Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Defendant's conviction and sentence for using a facility of interstate commerce to entice a minor to engage in sexual activity are affirmed where: 1) 18 U.S.C. section 2422(b) did not exceed Congress' commerce clause power; 2) even if none of defendant's communications were routed over state lines, the internet and telephone he used to contact the undercover officer were still instrumentalities of interstate commerce; 3) defendant's challenges to his sentence were foreclosed by circuit precedent.
