It’s June, and that means that we’ll be getting a trickling out of various Supreme Court decisions as the month drags on. One such decision was released today and it’s going to have the open borders advocates seeing red.
The court ruled via a surprising (at least to the layman) unanimous vote that people who entered the country illegally can not abuse temporary protective status to later try to become permanent residents.
This is a necessary decision because once you reward illegal entry, you are throwing incentives out there for people to keep breaking our laws. That’s a lesson being learned the hard way by way of our current immigration crisis. While this certainly doesn’t close all the loopholes, it’s one that’s been routinely abused and doesn’t need to exist. Temporary protective status itself has become controversial precisely because it never seems to be temporary.
