Court to Trump: Go ahead and protect the borders

The Supreme Court showed it still has enough sane members to preserve our democratic republic.

The court rejected the crackpot theory that there is some sort of right to come to America no matter how likely it is that you may blow things up.

The court upheld President Trump's executive order imposing a moratorium on travel from six mostly war-torn countries.

Obviously governments under duress often cannot fully vet the people they give passports to.

Trump has a nation to protect.

From the Associated Press:
The Supreme Court is letting the Trump administration enforce its 90-day ban on travelers from six mostly Muslim countries, overturning lower court orders that blocked it.
The court did leave one category of foreigners protected, those "with a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States," the court said in an unsigned opinion. The justices will hear arguments in the case in October.
The action Monday is a victory for President Donald Trump in the biggest legal controversy of his young presidency.
Trump said last week that the ban would take effect 72 hours being cleared by courts.
Frankly, I want the judges to stop the ability of some Obama-appointed, radicalized judge in Hawaii to arbitrarily halt a president on national security.

But then again, I believe in checks and balances, which we do not have on the judiciary.

This is a temporary victory in a game we should not be playing.

By the way, the moratorium should be over by the time they hear the case.

They can read calendars.

They also can read newspapers, and I doubt they want to accept responsibility for any calamity caused by a constitutionally shady argument that there is a right to a visa.

  1. The Court returns to its senses only when it feels endangered.

  2. It certainly took long enough. One can only hope that in the interim no potential bad actors got in. (And it is only a faint hope.)

  3. Amend/extend the EO. Am I missing something here?

  4. "They also can read newspapers, and I doubt they want to accept responsibility for any calamity caused by a constitutionally shady argument that there is a right to a visa." Some will, regardless.

  5. Hawaii's successful law suit against the travel ban remains in force as indicated by the blue-highlighted text in the extract posted above. However, the Hawaii AG's main argument against the ban, that it discriminated against Muslims, and similar language in the legal opinion of circuit court Judge Watson, who sided with Hawaii in the original filing, were rejected by the SCOTUS. Hawaii has thus far won its case but not for the main reason it offered in opposition to the ban. Being Democrats, they will claim a moral victory and ignore the fact that the SCOTUS has decided most of their legal hyperventilating was wrong-headed.

  6. I wish the AP article or any other let it be known if any of the 4 libs/commies on the court were against this ruling.

  7. During the time between the unconstitutional block on the ban and now the State Department has kicked in the after burners in bringing Muzscum to America. What is the right thing to do with them? Can we send them back? If not can we ship every stinking one of them to Hawaii? (And a whole lot more that came in prior to Barry hitting the road.)
