Supreme Court Allows Trump Administration to Continue “Remain in Mexico” Policy…

The Supreme Court announced today the Trump administration may continue to enforce the “Remain in Mexico” policy requiring asylum-seekers to remain in Mexico pending a review of their claims.

A lower court deemed the program illegal and ordered a suspension that was scheduled to take effect Thursday.  However the Supreme Court stay allows the Trump administration Migrant Protection Protocol (MPP) to remain in force:

(White House) – Today’s order from the Supreme Court is a major victory for the Trump Administration. By allowing the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) to remain in effect, the Court has prevented dangerous chaos at the southern border, avoided a significant escalation in public health threats, and mitigated damage to foreign relations.

MPP, which faithfully implements section 235(b)(2)(C) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, has been crucial to our success working with Mexico to control rampant illegal migration, smuggling, and cartel-driven human trafficking, all of which present wide-ranging risks to both our countries and to the migrants themselves. Open borders do not serve the American public, and we will always strongly enforce the laws at our borders and airports.  (Link)

    Gigantic win, on all levels.

    Not only no “kids in cages” for the election, but also a lot let risk of virus spreading issues from having more people entering into the nation at this risky time.

    I am thrilled about this. Now let’s kick the virus’ butt.

    Look – no one likes to be confronted by terms like “crimes against humanity.” We like to think of “huddled masses yearning to breathe free,” not Africans who were transported across the Atlantic to be thrown against our southern border. We embrace euphemisms like “illegal immigrant” and “non-immigrant visa holder” instead of ugly words like “slave” and “indentured servant.” We don’t want to look at what we know perfectly well has been going on in our midst. We like words like “loophole” and don’t want to think of them as deliberate.

    But here we have a PDJT who is not afraid to call it for what it is and always has been. And, to see the wretched people themselves as the worst victims.

      Sad thing about Black Democrats – they will use old slavery as an excuse/leverage, regardless of whether they have ANY slave ancestry.

      Yet, Black Dem’s NEVER discuss the current slavery abuses in Africa, or with Mexicans.

      “Wise Latina” might be showing evidence of major brain trauma, Roger.

      “Dropped on her bhead as a baby” seems to be a reasonable explanation. Either that, or the Liberalism Virus, which is much worse than Covid-19.

      The young and those incapable of rational thought seem to catch the Liberalism Virus. Smokers, diabetics, asthmatics and the elderly seem to be hardest hit by Covid-19. Both Covid-19 and Liberalism have sad consequences and outcomes.

      We have excellent odds of developing a vaccination for Covid-19 and likely putting that threat in our rearview mirror. Sadly, there is no known vaccination for Liberalism. The only known cure for Liberalism is a smack in the face with the Shovel of Reality.

    “A lower court deemed the program illegal and ordered a suspension that was scheduled to take effect Thursday.”

    Several years ago Rep. Louey Gohmert (R-TX) proposed some judicial stripping legislation to remove the ability of these rogue lower courts to issue these broad injunctions.

    However, this was during the tenure of Rep. Paul Ryan (Traitor- WI), so nothing ever came of it.

      I believe it would be a salutary thing if lifetime judicial appointments were done away with. There’s nothing in the Constitution preventing such legislation. But just try to imagine the ululations associated with introducing such a bill!

      The nationwide injunction has to be addressed by the Supreme Court. You’ll never get this thru Congress.

      About a year and a half ago, Justice Thomas said the SC was going to have to deal with this because it was being over used and abused. Justice Gorsuch said likewise a couple of months ago.

      And of course, Barr was harshly critical of its use in a speech before the Federalist Society last year.

    Apparently the lower court believes that once a person decides to travel to the US and apply for asylum, we are responsible for their safety and well being. That is, the mere intention of applying for asylum earns the applicant guaranteed rights.

    Buried in the news account of this thing is that 8 supremes voted for and only 1 voted against.

    And estimated that the ruling will remain in effect for about a year.

