The US Supreme Court handed President Donald J. Trump an epic victory on Monday morning. International observers, concerned American citizens, and the administration officials in the Trump State Department all held their breath for the SCOTUS ruling on the President’s signature travel ban.
The justices ruled that the policy can take full effect despite multiple legal challenges against it that haven’t yet made their way through the legal system.
The ban applies to people from Syria, Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia and Yemen.
President Donald Trump’s travel ban executive order is once again to largely go back into effect after the Supreme Court of the United States stayed two lower courts’ injunctions Monday.
The orders come in response to filings by the Department of Justice Friday asking the Supreme Court to stay the preliminary injunctions in the two main travel ban cases, Hawaii v. Trump in the Ninth Circuit and International Refugee Assistance Project v. Trump in the Fourth Circuit. These cases have been proceeding up and down the federal court system for months.
The district courts, especially that of Barack Obama-appointed District of Hawaii Judge Derrick Watson, have repeatedly ruled that the bans must be blocked from going into effect or must, in the interim, be interpreted in such a way as to have little effect on the list of mostly Muslim majority countries from which travel is prohibited under the orders.
It is truly a sad day in this country when the lower courts place an injunction on a commonsense executive order. Does this country really need foreigners from radicalized countries streaming across our borders? In light of recent acts of terror, the answer to that rhetorical question is an obvious “no.”
Check it out, per CNBC:
The Supreme Court is allowing the Trump administration to fully enforce a ban on travel to the United States by residents of six mostly Muslim countries.
The justices, with two dissenting votes, said Monday that the policy can take full effect even as legal challenges against it make their way through the courts. The action suggests the high court could uphold the latest version of the ban that Trump announced in September.
Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor would have left the lower court orders in place.
It’s difficult to understand that there are so many people out there who are willing to blindly smear President Trump as a racist for simply wanting to protect the country.
Citizens from foreign countries have no right to travel here. Law enforcement officials should be 100% positive that every person who travels to this country is coming here with the best of intentions.
If there is any doubt about that, then it’s critical to reevaluate that process! God bless our President and the Supreme Court’s ruling.
