Ted Cruz Suggests That The Supreme Court Will Uphold Trump’s Travel Ban

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit announced a unanimous verdict to uphold the restraining order against Trump’s travel ban, on Thursday.

It looks as if Trump will push the issue to the Supreme Court, as he has previously alluded to.

In fact, his tweet following the announcement of the decision seems to be saying as much.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) seems to believe it will go to the Supreme Court, and if it does, he feels things will roll back in favor of Trump’s order.

“The case will almost certainly be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court,” he said during an interview on “The Michael Berry Show” in Texas. “If the Supreme Court follows the law, federal statues are straightforward, the president has this authority.”

He added the “Supreme Court is likely to conclude exactly that when the case is before it.”

Cruz pointed out that Ninth Circuit court has proven to be a notoriously liberal court of appeals.

“If you look at what the president’s order did, the heart of the order was a four month pause in allowing refugees to come to this country so we can improve the vetting of refugees,” he said. “That in my judgment is explicitly legal.”

As was to be expected, Democrats are taking a victory lap.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) issued a statement, saying Trump should see that the executive order was unconstitutional and that he should just drop it, then come to work on a bipartisan effort to keep the nation safe.

Schumer’s remarks were quickly echoed by fellow Democrat Senators Dick Durbin (Ill.), Chris Murphy (Conn.), Jack Reid (R.I.), and Bob Casey (Pa.).

On the Republican side, the response has been more reserved. Other than Senator Cruz, Senator Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) has expressed his disappointment, referring to the Ninth Circuit as “notoriously left-wing.”

Look for President Trump to announce specific plans for moving forward, soon.

    How can they do this , when the Constitution plainly gives him the power to stop alien and foreign entities from entering America if he suspects evil on their parts . It is his job to keep Americans safe . Trump could bring evidence about Europe and the destruction they are doing to them . Find the Constitution and read it to America . Then after all the court have committed Treason hold them guilty of Treason and clear the courts and refill them as they should be . Call in the US Marshall’s to arrest everyone of them for not up holding the Constitution as the swore to do ! Seems the radical Muslim nut has messed up the minds of all our leading factions . Time to clear the fields and start all over ! These paid rioters need to be also arrested . They are creating and sighting riots with destruction of properties . The few are enabling the many to stupidity and lawlessness ! And why Trump took on Ted Cruz , the only thing I can think of is keep your friends close and your enemies closer . He is sure not an asset ! Unless he is using him and finding out information .
