A good day in the courts

#1 Post by BackInTex » Mon Mar 04, 2024 2:20 pm

Supreme court, 9-0, vs Colorado and the TDS crowd.

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals late Saturday reversed a lower court’s ruling that halted a new state law allowing Texas police to arrest people suspected of crossing the Texas-Mexico border illegally.

A good day for demoracy loving and USA loving citizens, including legal immigrants. Not so much for others.
..what country can preserve it’s liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? let them take arms.
~~ Thomas Jefferson

War is where the government tells you who the bad guy is.
Revolution is when you decide that for yourself.

The Supreme Court (through Justice Alito) has stayed the Fifth Circuit's ruling. Given that this is Justice Alito's position, I suspect the full Court won't be particularly sympathetic to a state's efforts to make federal policy.

And to repeat myself, the Court completely avoided the issue of whether Donny engaged in insurrection. Its holding was merely that a state can't remove him from its ballot. The majority also stated in dicta that only Congress can make that decision, but because it's dicta, the opinion's statement to that effect aren't controlling. --Bob

booby, maybe at some point in your life, you could do some contemplation.
Here is a section of Barrett's opinion that I think is especially relevant to people like you. Not that you will take any heed. You are driven by your intense, irrational partisanship and TDS.
The Court has settled a politically charged issue
in the volatile season of a Presidential election. Particularly in this circumstance, writings on the Court should
turn the national temperature down, not up. For present
purposes, our differences are far less important than our
unanimity: All nine Justices agree on the outcome of this
case. That is the message Americans should take home.
THERE WAS NO INSURRECTION, booby.

How does this in any way even imply that she declared it not an insurrection? All nine justices agree that Colorado, or any other state, cannot delete anyone from the ballot. Period. There is no judgment as to whether it was or wasn't an insurrection.
You live and learn. Or at least you live. - Douglas Adams
