Immigration Activists and Concerned Citizens,
The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) has incredible powers, although many see it as just one of the three branches of our federal government. With the wrong Justices, the SCOTUS can literally rewrite our U.S. Constitution and take rights and protections away from citizens. There is already one opening due to Justice Scalia passing away, and a very liberal President in January nominating a very liberal Justice to the SCOTUS would tip the current balance to a liberal SCOTUS. Actually our next President of the USA will likely have the opportunity to nominate three Justices to the SCOTUS, and this will affect our Supreme Court for the next three decades. With additional very liberal Justices, given what is going on today, our nation will become unrecognizable and may never recover.
We watched the current SCOTUS vote in a court case to require every citizen to purchase health care (nowhere in the U.S. Constitution), Obamacare, and then the SCOTUS proceeded in another court case to redefine a word, marriage, that had been understood without question since 1300. There are other concerns such as will a Jurist to the SCOTUS honestly interpret the law and be a strict constructionist or attempt to rewrite our Constitution. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (nominated to the Supreme Court by Bill Clinton in 1993) has caused another concern as she said we should use the laws of other nations to determine U.S. law. Also, Sharia law is creeping into our lower court system. Justice Elena Kagan (nominated to the Supreme Court by Barack Obama) has made similar comments as Ginsburg about international law having weight when interpreting our Constitution. The U.S. President also nominates numerous federal judges in lower courts.
A somewhat recent case in the SCOTUS challenging President Obama’s use of a large scale amnesty for illegal immigrants and attempting to rewrite existing immigration laws and usurp powers reserved for Congress was not defeated, but with a vote of 4 to 4, was sent back to a lower federal court. All of the Democrat appointees to the SCOTUS voted to allow powers Obama does not legally have. This ruling was especially scary given the case was really about the Separation of Powers between the President and the U.S. Congress as defined in our Constitution.
If Hillary Clinton were to be elected President she will likely have the opportunity to nominate three Justices to the SCOTUS, but she really only has to nominate one in order to change the balance of the current SCOTUS. A very liberal “President Hillary” with a very liberal SCOTUS can change and even overrule actions by the U.S. Congress. A “President Hillary” giving an unlawful amnesty with permission by a very liberal SCOTUS to 13+ million mostly poor and low-skilled illegal immigrants and allowing them to vote and bring all of their relatives to the USA…….they will vote for more government spending and more benefits and ever more immigration. Hillary has been caught saying she actually favors near open borders.
If Donald Trump were to be elected President, he has promised to nominate only strict constructionists to the SCOTUS and has given a list of candidates to prove his point. He has promised to enforce our immigration laws.
Should one be more concerned with which candidate for President will nominate the next U.S. Supreme Court Justices, or should one be more concerned with which Presidential candidate has the nicest “tone”?
