Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor blasted the court’s conservative turn since the additions of new Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, claiming the court was losing its credibility in a dissent for a case approving the Trump’s new ‘public charge’ denying admittance for immigrants dependent on public benefits.
Sotomayor issued the dissent on Friday, when the court ruled in a 5-4 vote to uphold the public charge rule. The rule makes immigrants who are “likely at any time to become a public charge” ineligible to receive green cards. The rule in effect reserves assistance programs such as Medicaid and food stamps for U.S citizens.
Such a public charge rule has wide-ranging precedent in the history of American immigration policy, and the term was first used in law more than a hundred years ago in the Immigration Act of 1882. Yet to the Supreme Court’s liberal activist wing it’s always been a violation of the Constitution. Sotomayor claimed the court’s credibility was being threatened by its audacity to approve commonsense restrictions in immigration.
“That is because the Court—in this case, the New York cases, and many others—has been all too quick to grant the Government’s ‘reflexive’ requests. But make no mistake: Such a shift in the Court’s own behavior comes at a cost.”
Sotomayor was alluding to Trump administration victories in the Supreme Court. The administration has won a plethora of legal victories at the highest level of America’s justice system, often overturning dubious national injunctions from activist judges of liberal circuit courts.
“I fear that this disparity in treatment erodes the fair and balanced decisionmaking process that this Court must strive to protect.”
It’s quite unusual for a Supreme Court Justice to openly criticize the judgements of her own institution. The court has become increasingly unpopular on the Left, posing an unavoidable obstacle to attempts to enshrine leftist policy priorities through the court system.
Perhaps it turns out that unrestricted judicial activism isn’t the flawless political strategy the Left has imagined it to be.
Border Patrol Officials Reporting Biden Surge in Illegal Immigration Following Election
They think they’ll be granted amnesty.
Senior Border Patrol officials are warning of a surge in illegal migration at the southern border in recent weeks, coming directly in response to perceived results of the still-pending presidential election.
Acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan is ascribing a 21% increase in apprehension levels at the border over the last month to both economic circumstances in Central America and “perceived and or anticipated shifts in policies” following the November 3rd election. Morgan was speaking to the Washington Times.
CBP personnel intercepted 69,000 illegal migrants at the southern border in October, up from 58,000 in September.
Illegal immigration levels declined in early 2020 due to the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, but they’ve increased in recent months as border crossers flee the effects of the virus’s recession in Central America and Mexico. CBP has been authorized by the Trump administration to use expedited “expulsion” policies to return illegal immigrants to the nation they came from on the basis of coronavirus public health concerns.
Joe Biden has pledged to open the borders of the United States, stating that he intends only to deport felons convicted of violent crimes while in the country illegally. This repudiation of immigration enforcement, if actually adopted, would likely lure tens of millions- if not hundreds of millions- of unauthorized migrants to the United States in various forms in coming years.
Biden has also pledged to grant American citizenship to more than 11 million illegal aliens present in the United States. This proposal would require the cooperation of Congress, but he can reinstate the DACA amnesty program through executive action.
Asylum seekers camped out in the Mexican border city of Matamoros reportedly celebrated Biden’s perceived victory, eager for a chance to obtain access to the United States’ welfare, public education, healthcare and infrastructure.
Illegal immigration and cheap labor advocates have claimed that porous borders are an inevitability, but the contrast between President Trump’s immigration enforcement and the ramifications from the mere international perception of a Joe Biden administration seems to suggest otherwise.
