[Ed. – Racist! He’s dissing an Hispanic. What’s that? He’s of Hispanic heritage himself? Er … never mind.]
During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday, Republican Sen. Ted Cruz (TX) compared left-leaning Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor to an “arsonist” and turned her complaint against her fellow justices on its head.
On Friday night, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in favor of the Trump administration’s request for an emergency stay on a lower court’s nationwide injunction against its “public charge” rule — which bans non-citizens from receiving a green card if the government believes those non-citizens would rely on public assistance — while the administration appeals the injunction.
In her dissenting opinion on the ruling, Sotomayor attacked the five justices on the court who ruled in favor of the Trump administration. The justices, Sotomayor strongly suggested in the scathing dissent, have demonstrated bias for the Trump administration rather than a commitment to upholding the Constitution.
