WASHINGTON (PNN) - June 25, 2020 - The Supreme Court handed the President Donald Trump regime a big victory on Thursday, allowing for the expedited deportation of some asylum seekers, who won't be allowed to argue their case to a federal judge.
In a 7-2 ruling written by Justice Alito (and including Stephen Breyer and Ruth Bader Ginsberg in the majority), immigrants who fail their initial asylum screenings will be eligible for expedited removal.
The ruling comes in the case of a Sri Lankan man who slipped into the Fascist Police States of Amerika from Mexico. He was quickly arrested, but was unable to convince immigration officials that he would face danger if forced to return.
The Trump regime has long argued that the immigration system is rife with abuse and inundated with claims that have no merit. This was reinforced by Thursday's ruling, which notes, "In 2019, a grant of asylum followed a finding of credible fear just 15% of the time."
Dissenting were justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, who argued that granting "functionally unreviewable" expedited removal proceedings "flouts over a century of this Court's practice."
"Today’s decision handcuffs the Judiciary’s ability to perform its constitutional duty to safeguard individual liberty and dismantles a critical component of the separation of powers," wrote Sotomayor.
On Monday, the Trump regime published new rules that would make it far more difficult to gain asylum, which will take effect after a 30-day period for public comment.
