SCOTUS decision makes it easier to remove illegal immigrants from US soil

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Thursday against an undocumented immigrant who challenged his removal from the nation after his conviction in Nebraska for using a fake identity for employment.

The 5-3 ruling declared the crime made Clemente Pereida fit for deportation. Pereida has lived in the U.S. for 25 years. The SCOTUS Blog writes,

He and his wife have three children, one of whom is a U.S. citizen and another of whom is a recipient of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA. In order to obtain employment at a cleaning company, Pereida allegedly presented a false Social Security card. He was subsequently convicted of a misdemeanor for attempting to commit the Nebraska crime labeled “criminal impersonation.” Pereida was sentenced to a fine of $100 and no jail time.

Pereida’s case involved the use of a fraudulent social security card to secure a job. The Court’s five conservative judges ruled against Pereida.

The Court’s newest Justice, Amy Coney Barrett, did not rule in the case. She had not been seated when the case began in October 2020.

Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote on behalf of the majority. He stated federal immigration law “includes proving they do not stand convicted of a disqualifying criminal offense.”

Justice Stephen Breyer wrote in his dissent that the court instead should have ruled on behalf of Pereida because he was convicted under a law including serious offenses. “The relevant documents in this case do not show that the previous conviction at issue necessarily was for a crime involving moral turpitude,” Breyer wrote.

The conservative-led Supreme Court’s actions resulted in a decision immigration experts will continue to monitor. Immigrants convicted of criminal acts may face more serious consequences in future cases.

The case takes place during a time when President Biden has rolled back many Trump-era immigration policies. The battle for the border will continue, but the Court has clearly indicated immigrants must be responsible for actions while in the country.

  1. now lets get the rest of the Illegals out of here on basically the same law, they all came here Illegally and have shown some document along the way that is ILLEGAL

  2. If true then we will have a near ending job with Biden opening the door on the border with thousands moving in and not all are from Mexico or spots in S America as Iran sends,as does China and any terrorists from most anyplace.

  3. He was subsequently convicted of a misdemeanor for attempting to commit the Nebraska crime labeled “criminal impersonation.” Pereida was sentenced to a fine of $100 and no jail time. Really ?? that’s it? Will he really be deported? I don’t think so! They all talk the talk but they don’t walk the walk

    1. may God bless our Supreme Court Justices and making righteous and just decisions when it comes to the constitution in regards to all decisions made on behalf of the American Constitution and the well being American people. for far too long, we have witnessed a great Injustice on our American soil against our American citizens from our civil liberties to our freedom of speech did the prosperity of the American family attacks on the family unit itself if we were such a racist country why then are so many immigrants trying to migrate to our rich and righteous soils. Illegal immigrants weather from Mexico the Middle East China South America Africa all should be held to the same legal accountability and if it means deportation for the safety of the American citizens since then so will be it. Many thanks and may God bless you again for calling it for what it is and not being bought and paid for by big Pharma big Tech Democratic entities and Satan himself

  4. Barack H. Obama used two forms of ID and got a job. Using someone else’s Social Security (federal crime) and a fraud/fake birth certificate the Kenyan born Obama became President. Will we DEPORT HIM?

  5. Was this an accident???? What are they going to do about the new invasion approved by the commiecrats since they’ve joined them????

  6. Fraud is fraud. He’s been in the U.S for 25 years, and still doesn’t have his own number, but must have known the fake number was against the law. Hadn’t he used it before to get a job?? If any of us was using fake I.D. or stolen Social Security number, the court would throw the book at us. His number must have come from all the China, fake identification cards mailed out prior to elections. They confiscated thousands of them, but apparently they’ve printed more. Something is missing in this case.
