SCOTUS AFFIRMED RACIST STATUS QUO BY ITS ANTI-IMMIGRANT RULING

Los Angeles– The SCOTUS just affirmed today it’s racist and anti-immigrant biased laws.

The Alliance Philippines is not surprised with the racist and anti-immigrant decision of the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) with its 4-4 decision today that affirmed the status quo against DAPA and DACA or the Executive Actions of President Barack Obama to the delight of the reactionaries all over the land.

The SCOTUS is only affirming it’s long and racist tradition for the status quo like the recent decision affirming police power over the people and the recent decision that affirmed centuries old “insular act” ” that ruled against the Samoans and other API peoples colonized by the US are “nationals” not worthy of American citizenship.

The Anti-Filipino WWII Veterans Ruling

This colonial ruling of the Insular Act of 1901 by Justice Brown was used by the SCOTUS to deny the JFAV appeal for a certiorari in 2015. This denial was given after the JFAV appeal on the 9th Court of Appeals in Northern California was also denied.

This denial “for the lack of merit” affirmed the that the Filipino World War II Veterans are “nationals and therefore not “American citizens” are not “eligible for benefits and rights under the American law” . Again, this was reiterated by the Recision Act of 1946 by the 79th US Congress in February 18, 1946.

After the Supreme Court ruling blocking expansion of DACA, we must remind ourselves and remember that our power as people does not depend on the courts.

We got DACA from community power and we will use community power to move forward.

Fight Back! No Reactionary Laws Can Subdue The People’s Will!
