SUPREMES BACK TRUMP: Supreme Court Sides with White House on New Asylum Rules

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.12.19

The United States Supreme Court sided with the Trump administration Wednesday; allowing the White House to impose new restrictions on asylum applicants as more legal cases are decided in the lower courts.

“The Supreme Court on Wednesday allowed the Trump administration to bar most Central American migrants from seeking asylum in the United States, while the legal fight plays out in the courts,” reports the New York Times.

The Supreme Court, in a brief, unsigned order, said the administration may enforce new rules that generally forbid asylum applications from migrants who have traveled through another country on their way to the United States without being denied asylum in that country.

The vote was 7-2, with liberal Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissenting the decision, writing “Once again, the Executive Branch has issued a rule that seeks to upend longstanding practices regarding refugees who seek shelter from persecution.”

The case will likely return to the Supreme Court for a final decision later this year.

BREAKING NEWS: Supreme Court Allows White House to Use Military Funds for NEW BORDER WALL

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.26.19

The Supreme Court ruled Friday that the Trump administration can use Pentagon funding to complete new sections of border wall along the US-Mexico border.

“The court’s five conservative justices gave the administration the greenlight to begin work on four contracts it has awarded using Defense Department money. Funding for the projects had been frozen by lower courts. The court’s four liberal justices wouldn’t have allowed construction to start,” reports the Associated Press.

“The justices’ decision to lift the freeze on the money allows Trump to make progress on a major 2016 campaign promise heading into his race for a second term,” adds the website.

“Wow! Big VICTORY on the Wall. The United States Supreme Court overturns lower court injunction, allows Southern Border Wall to proceed. Big WIN for Border Security and the Rule of Law!” tweeted the President.
