Bryanna Bevins on the Supreme Court

Bryanna Bevins makes a good point about how the Supreme Court has made decisions that encourage the breaking of our immigration laws.

One point though:

She uses imprecise language in asserting that:

"In 2001 (and again last year), the Supreme Court ruled that criminal aliens could not be held for more than six months if their home country refuses repatriation."

She should have mentioned that the six months refers to after they have served criminal sentences for their crimes. In other words, someone who gets sentences to 25 years for a murder will not be released 6 months after his arrest or his sentencing, but 6 months after serving his 25 years in prison.

Still, it's wrong that illegal aliens can be effectively legalized because they committed a crime.

That is all.
