SCOTUS Victory For Trump

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 16, 2019

         THE SUPREME COURT HAS VOTED TO ALLOW THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION TO DENY ASYLUM TO MIGRANTS FROM OTHER COUNTRIES WHO TRAVEL THROUGH MEXICO BEFORE REACHING THE U.S. IT IS A MAJOR VICTORY FOR THE PRESIDENT AND HIS EFFORT TO DENY ILLEGAL ALIENS ENTRY INTO THE COUNTRY.

         MIGRANTS WOULD HAVE TO APPLY FOR ASYLUM FIRST IN MEXICO AND HAVE THEIR CLAIMS ADJUDICATED THERE FIRST.

         THE VOTE OVERRIDES A RULING BY A CALIFORNIA DISTRICT COURT, ALLOWING THE LOWER COURT TO CONTNUE TO HEAR ARGUMENTS IN THE CASE.

         ONLY TWO JUSTICES – SOTOMAYOR AND GINSBURG –DISSENTED, SAYING IT IS LIKELY THE PRESIDENT BROKE PROCEDURAL LAW IN ANNOUNCING THE POLICY WITHOUT GOING THROUGH ALL THE REGULATORY HOOPS.

         FUNNY HOW THESE TWO AND OTHER LIBERALS DON’T APPEAR TO CARE THAT THE ILLEGAL ALIENS ARE BREAKING LAWS PASSED BY CONGRESS AND SIGNED BY PREVIOUS PRESIDENTS, INCLUDING DEMOCRATS OBAMA AND CLINTON.

         WE’LL SEE IF IT STEMS THE TIDE. NOW FOR THE WALL AND AT LEAST ONE MORE CONSERVATIVE JUSTICE ON THE COURT. WOULDN’T THAT MAKE THE LEFT GO NUTS? I’M CAL THOMAS.
