(National Sentinel) Executive Power: Either lower federal courts throughout the land are filled with jurists who are either constitutionally ignorant or politically motivated and frankly, we believe it is the latter.
Because that’s the only explanation for a series of rulings blocking President Donald J. Trump’s ban on travel to the U.S. from some terrorism-infested countries, given the very plain language in federal law and the president’s constitutional authority to implement foreign and national security policy.
As reported by the Daily Wire:
So much winning.
President Trump won yet another battle when the Supreme Court late Tuesday tossed out an appeals court ruling that struck down his previous temporary travel ban targeting eight Muslim-majority nations that are known terrorist hotbeds.
Even though the ban had already expired (and been replaced by a new one), the ruling was a moral victory signifying that Trump and his administration had been within the law and the Constitution when taking action to protect America.
“In a one-page order, the court acted in one of two cases pending before the nine justices over Trump’s travel ban, a case from Maryland brought by the American Civil Liberties Union, which sued to stop the ban contained in a March executive order,” Reuters reported.
Last month, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy issued a temporary order blocking a 9th Circuit Court of Appeals decision that would have limited Trump’s travel ban.
Kennedy’s ruling allows the Trump administration “to exclude most refugees from entering the United States while the Supreme Court considers challenges to its revised travel ban,” The New York Times reported.
The language of the law is very plain: Presidents have exclusive rights to ban anyone from anywhere for any reason from coming into the United States.
What does the relevant statute say? Section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 states: “Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate [emphasis added].”
That’s about as plain as it gets.
So much winning.
