Representative Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, who has solidified herself as one of leading progressive voices in the Democratic Party, denounced a decision last week by the conservative-leaning Supreme Court that allowed the Trump administration to enforce a sweeping restriction on those who can seek asylum at the southern border, saying the nation’s high court has made unjust rulings throughout American history.
“I believe that decision is morally and legally wrong,” Omar said on “Face the Nation” Sunday. “Seeking asylum is a legal right that people have and we know that the Supreme Court has been wrong before. They’ve been wrong in the equal but separation doctrine decision, they’ve been wrong in the Dred Scott decision.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Omar referred to the Supreme Court’s Plessy v. Ferguson ruling in 1896 that effectively sanctioned racial segregation in public spaces, as well as to the 1857 Dred Scott v. Sandford decision, in which the court’s majority said African Americans, freed or enslaved, were not U.S. citizens and had no standing to seek their freedom or another relief in court.
