Supreme Court Upholds President Trump Travel Restrictions…

The Supreme Court has upheld President Trump travel restrictions and rejected the challenge to the Trump administration’s September 2017 travel ban. (full ruling pdf below). Response from the White House – Statement from the President Regarding Supreme Court Ruling:

Today’s Supreme Court ruling is a tremendous victory for the American People and the Constitution. The Supreme Court has upheld the clear authority of the President to defend the national security of the United States.

In this era of worldwide terrorism and extremist movements bent on harming innocent civilians, we must properly vet those coming into our country. This ruling is also a moment of profound vindication following months of hysterical commentary from the media and Democratic politicians who refuse to do what it takes to secure our border and our country.

As long as I am President, I will defend the sovereignty, safety, and security of the American People, and fight for an immigration system that serves the national interests of the United States and its citizens. Our country will always be safe, secure, and protected on my watch.  ~ President Donald Trump

    One side speaks to the constitutional issues, the other speaks to what looks like unconstitutional activist ambitions legislating from the bench:

    https://apnews.com/3a20abe305bd4c989116f82bf535393b/Court-upholds-Trump-travel-ban,-rejects-discrimination-claim

    “Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote in a dissent that based on the evidence in the case “a reasonable observer would conclude that the Proclamation was motivated by anti-Muslim animus.” She said her colleagues arrived at the opposite result by “ignoring the facts, misconstruing our legal precedent, and turning a blind eye to the pain and suffering the Proclamation inflicts upon countless families and individuals, many of whom are United States citizens.”

    The ‘Proclamation’ could’ve been motivated by a bad cup of covfefe or the President’s once fighting over a girl with a guy named Chad, yet still been constitutional. The question is whether the order itself complied with existing US law and was formed consistently with the powers of the office, regardless of some Sherlockian divination of intent (just like the Comey discretionary tactics). The additional contention that her colleagues turned a blind eye to pain and suffering etc. is additionally sickening, as their job is not to weigh in there but on constitutionality. What a giveaway of their unconstitutional motivations and actions.

      Well if Sotomayor thinks her colleagues are shiteheads who are idiots, then she should step down. I don’t recall during her nomination and confirmation hearing her complain that the other justices were ones to ignore facts or misconstrue legal precedents. No, she only had the highest praise for the SC justices, wanted to be with them on the mountain. But now, they’re a bunch of fools according to her. Must suck at the cafeteria during lunch time.

    Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini Salvini, who leads the Lega party which forms one half of Italy’s new populist coalition government, acts as its minister of the interior.

    His FIRST trip was to meet with Libya’s president to enforce Libya’s SOUTHERN border, to stop the flow of economic illegal migrants at the source.

      African Colonialism was a failure. It never should have started, or never should have ended.

      It gave Africans a voice in the World, literally, by gifting them with language, maybe not a single language, a couple few, but so much more effective than the many thousands of tribal languages that isolated them from even each other.

      The gift of Christianity began the reduction and elimination of myriad brutal superstitions and savageries, and initiated the contemplation of Man as more than an animal or commodity.

      Western Culture helped them see beyond the myopic tribalism of the ancestors, and gave them the tools to elevate their societies and Human Rights.

      Don’t even get me started on technology!

      Sadly, these gifts have been squandered. Some failed to take root, most are too shallowly rooted to survive the absence of the European caretakers. All have withered since de-colonization.

      Having considerable personal experience with transplanted Africans that idealize and long for the blissful days of living in filthy huts, unaware of Civilization and its blessings, while cognizant of the savagery that then prevailed, it’s hard to be at all sure they ever could stand shoulder to shoulder with the rest of the World.

      It is certain, sadly, that leaving them to their own devices, with some of the trappings of modernity but none of its soul, has been disasterous for Africa. Not to mention the World.

          Sadly true on the IQ front, as well as regards an all too low capacity for self-control and the tendency for violence.

          I not would in the least assert they have no soul, or that it’s inferior. I meant literally as I said, they possess the trappings of modernity, yet none of soul of modernity. Which encompasses Human Rights, Tolerance, an animated desire to advance the well-being of self and others, a sense of duty and obligation that transcends tribe and embraces ideals and values founded on something much greater than mere self-interest, a culture of creativity, of arts and industry, and faith and hope and investment in the future of themselves their peoples.

          I’m sure the conception of modernity is much larger than the ideas I’ve cited, but those citations get to the core of what I have observed, amongst many others whom I’ve known and read.

          I do tend to agree that colonialism was a boon for Africa. Its interruption certainly a disaster. Seeing the destructive ends to which that truncated gift has been directed, I do feel it would have been better never begun, than ended so incredibly prematurely.

