After rewriting obamacare making it into a tax and legal, Chief Justice John Roberts does it again siding with the liberal members of the Supreme Court to overrule Pres Trump’s ban on illegal aliens abusing the immigration system claiming asylum.
In a 5-4 ruling SCOTUS has overstepped their mandate violating the Separation of Powers. For the sake of conversation and debate on FACTS, we will leave Trump out of this for a moment. The President of the United States on some issues has plenary powers (“Complete power over a particular area with no limitations.”) especially when it revolves around national security, more specifically immigration as to who can and cannot enter the US. Per 8 US Code § 1182 – Inadmissible aliens, the President has the power to grant or deny access to anyone seeking entry into the US for any reason.
“…(f) Suspension of Entry or Imposition of Restrictions by President
Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.…”
Back to Trump – This is the same law that granted Pres Trump the power to enact the Travel Ban that WAS upheld by SCOTUS, after numerous lower court challenges! Read it again, the law reads “any aliens or of any class of aliens” which means asylum seekers can arguably be classified under [It’s safe to assume the admin’s attorneys are working on this as we speak].
Leaving your country of origin to enter another because of general violence and economic disparity IS NOT grounds for asylum. It sucks for those people, but they cannot be permitted to abuse our immigration system that has already been perverted by corrupt politicians. Christians escaping the middle east because they are being wiped out by islamic jihadists because they believe in Christ not Allah is a legitimate claim. In general those facing acts of genocide are prime candidates for asylum as are those living under tyrannical regimes who are being threatened assaulted etc over their political beliefs which is a direct threat to their govt. Not being able to make enough money to feed your family because nation you come from economy is in the toilet, or has bowed down to organized crime is not enough. These alleged asylum seekers are not being directly threatened, sorry to say they have no claim. Now if they have the dirt on cartels, gangs and their ties to the govt that’s another story, but it’s not the case.
Roberts KNOWS all of this and he is playing games. The Chief Justice is not acting as a jurist but a political activist defying the President, just as he did with obamacare and other controversial decisions. It is swing vote decisions like this that give many cause to call for Term Limits for the Judiciary Branch. These judges who are not elected become unhinged, making decisions that affect millions.
Prepare yourselves America, Roberts will continue to take positions against Trump, he will.. is the swing vote like fmr Justice Kennedy.
