President Trump Scores Big Win in Supreme Court

President Trump’s fight against illegal immigration has scored a huge win in the Supreme Court. Fox News reports:

The Supreme Court on Tuesday handed the Trump administration a victory in its battle to clamp down on illegal immigration by making it easier to detain immigrants with criminal records.

The ruling that federal immigration authorities can detain immigrants awaiting deportation anytime after they have been released from prison on criminal charges represents a victory for President Trump.

In the case before the justices, a group of mostly green card holders argued that unless immigrants were picked up immediately after finishing their prison sentence, they should get a hearing to argue for their release while deportation proceedings go forward. But in the 5-4 decision on Tuesday, the Supreme Court ruled against them, deciding that federal immigration officials can detain undocumented immigrants at any time after their release from local or state custody. The court also ruled the government maintains broad discretion to decide who would represent a danger to the community in deciding who to release or detain.

During oral arguments in October the Trump administration argued that given the limited money and manpower available, it was nearly impossible for the federal government to immediately detain every immigrant upon their release from custody.

This is a win for law and order, and losing this case would have been a big defeat in the fight against criminal illegals.

Excellent idea. I even though of finding a south pacific island to put them on, let them feed themselves, monitor themselves, house themselves…..kind of like the movie Papillon. The French had the right idea back then…all this immigration costs money, let them pay their own way….or is that not the American way ?):

Its a shame that when an illegal is caught crossing the border that they can’t be tossed back across instead of having them applying for asylum which most of them can’t get anyway, it would save a lot of hassle and time for the US

The U.S. Supreme Court doesn’t “hand out” anything. It judges and votes in compliance of the laws of this land.

I’m shocked that SCOTUS may have actually upheld the law. Was Roberts missing that day????

Every American knows that the ONLY reason the Democratic Communist Party ( DCP )wants open borders is to let in all those illegal voters in to control the election. Any man or woman or judge who agrees with the DCP, is complicit in the overthrow of our government and it’s laws. The USA will never be a Communist or Socialist state. We the American people are not stupid and we will stop those Commie rats by voting President Trump back into office for four more years. We should all thank God for His Gift of President Trump to America. Sincerely, Martin Korab
