You don’t necessarily have to be American to be granted constitutional rights.
Enter the far-left Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which is driving that point home…
From Daily Wire:
On Thursday, a unanimous three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit found that asylum seekers at the U.S.-Mexico border who fail their initial threshold of showing a “credible fear” of persecution in their home countries are entitled to a judicial appeal before they can be deported. The decision could severely undermine the Trump Administration’s efforts at securing the border and expeditiously deporting frivolous would-be aslyees in California and Arizona, which are both border states under the jurisdiction of the Ninth Circuit.
More from Law360:
The Ninth Circuit looked back at cases dating to the 1700s, determining that under review procedures set by the U.S. Supreme Court in a 2008 case known as Boumediene and by legal precedent set in several immigration cases dating back to the 1950s, Thuraissigiam should be covered by the suspension clause [of tbe U.S. Constitution] because he was arrested in the United States, according to the opinion.
The court went on to hold that a procedure that would not allow the California court to review the immigration judge’s determination in Thuraissigiam’s case would be unconstitutional, according to Thursday’s opinion.
Back in December 2018, the Ninth Circuit decided to go against President Trump.
This issue involved Trump’s ban on aliens seeking asylum.
A divided U.S. appeals court late Friday refused to immediately allow the Trump administration to enforce a ban on asylum for any immigrants who illegally cross the U.S.-Mexico border.
The ban is inconsistent with an existing U.S. law and an attempted end-run around Congress, a panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said in a 2-1 decision.
“Just as we may not, as we are often reminded, ‘legislate from the bench,’ neither may the Executive legislate from the Oval Office,” 9th Circuit Judge Jay Bybee, a nominee of Republican President George W. Bush, wrote for the majority.
Chief Border Patrol Agent Rodney Scott appeared on CNN.
He dropped some truth bombs about the illegal migrant caravan that is attempting to make its way into America.
For example, did the left know that grown men were pushing women and children to the front and then throwing rocks at patrol agents?
How about that the migrants tore down a section of the border wall?
“What we saw over and over yesterday is that the group, the caravan as we call them, would push women and children to the front and then begin basically rocking our agents.”
Scott added, “That is correct. 42 crossed the border and were arrested. There were numerous people that actually made it across the border. We are in the process of building a new border wall. There were sections that were dilapidated sections made out of scrap metal that the military had gave us. The group breached a section of this. The group breached a couple sections of this. They actually tore down one section. They rushed across and that’s another time that they actually started assaulting our agents.”

Migrants storm the US border. An invasion by any definition. But an invasion bought and paid for by globalists & leftist NGOs.
