Justice Sotomayor Issues Scathing Dissent After Trump Wins SCOTUS Case

Donald Trump won a huge ruling on the Supreme Court last week for immigration, and it has the liberal justices up in arms.

Suddenly, Justice Sotomayor is worried about politics entering the judicial system, complaining that her fellow conservative justices are doing Trump’s dirty work for him.

The Case

The judgment that created the fury is centered around a new Trump administration policy of “public charge.”

The new directive means that immigrants coming into the country will now have to prove they are not going to rely on government entitlement programs once they enter the country.

This is one of the ways Trump is trying to lower the stress on our entitlement programs and has been very well received by conservatives.

When the new law was announced, liberals and Dems went ballistic and the new policy was shelved while it worked its way through the courts.

As predicted, it went before liberal judges, all of whom ruled against the policy.

When it made its way to the Supreme Court, it made it through on a vote of 5-4, with everyone voting along ideological lines.

After the ruling was made. Justice Sotomayor took on the task of writing the dissenting opinion and she went off.

She wrote, “Claiming one emergency after another, the Government has recently sought stays in an unprecedented number of cases.

“It is hard to say what is more troubling, that the Government would seek this extraordinary relief seemingly as a matter of course, or that the Court would grant it.”

The really hypocritical aspect of her comments is that at no point when ruling after ruling went against this administration in the lower courts because of an Obama or Clinton appointee, did Sotomayor say a peep.

We all know that when it comes to this administration, for the most part, the outcome of a case is predictable simply by looking at who appointed the judge.

I hate to break it to you, Justice Sotomayor, but politics infiltrated our judiciary a long time ago, but liberals always seemed to have the edge.

That, clearly, is no longer the case.

Additionally, I would tell her at this time, we probably have the fairest Supreme Court we have had in decades.

There are currently three “conservative” justices that have regularly crossed the ideological line in judgments, which is far more than we can say about the left side of the court.


  1. My, the hypocrisy of the Trotskys!!
    “Quote From Founder of La Raza: ‘We have got to eliminate the gringo. And what I mean is, if worse comes to worst, we have got to kill him’.Those are the words of the founder of La Raza, an organization which Judge Sonia Sotomayor was a member.”

  2. Sotomayor is the same “justice’ who strongly and publicly bridled when illegal aliens were called, well, illegal aliens. In other words, the US Immigration laws which describe an illegal entrant as an illegal alien is racist and just wrong. Libs, whether they be jurists or your vintage man-on-the-street libs everywhere, are mentally ill. Hate to have to say that, but I’ve eliminated all other reasonable explanations.

  3. Poor little whiner is scared about courts going for Trump? then maybe she should tell the left to stop running to the courts everytime Trump does something they dont like, like the little BI**HES they show themselves to be. She is just ticked that her side lost the case in a 7-2 decision. And I bet she is even more upset that the 9th US District Court just ruled that states CANT use tax monies for abortions or that the SCOTUS just ruled that the Democrats have NO legal right to Trumps Tax returns. Must absolutely suck to be a lefty right about now.

  4. Sotomayer has proven a long time ago that she doesn’t follow our Constitution! She’s a liberal loon that is nothing more than a Deep State plant on our highest court put there to try to destroy our laws and our freedoms!!!
