If ya haven’t realized already….
America allows it’s President wide latitude to run immigration policy….
Donald Trump has used that power to work against the very foundation of the countries immigration policy that has been effect for decades, even centuries….
President Donald Trump scored a major legal victory on immigration on Wednesday as the Supreme Court gave him the go-ahead to proceed with a new policy barring asylum for migrants who pass through another country en route to the U.S.
The high court order allows the policy, which is expected to drastically reduce asylum granted to Central American migrants, to be implemented across the U.S.-Mexico border as court challenges over its legality play out.
While the Supreme Court’s emergency stay is technically an interim one, it appears unlikely that the justices would hear arguments on the dispute this term, creating the prospect that Trump’s policy could be in effect through next year’s election regardless of how the high court ultimately rules.
Only two justices noted dissent from the Supreme Court’s action, Democratic appointees Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
The president was quick to tout the ruling as a triumph for his efforts to dramatically reshape immigration policy.
“BIG United States Supreme Court WIN for the Border on Asylum!” Trump tweeted on Wednesday evening.
A top Trump administration immigration official, acting U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Ken Cuccinelli, used a similarly exuberant tone to celebrate the court’s action.
“YUGE Win at #SCOTUS today!” he wrote on Twitter.
As is customary in stay rulings, the justices joining in the decision did not explain their rationale. However, Sotomayor wrote an opinion that Ginsburg joined denouncing the court’s action as a moral abdication that puts the lives of thousands at risk.
Sotomayor also stressed that the new regulation — issued as an “interim final rule” — didn’t undergo a period of public comment before taking effect.
“It is especially concerning, moreover, that the rule the government promulgated topples decades of settled asylum practices and affects some of the most vulnerable people in the Western Hemisphere — without affording the public a chance to weigh in,” she wrote.
Immigrant-rights advocates used stark language to decry the court’s ruling.
“The human toll of today’s asylum ban stay will be horrific,” Omar Jadwat, an American Civil Liberties Union attorney, wrote on Twitter….
