So as we all know, the ninth circus court of appeals is currently hearing the case on the Trump Administrations Executive Order, which temporarily banned travel from 7 predominantly Muslim countries. It is almost certain that this infamously liberal court will not rule in Trumps favor, and that is unfortunate. When the news first came that the order was blocked out on the left coast, it was obvious that influential Democrats had gone shopping for a favorable judge and a district in our nations courts for a way to attack the executive order. To be honest, I was simply stunned by this event. The reasons should be obvious... I thought, what if something happens? What if just one terrorist slips through during this judges lifting of the ban and incinerates hundreds, perhaps thousands of Americans? It is a very real possibility. Apparently, that's a gamble they are willing to take. They hate Donald Trump so much, the hell with peoples lives and the risk they may face. They are willing to gamble with peoples lives for the sake of electoral math. They have shown this on the nations borders, and now in our nations airports. The judge who issued the halt has no idea about national security issues and receives no briefings.
The first thing to review is the law:
Section 1182(f), which 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 non immigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate”
Doesn't seem to be a lot of grey area there or any legitimate excuse for a judge to usurp the power of the Presidency. I just pray that nothing happens as this thing is heard in the courts. I support the right for it to be reviewed, but i condemn the halt of the order as it is totally constitutional and within the powers of the presidency.
Also, where were these judges, judicial activists, and civil rights leaders when Obama cruelly ended the long standing wet foot, dry foot policy that now sends Cubans fleeing the Castro regime right back to suffer god only know what fate at the bloody hands of Castro's brother.