          I hope to hear more of your experiences in this vein someday. Sometimes it would be so great to chat in person with so many of the wonderful Treepers we meet here. To soak up other’s perspectives and stories and expand our window on this World and beyond.

              The Europeans, seeing America blossom, thought they could replicate our success, but they neglected most of the ingredients of America’s recipe. They brought what we had abandoned.

              Yet, Africa, while saddled with borders artificial and conflict ridden, is a member of the Global community now. Not a very healthy contingent, but participating in dialogue and trade and commerce. In a position to step up their committment to the Human Family. Blessed with tremendous resources and riches, they could accomplish so much.
              So much more.

              Where would they be now otherwise? Would we have, should we have, could we have isolated that Continent?

              Islam didn’t. How long could mere Animism resist the Muslim supremecists? Those who, though having converted much of modern day Sudan, still aborned the Janaweed who raped Black Muslim women and told them that they were making a superior lighter-skinned child?

              Would they have left Africa alone? Is Islam a more compatible ideology for Africa? Is it indigenous to its people? Would Europe have survived a monolithically Islamic Africa? Is there a single advantage Islam offers Africa that Christianity couldn’t? Is there a single harm perpetrated by Christianity that Islam would not have?

    Preceding these events, Sally Yates refused to enforce Trump’s travel ban and received encouragement and support from Andrew Weissman in doing so.

    Now all of the travel bans have been supported by majorities of the Supreme Court, and were clearly lawful.

    Can anyone imagine if this were 1942 the court telling FDR we must leave the ports open to Germany and Japan because it would be “racist” not to let them in?

    Dear congressional politscum, if we are AT WAR as you continually claim over and over to justify your nation building/regime change throughout the third world, then why are you telling us to leave our borders wide open?

    Why in Valhalla do we allow these politician/fiends to get away with this garbage year in and out.

    Is there any penalty for issuing a dissent that has nothing to do with the law? These are supposed to be judges, and their feelings aren’t relevant to interpretation of the law.

    I have always thought it would be best to have a politically balanced Supreme Court. However, the Sotomayor/Ginsburg dissent applied zero logic. It was ridiculous. If this is what we can expect from very liberal judges, then there’s no point in them.

    I wish Kagan had written the dissent instead. Then maybe it’d at least be worth reading.

    I hope crow tastes good with salt, at least. Load the bench up with judges with brains, and ones who actually use them, thank you very much. Progressives need not apply.

    • Boy, I agree. I am appalled that a Supreme Court Justice would base a decision on feeling, intent and not the law. Wow, can she be impeached?

      I used to believe in a balanced SC as well. But as I got older I realized the libs are legislating not interpreting law.
      I don’t know if I matured and recognized it or if they have just gradually tilted that way, but now it is full fledged activism by the lefty SC judges.

    A decent start. We need to replace some of those leftarded SCOTUS judges with real patriots and start mass deportations of illegals, encourage leftards to relinquish their U.S. citizenship and self-deport, end auto citizenship for foreign births on U.S. soil, end chain migration, end visa importation of foreign workers and build that FKN WALL!!!

    Rep. Steve King applies this decision to the border crises in the below linked article.

    A few excerpts:

    In one ruling, the Supreme Court has delivered two major victories to President Trump. The first victory is obvious: Trump v. Hawaii validates the President’s broad authority to restrict entry of specified foreign nationals into the United States when the President finds such entry is “detrimental to the interests of the United States.”

    At issue before the Supreme Court was the scope of 8 USC 1182 (f), a federal law which delegates broad authority over immigration policy to the President. Here is the text of that statute:

    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.

    So, it is settled law. President Trump can deny foreign nationals entry to the country. He should immediately issue a Presidential Proclamation suspending the entry of foreign nationals from Mexico, Caribbean, Central, and South American countries until such time as he finds the detrimental effects of illegal immigration from these regions have been curtailed and our border is secure. These areas are home to the violent and dysfunctional countries that export the vast majority of illegal immigrants to America.

    Apologize if this is already posted but a couple of things…
    Glad the SCOTUS reinforced the Constitutional rights of the Commander in Chief and his MAIN role to protect our country against foreign enemies. Also I don’t see any dissenting SCOTUS saying anything about Obama when he banned these same 6 countries because of terrorism. Pres Trump implements the same and all H*ll breaks loose…

    My short explanation to my kids when they ask: Liberal/Democrat = Hypocrite.
    Over the years as they’ve grown into young adults they see how true those words were/are.

    “Excellent news from SCOTUS! And think about this. President Trump will probably get the opportunity to appoint two more justices to the Supreme Court when Kennedy and Ginsberg shove off! So good for the future of our nation.”

    This was posted on the liberal LA Times comment section and received 5 upvotes and 1 downvote. Wow…
