Last week, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals quietly put a hold on President Donald Trump’s refugee ban. Their ruling allowed a lot more refugees to enter the country, indicating that they don’t care about our national safety nor do they recognize the constitutional power and authority of the President of the United States.
The Trump administration turned to the Supreme Court, asking them to overrule the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling and yesterday afternoon, the high court agreed with the Trump administration by placing a hold on the 9th Circuit Court’s ruling.
The Supreme Court agreed with the Trump administration Tuesday and put on hold a lower-court decision that would have allowed more refugees to enter the country.
The court issued a one-paragraph statement granting the administration’s request for a stay of the latest legal maneuvering involving the president’s executive order on immigration. There were no recorded dissents to the decision.
At issue is whether the president can block a group of about 24,000 refugees, who have assurances from sponsors, from entering the United States. A panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit had interpreted a Supreme Court directive this summer to mean that such refugees should be allowed in, but the government objected.
Over the past decade, it has been rare to see the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals issue any ruling that upheld the US Constitution or the constitutional rights of Americans. That court, by far, has the worst record of any federal court in the land. The judges in this court have been using their positions to push their liberal anti-American agenda instead of ruling based upon law and the Constitution.
