Even the liberal Supreme Court Justices oppose the radical Left’s immigration agenda which seeks to give illegal immigrants “papers” or green cards in order to establish permanent residency in the United States.
On Monday, US Supreme Court Justices ruled unanimously in a 9-0 vote that illegal immigrants who obtained Temporary Protected Status are not entitled to Legal Permanent Residency.
“The question here is whether the conferral of TPS enables him to obtain LPR [Legal Permanent Residency] status despite his unlawful entry. We hold that it does not,” Justice Elena Kagan wrote in the unanimous opinion.
The court upheld a decision by a lower court ruling on a case, Sanchez v. Mayorkas, where two El Salvadoran immigrants sought permanent residency after living in the U.S. for over 20 years with TPS.
Jose Sanchez and Sonia Gonzalez fled El Salvador using an earthquake that hit the country as an excuse to receive TPS after illegally entering the United States, the Washington Examiner reported.
“The TPS program gives foreign nationals nonimmigrant status, but it does not admit them,” Kagan said in the opinion. “So the conferral of TPS does not make an unlawful entrant (like Sanchez) eligible.”
This sets an important precedent that any illegal immigrant with TPS will be allowed to reside in the United States, however they will not be eligible to obtain permanent legal residency under a green card or citizenship.
The Decision that it is unconstitutional to grant residency to illegal immigrants who take advantage of unsecured borders in hopes of one day becoming a resident after living here long enough should send a clear message to those surging the U.S. border today on false hope that they will be rewarded for their trek.
Like Kamala Harris said to Guatemalans during a visit to the country on Monday, “Do not come.”
“We will discourage illegal migration,” she continued.
Despite their previous message to Central American that the US border would be open under the Biden administration, they have now changed their tune after allowing tens of thousands of undocumented migrants to flood our border.
And finally, the Supreme Court has weighed in on the matter to discourage the idea that illegal immigrants are somehow entitled to citizenship, regardless of the reason they came here.
