- Even WSJ’s ‘anti-trump’ columnist’ gets it
Daniel Henninger is one of the many ‘anti-Trump’ pundits at the Wall Street Journal…some more so than others…he perhaps less so
In the column linked to and excerpted below, despite his affinity for “open Borders”, or at least low-wage illegal immigrants, Henninger boldly identifies SCOTUS as villain
The Court-Ordered Caravan Deluge
The anti-Trump ‘resistance’ includes judges making the border mess worse.
And in particular it’s the Chief Justice…”FC” (“Faux Conservative”), the mendacious John Roberts
Henninger, of course, does not go so far as to credit President Trump for much of anything positive offering up such snideness as: “If as reported, Mr. Trump is giving White House adviser Stephen Miller full control of immigration policy, the issue’s descent into rank nativism should be quick. As in: “Our country is full.” More excerpts:
“Did the chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court contribute to the deluge of migrants at the nation’s southern border? In December, John Roberts voted with the four liberal justices to sustain yet another national injunction that a district court judge imposed against the Trump administration’s revision of the asylum laws.
“In retrospect, the chief justice’s decision to vote against the court’s four conservatives was a major event in the border drama. The legal blockade against immigration policy likely led to an enraged president firing Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. In turn, this policy collapse is going to poison the U.S. immigration debate for years.
“The justices got one chance to issue a yellow flag on the border mayhem. Instead, they let it rip.
“The discretionary asylum revisions proposed late last year by the Trump administration would have required the caravan masses from Central America to make asylum pleas at ports of entry, instead of coming across anywhere on the border.
“The goal, as border security officers had been saying for months, was primarily to make the exploding mess at the border manageable. Apprehensions are now hitting a mind-boggling 3,000 people each day. ” . . .
