The Supreme Court caved to the mob and decided to release two opinions ahead of schedule on Monday after a draft opinion was leaked overturning Roe v. Wade.
Activists wanted the abortion opinion, but the court did not grant their wish. Instead the court issues two cases, one giving Ted Cruz a victory over the Federal Election Commission and the other siding with immigration enforcement on deportation decisions,
The immigration case Patel v Garland ruled that Patel, who lived in the US illegally for 30 years, could not appeal a DOJ ruling that found he was ineligible for deportation relief.
The ruling centered around his misrepresentation of his citizenship on a drivers license form.
Conservative justice Neil Gorsuch joined the three liberal justices in dissenting against the majority opinion.
The second ruling gave Ted Cruz a win against the Federal Election Commission in his challenge of campaign loan repayment limits.
Candidates could loan their campaign’s money and be repaid from other donations, but that repayment was capped at $250,000.
Cruz strategically challenged the rule by intentionally loaning his campaign $260,000 in his fight against Beto O’Rourke in 2018, NBC News reports.
The government argued that the challenge was not proper because the violation was triggered intentionally. The Supreme Court in a 6-3 decision rejected that view and sided with Cruz that the limitation were unconstitutional.
