Supreme Court strikes down liberal attempt to create illegal immigration loophole

June 7, 2021

I have to be honest, this story caught me unawares but apparently several Democrats had hope to use a pending court case to create a loophole which would allow some illegal immigrants permanent residency. But according to this story the Supreme Court has upheld the law and struck down this attempt, here is more:

On Monday, the Supreme Court unanimously rejected an illegal immigrant’s attempt to twist immigration law and create a loophole that would allow thousands of illegal immigrants to become lawful permanent residents. Democratic senators and attorneys general advocated for this loophole

“Petitioner Jose Santos Sanchez entered this country unlawfully from El Salvador. Years later, because of unsafe living conditions in that country, the Government granted him Temporary Protected Status (TPS), entitling him to stay and work in the United States for as long as those conditions persist,”

“Sanchez now wishes to become a lawful permanent resident (LPR) of the United States. The question here is whether the conferral of TPS enables him to obtain LPR status despite his unlawful entry. We hold that it does not,”

U.S. immigration law, “applied according to its plain terms,” “prevents Sanchez from becoming an LPR. There is no dispute that Sanchez ‘entered the United States in the late 1990s unlawfully, without inspection.’”

U.S. law “generally requires a lawful admission before a person can obtain LPR status. Sanchez was not lawfully admitted, and his TPS does not alter that fact. He therefore cannot become a permanent resident of this country.”

The best part of this decision is that the liberals cannot blame the xenophobic, racist, nativist Justices which were appointed by Donald Trump because this was a unanimous decision and the opinion, quoted in part above, was written by none other than Justice Elena Kagan, an Obama appointee.

    I almost can’t believe that after all these years, things seem finally to be breaking our way. If this keeps up, all we have to do is find a way to stop Biden and company from completely ruining the U.S. between now and the inauguration in January, 2025.

    China remains a problem, but hopefully there’s a way to hold them down as well.

      We have to take the victories when we can get them! Hopefully this means things are turning our way but they won’t go down without a fight!
