US Supreme Court Just Gave Trump The Green Light To Run His Xenophobic Policies
Donald Trump has been wanting to stop immigration into the country ever since he took office, and the U.S. Supreme Court is now allowing him to do just that.
On Wednesday, the U.S. Supreme Court allowed asylum restrictions by Trump’s administration to take effect, which will prevent most Central American migrants from seeking asylum at the U.S. border.
The top court stayed a decision by a lower court two days earlier that had blocked the restrictions, which require migrants seeking asylum in the United States to make their request in a country along their route.
Justice Sonia Sotomayor, dissenting from the Supreme Court’s decision, wrote that: “Once again the Executive Branch has issued a rule that seeks to upend longstanding practices regarding refugees who seek shelter from persecution.”
Trump praised the highest court in the country via Twitter:
“BIG United States Supreme Court WIN for the Border on Asylum!”
