President Donald Trump received a huge victory, although temporary, from the Supreme Court on Monday. His executive order to restrict travel, including immigration and refugee) from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen will be heard for arguments before the high court in October, but in the interim, the Supreme Court lifted the lower court’s injunction to block the travel order. Travelers from those nations will be banned from traveling to the US unless they can provide verifiable documentation that they have a valid reason and contact her in the States.
The Supreme Court delivered a win to President Trump on Monday, allowing his travel ban to take effect, albeit on a limited basis, before it hears a lawsuit against the policy this fall.
While lower courts had blocked the ban since February, the Supreme Court cited precedent to allow parts of it to take effect, stating that preserving national security is “an urgent objective of the highest order.”
“To prevent the government from pursuing that objective by enforcing [the ban] against foreign nationals unconnected to the United States would appreciably injure its interests without alleviating obvious hardship to anyone else,” the court said…
While President Trump was only trying to keep America and Americans safer from terrorists, liberals refused to accept that and whined that foreigners and possible terrorists had more rights that prevailed over the rights to safety of the American people. All of the lower federal courts that issued blocks of Trump’s travel ban were done so by liberal judges with histories of ruling on political instead of law. It’s refreshing to see the Supreme Court look at the law.
