U.S. top court to set guidelines for Trump treatment of non-citizens

Source: Reuters



By Lawrence Hurley | WASHINGTON

The U.S. Supreme Court will decide three cases in coming months that could help or hinder President Donald Trump's efforts to ramp up border security and accelerate deportations of those in the country illegally.

The three cases, which reached the court before Democratic President Barack Obama left office, all deal broadly with the degree to which non-citizens can assert rights under the U.S. Constitution. They come at a time when the court is one justice short and divided along ideological lines, with four conservatives and four liberals.

The justices will issue rulings before the end of June against the backdrop of high-profile litigation challenging the lawfulness of Trump's controversial travel ban on people traveling from seven predominantly Muslim countries.

The most pertinent of the three cases in terms of Republican Trump administration priorities involves whether immigrants in custody for deportation proceedings have the right to a hearing to request their release when their cases are not promptly adjudicated.

3. Obstruct, obstruct, obstruct.

The media better start finding all the shit he has done on the bench and in all actions as a lawyer.

7. Truth is he's most likely going to get that seat

The GOP will go nuclear and/or you can bet the farm that twitchy red state Dems will be voting "aye".

Best we can hope for is he's another Anthony Kennedy: will make some bad decisions but when push comes to shove tends to veer towards supporting and expanding civil liberties such as LGBT rights.

2. Is this a shot across the bow from the USSC?

Interesting timing to be sure.

4. Thank God President Obama's Team of good guys moved cases up towards SC last year.

Republicans were to busy colluding with Russians and spamming stolen files on their 24/7 propaganda tv station to notice.

5. ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL AND ENDOWED, ETC...

Only some clay-ethic conservatives believe the Constitution should only apply to people who carry the right paperwork--and often not them. Please, let the Court affirm universal human rights under the Constitution. In broad terms it wouldn't mean people who don't have a legal right to be here couldn't be deported, only that they be entitled to all constitutional protections for due process and civil rights and safety
