Two years as a judge.

This person is not qualified to be on the SCOTUS, and this nomination is one big Stigginit.

BeesNuts: Smackledorfer: Kirablue42: In her whopping 40-page dissent in that case, she laid out why the US has the right to block people who it deems likely to become dependent on public assistance in the future - even if they have never used public assistance in the past.

Meet the RACIST AS HELL "pre-crime" handmaiden.

Meh.

1. Any country should be able to unilaterally decide who can become a citizen.

2. If they sign onto any international agreements those should have binding power to some extent.

3. Denying migrants based on the expectation they may need assistance is stupid. But I do think we should have that right.

If the US cannot determine who can become a lapr or citizen, who should be able to? India? China? Honduras? The UK?

The ONLY reasonable answer is us, via our executive and legislative branches as elected by the people.

Sure, we technically have the "right" in international law.

It's also unamerican horseshiat and I stand against it.

The plaque doesn't say "Bring me your means-tested 95th percentile citizens, yearning to pay lower taxes", after all.


I don't disagree with you.

My point was just that unless a protected class, treaty, or existing legislation precludes a change to immigration, the correct judicial ruling is to let the administration be as benevolent or terrible as the American people voted for.

I can't defend DACA and prosecutorial discretion for 8 years and turn around and say Trump's executive branch should be blocked by the courts based not in law, but in the whim of the courts.

Of course, if we didn't have a broken senate design and horrendous gerrymandering, this wouldn't even come up.

Yes, there is a method for this, it's called a constitutional amendment.

Which would sadly backfire because we have a country based on states and not population.

:(
