Absolutely shameful ruling from C.J. John Roberts and woman justice Amy Coney Barrett
I warned you.
From the New York Times on the Courts moronic ruling this week, ORDERING THE BORDER OPEN IN DEFIANCE OF FEDERAL LAW, courtesy of the three liberals on the Court, plus Roberts and Coney Barrett:
[S]ince 2021, Mr. Abbott, a third-term Republican [governor of Texas], has mounted a multibillion-dollar campaign to impose stringent measures at the border to deter migrants.
I love the way the NYTimes refers to Governor Abbott's immigration policies as "stringent," rejecting the more precise term "consistent with federal law."
In lifting an appeals court ruling that had generally prohibited the administration from removing the wire while the court considers the case, the justices gave no reasons, which is typical when they act on emergency applications. Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and Justice Amy Coney Barrett joined the court’s three liberal members to form a majority.
[F]ederal officials using bolt cutters and forklifts had destroyed parts of the barrier for no reason other than to allow migrants to enter.
Everyone yelled at me when I tried to warn you about Roberts —

Finally, let’s ponder the fact that Roberts has gone through 50 years on this planet without ever saying anything controversial. That’s just unnatural. By contrast, I held out for three months, tops, before dropping my first rhetorical bombshell, which I think was about Agnew.

And Amy Coney Barrett:

Much like being a police chief in modern America, apparently the No. 1 qualification for this job is: being a woman. I don’t know when my party signed onto identity politics, but I’m not happy about it either. At least we didn’t end up with America’s leading “Karen,” Kamala Harris. …
Maybe we should ease up on the Papists for awhile and try appointing a few Protestants to the Court.
