The Supreme Court has dealt Republicans and conservatives a significant blow.
At the same time, the court’s decision is going to put additional strain on the American taxpayer.
The court denied a request by Republican state officials to keep Donald Trump’s “public charge” immigration rule in effect.
Let Them Pay
A total of 14 GOP Attorneys General led by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton were hoping the court would give them some relief.
Trump’s order ensured that only migrants that could support themselves would be considered for permanent residency.
It made all migrants who are considered to be “public charges” ineligible for consideration.
This was all part of Trump’s push to have contributors accepted rather than freeloaders that were just going to put more of a strain on the taxpayer.
Even though the court refused the petition, Chief Justice Roberts did hit the Biden administration for the methods it has used to end certain Trump policies, saying that Biden’s tactics raised a “host of important questions.”
Trump was trying to rid the immigration system of individuals who were immediately going to start to burden taxpayers, but Joe Biden redefined some terms to open the system up to more migrants that would need public assistance when entering the country.
Under Biden’s definition, only migrants would be “mostly dependent” on government assistance would be considered public charges, considerably narrower than the Trump definition.
The more narrow definition of public charge by Biden will add a considerable amount to the cost of immigration in this country to the American taxpayer.
And, let’s not forget, Biden just instituted another rule that will enable another 30,000 migrants per month to be paroled in this country arriving from four specific countries.
Most Republicans consider this to be smoke and mirrors as a way for Biden to lower the number of illegal encounters without actually doing anything to prevent the massive surge of migrants into this country during his administration.
