Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, April 17, 2018

The Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled that part of a federal law that makes it easier to deport immigrants convicted of crimes is too vague. The 5-4 ruling handed the Trump administration a loss on a signature issue. Justice Neil Gorsuch, who was appointed by President Donald Trump, joined the court's more liberal justices to cast the deciding vote.

I wonder if Pres Trump is going to start attacking Associate Justice Gorsuch via Twitter?

He'll call him a Mexican.

This is a big decision. It impacts criminal lawyers as much as it does immigration lawyers. Kudos to the SCOTUS for getting this right.

Gorsuch Screws Trump

Flight Risk must be used to this sort of thing by now.

Laws that are so vaguely worded that it makes enforcement subjective need to be rewritten.

Our laws are broken if we can't deport a criminal who is in the country illegally.

There's no rational reason to protect them. There's no legal reason to protect them either.

I'm sorry but what does that possibly have to do with this decision?

#9 His point is why are we even creating laws that affect those who don't abide by them and choose not to be citizens of this country?

Tell me about it. Look at this piece of ------------: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

That's beyond vaguely worded. That's grammatical nonsense.

@#6 ... Laws that are so vaguely worded that it makes enforcement subjective ...

Law enforcement often likes, and takes advantage of, the vagueness. To the point I oft wonder if the vagueness is intentional.

We can't?

This particular case seems to be about a Philippine man who legally came to America at age 13 in 1992, who was convicted of burglary in 2017.

I'd wager an illegal immigrant would be dealt with differently.

I'm pretty sure this is the crux of all gun control debates.

If that's the case, why have laws against murder? Some people are just going to murder anyway! See how ridiculous the argument is?

- who legally came to America at age 13

I'll admit I missed that.

Especially when you consider that the 2nd ammendment was put into the constitution as an inducement to the "slave states" to ratify the document not the "free states."

It's okay. Gorsuch will get the next one in Trump's favor.

Good on you for noticing.

This case isn't as much about striking down deportation laws as it is about Gorsuch not being a party line voter.

Which. I appreciate.
