Senate Confirms Supreme Court Short-Lister Don Willett to Fifth Circuit Appeals Court

ㅤPictured: Don Willett

ㅤ”Before his confirmation, Willett served as a justice on the Texas Supreme Court. A graduate of Duke Law School, he began his career as a law clerk to a judge on the Fifth Circuit court he now joins. He later served as a special assistant to the President in the White House under Bush 43, then as Texas deputy attorney general.
ㅤWillett is also an Evangelical Christian. Although Evangelicals account for between 15 and 24 percent of the electorate, based on how the term is defined, they are currently underrepresented on the federal appeals courts. Christian conservatives are delighted to see President Trump’s willingness to consider members of their community for the bench, in an era where orthodox Christian beliefs are ridiculed in elite circles.”

Mexico Butts into Fight Against Texas’ Sanctuary City Ban

ㅤ”The government of Mexico stepped into the fight against the State of Texas’ new anti-sanctuary city law. Mexico filed an amicus brief in support of the several Texas cities and organizations bringing suit against the state seeking to overturn the SB4 legislation on constitutional grounds.”

ㅤô¿ô …Let me get this straight. A government is fighting another government so that its people can enter the other government’s country. I believe that’s called an INVASION.
