VICTORY FOR BORDER SECURITY

Father, may president Trump be guided with Your Biblical values. Continue to surround him with men and women who call on Your name.

In a victory for border security that will help the federal government regain control over the immigration process, the Supreme Court has upheld commonsense rules used by the Trump administration to effectively deter illegal immigrants from making false asylum claims.

The 7-2 ruling by the high court Thursday allows the Trump administration to continue doing what the executive branch is supposed to do: enforce the laws passed by Congress.

Vijayakumar Thuraissigiam was caught entering the U.S. illegally in 2017, just 25 yards inside the southern border. The Sri Lankan claimed asylum, saying that he had once been “abducted and severely beaten,” although he said he had no idea who had done it or why. . . .

The Supreme Court noted that in 1996 Congress had approved “a system for weeding out patently meritless [asylum] claims and expeditiously removing the aliens making such claims from the country.”

This expedited removal process limited the ability of those seeking asylum to petition federal courts to review decisions made by the Department of Homeland Security on the validity of their claims.

Claimants can, however, avoid the expedited removal process by demonstrating a “credible fear of persecution.” In that case, they are entitled to “full consideration” of their claim in a full-blown removal hearing presided over by a federal immigration judge. . . .

In Thuraissigiam’s case, a Department of Homeland Security asylum officer rejected his claim, which was based solely on his assertion that he had been beaten by unknown assailants. This is not a valid ground for receiving asylum. A supervising officer agreed to reject the asylum claim and an immigration judge affirmed that decision.

It wasn’t until Thuraissigiam’s lawyer filed a habeas corpus petition with a federal court that he started claiming he feared persecution based on his Tamil ethnicity and political views. The district court threw out his habeas corpus petition, complying with the federal immigration provision limiting its ability to review the claim. . . .

The Suspension Clause of Article I, Section 9 holds that the “Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it.” The Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment says that you cannot be “deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.”

But the Supreme Court disagreed and, once more, overturned the 9th Circuit’s holding. . . .

It’s important to recognize that illegal immigrants don’t have the same due process rights as citizens. For more than 100 years, the Supreme Court has held that the only due process to which illegal immigrants are entitled is what Congress gives them through federal immigration law. . . .

ven liberal Supreme Court Justices Stephen Breyer and Ruth Bader Ginsburg concurred in the judgment, although they limited their opinion just to the facts of this particular case. Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan dissented, saying that the courts should have the ability to review asylum decisions that are arbitrary and capricious or contrary to governing law.

The Supreme Court decision does not interfere with the ability of Congress to change our immigration laws, but makes clear that as long as the laws are on the books it is the job of the federal government to enforce them.

    shit. Look who killed her a black man an White woman lady. START LOOKING INTO THE ARMY KILLING YOUNG ADULTS WHO WANT TO SERVE OUR COUNTRY BUT GET KILLED IN A DISGUSTING WAY.

  2. He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you Except to be just, and to love [and to diligently practice] kindness (compassion), And to walk humbly with your God [setting aside any overblown sense of importance or self-righteousness]? Micha 6:8 Amplified version.

  3. Dear Lord please help us to protect our citizens. Too often too many people are allowed into this country and are criminals. We need law and order and not more crime. I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

  4. I know this has been shared already but as I have been up and praying on the wall this morning and then ran across this again I felt led to reshare it. Just as we’ve heard, Indianapolis Mayor is saying July 8th everyone will be required to wear a mask again when out. I know he gave an excuse as to why the 8th and not today! I call bull on this!! If the mask is needed on the 8th then they are needed now! Don’t get me started on these “masks”, they don’t protect you from the virus!!!! Anyway back to the main reason that I am sharing this, it’s all about the election and thereafter! People the Dems are getting ready to repeat the craziness with the quarantine, or they are going to try. Because they are trying to do whatever they can to stop President Trump from winning again. They are trying to usher in the One World Government so that there will be no more Conservatives or godliness in America. So that you and I will never again have a voice, a vote, or a say about anything. This is not the time to let fear push you into submission or to cower down and let them ruin America and the future of our children and grandchildren and greats. We need to ask ourselves, what would Jesus do? What does God expect us to do as Kingdom-minded people? We must know His Word, His voice, and His will!! Time to humbly repent and ask for forgiveness, to walk in humility and seek His face, and to begin to be a light for others who don’t know Him and His truth. It’s time to count the cost of being a follower of Jesus, to put on and keep on the whole armor of God and be ready for anything. After all, look at what they did to Jesus and His disciples!
