After reading thru this site and thinking on my own experiences either personally or by reading the news, judges opinions vary from bench to bench and case to case.If this weren't the case, truth in sentencing laws would never have come to be. I dont believe with such a varying possibility of opinions that judges should be in charge of the immigration policy for the U.S.. That they control what comes before them on a per case basis, this is true, they are judges and overlook court cases all day. The Supreme Court has the duty to decide what is and isn't constitutional and state and federal laws passed etc.... That being said with the possibility of too many hands in the cookie jar, I believe we need to have a standard policy when it comes the securing and admitting to our country people from different cultures,customs and nationalities. To allow judges this authority you wound in essence hand too much control of the nation to a body that is neither chosen by nor answerable to the very people which they are in service to. The begining lines way back when were simply stated We The People , to take the people out of the loop doesn't cut it. Judges don't answer to the population the way an elected official does. If an official makes a policy that is unjust or unfavorable we have the ability thru channels of trying to prevent or stop such judgement, with a judge that isn't the case.
