Brett Kavanaugh is in as Supreme Court Justice.
And he’s already working to make America a better – and safer – place.
During a Supreme Court argument this week, Kavanaugh faced off against Neil M. Gorsuch and some lawyers over a very important topic:
How long after an immigrant commits a crime can the government detain that person?
In other words, there’s a 1996 law that says the federal law requires detention of immigrants who committed a crime in the U.S.
And one lawyer, Zachary D. Tripp, agrees with that rule:
“Basically, at the end of the day, Congress’s answer was enough is enough.
If you’re an alien, you come here, you commit one of these crimes, you’ve effectively forfeited whatever right you have to remain at large in the community.”
The law says the feds can “take into custody any alien” convicted of crimes, serious or minor. This is after the alien is released.
Many will complain that this is too harsh, because it means if you overstayed your visa or were caught with marijuana, you can still be detained years after it happened.
But Kavanaugh doesn’t think it’s too harsh at all.
He supports the 1996 law, saying it puts no time limits on those detentions:
“That raises a real question for me whether we should be superimposing a time limit into the statute when Congress, at least as I read it, did not itself do so.“
That’s right, NO time limit. If you come to this country and break the law, authorities can detain you after you’re freed … for as long as you’re alive.
This strict, no-nonsense policy needs to stay in place.
We need to stop encouraging people to come here and commit crimes, and judges like Kavanaugh understand this!
Do you support this law?
And do you support new Justice Brett Kavanaugh and his hard-line stance against immigrant criminal activity?
