Joe Biden continues to throw all caution to the wind when it comes to his reckless open borders policies.
Fortunately, with three Donald Trump picks on the Supreme Court, there seems to be a few ways to stop Biden’s outrageous plans.
And now, Joe Biden’s amnesty plan just got hit with a blow in this recent Supreme Court ruling.
In a 5-3 decision, the Supreme Court ruled that illegal aliens bear the burden of proof when canceling their deportations.
The case at hand was that of illegal alien Clemente Pereida, who was arrested and convicted for using a fake social security number.
According to the Immigration and Nationality Act, illegals can block their deportation if the crime does not involve “moral turpitude,” which means it was a crime that did not gravely violate the accepted standard of the community (i.e., murder, abuse, drug crimes, etc.).
The Blaze reported, “In this case, while his deportation proceedings were already underway, Pereida was convicted in Nebraska of using a fake Social Security card in order to obtain employment, a crime involving moral turpitude, and so the immigration judge ruled he was ineligible to seek cancelation. However, the specific Nebraska statute that Pereida violated listed several offenses, one of which – operating a business without a license – did not involve moral turpitude.”
Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote for the majority, and he said, “The Immigration and Nationality Act expressly requires individuals seeking relief from lawful removal orders to prove all aspects of their eligibility. That includes proving they do not stand convicted of a disqualifying criminal offense.”
Gorsuch was joined in the majority by Chief Justice John Roberts, Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Brett Kavanaugh – Amy Coney Barrett recused herself because she was not on the court when it heard oral arguments.
The Immigration and Nationality Act states that it is up to the illegal aliens to prove their crime did not involve moral turpitude, unlike in a typical criminal case with American citizens where the burden of proof lies with the prosecution.
While seemingly a small victory, this ruling is a blow to Joe Biden’s open borders agenda.
