To the shock of many Americans, Democrats bend over backward to protect the “rights” of border jumpers. They have fought for years to ensure those who came here illegally can not only stay, but enjoy privileges in our courts of law.
Two major cases were brought to the Supreme Court. People who crossed into the U.S. without permission or legal documents demanded to be set free from detention.
But the highest court in the land was not having it.
From Midland Daily News:
The Supreme Court has ruled against immigrants who are seeking their release from long periods of detention while they fight deportation orders.
In two cases decided Monday, the court said that the immigrants… have no right under a federal law to a bond hearing at which they could argue for their freedom no matter how long they are held…
The justices also ruled 6-3 to limit the immigrants ability to band together in court…
Justice Samuel Alito wrote the court’s opinion holding that federal judges can only rule in the case of the immigrants before them, not a class of similarly situated people.
The Supreme Court ruled in two cases addressing the rights of border jumpers who are detained. In one case, a migrant who is being detained by the government demanded to be set free as his case is being decided.
The court ruled unanimously that non-citizens who broke the law to get here have not right to a bond hearing, which would let them go free.
We all know what often happens when border jumpers are allowed to roam free in the United States. They rarely show up to their hearings, nor do they comply with deportation orders.
This situation was so common under Obama (and now Biden), it was called “catch-and-release.” The court’s decision ensures migrants can’t exploit the system and flee justice.
It also ensures that rights guaranteed to Americans aren’t automatically applied to non-citizens.
The other case would have potentially opened the door to courts setting policy for all future migration cases. But the SCOTUS, in a 6-3 decision, ruled that federal judges can’t decide immigration policy for all similar situations.
That ruling would limit how much power a federal judge has over immigration cases. Which, in the end, protects immigration laws passed by Congress.
Do you support these decisions from the Supreme Court?
- The Supreme Court ruled on two immigration cases.
- The court decided border jumpers cannot request a bail hearing.
- It also decided that federal judges can only decide on cases before them.
