The Supreme Court hands Donald Trump a victory on deportations

June 25, 2020

It really is hard predicting which way the Supreme Court is going to rule on any given issue nowadays and here is the latest case in point; just last week the Supreme Court ruled against the President’s attempt to rescind the DACA program with John Roberts siding with the liberals, and then yesterday in a 7-2 decision with Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer voting with the conservatives the highest court in the land ruled for Donald Trump’s fast track deportation policy. Here is more:

The U.S. Supreme Court handed the Trump administration a major victory on a signature issue Thursday, ruling that asylum-seekers whose claims are initially denied by immigration officials have no right to a hearing before a judge.

The decision authorizes the Trump administration to fast-track deportations for thousands of asylum-seekers after bare-bones screening procedures.

Immigrants who make a claim for asylum must initially prove to immigration officials that they have a “credible fear” of persecution in their country of origin to proceed with the full asylum process. If they fail, they can be deported without ever having the opportunity to make their case in court.

He said that neither the right of habeas corpus nor the right to due process of law requires a hearing before a judge for those turned down in their initial asylum screenings. This framework, he said, was properly authorized by Congress in a 1996 law aimed at speeding deportations at the border.

  While voting in favor of the policy in the one particular case before the Supreme Court Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer did not agree with Samuel Alito majority statement because they felt it was too broad and that the decision should be limited to this one case.

    Honestly, is Ruth even alive? Her ‘double’ or ‘triple’/hologram should not be allow to fill that position. Creepy, and those people go along w/ it. How can anything get corrected when no one fesses up to the Truth, or upholds it? A bunch of Con artist.
    It’s strange seeing her face in any article because usually we only see the top of her head … while she’s dozing.

      They are all part of it, Shakespeare was right all those years ago about the world being a stage and we being the poor players.

        We need somebody with that big hook to reach in from the side of the stage and yank them out of there!
