Supreme Court upholds Trump travel ban on some Muslim-majority nations


Fox News

The Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld President Trump’s controversial travel ban affecting several mostly Muslim countries, offering a limited endorsement of the president’s executive authority.

The ruling was 5-4 upholding the selective travel restrictions, which critics have dubbed a “Muslim ban” but the administration argued was needed for security reasons.

At issue was whether the third and latest version of the administration’s policies affecting visitors from five majority Muslim nations – known as travel ban 3.0 — discriminates on the basis of nationality and religion, in the government’s issuance of immigrant visas.

Chief Justice John Roberts wrote that the order was “squarely within the scope of Presidential authority” under federal law.

Glad to hear that the Supreme Court affirmed existing law on immigration and Presidential authority.

“The exclusion of aliens is a fundamental act of sovereignty … inherent in the executive power,” the Supreme Court said in 1950. And lest there be doubt, 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.”

    That last paragraph…

    Existing Law on Immigration

    Now this is where I seem to get myself confused

    That’s the Law I understanding it accept it and most importantly I agree with it

    So why does it seem to me that the “Existing Law on Immigration” doesn’t apply at our Southern Border 󾓦

    Victory tastes so sweet!

    Now, let’s put a permanent ban in place…no one comes into the nation for any reason who believes that he has a right to kill, maim, rape, torture…or force family members to dress a certain way or they will be abused/punished according to the tenets of his religion…and who think non-believers should pay a tax to them or who think that our laws do not apply to them.

    Add in…all should be banned who have no means of personal support IN HAND nor skills to benefit American society at large…that includes men, women and unaccompanied minors.

    If churches, other religious institutions, or charities want to assist the downtrodden, then those groups need to go to the country of origin and help people in place. None of this bringing them to the U.S. and fobbing off their responsibilities to the rest of us.
