Ruth Bader Ginsburg voted from her hospital bed and Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the good guys to turn back Trump’s Justice Department’s attempt to reinstate the ban on asylum seekers.

“Dec. 21 (UPI) — The Supreme Court on Friday denied the Trump administration’s request that it be allowed to enforce an asylum ban on migrants who enter the country illegally.

Four justices, including Samuel Alito Jr., Neil GorsuchBrett Kavanaugh and Clarence Thomassided with the president.

The request came after the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals denied the administration’s request to strike down a lower judge’s order to block the ban.

“Just as we may not, as we are often reminded, ‘legislate from the bench,’ neither may the Executive legislate from the Oval Office,” Judge Jay Bybee, a President George W. Bush appointee, wrote for the majority in the earlier ruling.”

Great News but there’s more!
