Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Defendant's conviction for importation of an alien for prostitution in violation of 18 U.S.C. section 1328 is affirmed where: 1) the overbreadth doctrine was applicable only to First Amendment challenges, and section 1328 did not even arguably implicate First Amendment rights; 2) section 1328 did not reach a substantial amount of constitutionally protected conduct; 3) the statute was not vague as applied to defendant's conduct; and 4) the jury instructions did not leave the jury with unfettered discretion to convict based on its own views of sexual morality.
