Justice Gorsuch may be a good judge, but he got this terribly wrong.
On a 5-4 decision, for the first time in the Nation’s history, immigration law on illegal aliens, is treated as criminal law for US citizens and legal aliens, thereby giving criminal illegal aliens rights that they do not deserve or have. The writer, Daniel Horowitz, characterized it as “Stolen Sovereignty.” And that’s just what it is.
This is simply astounding. Gorsuch is suggesting that the default position is that a criminal alien gets to stay in the country unless the court can determine beyond a shadow of a doubt that the crime is included in statute and that the statute is not “unconstitutionally vague.” He is suggesting that asking the Supreme Court to overturn the activist Ninth Circuit is somehow an act of legislative intervention.
Consider the impact of this bad decision to the immigration and deportation process alone. Prior to this, under the best of circumstances, deportation can take 5 years, and that’s presuming the illegal immigrant actually shows up for all their hearings. Now, the one million criminal illegal aliens here, will be heaped on the already overloaded court system, and provided lawyers for their defense, like a legal U.S. citizen can get. There’s no one who could estimate how many years that would take before the illegal would be deported. Gorsuch has begun the chaos that will overwhelm the court system.
No doubt William “Bill” Ayers and Barack Obama are popping a cork today, to celebrate this decision. It is the Cloward-Piven Strategy right before your eyes. And executed by a Supreme Court Justice. A so-called originalist Justice at that! Nominated by President Trump.
Of course, this can not stand. It’s just another case made for an Article V Convention of States. Between this and the rogue DOJ, FBI, CIA, NSA with their spying on U.S. citizens, it is our only constitutionally authored fix for what the Left has accomplished so far.
