Supreme Court Allows Texas Abortion Lawsuit to Proceed in Lower Court While Law Remains in Effect

Supreme Court

The highly anticipated decision from the Supreme Court is out. On Friday morning, SCOTUS ruled that the “lawsuit by abortion providers against Texas over its abortion law may proceed, despite arguments by Texas that the way the law was written made it so that parties could not sue against the law until it was enforced” reports Fox News.

The Court’s, led by Justice Neil Gorsuch stated, “the Court concludes that the petitioners may pursue a pre-enforcement challenge against certain of the named defendants but not others.”

“The petitioners then filed a request for injunctive relief with the Court, seeking emergency resolution of their application ahead of [the law’s] approaching effective date…In the abbreviated time available for review, the Court concluded that the petitioners’ filings failed to identify a basis in existing law that could justify disturbing the Fifth Circuit’s decision to deny injunctive relief” the Court said.

Thus, the Court is allowing the law to remain in effect as the lawsuit challenges its legality in a lower federal court. The Court also dismissed a challenge made by the Department of Justice against the Texas law, meaning “only the suit by private parties will go forward against the law, with the potential to invalidate at a later time” reports Fox News.

The court also noted “other viable avenues to contest the law’s compliance with the Federal Constitution also may be possible and the Court does not prejudge the possibility.”

In a concurring opinion joined by the court’s three liberals, Chief Justice John Roberts wrote “these provisions, among others, effectively chill the provision of abortions in Texas. Texas says that the law also blocks any pre-enforcement judicial review in federal court. On that latter contention, Texas is wrong.”

In a partial dissent, Justice Sonia Sotomayor criticized her colleagues for not putting the law on hold while the lower courts continue to decide the case. “The (Supreme) Court should have put an end to this madness months ago. It failed to do so then, and it fails again today.”

Just The News put together a terrifying report on the announcement by officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Enforcement and Removal Operations. Data released Monday unearthed that the agency arrested more than 130 sex offenders illegally present in the United States in a nationwide campaign.

From Oct. 22 through Nov. 4, law enforcement arrested 138 noncitizens, “including some with an executable final order of removal,” ICE wrote in a statement about the operation.

“Many of those arrested were described as citizens of Mexico who were convicted of child sex crimes. Offenders’ published ages ranged from 24 to 65″ adds Just The News.

“These sex offenders will be removed from the U.S., ending and impeding their ability to further victimize residents,” said Salt Lake City ICE official Michael Bernacke.

Five noncitizen sex offenders were apprehended in the Salt Lake City area, 21 were arrested in the Los Angeles area, five in the Seattle area and 15 in the San Francisco area.

ICE’s removal office conducted 3,415 arrests of noncitizens for sexual assaults last fiscal year, authorities said.
