President Trump Tweets Response to 9th Circuit: “See You in Court, the Security of Our Nation Is at Stake!”

Thursday, February 9, 2017 18:40
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The three judge panel on 9th Circuit appellate court has ruled that President Donald Trump’s travel restrictions on foreigners originating from seven middle eastern countries will remain blocked.

Trump’s directive, enacted by Executive Order shortly after his inauguration, directs U.S. Immigration and Homeland Security officials to halt entry from individuals who the White House says could pose a threat to national security until the agencies are able to stringently vet immigrants and visitors who request entry into the United States.

The President promptly responded to the court’s ruling on Twitter suggesting the case will soon make its way to the Supreme Court. The ALL CAPS tweet is the internet’s way to suggest you are YELLING:

The opinion of the 9th Circuit appears to contradict Federal Law, which gives the President the power to direct appropriate federal agencies to restrict entry into the United States from any class of aliens he determines to be detrimental to the interests of the United States.

MAJOR overstep of the Court’s power.  Their job is ONLY to look at the LAW….and if it’s been broken.  (it has not….)

But that is NOT what they did. 

They made a judgement on the policy, not the law.   They effectively legislated from the bench.

U.S. Code › Title 8 › Chapter 12 › Subchapter II › Part II › § 1182:

(f) Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by President:

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.

Federal law is clear on these matters and key provisions of President Trump’s executive order will likely stand under the scrutiny of the Supreme Court, to which incidentally, he just nominated a conservative leaning Justice who, if confirmed quickly by Congress, could well be the deciding vote.

    Its a real problem for those Judges , when one law says you can, and another says you cannot, and the rights of some individual are at stake.

    I agree with Trump that ALL immigration should be stopped until some form of extreme vetting can be put in place to weed out the rotten eggs.

    But then many of these travellers have applied for temporary visas for a short term VISIT to America, and have return tickets. They have applied to a US Embassy and gone through all the checks and received a legitimate travel visa. This includes people on holidays, business trips, and other valid reasons for a short term visit to America. They are not immigrants or planning to stay.

    This is what troubles the Judges.
    These are people that legitimately went through all the legal procedures to comply, bought a ticket and on arrival were held in custody. None planned to stay in the US.

    The State Department would have immediately stopped issuing visas in the countries concerned, and that is a very good thing. But many innocent travellers have been caught up in this mess.

    Trump is right, but he should have a bit more compassion for the people that had already started out on their legal and approved journey, all of which planned to return anyway.
    There will not be any more visas issued, so that will be the end of it.

    Its all a storm in a tea cup.

    Although I fully agree with Trumps sentiment, the Judges are also quite correct in that the victims in this DO have some rights when laws are suddenly changed without notice.
