Court allows U.S. to resume expelling unaccompanied children


A three-member panel of circuit judges gave U.S. border officials permission on Friday to use a Trump-era emergency policy to swiftly expel unaccompanied migrant children from American soil without a court hearing or an asylum interview.

Judges Gregory Katsas, Neomi Rao and Justin Walker of the U.S. Circuit Court in Washington, D.C. paused a lower court order that had blocked the government from expelling children apprehended along U.S. borders without their parents or legal guardians. All three judges were appointed by former President Trump.

Supreme Court strikes down case law that allowed Texas governor to ban abortions during pandemic

San Antonio Current

The U.S. Supreme Court handed a win to abortion-rights groups Monday, eliminating lower court rulings that upheld Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's ban on nearly all abortions during the early stages of the pandemic.

Abbott, a Republican, mandated a statewide stop to "nonessential" medical procedures in March of last year, saying the pause was needed to preserve medical resources during the health crisis. However, Planned Parenthood and other reproductive health groups argued that abortions are rarely performed at hospitals and seldom require extensive personal protective equipment.

The high court's Monday ruling wiped out a pair rulings from the lower U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals that sided with the Texas GOP on the ban.

While Abbott's order ended during the summer, he asked Supreme Court to permit the lower court rulings to remain in place, presumably as legal cover for future abortion restrictions.

In a statement supplied to NBC News, Planned Parenthood said it fought Abbott's procedural move because it wanted to "make sure bad case law was wiped from the books."

The health group, in conjunction with the Center for Reproductive Rights and the Lawyering Project, also called the governor's ban "a transparent attempt to chip away at access to reproductive health care by exploiting a public health crisis."

Whether they want to admit it or not, they all enabled the events of today

I've never seen such a sad bunch of sore losers! They lose one election, and they storm the capitol.

Let's not act like this ridiculous act of lunacy was out of nowhere. You deplorable motherfuckers enabled this over years and years.

Your hate speeches; calling Democrats "evil"; saying that Democrats are the end of America as we know it; your hate rallies; ALL OF IT is the reason we find ourselves with people feeling so emboldened as to terrorize the capitol building, and the staff and members of congress inside.

Your lionizing that orange shit stain that doesn't deserve to sit in the Oval Office and your years of propaganda before that is why these people feel like they can just take over the capitol building. You may go to bed telling yourself that you're motivating your base when what you've really been doing is inciting and enabling riots and terror.

You've told them through the years that they can. You've shown them with your actions that there is no consequences for them "taking back their power" from Democrats. They've watch you raise a demagogue to the top and let him do whatever he wants with no consequences. Now, you've made them believe they can do the same.

You've been crying wolf and yelling "FIRE!" in crowded buildings. All that led to Trump. He is that wolf and he is that fire.

Did Biden ever make his list of potential SCOTUS nominees public?

I remember they were going to but I don't recall them ever making it public.
