Supreme Court Rules President Trump can Keep Deadbeat Immigrants Out
Courtesy of Def-Con News 2/3/2020
Great news! The Supreme Court just ruled that the President of the United States is allowed to enforce immigration laws. More specifically that the Trump administration can continue restrictions on immigrants who come here for the sole purpose of mooching off of our generous social programs. If you are a deadbeat loser, you don’t get to come live in the U.S. on the taxpayer’s dime. Naturally, liberals are devastated that our country won’t be flooded with freeloading foreigners.
Fox News reports:
The Supreme Court will allow the Trump administration to enforce, for now, its “public charge” immigration restriction, lifting a pair of preliminary injunctions issued by federal judges.
The Monday order followed a 5-4 split vote that divided the court’s conservatives and liberals.
At issue is the administration’s rule issued in August that would restrict immigrants entering the United States if the government believes they will rely on public assistance, such as housing or health care benefits. Lower federal courts had blocked the policy from being implemented while the issue is being litigated.
The court’s liberal justices, Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, would have blocked the regulation’s enforcement.
It’s a good thing Mitch McConnell wouldn’t let Obama fill Antonin Scalia’s seat, huh?
While a “public charge” inadmissibility standard has long been part of U.S. immigration law, it had not been formally defined by statute. The rule, announced by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services in August, defines a “public charge” as an immigrant who received one or more designated benefits for more than 12 months within a 36-month period.
Those benefits that would be designated included Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), as well as most forms of Medicaid and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps. The rule expands the number of benefits that can be considered from interim guidance issued in 1999.
So, no more mooches? Cool. What’s the problem here?
To Democrats the problem is they count on foreigners for votes and attracting those potential voters requires a little bribery courtesy of the American taxpayer. DNC head Tom Perez was upset that the Supreme Court cut off his supply of new Democratic party supporters:
“It’s sickening to see the United States Supreme Court rubber-stamp Trump’s extreme, anti-immigrant, xenophobic agenda. The conservative justices of the court are allowing the Trump administration to penalize those seeking help and close the door on their aspirations to become a part of and give back to this country as American citizens or residents,” said Perez.
If these immigrants are on public assistance, they aren’t giving back to the country, they are taking from it. These people are bums, which means it isn’t xenophobic to keep them out.
Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar also thought the Supreme Court made a mistake with this ruling:
“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free”
Retweet if your immigrant ancestors wouldn’t be let in if this means-tested immigration policy was in place then. https://twitter.com/GregStohr/status/1221861932929601536 …
BREAKING: On 5-4 vote, Supreme Court lets Trump administration start enforcing new immigrant wealth test, designed to screen out green card applicants seen as being at risk of becoming “public charges”.
The poem on the Statue of Liberty that Omar references is not U.S. law or even official immigration policy. Also, my ancestors came way before Democrats came up with socialist programs and they worked so I guess I won’t be retweeting that.
You know it’s a good SCOTUS decision when it upsets Democrats this badly and on so many levels. They’re mad about losing potential voters, they’re angry that foreign losers aren’t entitled to our hard-earned money, but mostly they’re furious that President Trump has the authority to do what the Constitution says he can do.
