  • White House considering dramatic expansion of travel ban

    01/10/2020 1:31:47 PM PST · by SpeedyInTexas · 54 replies
    he White House is considering dramatically expanding its much-litigated travel ban to additional countries amid a renewed election-year focus on immigration by President Donald Trump, according to six people familiar with the deliberations. A document outlining the plans — timed to coincide with the third anniversary of Trump’s January 2017 executive order — has been circulating the White House. But the countries that would be affected are blacked out, according to two of the people, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the measure has yet to be finalized.
  • Trump: Constitutional Travel Ban Keeping ISIS Terrorists Out of the U.S.

    Terrorists for the Islamic State (ISIS) will not be returning to the United States thanks to a travel ban that has banned nearly all immigration from a handful of terrorist-ridden counties, President Trump said on Sunday. While announcing that the U.S. Military had captured and killed ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Trump said ISIS terrorists fleeing Syria will not be stepping foot in America, citing his “very effective” travel ban that was found to be constitutional by the Supreme Court last year. “They’re 8,000 miles away,” Trump said. “Now maybe they can get here, but we’ve done very well with...

    Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), seizing the opportunity, hilariously pointed out something that the California government might have missed: their ban would impede the chances of their own senator, Kamala Harris, from traveling to the state that is the first nominating contest in the Democratic Party presidential primaries. He tweeted, "Wow, California's ban on travel to Iowa's really gonna hamstring Kamala Harris's presidential campaign."
  • California adds Iowa to 'travel ban' over refusal to fund gender transitions

    California announced last week that it has added Iowa to the list of states on its ever-expanding “travel ban” list because of that state’s new prohibition against funding gender-transition surgeries under Medicaid. The announcement by state Attorney General Xavier Becerra means that as of Oct. 4, California will no longer offer taxpayer-funded trips to Iowa for any public employee or student at a state-run university. Becerra’s authority came from a 2016 California law signed by then-Gov. Jerry Brown that bars state-funded travel to other states that undercut LGBT rights. The blacklist already included Alabama, Kentucky, North Carolina, Texas, Oklahoma and...

    The Trump administration is actively investigating imposing a travel ban against Guatemala unless the Central American nation takes significant steps to curb illegal migration northward. Trump charged Guatemala with backing out on an immigration deal with the United States. "If Guatemala doesn't take significant action to help protect our borders, then we will, of course, look at all manner of solutions to the serious crisis we face," a White House official told NPR, "whether it's a travel ban, significant actions on remittances and/or tariffs." ...Trump said Wednesday that the United States was planning to take "severe" action against the government...

    Newly released data from the State Department reveals that Trump’s constitutional travel ban on eight foreign countries, designated as either dangerous or sponsors of terrorism, has warranted big results. The travel ban, State Department data finds, has reduced legal immigration from the eight foreign countries by about 80 percent, compared to 2016 when the ban had not been implemented yet. Six of the eight countries included in Trump’s travel ban have either sponsored Islamic terrorism in the past or have major issues with terrorism.

    WASHINGTON—Days after the Trump administration instituted a controversial travel ban in January 2017, Google employees discussed how they could tweak the company’s search-related functions to show users how to contribute to pro-immigration organizations and contact lawmakers and government agencies, according to internal company emails. The email traffic, reviewed by The Wall Street Journal, shows that employees proposed ways to “leverage” search functions and take steps to counter what they considered to be “islamophobic, algorithmically biased results from search terms ‘Islam’, ‘Muslim’, ’Iran’, etc.” and “prejudiced, algorithmically biased search results from search terms `Mexico’, `Hispanic’, `Latino’, etc.”

    One of the interesting side effects of the reflexive opposition to Trump that has flooded many parts of the political spectrum is that even when he’s right, it becomes a badge of honor to oppose him. Case in point: the revocation of John Brennan’s security clearance. “National defense conservatives” are literally squirting their drawers in defense of Brennan’s First Amendment right to be able to discuss classified information for profit. Perhaps the most odious example of this was opposition to his executive order restricting travel from a small number of failed states and from one state sponsor of terrorism (Iran)....

    Hawaii is dropping its legal fight against President Donald Trump’s travel ban on citizens from several mostly Muslim countries after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the policy. The state attorney general’s office voluntarily dismissed the case Monday. Lt. Gov. Doug Chin sued to stop the travel ban from taking effect when he was attorney general last year. “Although we were disappointed by the United States Supreme Court’s decision upholding President Trump’s third travel ban,” current Attorney General Russell Suzuki...

