Last Monday, the entire United States Supreme Court stated unequivocally that illegal aliens granted Temporary Protected Status are not eligible for green cards to reside in the United States permanently.
This action goes to the heart of what the Democrats have been striving to do in this country.

The vote was a direct stab in the heart of the Democrats’ agenda…
9-0. There was not a single dissenter in the room.
Could it be that the liberals on the Supreme Court believe the Democrats have gone too far?
Check it out for yourself…
According to Breitbart News, Justice Elena Kagan, who was appointed to the Supreme Court by former President Barack Obama, ruled in a 9-0 decision that a “TPS recipient who enters the United States unlawfully is not qualified… for [lawful permanent resident] status just by virtue of his TPS.”
Jose Santos Sanchez, a Salvadorean illegal immigrant, arrived in the United States in 1997. Sanchez was granted TPS in 2001, a nonimmigrant status that allows him to remain in the United States as long as TPS for El Salvador is extended by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
Sanchez applied for lawful permanent resident status, also known as a green card, in 2014 in order to permanently stay in the United States. Sanchez appealed the judgment in federal district court after the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) agency denied his green card application on the basis that he originally entered the United States illegally.
The United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit then overturned the decision, ruling that Sanchez was not qualified for a green card under federal immigration law because he originally entered the country unlawfully.
The Supreme Court ruled that federal immigration law “prevents Sanchez from becoming a [lawful permanent resident] as interpreted in its plain terms.”
In the Court’s ruling, Kagan says, “The question here is whether the conferral of TPS enables him to attain [lawful permanent resident] status despite his unlawful arrival.” “We are of the opinion that it does not.”
This is a significant decision and a significant triumph for our side, which does not want to be inundated by illegal immigration at every step.
Another reason for its significance is that it is the third 9-0 SCOTUS immigration judgment in the last two weeks.
A previously deported criminal illegal alien who attempted to avoid repatriation was unanimously dismissed by the Court.
And, only two weeks ago, the Supreme Court unanimously overturned a Ninth Circuit appeals court judgment that had aided illegal aliens seeking asylum in the United States in obtaining immigration relief.
Is it possible that the tide is finally turning?
That is why we must never give up the battle.
