Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg expressed concern about rising anti-immigrant sentiment during remarks she gave in Hawaii this weekend.

“I think of the U.S. as a place that welcomes people from abroad who want to work and who are yearning to be free,” she said. “It’s disheartening to see that there are some people who don’t agree with that view who think our borders should be closed. But it’s not the first time in U.S. history that has happened.”

She added that she hopes the country will quickly restore its reputation “as a land of freedom and democracy that embraces people who come to us as strangers and then become part of us.”

    Ruth Bader Ginsberg from the American Civil Liberties Two Faced Lying Hypocrite Union. Hey Ruth, your ACLTFLHU was founded by a communist and atheist. Your ACLTFLHU supports showing children be raped on the internet. Then your organization supports letting child molesters go. Since your organization was founded by a communist and atheist, why don’t you move to North Korea?

      So, will ANY news reporter say this is why ‘SHE SHOULD recuse herself” from the case if the Trump Immigration bill makes it tot he Scoutus, cause she OBVIOUSLY CANNOT BE impartial..

      But then after seeing how many media orgs gave her AND that other witch a free pass on their PERFORMING OF GAY MARRIAGES, but let them sit on the bench to rule that we now are a Gay marriage OK country, and no one cried “She should recuse herself” i highly doubt it..

    “Anti-immigrant” sentiment…. When will the left ever understand that our position on the right is NOT “Anti-immigrant”. It is “Anti-ILLEGAL-Immigrant”. The sad part is that the media and the left KNOW that is our position but they are KNOWINGLY obscuring this with demagogic rhetoric and the same old “racist, sexist, bigot, homophobic, xenophobic, jingoist” name-calling. We on the right KNOW that this nation was built by peoples from all across the world and that innovations and productivity are improved all the time by IMMIGRANTS and NATIVES alike. It is the democrat-sanctioned influx of ILLEGAL immigrants and those that do not want to come here to be AMERICANS to which we object.

      The LEFT keeps pounding us with this untruthful message because it rallies the LEFT masses, who swallow the hook, line and sinker!

      This is the same reason they keep saying deporting illegal immigrants will “separate families”. Who broke the law??!! Are we no longer permitted to enforce the laws of the U.S.? It is actions of the illegal immigrants who are facing the consequences for THEIR actions!

      It is all to tug at the heart strings, but is in reality is the epitome of “fake news”.

      I have had the same feeling for a long time. I wonder if the “American” children of Mexican citizens need to get a visa to enter the country? Or would they break into Mexico and deport the children? Now wouldn’t that be ironic!

      Libtards have no sensible middle ground. There is only 0 and 100 percent. If we say we need to restrict immigration from known problem areas, they respond with, “YOU DON’T WANT ANY IMMIGRATION AT ALL?”

      This is true in any and all discussions with libtards. If you want to ease up on regulations, they assume you want to burn down all the redwood trees. Common sense trade negotiation? That must mean never trade with any other country again ever, and also go to war with the whole world.

      Contrary to popular snowflake belief, there are numbers between 0 and 100. Going from 10% to 9% on immigration might be sensible. Going to 0% or 100% is not.

      They go straight to either 0 or 100, try to make it look like you said it, and then call you stupid for saying it. I’m not going to apologize for your misunderstanding of how things are. Nor am I going to apologize for the lies you tried to put in my mouth. Why not just sit over there with a coloring book. We got this. The adults are in charge now, and it’s hard to fix your mess with all that shrieking.

      The libs need to take a time out. A really, really long time out.

      Unfortunately, they will not be disciplined

      It is also why their lives are so chaotic and they want to blame their failure to rule over their own life on everyone else.

    Ginsburg full speed ahead. Ginsburg, iceberg both sink ships.

    Does anyone still have the same respect for the Supreme Court since she and four others imagined a new right in the Constitution just so they could dictate to everyone else what they thought best?

    Now she is bloviating on another topic she knows nothing about, and wants to present a view that is as completely wrong as a forecast of a Hillary election

    The United States lets more people immigrate to our country than all the rest of the world’s countries combined and we are doing it with record numbers, but the wicked witch, instead, conjures up an evil spell to be spread over the land, to cloud the minds of her sewer trolls, from the truth, so they can destroy the peace of the inhabitants.

    The only mystery is how people who are so upside down in their views can feed themselves and don’t seem to think food should be put in their anus and have it come out their mouth. Am serious. How is it they know what needs to be done for their own life but for everyone else they try to force feed us excrement and pretend it is wholesome food?

    **** Snoozeburg, the US welcomed immigrants who came LEGALLY and CONTRIBUTED to it — not those that traitors (you hate the Constitution, and indicated you’d move to Kiwiland if Trump won — and then didn’t follow through) like you protect and abet!

    BTW, I came here quite legally (through NAFTA) and eventually (2005) naturalised!

    Let’s hope that she reaches room temperature soon. Our nation can not survive much more of her bull stuff rulings. Everyone in this nation is or comes from an immigrant, even the native Americans, they were just a few thousand years earlier than the rest of us. We don’t hate immigrants, most of us don’t hate anyone, we dislike criminals that break our immigration laws and come here illegally.

    We are the land of the free and not a democracy but a Republic. And yes, we are welcoming for those that want to be free, and assimilate, but they need to follow the laws put in place and come in the correct way, otherwise, you break the law and therefore not a law abiding “citizen” or one that wants to be free and assimilate which means following our customs and laws. They aren’t part of us if they are still waving the flag of their origin and trying to follow “their” laws such as Sharia.

    Any anit-immigrant sentiment is due to the fact that immigration laws are not being enforced. It is illegal immigration we have a problem with and with those who take but don’t give back.

      Combine with the fact liberals always push for amnesty for these people, but care NOT for the victims OF the crimes Illegal invaders cause…

      WE ARE sick and tired of being treated WORSE as Citizens of the USA, than those illegally here..

    As a judge, or in this case a justice sitting on the the Supreme Court, Ruthie should be above making politically correct statements. Then again, she has little regard for The Constitution thinking of it as piece of paper to be ingnored if does not suit the current public (read: biased poll) opnions.

    I refer Ms Ginsberg and all readers to a very good article written by Michelle Malkin “Not All Immigrants are welcome”. It spells out legitimate concerns and lists types of visas currently being issued and their quantities.
