The left has pulled out all the stops to “resist” Donald Trump’s agenda.
That includes shopping for partisan judges to block his travel ban that will keep terrorists out of America.
But the Supreme Court stepped in and handed down a ruling everyone was waiting for.
The nation’s high court ruled that Trump’s travel ban can go into effect in a 7-2 ruling.
Only radical leftists Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Sonya Sotomayor dissented.
This ruling erases injunctions put in place by liberal lower court judges who overstepped their bounds and schemed to stop Trump’s agenda.
The Daily Caller reports:
“The order permits the administration to enforce the president’s September proclamation, which suspends entry of foreign nationals from seven nations, including Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen.
Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor noted their dissent from the Court’s decision.
The Department of Justice asked the justices to lift lower court orders barring enforcement of the proclamation while legal challenges are adjudicated by the courts. Challenges to the proclamation are currently pending before the 4th and 9th U.S. Circuit Courts of Appeal.
The Court agreed to lift those orders, but expressed no view on the merits of the case.
“This a substantial victory for the safety and security of the American people,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said shortly after the order was issued. “We are pleased to have defended this order and heartened that a clear majority Supreme Court has allowed the President’s lawful proclamation protecting our country’s national security to go into full effect.”
The left continually pushed the lie that Trump’s travel ban targeted Muslims.
That was false.
North Korea and Venezuela are not Muslim countries and they were included in the executive order.
Trump also has the authority to limit the entry of aliens from countries he deems a threat under the 1952 Immigration and Nationality Act.
“Section 212(f), 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.”
The Supreme Court simply upheld the law.
Despite the protests and “resistance” from the left, Trump’s executive order was a lawful execution of his powers as laid out in the laws passed by Congress.
