For a long time, it’s been obvious that interested parties have been providing tons of would-be asylum seekers with all the required answers to trigger asylum status. Those days are now over.
It just got a LOT harder to game the system. And you don’t get to lie your way in and park your ass on American soil while you wait for your case to work through the system.
Just as we would make a difference in our own homes, Trump has always been quick to differentiate foreigners who entered America through the door from those who slip over the fence.
If you have a legitimate reason to be here, welcome! If you’re lying through your teeth to game the system? Hard pass.
Now, after the courts have been choked for years with bogus claims of Asylum with the specific intent of gaming the system, the Supreme Court has finally delivered a ruling that will help back the President up.
In a 7-2 vote, the court said people who fail to make a valid case for asylum in their initial screenings, by credibly claiming that they fear persecution at home, can be fast-tracked for deportation and cannot challenge that decision in federal court.
The ruling was a defeat for Vijayakumar Thuraissigiam of Sri Lanka, who was detained by federal agents 25 yards north of the U.S.-Mexico border. He said that as a member of his home country’s Tamil minority, he faced harm if returned and had once been kidnapped and beaten, though he said he wasn’t sure why he was assaulted.
When his asylum claim was rejected, he sought help in federal court by filing a habeas corpus petition, invoking the Constitution’s guarantee against unlawful detention. But the Supreme Court said the option wasn’t open to him.
Writing for the majority, Justice Samuel Alito said that form of relief is intended to be used for those seeking release from detention, not as an avenue to get into federal court. And other constitutional rights of due process do not automatically apply to migrants simply because they set foot on U.S. soil and have not been legally admitted.
The dissenting votes, for those keeping score at home, were Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.
We’ve all seen the dishonest games the left have played with the power they’re entrusted with, they’re obviously unworthy of that trust.
But what about 2020? Could a moral person pull a lever for Trump with their integrity intact? Would Jesus himself vote for Trump? We’re glad you asked. There’s a brand new book that covers precisely that question:
“Would Jesus Vote For Trump?” by Doug Giles and Brandon Vallorani.
Would Jesus ever choose someone, with a less than stellar past, to be a leader? Would Jesus be cool with how Trump blasts CNN, The Left, and his feckless ‘compadres’ on The Right? What about Health Care? Would the Great Physician give Trump’s opposition to ObamaCare the ‘two thumbs up?’ Find out in this BEST-SELLER!
