#517 Supreme Court rulings

U.S. Supreme Court: Migrants While we don’t take a position on non-lethal aspects of immigration policy, we have a longstanding opposition to deadly racism: The callousness of border control causes hundreds of deaths. The treatment of pregnant women in custody can put them in danger of miscarriages. Eugenics is a root cause of both abortion promotion and of hostility to immigrants.
