Kavanaugh’s Record Shows a Disregard for Immigrants — and the Law

Days before President Donald Trump nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, Breitbart published an article describing Kavanaugh as the “‘America First’ SCOTUS Choice.” Reading through Kavanaugh’s dissenting opinions, it’s not hard to see why a website associated with Steve Bannon would view his confirmation as a victory for their anti-immigrant agenda. Kavanaugh has a long record of ignoring well-established law to deny immigrants basic legal protections, and his opinions suggest that he subscribes to the nativist belief that the native-born are locked in a zero-sum battle with immigrants that only one side can win.
