Supreme Court rules that asylum-seekers are not entitled to habeas corpus

After dealing two massive blows to Donald Trump’s agenda last week, the Supreme Court finally delivered an unexpected win to the president on Thursday.

The SCOTUS ruled in resounding 7-2 decision that the Trump administration can legally deport illegal immigrants making asylum claims without allowing them to take their case before a federal judge. 

Fox News reported:

The Supreme Court ruled Thursday for the Trump administration in a key immigration case, determining that a federal law limiting an asylum applicant’s ability to appeal a determination that he lacked a credible fear of persecution from his home country does not violate the Constitution.

The ruling means the administration can deport some people seeking asylum without allowing them to make their case to a federal judge. The 7-2 ruling applies to those who fail their initial asylum screenings, making them eligible for quick deportation.

The decision was handed down in a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union, which represented a Sri Lankan asylum-seeker that was arrested after illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border in California.

At the time, he told Customs and Border Protection that he was afraid of returning to his home country because he had been kidnapped and tortured by government intelligence officials just before fleeing to the US.

The CBP decided that he did not provide sufficient evidence of credible fear for his life. According to the Washington Examiner, “U.S. policy states that asylum-seekers must prove their lives are at risk due to race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political affiliation.”

The ACLU argued that the controversial expedited removal process “provides drastically truncated administrative procedures, and virtually no judicial review of purely legal claims, and even of claims that the removal would violate the Constitution.”

Justice Sonia Sotomayor and Justice Elena Kagan were the only dissents in the decision affirming the Trump administration’s ability to rapidly deport asylum-seekers.

According to Fox News, “the ruling means the administration can deport some people seeking asylum without allowing them to make their case to a federal judge. The 7-2 ruling applies to those who fail their initial asylum screenings, making them eligible for quick deportation.”

Just return him to Mexico. He still wouldn’t be in Sri Lanka so he should have all the asylum he needs when he finds a new home.

AS MORE AND MORE ILLEGALS POURED OVER THE BORDER, THEY KNEW IT WAS AN ILLEGAL ENTRY,, HOWEVER, SOME DID ADMIT THAT THEY HAD BEEN COACHED TO SAY HOW THEY HAD BEEN TORTURED AND ABUSED TO MAKE IT AN EASY ENTRY. WE HAVE IMMIGRATION LAWS FOR A REASON,, IT IS WAY PAST TIME TO ENFORCE THOSE LAWS .

about time the justice system found out that the constitution and our rights are based on citizenship, no foreign national has a constitutional right to enter our sovereign nation, infact it is a federal crime to aid or abett any illegal alien to reside or work in these United states. now enforce that law as well

If they came into this country illegally that proves that they don’t have any respect for our laws, so deport them as fast as they come in, but make sure that all the identity markers are on file, such as DNA, Fingerprints, and currant photos so if they try to sneak back they are easy to identify.

There are approximately 20 million illegal immigrant in the United States not counting DACA. These people came to the United States knowing their law breaking could bring a deportation. Most of these people live on tax dollars for all types of welfare; food stamps, housing , medical and education. It is costing taxpayers approximately $3 billion dollars a year as a minimum.

Name any country in the world that would not jail or immediately deport illegal immigrants? Answer, there is no none!. The United States must do the same.

Dr. Roger L. Meyer (@guest_1013795)

This is long overdue. The illegal invaders have been having a field day at the tax payer’s expense for too many decades under the Democrat and almost Democrat administrations of the past 20+ years.
This ruling will, at least, make some of them have to prove SOMETHING, much to the Democrats dissapointment.

In order to achieve this goal, we need to have both the Congress and Senate to support The President.
We must do more to get a landslide in November

It’s to late for Democrats and Republicans to hash things out ! Many of countries have decided to divide their countries time to divide the U S A 50% for Democrats And 50% for Republicans it’s the only way civil rest would ever happen . Done !

The only reason the demon(crats) want the illegals here, is just for the votes! They have already given them drivers licenses, and no telling what else. If they don’t win the election, they won’t do anything for them, just like they have done nothing for them in the last 30 some odd years!!

I hope after re-election that TRUMP gets them ALL out. They cost us almost $300billion a year. They are ILLEGAL– they have broken our laws. They DO NOT belong in America. GET OUT YOU ILLEGALS. We don’t want you here. You did not come in right and are sucking the life blood out of America.

I’m tired of going anywhere and listening to them talking Mexican and nót American. Our country is going through so MUCH at this tíme, we need to get rid of one of most important thing (really the second important thing) as our history of the blacks need tó be no. 1. We are going ahead with BLM first, but get rid of the illgals imagrents ànd along the way work along with BLM matters along the way.

Why is it that Black Lives matters…….What in the heck is wrong with ALL lives matter! People and ONLY people who come here legally are the ONLY PEOPLE who should be here. We are not working our butt off to support anyone but OUR own family, not all the freeloaders coming here to be supported, clothed, housed, fed, and medically taken care….it is not right, EVER!

Wake up America before it’s too late! Look what the democratic party, ( communist party ) is doing to our cities and country right this very minute! Is this what you want? If they get elected,there will be a civil war that will make the first one seem like play day. It well have to be because the communists will come and try to take everything you own…..starting with your guns. Remember…..you can’t stand up to a tyrannical , communist government if the people don’t have guns. Please safe thiscountry and get everyone you know to vote for Donald J Trump.

Now is the time to either cancel or rewrite the DACA into a true legal situation. Each and every person who has been classified as a DACA, should immediately enter our IMMIGRATION system, thereby upon meeting all requirements of becoming a NATURALIZED CITIZEN, which upon they have legally chosen to become a Citizen of these United States of America. Then they will have earned the right to be one of our neighbors, and openly accepted into our Communities as an American. They will then no longer be viewed as an ILLEGAL. Come on CONGRESS do your freaking JOB that you were elected for.
