Trump “travel ban” ALLOWED by US Supreme Court

As we suspected, there is Fake Law as well as Fake News.

The lower federal courts who consistently and in a clearly-biased fashion continuously overturned President Trump’s so-called “travel ban” from dangerous Middle Eastern countries in order to more closely attempt to vet who is allowed into the United States have had their rulings overturned today — Monday — by the US Supreme Court.


Supreme Court allows President Trump’s travel ban to go fully into effect

  • The Supreme Court is allowing President Donald Trump’s latest travel ban on six Muslim-majority nations to go into effect.
  • Two of the nine justices — Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor — dissented.
  • The ban applies to travelers from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen

The Supreme Court is allowing the Trump administration to fully enforce a ban on travel to the United States by residents of six mostly Muslim countries.

The justices, with two dissenting votes, said Monday that the policy can take full effect even as legal challenges against it make their way through the courts. The action suggests the high court could uphold the latest version of the ban that Trump announced in September.

The ban applies to travelers from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen. Lower courts had said people from those nations with a claim of a “bona fide” relationship with someone in the United States could not be kept out of the country. Grandparents, cousins and other relatives were among those courts said could not be excluded.

What the American Media Maggots will not, trust me, emphasize is that this was a 7 to 2 ruling, meaning that damned near all jurists ruled in favor of the travel ban.

Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor would have left the lower court orders in place.

That means Kennedy, Breyer and Kagan — liberal and swing members — voted in favor of affirming the travel ban. We now know where Ginsburg and Sotomayor side.

Ginsburg was a dissenting vote because it’s what she does. We expect no less. Sotomayor voted as a dissent because she is a supporter of illegals — it’s that simple.

Finally, an indicator that the United States federal judiciary has not gone totally off the rails.




Meaning: with one exception, the US Supreme Court upholds President Trump’s ability to keep some persons from entering the United States. The US Supreme Court has also agreed, 9 to 0, to take up the case and hear arguments in October.

Supreme Court revives Trump travel ban

by Stephen Dinan

The Supreme Court said Monday that most of President Trump’s travel ban executive order can go into effect, delivering the first major victory to the new administration on perhaps his most controversial policy to date.

Wait for it. Wait for it. See the photograph.

Fig.1: Leftist heads exploding across the United States. Again.

The US Supreme Court wrote today, in part:

To begin, we grant both of the government’s petitions for certiorari and consolidate the cases for argument. The clerk is directed to set a briefing schedule that will permit the cases to be heard during the first session of October.

The court also wrote.

We now turn to the preliminary injunctions barring enforcement of the 2C entry suspension. We grant the government’s applications to stay the injunctions. To the extent the injunctions prevent the enforcement of statute 2c with respect to foreign nationals who lack any bonified relationship with a person or entity in the United States.

To continue with a further explanation from the Washington Examiner:

Justices said the lower court rulings that blocked Mr. Trump’s policy were far too broad, and said the president can begin to enforce his ban against foreigners who don’t already have some ties to the U.S.

That means the president can begin denying visas to visitors from six countries — Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — who don’t already have family in the U.S., or some other prior connection such as participation in an education program. Mr. Trump is also free to halt refugee admissions worldwide, with the same exception for people who already have a connection to the U.S.

The justices said Mr. Trump is at the peak of his powers when acting on national security concerns in immigration matters when dealing with people who don’t already have a tie to the U.S.

The court’s ruling was issued in an unsigned unanimous opinion, though Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel A. Alito Jr. and Neil M. Gorsuch said they would have gone further and lifted the entire injunctions.

Let me be blunt. The US Supreme Court has essentially told the 4th and 9th District Courts of Appeal their rulings are illogical — and of course they were. The are, as I termed them, fake law.

Of great import are two points: first, that the Supreme Court held unanimously, 9 to 0, to grant this emergency stay. Then, in the opinion itself, not once was there a reference to there being a “Muslim ban” nor was there one reference to Trump’s campaign rhetoric for an extremely critical reason: it’s not pertinent to the case at hand. Further, Justices Gorsuch, Alito and Thomas all said they would have gone even further, enforcing the ban in full.

This is a massive win for Conservatives and President Trump, and a massive loss for Demorats and Leftists. Gorsuch was a win. This is a win.

More to come.



Can you guess just what the American Media Maggots are NOT covering today? Correct. That would be the US Supreme Court ruling in re Trump’s travel ban.

Gosh. I wonder why.
