Fox News reports, “Supreme Court Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor issued a scathing rebuke of the court’s decision to allow the Trump administration to enforce its ‘public charge’ rule in the state of Illinois, limiting which non-citizens can obtain visas to enter the U.S.
Fox goes on, “Sotomayor’s problems with the conservative majority’s ruling went far beyond this case, claiming that it was symptomatic of the court’s habit of siding with the government when they seek emergency stays of rulings against them.”
I find this particularly hypocritical since the leftist justices vote in lockstep far more reliably than the justices she calls out. I remember listening to her confirmation hearings. She promised an open mind on gun issues and immediately proved herself to be a liar after taking her place on the court. In a normal world, her “wise Latina” comment would have been enough to sink her nomination. Oh, well. I shouldn’t be surprised anymore by someone of the left lacking self-awareness.Published in
