“The president alone has the power to decide who can enter or stay in the United States.”
President Trump’s temporary entry restrictions on travelers from the world’s most dangerous countries is backed by the U.S. Constitution.
The 14th Amendment was created to protect the rights of citizens, rights that are now being ignored by left-wing liberal judges by opening the border to potential terrorists who have infiltrated the refugee system.
Federal district judge James Robart in the ultra-liberal state of Washington spurned the rights of American citizens by striking down President Trump’s temporary entry restrictions on travelers from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Libya, Sudan and Somalia. If the judge’s ruling is allowed to stand, America will effectively be a nation without borders.
The 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution
No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
AND NOW THIS:
Appeals Court denies request to immediately reinstate travel ban
A federal appeals court early Sunday denied the Justice Department’s request for an immediate reinstatement of President Trump’s ban on accepting certain travelers and all refugees.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco instead asked challengers of the ban to respond to the appeal filed by the Trump administration late Saturday night, and for the Justice Department to file a counter-response by Monday afternoon.
The Trump administration declared that a federal judge in Seattle overstepped his authority by temporarily blocking the ban nationwide. Now the higher court’s denial of an immediate stay means the legal battles will continue for days at least.
Acting Solicitor General Noel Francisco forcefully argued Saturday night that the president alone has the power to decide who can enter or stay in the United States — an assertion that invokes the wider battle to come over illegal immigration.
“The power to expel or exclude aliens is a fundamental sovereign attribute, delegated by Congress to the executive branch of government and largely immune from judicial control,” the brief says. — AP, Feb. 5, 2017
SO LET’S CUT THE BULL
Here are some questions for Americans who went ballistic over President Trump’s Executive Order to restrict travelers from those seven countries—Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Libya, Sudan and Somalia:
1) Would you travel to any of these countries?
2) Would you send a child to visit any of these countries?
3) Do you have concerns about the fact that these countries have either
chased out or killed virtually every Jew or Christian from the country?
4) If you are so gung-ho for our country to take in refugees from these
countries, are you willing to take one of those refugees into your home?
The seven countries are among the most dangerous and lawless in the world. The only question is why aren’t a few more countries on the list? —Bruce Bialosky, Townhall, Feb 5, 2017