      • Never forget that Sotomayor served La Raza – Yes, “THE RACE: – as a counselor before she was appointed to the Supreme Court by the Racist-In-Chief. And somehow the crazies try to equate President Trump pointing out her open and acknowledged bias as equivalent to Senator Schumer’s despicable threats!

        “La Raza was condemned in 2006 by former U.S. Rep. Charles Norwood, R-Ga., as a radical “pro-illegal immigration lobbying organization that supports racist groups calling for the secession of the western United States as a Hispanic-only homeland.”

        Norwood urged La Raza to renounce its support of the Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan – which sees “the Race” as part of an ethnic group that one day will reclaim Aztlan, the mythical birthplace of the Aztecs. In Chicano folklore, Aztlan includes California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico and parts of Colorado and Texas.”

        https://www.wnd.com/2009/05/99420/

        “Judge Sonia Sotomayor is listed as a member of the National Council of La Raza in an American Bar Association profile discovered by a news organization dedicated to exposing public corruption. The appeals court judge has already ignited a firestorm for publicly saying that a jurist’s ethnicity and sex will make a difference in their judging.

        __

        “The National Council of La Raza describes itself as the largest Latino civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States, but it actually caters to the radical Chicano movement that says California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico and parts of Colorado and Texas belong to Aztlan.

        “The takeover plan is referred to as the “reconquista” of the Western U.S. and it features ethnic cleansing of Americans, Europeans, Africans and Asians once the area is taken back and converted to Aztlan. While this may all sound a bit crazy, this organization is quite powerful and its leaders regularly attend congressional hearings regarding immigration. The La Raza council also receives millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars each year.”

      However, remember that these three provisions were actually not FISA related but Patriot Act provisions. So, there is nuance to what was voted on today.

      I am against all, but we need to understand exactly what passed.

    • But the fundamental concepts behind both FISA and PATRIOT are, in my humble, “so fundamentally defective that they cannot and should not be saved.” If these draconian powers are to be employed against anyone anywhere, then: “The Buck Stops and Starts Here.” Personal, Presidential, Accountability. Nothing less will do.

      The problem doesn’t seem to be the existence of the FISC. It’s the uncontrolled 𝒂𝒃𝒖𝒔𝒆 of the FISC and the 𝒇𝒂𝒊𝒍𝒖𝒓𝒆 𝒕𝒐 𝒑𝒓𝒐𝒔𝒆𝒄𝒖𝒕𝒆 rogue agents. Mandatory, ‘time for crime’ prison sentences, loss of job, and denial of federal employment in the future would be strong deterrents.

    There is no excuse for Central American to be afraid of staying in Mexico, as long as they avoid the cartel-controlled border area. Central Americans are legally obligated to seek asylum inn their first country — Mexico.

    We don’t allow people to come to the USA and wait just because they have filled out immigration paperwork, so how could this ever be OK anyway?

    It’s even worse if you think you can just show up on our doorstep illegally with little or no documentation, and just camp out on our dime until we make a decision, however long that might take.

    And if you don’t like the length of time it might take, TOUGH! That is your problem. This is our country, not yours. We don’t need you telling us we should change our laws just because you broke into our home and want an expedited takeover. Who do you think you are?!

    Go back and tell your own country to follow your idiotic rules, see how that works out for you. And we don’t need to educate your children, or feed them, or house them, or care for them when they are sick. That is your job.

    These two references strike me as being credible. If anyone wishes to debunk either – with facts – I’m all eyes and open minded.

    If these sources are realistic, the true threat is considerably larger than what many of us have believed. If so, President Trump – whom I love – may have missed an opportunity to prepare the public for a pretty serious situation.

    I would have liked something more in terms of what we should really expect, particularly if the incidence and death rates are expected to be much higher than the flu. I know many are concerned with economic impact, but I think if these sources are right the focus should have been more focused on local preparation and saving lives.

    I am not in a panic, but I am actively seeking non-partisan info to inform my decisions. The partisan hate from the left should not lead to us minimize the danger and the need to prepare.
