    Arrests? Sounds like armed insurrection and war by illegal combatants to me.

    You are like that bad Clinton joke in Doonesbury. "The law is unconstitutional. - Which part?"

    In fact, what is clear is that the general statutory scheme of tossing out legal immigrants who commit crimes is constitutional, provided you are clear about what the crimes are, e.g. defrauding the post office by causing the transmission of a letter through the mails without affixing proper postage?

    What is unconstitutional is what Scalia held to be unconstitutional - attempting to hold people criminally liable for actions that are so vaguely described that you don't know whether they fall afoul of the proscribed action or not.

    E.g. to use Gorsuch's example, by attacking Trump's SC choice have you committed treason? You have certainly expressed genuine actual unconcealed undeniable contempt for the sovereign.

    PS Here is the CA penal code on burglary

    Every person who enters any house, room, apartment, tenement, shop, warehouse, store, mill, barn, stable, outhouse or other building, tent, vessel, as defined in Section 21 of the Harbors and Navigation Code, floating home, as defined in subdivision (d) of Section 18075.55 of the Health and Safety Code, railroad car, locked or sealed cargo container, whether or not mounted on a vehicle, trailer coach, as defined in Section 635 of the Vehicle Code, any house car, as defined in Section 362 of the Vehicle Code, inhabited camper, as defined in Section 243 of the Vehicle Code, vehicle as defined by the Vehicle Code, when the doors are locked, aircraft as defined by Section 21012 of the Public Utilities Code, or mine or any underground portion thereof, with intent to commit grand or petit larceny or any felony is guilty of burglary. As used in this chapter, “inhabited” means currently being used for dwelling purposes, whether occupied or not. A house, trailer, vessel designed for habitation, or portion of a building is currently being used for dwelling purposes if, at the time of the burglary, it was not occupied solely because a natural or other disaster caused the occupants to leave the premises..

    In other words, if I enter your house, with the intent of offering for purchase a time share which I should have known was fraudulent, I have committed a fraud and therefore committed a burglary, even if I leave peaceably with no purchase agreement, cash or pilfered item in hand. Unless my pen and paper are regarded as assault weapons there was no threat of violence intended or implied.

    Thus, as Gorsuch stated, the connection between a burglary and a crime of violence is too vague to be enforceable.

    Then strike down a narrow point, not the whole freaking thing!

    Stop, take a breath and read what Gorsuch wrote. He did strike the law down on a very narrow point - the narrowest of all points possible. The law is so ambiguous that it fails to provide adequate notice as to what is required to steer clear of the law.

    PS. Define Criminal.

    We are all criminals. Every day all of us are in violation of some regulatory scheme or other that carries potential criminal penalties for violation. Most certainly you are guilty of a host of environmental crimes. Should we toss you out of the country after we indict you, and force a confession before you are bankrupted.

    Now go reread Gorsuch's opinion and tell me what is wrong with Gorsuch's opinion. We are talking reasoned argument, not that you want the outcome voted that the dissent voted for. What do you want as the enduring law and the enduring legal opinion to result from this case - that we can toss you out every time some DC bureaucrat decides he doesn't like the way you look.

    Let's pass a law saying tax cheats should be thrown into jail for 10 years and have their homes confiscated.

    Define tax cheat. Failure to add the sales tax for a bag of tomatoes at the untended roadside farm produce stand?

    In case you thought courts granting new rights to criminal aliens was a pastime only of the left-wing judges on the Ninth Circuit think again. Yesterday, Neil Gorsuch...

    Daniel Horowitz is now on my list of idiots useful to the other side. This isn't about granting rights to criminals. This is about restricting the powers of the federal government and limiting the reach of arbitrary and capricious bureaucrats [cf. our hero Scott Pruitt doing in the deep state conspiracy called the EPA].

    I happen also to agree with you and I don’t think we are actually in the minority. See my post #8 on what Gorsuch actually said. To someone who believes that the Constitution should have sharp edges that cut deeply (to quote WFB) Gorsuch sounds pretty good.

    “Gorsuch really screwed us on immigration.Most of the commentary has been bad on this and here is why”

    Gorsuch didn’t screw anyone. He stood up for sound constitutional principles, but most people have attacked him without reading him.

    Here is where you can find Gorsuch’s concurring opinion

    Here is what Gorsuch wrote:

    “Vague laws invite arbitrary power. Before the Revolution,
    the crime of treason in English law was so capaciously
    construed that the mere expression of disfavored
    opinions could invite transportation or death. The founders
    cited the crown’s abuse of “pretended” crimes like this as one of their reasons for revolution. See Declaration of
    Independence ¶21. Today’s vague laws may not be as
    invidious, but they can invite the exercise of arbitrary
    power all the same—by leaving the people in the dark
    about what the law demands and allowing prosecutors and
    courts to make it up.
    The law before us today is such a law. Before holding a
    lawful permanent resident alien like James Dimaya subject
    to removal for having committed a crime, the Immigration
    and Nationality Act requires a judge to determine
    that the ordinary case of the alien’s crime of conviction
    involves a substantial risk that physical force may be
    used. But what does that mean? Just take the crime at
    issue in this case, California burglary, which applies to
    everyone from armed home intruders to door-to-door
    salesmen peddling shady products. How, on that vast
    spectrum, is anyone supposed to locate the ordinary case
    and say whether it includes a substantial risk of physical force? The truth is, no one knows.”

    You don’t have to hit a like button. You just have to visit a site where a like button has been activated. It’s as if your local MacDonalds when you drive by takes your car license, phone data, and does facial scanning of all the car occupants.

    You are a clueless idiot bloviating about that which you understand nothing. The President has no power to arbitrarily expel legal residents, nor should he. Do you want Clinton to have this power? Maybe she could decide you are illegal and expel you without judicial review.

    Folks like you don't deserve constitutional rights.

    Decent people don't fight back against the marching horde of leftist tyrants. They are right after all, and who can do anything in the face of right except stand on street corners with protest signs [Time to ban protest signs. They lead to political extremism. They are not freedom of expression since they don't express anything and besides individuals marching around with signs don't constitute a free press] against the mandated issue of the day repeating the mandated talking points of the day.

    Who would dare?

    Sorry. If our tripartite government has any meaning at all, then what you said should be a joke, but there are too many here who think that that is what Gorsuch should be doing. Or rather they should be interpreting the law to mean what it should mean to get their desired outcome - deportation of folks they don't like. Of course it's a recipe that could backfire big-time.

    It is always good for folks to ask themselves the question what should due process mean if lamestream bureaucrats decided to go after them, their papers, their farms, their houses, their kids, their dogs. Oh what, they already have - such a pity.

    He could have just helped out by deciding what Congress really meant

    As Gorsuch stated, the law must be precise enough to provide notice as to what the prohibited actions are. You could say, yes, you can come here, but if you get a parking ticket you will be deported. That is precise notice, and perhaps constitutional (if it is not capriciously petty), but no one would risk liberty and property to come here under such circumstances.

    A law that states you can be deported for any reason that Neil Gorsuch finds constitutional would for the notice reason be unconstitutional.
