Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
We never thought we would see the day that the Supreme court ruled in favor of President on anything despite having the majority. Justice Roberts is famous for siding against the Consitution so we wonder.... what happened?
Well, read and rejoice!
Supreme Court rules for Trump on detaining immigrants
The Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled that the federal government can detain immigrants indefinitely for past crimes, even if they have been previously released.
In a 5-4 decision that fell along ideological lines, the high court reversed lower court rulings that found immigrants could only be subject to mandatory detention without a bond hearing if they were detained promptly upon their release from custody.
The ruling provides President Donald Trump more authority in his efforts to arrest, detain and deport immigrants convicted of crimes. Trump administration officials frequently lament the inability to remove immigrants due to court rulings around the country.
Justice Samuel Alito wrote in a 26-page majority opinion that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit — a popular Trump target — incorrectly interpreted the federal statute that outlines procedures for mandatory detention.
Alito said “neither the statute's text nor its structure“ supported the contention that immigrants convicted of a crime must be detained immediately to be held in detention without bond.
“Especially hard to swallow” was the plaintiffs’ argument that immigrants could be placed in mandatory detention only if they were arrested on the day they left jail, Alito argued.
Hooray for the SCOTUS one time!!! Let's hope Thomas, Alito, Gorsuch and Kavanaugh stay healthy. Now that Clinton and Obama's out of office we 'might not' have any more sudden heart attack deaths, maybe...
Celebrate this moment!
