President Trump’s immigration and travel ban executive order has now made its way all the way up to The Supreme Court.
The real question is, why would this case even need to go all the way to The Supreme Court? The answer is, because of “swampy” liberal judges along the way who are trying to overstep their bounds regarding interpreting the law versus making new law.
Fortunately for President Trump, the law on immigration and related matters favor the president. Legal precedents have always given The President complete and nearly unchecked power to deny foreigners permission to enter the United States.
“The exclusion of aliens is a fundamental act of sovereignty … inherent in the executive power,” the Supreme Court said in 1950.
In addition, the Congress adopted a provision in 1952 saying the president “may by proclamation and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens and any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants” whenever he thinks it “would be detrimental to the interests of the United States.”
This seems about as clear as you are ever going to get regarding a written law!
“The opinion of these so-called judges, which essentially takes law enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned,” President Trump has said. “I just cannot believe a judge would put our country in such peril. If something happens, blame him and the court system.”
You said it, Mr. President. You said it nicely.
