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.

Lisa Page Confirms: The Chinese, Not The Russians, Hacked Hillary’s Emails
WASHINGTON — Hillary Rodham Clinton’s Blackberry was hacked by the Chinese, according to Peter Strzok’s mistress Lisa Page, who testified behind closed doors about her role in Operation Crossfire Hurricane.
While her boyfriend Strzok stonewalled Congress, Page was open to cooperating behind the scenes with Republican lawmakers. Ohio’s Jim Jordan led the way in getting Page into backdoor meetings where she aided investigators in their probe of Page and Strzok’s collusion against the Trump government.
TruePundit reports: The embattled Page tossed James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and Bill Priestap among others under the Congressional bus, alleging the upper echelon of the FBI concealed intelligence confirming Chinese state-backed ‘assets’ had illegally acquired former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 30,000+ “missing” emails, federal sources said. The Russians didn’t do it. The Chinese did, according to well-placed FBI sources.
This fact victory is very important for me, because I reported at Breitbart during the first campaign that Hillary Clinton’s Blackberry was hacked by the Chinese. This is what forced Peter Strzok and the “Operation Crossfire Hurricane” people to snap into motion, making sure that James Comey did NOT find Hillary Clinton “gross and negligent” for purposes of the Espionage Act of 1913.
The evidence is right here. As I wrote: “Newly released emails show that Hillary Clinton was aware of the security problems with her personal Blackberry but used the device anyway for sending and receiving emails.
Clinton’s knowledge of the Blackberry problem — and her apparent disregard for its implications — marks a crucial point in any potential criminal case that could be made against her by the Department of Justice.
To prove a violation of the Espionage Act of 1913, prosecutors must show that a person’s “gross negligence” allowed national defense information to be “lost, stolen, abstracted or destroyed.”
“I’m so sorry but I’m just seeing this (no blackberry contact permitted in my office) and I’m on the way to the shuttle to NY,” Clinton said in an email to personal Clinton health adviser Mark Hyman on February 27, 2009. The email was obtained by Judicial Watch, a nonprofit transparency group that is suing the State Department.
“Tomorrow I leave for Egypt, Israel, Europe and Turkey for a week. I hope the meeting and the hearing goes well. Let me know,” Clinton added.
Clinton was referring to the fact that her Blackberry was not allowed in her seventh-floor “Mahogany Row” office at the State Department due to its security vulnerability.
But Clinton kept on using the Blackberry for classified information, at least until 2011. Her top aide, Wendy Sherman, made clear in a 2013 video that Clinton was exchanging classified emails on her Blackberry that could not have existed on a non-classified system.”
