On Monday, the entire United States Supreme Court said in no uncertain terms that illegal aliens who have been given Temporary Protected Status are not eligible for green cards to permanently remain in the U.S.
This move cuts at the very heart of what Democrats have been trying to do to this country.
The vote was a clean stab to the very soul of the Dems plot…9-0. There were no dissenters at all.
Could it be that the liberal side of SCOTUS even thinks the Dems have gone too far?
Well, take a look for yourself…
Breitbart reported that Justice Elena Kagan, appointed to the court by former President Obama, wrote in a 9-0 decision that a “TPS recipient who entered the United States unlawfully is not eligible … for [lawful permanent resident] status merely by dint of his TPS.”
Jose Santos Sanchez, an illegal alien from El Salvador, came to the U.S. illegally in 1997. In 2001, Sanchez was provided TPS, a nonimmigrant status that allows him to remain in the U.S. for as long as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) extends TPS for El Salvador.
In 2014, Sanchez applied for lawful permanent resident status, commonly known as a green card, to permanently resettle in the U.S. After the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) agency denied Sanchez’s green card application on the grounds that he first entered the U.S. illegally, Sanchez challenged the decision in a federal district court and won.
Then, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit reversed the decision, finding that because Sanchez first entered the U.S. illegally, he was not eligible for a green card under federal immigration law.
The Supreme Court held that federal immigration law “applied according to its plain terms, prevents Sanchez from becoming a [lawful permanent resident].”
“The question here is whether the conferral of TPS enables him to obtain [lawful permanent resident] status despite his unlawful entry,” Kagan writes in the Court’s opinion. “We hold that it does not.”
This is a big ruling and a huge victory for our side, which does not want to flood our country will illegal aliens at every turn.
And another reason this is so big is that it’s the third 9-0 SCOTUS decision on immigration in the past two weeks.
The Court unanimously ruled against a previously deported criminal illegal alien who sought to avoid deportation.
And last week, the Court unanimously reversed a Ninth Circuit appeals court decision that helped grant immigration relief to illegal aliens seeking asylum to stay in the U.S.
Could the tide finally be turning?
This is why we must never stop fighting.
