Neil Gorsuch was a great pick and a great political gamble by Mitch McConnell to even get him in the seat. Neil broke the hearts of the left because he will absolutely tilt the power of the highest court in the land back to conservative control.
And today he just broke a tie than handed Trump and the GOP a huge win.
The Supreme Court just ruled that immigrants awaiting decisions on their status in the U.S. don’t have rights to have the courts waste their time giving them bond hearings every six months.
This ruling effectively means the Federal government can detain them indefinitely until their cases are resolved.
The majority opinion, written by Justice Samuel Alito, said that the decision by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals that detained immigrants have the right to periodic bond hearings was based on “implausible constructions” of immigration laws.
When “[r]ead most naturally,” Alito writes, the immigration statutes in question “mandate detention of applicants for admission until certain proceedings have concluded.” Detention must end once the proceedings end, Alito says, adding: “Until that point, however, nothing in the statutory text imposes any limit on the length of detention.”
Justices Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Justice Sonia Sotomayor dissented from the majority.
The left is again all hysterical about this decision saying it violates the constitution but it does not. In many cases these are criminals convicted of felony acts.
