The 9th Circuit Court Drops the Gavel on California

For a good number of years now, California has served as a bastion of the left. And historically, the state’s Ninth Circuit Appeals Court has sided with Democrats in a range of cases involving issues ranging from criminal law to economic policy.

As a result of the state’s policy of providing shelter to tens of thousands of undocumented immigrants during the past few years, California has taken great pride in its status as a “sanctuary state. However, the highest court in the state just handed down a significant ruling, and many people could find that judgment surprising.

In spite of recent studies indicating that California is having difficulty on a number of critical fronts, the state’s leadership appears reluctant to make any changes. The Democratic Party has traditionally held sway, and this reality still holds true today.

They also continue to voice their support for illegal immigrants, which is one of the reasons why the state approved a bill that attempted to close down the majority of detention camps. The difficulty arises from the fact that this law appears to sidestep the Supreme Court, which is something that the federal court for the Ninth Circuit simply could not permit.

The law was initially declared unconstitutional by a panel of three judges. This motion, however, was overturned by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals at the time so that the case could be reheard by all 11 judges. But that didn’t make a difference in the end result. The court emphasized “substantial changes in the population of noncitizens who are held, as well as other issues that are particular to California” in its ruling, which was rendered 8-3.

As a result of this, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) relies virtually completely on privately maintained detention facilities in the state to retain flexibility. The passage of AB 32 would put an end to their operation, which could have resulted in significant complications. Republicans and Conservatives from all throughout the state, in addition to the Immigration Reform Law Institute, expressed their delight with the ruling (IRLI).

Dale Wilcox, a member of the IRLI, expressed his satisfaction with the decision, stating that AB 32 was unconstitutional and that no state should be entitled to interfere with or nullify federal immigration law. He hailed the result.

Other deep blue states, such as New York, Illinois, Washington, and New Jersey, joined California in its efforts to outlaw ICE prisons. These states, along with New Jersey, were among those that made an effort to do away with facilities that held undocumented immigrants.

However, in the end, such strategies are illegal under federal law, and even the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in California is unable to disregard this fact. According to many reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement ICE, the crisis at the border is still in full gear. Some southern states have labeled the situation as a full-on invasion.
