The Supreme Court unanimously resurrected a federal law struck down by an appeals court that made it a felony to encourage people to come to or stay illegally in the United States.

Section 1324 of the federal Immigration and Nationality Act makes it a felony punishable by up to five years imprisonment for anyone who encourages or induces an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law. The period behind bars doubles if he or she acted for the purpose of commercial advantage or private financial gain.
Doesn't this make it a FELONY to be an Elected Official in Every Sanctuary State, County and City in America?? Shouldn't US Attorneys be Ramping up for Mass Prosecutions now??
If illegal immigrants can ignore our laws and go anywhere they want to......why can’t we?
...unanimously resurrected a federal law struck down by an appeals court that made it a felony to encourage people to come to or stay illegally...
That’s exactly it, if fraudulently documented foreigners can ignore all the laws, so can we.
The social contract is broken.
This is kind of a crazy law. We’re there any attempted prosecutions?
And don’t forget those “activists” are getting paid with our tax money. We are screwed both ways.
I believe that same immigration laws include the possibility of the death penalty for anyone giving aid to an illegal alien who commits murder.
Lawyers are not exempt. In fact, lawyers can retroactively be indicted for actively encouraging illegal aliens.
The Supremes threw out the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals decision based upon the 9th CCA judges acting as plaintiffs instead of as judges. No wonder it was unanimous!
Not to mention a whole bunch of non-profits
There's a whole host of agencies and beaurocrats who are felons. Everything from SSA, Dept of Ed, chambers of commerce, and most definitely "sanctuary states."
all those scrotus wimmin be racis
i would interpret all sanctuary cities to be felonies
I agree to a point. Actually, we can ignore any law we want. We have to be willing to assert our beliefs. That goes from double parking to open combat with anyone. What and where we draw our lines at is an individuals choice. The rule of law only works if everyone follows it and its enforced equally. Laws are passed by legislative bodies, not governors. An edict isnt law, constitutional or otherwise. It brings to mind Dont Tread On Me. Thats my 2 cents worth any how.
However, need to view it in the context of trying to bringing a loaded super tanker to a stop...
The communist momentum may require a bunch of torpedoes to actually “stop”...
How bad do you have to screw up for Sotomayor and Ginsburg to rule against you?
US v Ndiaye
Edwards v Prime Inc
The rats do it all the time
“I would interpret all sanctuary cities to be felonies”
According to that law it would be a open and shut case.
