SCOTUS OKs Trump’s sensible travel restrictions — for now

Posted by on | December 5, 2017 | No Comments

Left-wing media placing political correctness before safety, reconfigure restrictions as a “Muslim ban”

Good news came Monday in the form of a U.S. Supreme Court decision which handed a victory to President Donald Trump by allowing imposition of his travel restrictions affecting people from six terror sponsoring countries to go into effect. Counties on the list are Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Syria, and Yemen. Some Venezuelan government officials are also denied access to the U.S.

But the high court’s order is a waffle.

A federal court in Hawaii blocked the government from implementing the Trump administration’s Sept. 24 order allowing enhanced vetting and blocking entry into the U.S. by potential terrorists or other public safety threats. A federal judge in Maryland barred the government from enforcing the order relating to foreign nationals of affected countries claiming to have relationships with persons or institution in the United States. Lawyers representing the administration took the case to the Supreme Court last month seeking to implement all of the provisions providing security to Americans. 

The Trump administration argued that the September 24 order is different from its predecessors not only because of the “extensive worldwide review process” that led to its creation, but also because it applies to countries where Muslims are not a majority.

Still, the challenges go forward. The far left and frequently overturned San Francisco-based 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is scheduled to hear oral argument on Wednesday, with oral arguments to follow in the 4th Circuit, based in Richmond, Virginia on Friday.

Liberal Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Clinton appointee) and Sonia Sotomayor (Obama appointee) dissented from Monday’s Supreme Court opinion.
