Justice Sonia Sotomayor Unleashes 20 Minute Furious Rant Over SCOTUS Decision to Uphold Trump Travel Ban

Justice Sonia Sotomayor

The Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld the Trump travel Ban overturning a liberal judge in Hawaii who was playing pretend president.

Liberals increasingly are in favor of open borders to anyone who wants to enter the United States.
The Supreme Court disagreed with this lunacy on Tuesday.

Trump’s travel ban could result in Muslim immigration to the US to be reduced by as much as 21%.

It was a typical 5-4 decision.

Far left Justice Sonia Sotomayor was furious and unleashed a 20 minute rant over the decision to uphold Trump’s travel ban.

NPR legal reporter, Nina Totenberg tweeted: Without audio of today’s announcement, there is no way to replicate Sotomayor’s fury in a 20-minute dissent from the bench re: today’s travel ban decision

More from The Hill:

In a scathing dissent on Tuesday, Sotomayor said the court’s majority, led by Chief Justice John Roberts, blindly accepted the government’s misguided invitation to set aside problematic comments Trump made before and after taking office.

“Ultimately, what began as a policy explicitly ‘calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States’ has since morphed into a ‘Proclamation’ putatively based on national-security concerns,” she said. “But this new window dressing cannot conceal an unassailable fact: the words of the President and his advisers create the strong perception that the Proclamation is contaminated by impermissible discriminatory animus against Islam and its followers.”

Sotomayor described in detail how Trump pledged on the campaign trail to ban Muslims from entering the U.S. and then criticized the Department of Justice for submitting a “watered down, politically correct version” after the president’s first order was struck down by the courts after he took office.

“Instead, he has continued to make remarks that a reasonable observer would view as an unrelenting attack on the Muslim religion and its followers,” she said. “Given President Trump’s failure to correct the reasonable perception of his apparent hostility toward the Islamic faith, it is unsurprising that the President’s lawyers have, at every step in the lower courts, failed in their attempts to launder the Proclamation of its discriminatory taint.”

Ultra liberal Sonia Sotomayor was appointed by Barack Hussein Obama to the Supreme Court in 2009.

In 2001, Sotomayor made a racist statement about being a “wise Latina” while bashing white males:

“I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life,”

Take a seat, Sotomayor, your fellow wise Justices have spoken.
