Well, whattaya know? CJ Roberts sided with the 4 liberals to smack Trump down on asylum



Supreme Court Wonít Revive Trump Policy Limiting Asylum

The Supreme Court on Friday refused to revive a Trump administration initiative barring migrants who enter the country illegally from seeking asylum.

The court was closely divided, with Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. joining the four-member liberal wing in turning down the administrationís request for a stay of a trial judgeís order blocking the program.

The courtís brief order gave no reasons for its action. Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel A. Alito Jr., Neil M. Gorsuch and Brett M. Kavanaugh said they would have granted the stay.

In a proclamation issued on Nov. 9, President Trump barred migrants from applying for asylum unless they made the request at a legal checkpoint. Only those applying at a port of entry would be eligible, Mr. Trump said, invoking what he said were his national security powers to protect the nationís borders.

I have a feeling this won't be the last time. Roberts doesn't want his legacy to be too closely tied with Kavanaugh.

2. I think Roberts will look for opportunities to be in a majority that doesn't include Kavanaugh

 

Which will mean finding ways to align with Ginsberg, Sotomayor, Kagan and Breyer.

7. He's just afraid to rock the boat

He is a student of of history and knows how the political winds are blowing. He knows we will have full control in a few years and his legacy is dependent on our not stacking the court. When FDR proposed it, the supreme court stopped overturning his policies. Roberts is thinking ahead and not rocking the boat to try and not give us an excuse to make him irrelevant
