Oh, how liberals rejoiced when one after another federal judges issued ruling blocking President Trump’s temporary immigration travel ban.
For them, the liberal agenda (especially that part about smearing any Republican president) was more important than keeping our borders safe.
But, they failed to fully appreciate who they were taking on.
This past week, Trump reminded all those rebellious judges who’s the boss.
The Department of Justice filed a petition for a writ of certiorari just before midnight on Thursday, asking the Supreme Court of the United States to take up the hotly contested travel ban executive order blocked in the lower courts.
Should the Supreme Court accept the petition for Trump v. International Refugee Assistance Program, the nine justices, including the recently seated Trump appointee Neil Gorsuch, will consider overturning the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit’s injunction blocking enforcement of President Donald Trump’s executive order banning most travel from six majority-Muslim countries. The case will be heard if four of the nine justices agree to take it up.
Trump’s petition to the Supreme Court reminded the justices that it is the president’s right to block immigration if he deems it necessary for national security:
The petition quotes a 1950 Supreme Court case saying, “‘The exclusion of aliens is a fundamental act of sovereignty’ that lies in the ‘legislative power’ and also ‘is inherent in the executive power to control the foreign affairs of the nation.’”
You think liberals lost their minds over the initial travel ban executive order? Just wait and see what happens if the Supreme Court hears this appeal and rules in Trump’s favor!
