Justice Thomas joins liberal SCOTUS majority in deportation case

The left is unhappy with the fact that the U.S. Supreme Court is currently split 6-3 in favor of conservatives. However, a recent ruling proves that even the most right-wing justices fall on the side of the law rather than their own political leanings.

Conservative Supreme Court Justices Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Amy Coney Barrett sided with the more liberal justices to decide a technical issue on a federal immigration case, the Washington Examiner reported. The crux of the matter involved how the government sent deportation notices to an illegal immigrant.

According to The Hill, the decision was 6-3 with Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Samuel Alito dissenting. The case was brought on behalf of Guatemalan immigrant Agusto Niz-Chavez who was sent a deportation notice in 2013 when he’d been in the country for eight years.

The timeline is significant because had his deportation notice been deemed adequate, it would have “stopped the clock” and excluded him from taking advantage of a loophole that allows immigrants who have been in the country more than ten years extra leniency. Instead, the case hinged upon the government’s failure to provide a single comprehensive document that outlined everything required for his deportation hearing at the eight-year mark.

Moreover, the whole case actually came down to the article “a” in front of the language about the requirement for sending deportation notice. Because the information given to Niz-Chavez was spread over several documents was considered not adequate after the court’s decision, the man would be allowed to stay.

“At one level, today’s dispute may seem semantic, focused on a single word, a small one at that,” Gorsuch wrote in his opinion. “But words are how the law constrains power. In this case, the law’s terms ensure that, when the federal government seeks a procedural advantage against an individual, it will at least supply him with a single and reasonably comprehensive statement of the nature of the proceedings against him,” he added.

Kavanaugh said in the dissenting opinion that it improperly sided with Niz-Chavez, stating the decision meant “that, in order to stop the 10-year clock, the Government must provide written notice in one document, not two,” he wrote. “I find the Court’s conclusion rather perplexing as a matter of statutory interpretation and common sense.”

Legal matters are often decided based on one or two words, so it isn’t necessarily a valid criticism by Kavanaugh. However, one thing it does show is that these justices can decide cases based on the evidence without injecting their own political opinions — at least for conservative justices, that is.

Google pay 390$ reliably my last paycheck was $55000 working 10 hours out of consistently on the web. My increasingly youthful kinfolk mate has been averaging 20k all through continuous months and he works around 24 hours reliably. I can’t trust how direct it was once I attempted it out. This is my essential concern…:) For more info visit any tab on this site Thanks a lot GOOD LUCK………._

Most of us want to have good income but don’t know how to do that on Internet there are a lot of methods to earn huge sum, but whenever Buddies try that they get trapped in a scam/fraud so I thought to share with you a genuine and guaranteed method for free to earn huge sum of money at home. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is where I started.

Double-speak. One word, two words, what’s the difference? He’s illegal. Why don’t you put Biden out of his misery and tell him no matter how hard he tries he ain’t gonna find separated kids from families? Want a tip-off? If they call for mommy and daddy they are fake. I was there, they should be calling for ‘mommy and papi.’ I think Justice Roberts knows that.

Rob could not agree more i guess being illegal mean’s nothing to this country and the court system .

ILLEGAL ALIENS in this country means a lot. You get welfare, free health care and free education on the taxpayers dime. What do these brainless idiots think that ILLEGAL means? The law is being broken and action should be taken for all criminals including ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS.

I hope this doesn’t set precedent so all illegals can’t be deported. What ever happened to APPLYING LEGALLY!!?? Too lazy? don’t speak english? just plain defiant? Rules don’t apply to you? want to stay under the radar for unknown reasons? if your not legal you don’t have to obey the rules? you can work anonymously and not have to pay American Taxes? Don’t have to commit to be a law abiding citizen–you have no obligations?? you get stimulus checks whether you are illegal or not? You get more ‘free stuff’ if you are illegal? If you remain anonymous and commit a scam or a crime, nobody will be able to find you? nobody is watching so you can disappear into society, unnoticed?. All of the above?

they censor my comments too. Hes only looking at how many votes he can get out of them as they multiply and are compliant little communists he can control. Letting people in illegally Promotes DEPENDENCE on our Tax money to support them. If they had the ethics of our proud forefathers, who came LEGALLY, they wouldn’t be trying to sneak in and find the nearest welfare office. Send them back to apply legally if they really want to live in third world America

His next big agenda is Weather Warfare and biochemical warfare and poisoning our food. He is bound and determined to depopulate the world, by vaccines, sterilization and bacterial infections from wearing Preinfected masks. Total BS. They are promoting FEAR instead of Freedom. They want to TAKE our Freedom away. Sadly they have most people believing them, lining up for the “vaccine”

notice he doesn’t vaccinate them because he wants them to stay alive and multiply. He wants to get rid of Americans with the vaccine.If it doesn’t kill them or maim them in some way at least it will keep them from reproducing and eventually Americans will be replaced with Illegals.
