President Trump just scored another win with the Supreme Court. I've completely lost count at how many times the Supreme Court has sided with him.
Believe it or not, even Ruth Bader-Ginsburg took the President's side on a recent decision concerning his tax returns and she hates him more than anyone.
Once again, the highest court in the land determined that it is allowable for the Trump administration to begin enforcing new limits on immigrants who are more likely to be dependent on government assistance programs. This will help combat the immigration problem that we're having at the Southern Border, as will the wall.
According to NBC,
The court voted 5-4. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan said they would have left a lower court ruling in place that blocked enforcement while a legal challenge works its way through the courts.
The Department of Homeland Security announced in August that it would expand the definition of "public charge," to be applied to people whose immigration to the United States could be denied because of a concern that they would primarily depend on the government for their income.
In the past, that was largely based on an assessment that an immigrant would be dependent upon cash benefits. But the Trump administration proposed to broaden the definition to include noncash benefits, such as Medicaid, supplemental nutrition and federal housing assistance.
Anyone who would be likely to require that broader range of help for more than 12 months in any three-year period would be swept into the expanded definition.
Forbes reported that immigration analysts expect implementation of the public charge rule to be ruthless. An applicant would be denied permanent residence if a consular officer or immigration adjudicator, in effect, issues a prediction that an individual might use certain benefits for 12 months within a future 36-month period. U.S. District Judge George Daniels observed there is no precedent for this type of definition in the history of U.S. law.
The Migration Policy Institute concludes, “Nearly half of the U.S. noncitizen population could be at risk of a public-charge determination – up from the current 3%.” The technology startup Boundless estimates up to 200,000 young married couples could be at risk of not qualifying for a spousal green card under the regulation.
