Supreme Court Allows Trump Administration to Deny Green Cards for Immigrants Likely to Abuse Welfare

SCOTUS has come up big!

Published

The United States Supreme Court (SCOTUS) ruled on Monday by a narrow 5-4 decision that the Trump administration can lawfully deny green cards to immigrants who are likely to get on the dole and abuse welfare benefits as legitimized U.S. citizens.

Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan dissented from the majority vote. Justices John Roberts, Brett Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Neil Gorsuch voted to affirm the Trump administration proposal to reign in the out-of-control welfare system that is regularly exploited by foreigners in a myriad of ways.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) stated in August 2019 that they were intending to expand the definition of “public charge” to make it apply for immigrants whose financial status indicated a need for government to provide their income. The Trump administration intended to apply this not only to cash benefits but also to Medicaid, housing assistance, and food aid.

“I am tired of seeing our taxpayer paying for people to come into the country and immediately go onto welfare and various other things,” Trump said when announcing the rule last year. “So I think we’re doing it right.”

The proposed Trump administration rule change was immediately challenged by leftist lawfare attorneys in court. An activist federal judge in New York issued an injunction on the DHS decision after immigrant aid organizations were joined by New York, Connecticut, Vermont, and New York City in their lawsuit against the Trump administration.

DHS official Ken Cuccinelli has said that the new rules will promote “the ideals of self-sufficiency and personal responsibility, ensuring that immigrants are able to support themselves and become successful here in America.”

“Obviously, we’re happy to see the Supreme Court step in the way they did here,” Cuccinelli said following news of today’s SCOTUS ruling.

Justices Neil Gorsuch and Clarence Thomas also said on Monday that the courts have been issuing nationwide injunctions more than ever during the Trump administration, and admonished the practice. They believe that the abuses have caused “chaos for the litigants, the government, the courts, and all those affected by these conflicting decisions.”

Liberals are already crying foul over the ruling that will make it harder for immigrants to be placed on the dole and made into Democrat voters for the rest of their lives.

The Trump administration’s re-making of the judiciary is already paying dividends for conservatives who wish to curtail the massive welfare state and prevent the demographic shift that threatens America’s future.

Mitch McConnell Censured by Nelson County, Kentucky Republican Party for Betrayal of President Trump

Kentucky Republicans aren’t happy.

Published

Kentucky Senator and Republican Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has been formally censured by the Nelson County, Kentucky Republican Party, with party officials accusing the establishment Republican of betraying President Donald Trump.

A censure resolution was unanimously approved on Tuesday evening, in response to McConnell’s claim that President Trump was responsible for a raucous protest at the US Capitol earlier this month.

The censure “demands (McConnell) retract his statements impugning the honor of President Donald J. Trump,” referring to claims made that President Trump incited the Capitol riot. President Trump had urged rallygoers to proceed to the Capitol peacefully, before a small minority of those present took matters too far and trespassed onto Capitol grounds, disrupting election certification proceedings.

I think it’s despicable. I think it’s a shame what he did today, because he used us over the past year to get his sorry butt reelected,” said a Kentucky Republican who phoned into the Nelson County GOP meeting in which McConnell was censured. “He used us.

The censure resolution accuses McConnell of  having “abandoned his Republican base that put him in office.

McConnell has even gone so far as to suggest that he’d consider convicting President Trump in an impeachment trial, even after he’s left office. Such a development would represent no less than a final, ultimate betrayal of President Trump, with legal experts suggesting such a move isn’t even legal, with the Senate lacking jurisdiction to convict a private citizen.

Kentucky Republicans are also pushing for a rebuke of McConnell within  the Kentucky Republican Party at the state level, and activists aim to pass a resolution requesting that McConnell shut down a second, hoax impeachment trial of President Trump, who has since left office.