Getting the Supreme Court Back on Track We are pleased that Justice Kennedy’s retirement from the Supreme Court will provide President Trump another opportunity to nominate a constitutional conservative who will honor the Constitution and the rule of law, rather than legislate from the bench.

    The Boston Herald ^ | 06-27-2018 | Herald Staff
    President Trump enjoyed his first big legal victory and a huge political win yesterday when the Supreme Court upheld his travel ban in a 5-4 decision. This is a positive development for the security of the country as well as a reaffirmation of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952, which gives the president extensive power to deny entry of people into the United States. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts rejected challengers’ claims of anti-Muslim bias in the ban, though the reason for many Americans’ concerns is understandable. Candidate Trump was direct in his phrasing of the issue on...

    I know that the trending topic of the day is the upcoming civil war in America, which would be fought presumably by millennials living in their parents’ basements, led by Geriatric Generals “Auntie” Maxine Waters and Nancy “What Year is This” Pelosi, against 4chan meme-creators led by Field-Marshall Alex “They Turned the Darn Frogs Gay” Jones (famous for his battle cry “The Answer to 1984 is $20 in the Infowars Store”) on the battlefields of the interwebz. If you ask me, it looks like the “Kekistani soldiers” are already winning by a landslide, hence I’d prefer to ignore this stupid...

    MSNBC’s Steve Schmidt––who recently left the Republican party––decried the Supreme Court decision upholding President Trump‘s travel ban. Nicolle Wallace talked with her panel about the SCOTUS decision, looking back at how we got from the originally-proposed Muslim ban to here. She said, “I remember people in the intelligence community saying to me, ‘Who do you think we rely on the most in the countries that could represent the greatest geopolitical threats from us?'” Former FBI assistant director for counterintelligence Frank Figliuzzi said that today “we became a little bit less of that shining city on a hill” into a country...

    Hawaii leaders are weighing in on the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on Tuesday to uphold President Donald Trump’s travel ban, a policy that put the state at the forefront of a months-long legal challenge. Lt. Gov. Doug Chin, who led Hawaii’s challenge against the travel ban when he served as attorney general, issued a statement saying, “I hurt today for Hawaii families and others who have experienced discrimination and scapegoating due to President Trump's bullying remarks and orders.” Current Attorney General Russell Suzuki agreed and added that the office continues to believe that the travel ban is "unconstitutional."

    The Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld the Trump travel Ban overturning a liberal judge in Hawaii who was playing pretend president. Liberals increasingly are in favor of open borders to anyone who wants to enter the United States. The Supreme Court disagreed with this lunacy on Tuesday. Trump’s travel ban could result in Muslim immigration to the US to be reduced by as much as 21%. It was a typical 5-4 decision. More from The Hill: In a scathing dissent on Tuesday, Sotomayor said the court’s majority, led by Chief Justice John Roberts, blindly accepted the government’s misguided invitation to...
  • Justice Thomas' Concurring Opinion in Donald Trump v. Hawaii

    THOMAS, J., concurring. I join the Court’s opinion, which highlights just a few of the many problems with the plaintiffs’ claims. There are several more. Section 1182(f) does not set forth any judicially enforceable limits that constrain the President. See Webster v. Doe, 486 U. S. 592, 600 (1988). Nor could it, since the President has inherent authority to exclude aliens from the country. See United States ex rel. Knauff v. Shaughnessy, 338 U. S. 537, 542–543 (1950); accord, Sessions v. Dimaya, 584 U. S. ___, ___–___ (2018) (THOMAS, J., dissenting) (slip op., at 13–14). Further, the Establishment Clause does...

    Rep. Keith Ellison and the Council of America-Islamic Relations (CAIR) are quickly reacting after the Supreme Court voted to uphold President Trump’s travel ban Tuesday. The 5-4 decision Tuesday is the court’s first substantive ruling on a Trump administration policy. Trump tweeted “Wow!” after the decision. Not long after the decision, CAIR, which is the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, announced it will be holding a news conference at 11:15 a.m. Tuesday. There will also be a rally at 6 p.m. held in Minneapolis in front of the federal court house, protesting the decision. Rep. Keith Ellison...

Gorsuch sided with the majority of justices upholding the ban.
