So much winning!
Best. Election. Ever.
To be overturned by the dip shit in Hawaii
Its about time somebody gave our side a boost.
Should have been 7-2
CNN is going nuts. Keep referring to it as a MUSLIM ban. Funny to watch.
"Under the Immigration and Nationality Act, foreign nationals seeking entry into the United States undergo a vetting process to ensure that they satisfy the numerous requirements for admission." "The Act also vests the President with authority to restrict the entry of aliens when- ever he finds that their entry would be detrimental to the interests of the United States. 8 U. S. C. §1182(f)."
" Relying on that delegation, the President concluded that it was necessary to impose entry restrictions on nationals of countries that do not share adequate information for an informed entry determination, or that otherwise present national security risks. Presidential Proclamation No. 9645, 82 Fed. Reg. 45161 (2017) (Proclamation)."
"The (Hawaiian) plaintiffs in this litigation, respondents here, challenged the application of those entry restrictions to certain aliens abroad. We now decide whether the President had authority under the Act to issue the Proclamation, and whether the entry policy violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment."
The real story is that it was not 9-0.
This is pathetic.
Ban migrants from Central America - SCOTUS is on our side now !!!
should have been 9-0
we were just discussing that very thing at home ...
the Constitution is quite clear on that authority ... it lies with the President and there are no limits or pre-conditions ...
we were one vote away from the U.S. Constitution being eviscerated by the fascist left ... and that one vote was provided by the people electing Donald J. Trump as our President ...
Breaking: Hawaiian Judge overrules Supreme Court on travel ban
How can Hawaii even appeal this now? The President has the last and final say on what constitutes immigration authority, the SCOTUS has so ruled.
But it should have been 9-0, not 5-4.
There are some few members of SCOTUS who really have no idea of what their job description really involves.
Indeed and this shouldn’t have taken so long.
Still now tired of winning! But it still shows with the 4 votes against that political activism is alive with judges even in the USC even if the Constitution is clear about it.
Hmmmm.....the ban is way overdue but I’m not in favor of any legislation which delegates so much to the Chief Executive
