Potential SCOTUS Nominee Kethledge Soft on Immigration

Published

on

A perceived frontrunner for nomination to the Supreme Court of The United States has a weak record on immigration.

Judge Raymond Kethledge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, “has consistently demonstrated interpretations of immigration law at odds with the conservative wing of the Supreme Court,” according to Breitbart.

In a case called Nguyen v. Holder, Kethledge sided with President Carter-appointed judges, blocking the deportation of a green card holder who lied on his visa application, and committed grand theft auto while residing in the U.S.

In a decision in Patel v. USCIS, a 2013 case, Kethledge ruled in favor of an illegal alien who overstayed a tourist visa and spent the next 10 years in the U.S. seeking an employment visa. The ruling allowed the illegal immigrant to challenge whether the employer should be forced to investigate whether the employer’s company qualified to have foreign workers in the country.

In his opinion, Kethledge took a stance that benefits immigrant workers at the expense of American workers.

“One can speculate that Congress meant to exclude certain aliens to protect American workers, and admit other, ‘qualified’ aliens to help American employers,” he wrote. “But there is no basis in the text of the statute—none—to conclude that Congress was completely indifferent to the interests of the ‘qualified immigrants’ themselves.”

Author and pundit Ann Coulter, who has written extensively on the American illegal immigration crisis, weighed in on Twitter.

“Hardiman & Kethledge are open borders zealots,” she said. “Kavanaugh rejected an employer’s demand for “guest workers,” saying “mere economic expediency does not authorize an employer to displace American workers for foreign workers.”

In later tweets, Coulter cited the above court decisions to defend her claims.

CNN fawned over Kethledge in a recent opinion piece.

“Those familiar with Ray’s legal scholarship know he’s a brilliant writer,” wrote Michael Erwin. “I learned that a driving factor in his ability to write is his ability to read and process information rapidly. Ray consumes books and articles at a superhuman pace and is endlessly curious.”

President Donald J. Trump is expected to announce his appointee for the SCOTUS on July 9, filling a seat that will be soon be vacated by Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Gen. Daniel R. Hokanson, chief of the National Guard Bureau, told media members on Monday that a force of up to 15,000 will deploy to D.C. with all their issued equipment, including their individual weapons. So if the need arises, “they are close by and they are readily accessible.”

The Pentagon initially authorized up to six thousand two hundred Guard members from Maryland, Virginia, New York, New Jersey, Delaware and Pennsylvania to deploy to D.C. on federal status to maintain security through Inauguration Day.
