The court voted 5-4. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan said they would have left a lower court ruling in place that blocked enforcement while a legal challenge works its way through the courts.

The Department of Homeland Security announced in August that it would expand the definition of "public charge," to be applied to people whose immigration to the United States could be denied because of a concern that they would primarily depend on the government for their income.
Those court appointments continue to pay off.

If for whatever reason you still have reservations that kicking Trump out is mission one, recall that his appointments and those who can make GENERATIONALLY BINDING DECISIONS such as his judges are doing considerable damage as well -- things that are much harder to reverse and will last a whole lot longer in America.

Hopefully we can band together and stop the hemorrhage

Also Mitch McConnell has come extremely close to fully destroying our democracy.
