Are you comfortable with the idea of Trump appointees on the Supreme Court?

If you support Donald Trump because of his stand on illegal immigration, you are supporting him on everything, including his future picks for the Supreme Court, of which he could have up to four.  But very little is known about what kind of judges Trump would appoint.  If Trump were to appoint leftists to the Court, it could do even worse damage to the country than the current illegal alien invasion.

Here are what leftists would like to legislate from the bench:

Abortion: Leftists would love to outlaw all restrictions on abortions up until the moment of birth.  They would pass a court ruling saying that partial-birth abortion, where the brains of the baby are drilled out and suction-vacuumed out, just like the repulsive scene from Paul Verhoeven's Starship Troopers, are consitutionally protected.  For his part, Donald Trump has long said that his "New York values" have inculcated in him a support for abortion, even partial-birth abortion.  (Although, to be fair, last year he became pro-life.)

Polygamy and pedophilia: Now that marriage is open to two people of any kind, how long will it be before the court finds that polygamy is a constitutionally protected right?  And not far behind that, what about incestuous marriages?  And then what about a marriage between a 54-year-old man and a 12-year-old boy?  This is what leftist judges want to legalize, and not just legalize, but force us all to participate in.  Today bakers and wedding photographers are being fined for not participating in gay marriages.  How long will it be before hotel owners are being sued for not renting a room out to a 54-year-old man and his 12-year-old "boyfriend"?

For his part, Trump has said that he is open to considering homosexual marriage, and presumably his judges would have the same orientation.  (Although, to be fair, last year Donald Trump said he was opposed to gay marriage.)

Guns: Leftist would love to abolish the right for private citizens to have arms.  Expect a leftist court to uphold limits on the number of bullets and guns you can own, and eventually eliminate the right to have guns at all.  As for Trump, he has long said he supported gun bans and longer waiting periods to buy weapons.  (Although, to be fair, for the past few months Trump has said he is very pro-Second Amendment.)

Private property rights: A leftist court would become even more sympathetic to confiscation of private property, which fits in perfectly with Trump's ideology. Trump has said he believes in the confiscation of private property to build casinos and shopping centers, and he supports massive federal ownership of large parts of the country.  (He said all these things very recently and has not changed yet.)

Government-imposed discrimination: Not only might a leftist court permit race-based discrimination and quotas (against white people), but if it went far enough, it might require such things.  We know those are the kinds of judges Trump would support, since he recently said he supports "affirmative action" and opposes Justice Scalia on the issue.

Voting fraud: Courts have put roadblocks in the way of state legislation to require voters to provide identification before voting.  Expect a leftist Supreme Court to outlaw any kind of identification requirements for voting, opening the door permanently to massive voter fraud.

Immigration: A leftist court might make it impossible to deport illegal aliens.  Sounds implausible?  The courts have already made it impossible for state courts to enforce immigration law.  Courts have given all kinds of benefits for people here illegally, notably the right to a free public school education.  It is only a few steps away from that to effectively outlawing the deportation of any illegal alien.  This matches Trump's very long held positions for amnesty for illegal aliens.  In fact, he hasn't really changed, saying he would deport illegals but then promptly invite them back in in an "expedited" fashion, suggesting they won't have to get to the back of the line and wait behind legal immigrants.  His current position is simply "touch back amnesty."

Until last year, Donald Trump had a long history of supporting leftist causes.  It is too great a risk to elect him president and give him the opportunity to turn the court to the left for decades to come.  Anyone who thinks that Trump, who never talks about the need to follow the Constitution in any of his speeches, will appoint constitutional conservatives is simply deluding himself.  Even if you support him on immigration issues, the tremendous damage he would cause on the court for a generation would more than offset whatever improvements he might make on the border.
