The U.S. Supreme Court just gave President Trump the ‘green light,’ and Democrats are in shock. This is another win for America and commonsense.
Reporter Zoe Tillman tweeted, “The Supreme Court will let the Trump administration enforce … a new policy effectively prohibiting asylum for thousands of people who cross through Mexico to the US.”
She included the full SCOTUS decision in her post and noted that while more litigation is pending, this allows the administration to move forward in the meantime. Liberals, of course, are furious about the decision.
Dissenting from the decision, Justice Sonia Sotomayor said, “Once again the Executive Branch has issued a rule that seeks to upend longstanding practices regarding refugees who seek shelter from persecution.”
She said that the administration’s rule prevents people from applying for asylum “if they enter or seek to enter through the southern border, unless they were first denied asylum in Mexico or another third country.”
Far from trying to keep those from entering who are fleeing legitimate persecution, however, this is about border security. Trump tweeted, “BIG United States Supreme Court WIN for the Border on Asylum!”
