    Encouraging Illegal Aliens To Remain In The US Is A Crime, Supreme Court Rules

    Encouraging Illegal Aliens To Remain In The US Is A Crime, Supreme Court Rules

    Jason Hopkins Immigration and politics reporter May 08, 2020 12:01 PM ET

    The Supreme Court unanimously upheld a federal statute that forbids encouraging illegal aliens to remain in the U.S. unlawfully in a decision Thursday.

    The Supreme Court justices voided an earlier decision by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which had ruled that a federal anti-harboring statute was unconstitutional on the grounds that it violated the First Amendment by restricting free speech. The ruling by the nation’s highest court Thursday upholds the law.

    The Supreme Court not only vacated the appeals court’s decision, but also criticized the judges for “drastically” straying from judicial norms.
    Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a liberal stalwart of the bench, wrote the high court’s opinion.

    “[T]he appeals panel departed so drastically from the principle of party presentation as to constitute an abuse of discretion,” Ginsburg wrote, and later stated that “a court is not hidebound by the precise arguments of counsel, but the Ninth Circuit’s radical transformation of this case goes well beyond the pale.”

    The decision brings to a close a court battle that lasted roughly 10 years.

    A grand jury indicted California immigration consultant Evelyn Sineneng-Smith in 2010 for multiple violations of anti-harboring laws, which make it a felony to “encourag[e] or induc[e] an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law.”

    Sineneng-Smith encouraged illegal alien clients to apply for a certification that would allow them to remain legally in the country, despite them not qualifying for the certification, according to the indictment. She would charge her clients a fee for this service, and allegedly made millions off of the scheme.

    Sineneng-Smith earned more than $3.3 million off of her clients, legal affairs outlet Jurist reported.

    In a challenge to the decision, Sineneng-Smith argued that the law violated her right to free speech. The Ninth Circuit reversed her conviction, finding that the entire law was invalid as an over broad restriction of speech.

    The Ninth Circuit’s reversal however, was not based on arguments presented by her defense, but by third party arguments submitted to the panel of judges.

    The Supreme Court ruled that the Ninth Circuit overstepped its authority by injecting an argument not made by the defendant herself. The decision ultimately reaffirms that parties — not the courts — shape issues in a court case.

    The case is now to be sent back to the Ninth Circuit “for reconsideration … bearing a fair resemblance to the case shaped by parties.”
    The decision was hailed by immigration hawks.

    “We applaud the Court’s well-reasoned decision,” Dale L. Wilcox, executive director and general counsel of Immigration and Reform Law Institute, said in a statement.

    “Unfortunately, the Court did not have to reach the issue of whether this important statute is constitutional, but it did keep the law in place. When and if the overbreadth issue is brought up properly by a defendant in the future, we will be there,” Wilcox said.

    Government offices "encourage" them to remain in the U.S. by awarding them drivers licenses, registering them to vote, HUD housing, welfare, food stamps, healthcare, jobs, monetary rewards, IRS child tax credits, WIC, TANF, and providing them lawyers.

    When is the Supreme Court going to strike down Birthright Citizenship? THAT "encourages" illegal aliens and foreign visitors to come here and give birth on our soil. They also do not pay the hospital bill. It is visa fraud for birth tourism and women coming here for the express purpose of giving birth here. Issue them a "Certificate of Child Born Abroad" and deport them all.

    Their countries laws state if the give birth on foreign soil then that child IS a citizen of their country. This needs to be investigated as well, and those birth certificates need to be nullified and reissue a Certificate of Child Born Abroad. Those visas need to be nullified and those women who have committed visa fraud need to be banned from coming back here, those children are NOT U.S. citizens!!! Get this issue to the Supreme Court!

    All 50 states and D.C. issue licenses to illegal aliens with DACA and have since 2015.
    ============================

    5/29/2015
    "The law is effective immediately, meaning that Dreamers granted DACA finally have the right to apply for driver's licenses in all 50 states."
