Posted on 09/25/2017 2:09:26 PM PDT by markomalley
The Supreme Court has cancelled an oral argument hearing, scheduled for October 10, about President Trump's travel ban issued by executive order earlier this year.
The hearing was taken off the schedule after the President issued a new ban and restrictions Sunday night, adding additional countries and laying out specific national security requirements for entry into the United States.
Sudan has been dropped from the original travel ban list, while Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, and Somalia remain. Iraq has also been dropped, although increased vetting has been implemented. North Korea, Chad and Venezuela have been added with varying levels of vetting and restrictions for each country. Citizens traveling from North Korea and Venezuela are not affected, only government officials.
Following an extensive review by the Department of Homeland Security, we are taking action today to protect the safety and security of the American people by establishing a minimum security baseline for entry into the United States, Trump said. We cannot afford to continue the failed policies of the past, which present an unacceptable danger to our country. My highest obligation is to ensure the safety and security of the American people, and in issuing this new travel order, I am fulfilling that sacred obligation.
The case surrounding President Trump's authority to ban individuals from entry into the United States will likely continue when new briefs opposing the ban are filed with the Supreme Court. In other words, this is far from over.
Six of President Trump's targeted countries are Muslim. The fact that Trump has added North Korea, with few visitors to the U.S., and a few government officials from Venezuela doesn't obfuscate the real fact that the administration's order is still a Muslim ban. President Trump's original sin of targeting Muslims cannot be cured by throwing other countries onto his enemies list, the ACLU, which opposes the administration, released in a statement.
Sudan should be on the list - isn’t that where the recent church murderer is from?
The 9th will challenge this revised plan, maybe SCOTUS will weigh in on that.
I’d like to see the SCOTUS refuse to honor any rulings from the 9th Circuit Court. In effect, it would for a period of time render it powerless.
Perhaps it could suspend the 9th Circuit Court’s ability to adjudicate law for 18 to 24 months.
When the court promised to get back to Constitutional law, it could be empowered again.
The SCOTUS has to overrule the 9th constantly.
Why do we even need a travel ban? The whole world should know by know that AmeriKa is a terrible place and led by a white supremacist. Why would anyone want to come here? /S
I think he shot himself didn’t he.
actually the way to fix the lower court is by having judges removed if there decisions are reversed to many times by the supreme court. the idea being to stop lower courts from making decisions with the idea of changing the law to suit there political needs.
Yes, Sudanese terrorists have been really numerous over the years. It’s one of the most dangerous countries. I’m afraid he’s making nice to blacks, and avoiding the charge that this travel ban is racist. I suppose one cannot blame him, if it would allow the ban to stand.
I don’t have time to process this. Good news or bad news?
He did it wrong. You’re supposed to make a list of all the infidels you wish to kill, then put your suicide FIRST.
Wouldn’t it be a good idea to include NFL players in the ban?
Yes, but he has been in the US for over 20 years.
Since Venezuela and N. Korea are now on the list, they can’t claim that it’s Islamophobia anymore, not that that will stop them, or that it was ever a legitimate claim.
They were perp-walking him at one point so I believe he’s still alive. No? (there was a pic with a cop walking him on FR)
Trump should issue an executive order that anyone taking a knee during the playing of the national anthem will be put on a No Fly list.
That would put the brakes on this nonsense.
That’s what I told my friends from Texas to avoid having libs move there. Texans should say that Texas is a racist, gun-crazy place and libs wont move there.
Sounds good to me. There are a lot of countries who hates us anyway.
I’m open to any resolution to this problem.
That does sound reasoned.
