Brett Kavanaugh is quickly showing America why President Trump nominated him for the Supreme Court.
And Justice Kavanaugh just delivered President Trump a huge victory at the court.
This ruling will go down as one of the most devastating defeats for the far left.
President Trump’s nomination for Justice Brett Kavanaugh to fill the Supreme Court vacancy of outgoing Justice Anthony Kennedy last year became one of the largest stories of 2018.
The Supreme Court seat was fought over endlessly between Republicans and Democrats, with liberal Senators like Dianne Feinstein working day and night to derail the confirmation of President Trump’s second Supreme Court nominee with the hopes of keeping the seat open until 2020.
In the end, Democrats were defeated and Brett Kavanaugh became confirmed as President Trump’s second Supreme Court appointment last October.
Since then, Kavanaugh has proven to be among President Trump’s finest judicial appointments.
And this latest case only goes to show exactly why the far left worked so tirelessly to deny him a seat on the Supreme Court.
The Washington Examiner has the story:
“The Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled in favor of the Trump administration by deciding federal officials can detain immigrants at any time for possible deportation after they have served their time in the U.S. for other crimes.”
The decision, by a slim 5-4 ruling, overturned a ruling from the notoriously liberal 9th Circuit Court that federal immigration officials had to immediately detain and deport an illegal immigrant who had been released from prison for serving other crimes.
The new Supreme Court ruling gives federal law enforcement the ability to detain and deport any illegal immigrant who had been released from prison for another crime at any time.
As expected, the four Justices who side with the left on nearly every issue, Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan, sided with the 9th Circuit Court.
Meanwhile, Justice Brett Kavanaugh was joined by the other four conservative-leaning justices John Roberts, Clarence Thomas, and Neil Gorsuch, in overturning the lower court’s ruling.
Justice Alito wrote in the prevailing opinion that in the past, the court has “held time and time again, an official’s crucial duties are better carried out late than never.”
“He also rejected the argument from lawyers representing the immigrants involved in the case that they are subject to mandatory detention only if they are arrested ‘on the day he walks out of jail,’ giving the example that state and local officials ‘sometimes rebuff the government’s request that they give notice when a criminal alien will be released,’” adds the Washington Examiner.
The focus of the case centered upon two immigrants, Mony Preap and Bassam Yusuf Khoury, who were legally residing in the United States before being convicted of crimes and sent to prison. Years later, immigration officials sought to deport them.
The two challenged the deportation orders and won a ruling with the ultra-liberal 9th Circuit Court in 2016, who argued that the phrase “when the alien is released” under current federal law, “conveys immediacy”.
However, the Trump administration appealed the ruling and the Supreme Court ended up siding with them.
Had Hillary Clinton won the presidential election, it is extremely likely that this ruling would have gone the other way.
