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.
Two Men Arrested for Planning Terrorist Attack on Trump Tower in Support of ISIS
They’re from South Carolina and Texas.
The FBI has arrested two men and charged them with planning terrorist attacks on locations such as New York’s Trump Tower in support of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.
Kristopher Sean Matthews of South Carolina and Jaylyn Christopher Molina of Texas have been charged with conspiring to provide material support or resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization.
Matthews adopted the pseudonym Ali Jibreel, and Molina the name Abdur Rahim.
The pair allegedly plotted to attack government facilities and New York’s Trump Tower, discussing their plans in jihadist chatrooms. They were busted by federal informants within these honeypots.
“We need to stick together, we need to defeat them, we need to take a lot of casualties,” said Molina of the pair’s plotting. Molina spoke of his allegiance to ISIS in the server. “You are my enemy (America) and never will I wear your flag … but I will raise the black flag of Allah.”
They also spoke of the proposition of traveling to Syria in order to fight for ISIS, an idea that would’ve almost certainly resulted in their quick capture or death. American citizens caught fighting for ISIS on foreign battlefields have proven to be a legal nightmare for American military and civil law to manage.
Both were arrested on Monday. They face a maximum penalty of twenty years in prison, with a lifetime of supervised release.
These clowns didn’t get very far in actually planning acts of violence in support of ISIS, and they seem to have somewhat missed the boat- ISIS has largely been defeated by American-backed Kurdish militias and the Iraqi and Syrian governments. But they deserve punishment nonetheless.
