UC Irvine law school dean Erwin Chemerinsky, who has a weekly column in the Orange County Register, has predictably backed the 9th Circuit in the Trump travel  ban legal fight. Here is his column of today.

Below is the comment I put in the online reader comment thread.

I suggest Chemo read Title 8 USC chapter 12 1182 (f) which gives the president authority to exclude certain individuals or groups from entering the US based on national interests (like security). Chemo never even mentioned it. I recall when Pres. Carter excluded Iranians during the hostage crisis.

As for preference being given to religious minorities like Christians, Yazidis etc. There is a clear reason why they should be given priority. They are fleeing for their lives in the face of a campaign of genocide (by Muslims). Yet, under Obama they were ignored. How ironic that so much sympathy is being given to Muslim refugees while the victims of their genocide are to be ignored.

That is the reasoning of Chemo and the left. It makes no sense.

What else can I say?
