The Supreme Court dealt Trump a defeat that sparked this jaw-dropping reaction
June marks the time of year when the Supreme Court hands down its most controversial opinions.
This year it’s been all bad news for President Trump.
And now the Supreme Court dealt Trump a defeat that sparked this jaw-dropping reaction.
Just days after Chief Justice John Roberts and Neil Gorsuch stabbed conservatives in the back in ruling that homosexuals and transgenders should receive special rights, the court pulled another double cross.
Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the court’s four liberals to block the Trump administration from ending Barack Obama’s executive amnesty program for children of illegal aliens.
Obama imposed the amnesty program via executive memorandum and Trump got rid of it in the same manner.
Roberts balked and claimed that Obama’s executive action was constitutional but Trump’s was not by calling the administration’s reasoning “arbitrary and capricious.”
“We do not decide whether DACA or its rescission are sound policies,“ Roberts argued. “We address only whether the agency complied with the procedural requirement that it provide a reasoned explanation for its action. Here the agency failed to consider the conspicuous issues of whether to retain forbearance and what if anything to do about the hardship to DACA recipients.”
Clarence Thomas shredded this ridiculous reasoning.
“DACA is substantively unlawful. This conclusion should begin and end our review . . . No additional policy justifications or considerations are necessary. And, the majority’s contrary holding . . . has no basis in law,” Justice Thomas wrote.
President Trump reacted angrily saying the decision proved that America needed new justices on the Supreme Court who would protect the rule of law and actually stand for the Constitution.
“The recent Supreme Court decisions, not only on DACA, Sanctuary Cities, Census, and others, tell you only one thing, we need NEW JUSTICES of the Supreme Court. If the Radical Left Democrats assume power, your Second Amendment, Right to Life, Secure Borders, and Religious Liberty, among many other things, are OVER and GONE!”
