handing President Donald Trump a major defeat. While the 5-4 decision went mostly as expected, Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Justice Neil Gorsuch flipped and joined liberal justices against President Trump’s agenda.
The ruling was a win for an immigrant with two burglary convictions. James Garcia Dimaya contends that because his crimes should not be considered violent crimes, and therefore not meet the grounds for deportation. The Justice Department, under both Barack Obama and Donald Trump, defended the law authorizing his deportation.
The case was initially brought up in 2016, but was delayed due to an expected 4-4 deadlock in the wake of Justice Antonin Scalia’s death.
Scalia’s death makes this seeming betrayal even more harsh for conservatives. Gorsuch was touted as being “in the mold of Antonin Scalia.” But this decision decisively proves that is not the case.
Maria Espinoza, who co-founded the Remembrance Project, blasted Gorsuch, calling his vote “a betrayal on the level of what we saw with John Roberts and Obamacare.”
Espinoza continued: “If President Trump gets another Supreme Court nomination, he’d better be to the right of Gorsuch.”
The Remembrance Project is a non-profit organization that advocates for citizens killed by illegal immigrants.
For conservatives concerned about America’s immigration problems, Justice Neil Gorsuch was expected to be an advocate. But in the wake of this decision, it is beginning to look as though his nomination may have been a step in the wrong direction.
A previous version of this post stated that the criminal was an illegal alien. The burglar is technically a legal immigrant convicted of multiple illegal things.
Arizona Border Patrol Officer Stabbed Multiple Times, Shoots and Kills Criminal Alien
A Border Patrol officer patrolling the US-Mexico border shot and killed a man who stabbed him multiple times in Southern Arizona on Monday night.
CBP officials reported that the unnamed agent was patrolling near the transnational city of Nogales, Arizona, when he encountered a group of individuals he suspected to be aliens entering the country illegally. One man accompanying them group attacked the agent when he sought to apprehend the aliens, stabbing him multiple times.
The CBP agent went on to fatally shoot the alien, who may have been a smuggler moving a group of illegal migrants across the border. Deputies of the Santa Cruz Sheriff’s Office were called to provide backup, and the Border Patrol agent that was stabbed had to be airlifted to a Tucson hospital early on Tuesday morning. Fortunately, he was released from the hospital later the same day.
Cartel-affiliated criminal smugglers have increasingly sought to infiltrate the United States in Arizona, hoping to avoid a buffed border patrol presence in Texas and new wall construction in the most trafficked areas of the border.
Preliminary reports indicate that the Border Patrol agent may have been alone when he encountered the smuggler’s group of criminal aliens, a hazard that has resulted in violent attacks on Border Patrol agents by cartel-affiliated criminals before.
The FBI is reportedly investigating the incident. It’s unclear if the group of aliens encountered by the agent have been expelled under special coronavirus immigration regulations, transferred into the custody of immigration detention, or simply allowed to proceed into the country.
