On Monday, the Supreme Court unanimously rejected an illegal immigrant’s attempt to twist immigration law and create a loophole that would allow thousands of illegal immigrants to become lawful permanent residents. Democratic senators and attorneys general advocated for this loophole, but a liberal justice wrote the opinion for a unanimous Court.
“Petitioner Jose Santos Sanchez entered this country unlawfully from El Salvador. Years later, because of unsafe living conditions in that country, the Government granted him Temporary Protected Status (TPS), entitling him to stay and work in the United States for as long as those conditions persist. Sanchez now wishes to become a lawful permanent resident (LPR) of the United States. The question here is whether the conferral of TPS enables him to obtain LPR status despite his unlawful entry. We hold that it does not,” Associate Justice Elena Kagan, an Obama appointee, wrote in the opinion.
In Sanchez v. Mayorkas, Kagan noted that U.S. immigration law, “applied according to its plain terms, prevents Sanchez from becoming an LPR. There is no dispute that Sanchez ‘entered the United States in the late 1990s unlawfully, without inspection.'”
Yet Democrats and immigration activists twist the law to argue that if an illegal immigrant obtains temporary protected status due to violence or bad conditions in his or her home country, he or she can be considered “admitted” for the purposes of obtaining LPR status...

The wise Latina acquired some wisdom for once? I just saw a pig fly !!
Maybe our side finally got up to speed on the backmail stuff... lol
Kind of unexpected from my pov.
Superlibs _not_ twisting the law to promote lib politics.
Obviously the court must be packed with at least 50 new Democrat-selected justices.
Yep, I think the liberals on the court realize they can only go so far.
Even she couldn’t misread or misinterpret a law written so clearly.
Will be made moot when Biden pardons all 25 million illegals (just in time to get registered for ‘22 elections).
We can attribute any knowledge gain as a direct result of The Honorable Clarance Thomas
The idea that the US must allow immigration from anyone claiming “bad conditions” in their home country is simply insane and unsustainable.
9-0. Wow. It looks like Biden will now have to pack the Court with at least 10 new justices.
Another unanimous decision (written by Kagan, no less) on a case that many would have predicted to likely split among party/ideological lines. It sure feels like the Court is sending a not-too-subtle message.
Perhaps all 9 have realized that the politization of the court has went too far with the threat to pack the court.
On the other hand, they may just be saying, they can be political, but the Senators should not infringe on their turf.
We will see.
I agree that in some respect, the threats made directly to the Court by the Senate and Speaker have some weight in this and the other 9-0 decisions.
