The see-saw progress of President Trump’s lawful ban on the travel of citizens from the terrorist-supporting nations of Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen has taken a turn in the White House’s favor.
On December 4, writes the Associated Press, the Supreme Court granted relief from the bench for the President’s ban to go into effect until the case is heard sometime before June.
Seven of the nine Supreme Court Justices ruled in favor of the President, with only crypt-keeper Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor disagreeing with the decision.
The ruling came after the Justice Department filed papers on December 1 asking the court to strike down two federal court preliminary injunctions issued by Hawaii and Maryland that had stopped the ban, reports Breitbart.
United States Attorney General Jeff Sessions released a statement that read:
“This a substantial victory for the safety and security of the American people. We are pleased to have defended this order and heartened that a clear majority Supreme Court has allowed the President’s lawful proclamation protecting our country’s national security to go into full effect. The Constitution gives the President the responsibility and power to protect this country from all threats foreign and domestic, and this order remains vital to accomplishing those goals.”
Of course, that is not how the Left sees it.
A Muslim official with the American Civil Liberties Union’s Immigrants’ Rights Project told the AP that, “President Trump’s anti-Muslim prejudice is no secret. He has repeatedly confirmed it, including just last week on Twitter. It’s unfortunate that the full ban can move forward for now, but this order does not address the merits of our claims,” said Omar Jadwat.
The see-sawing is far from over.
Breitbart states that both the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco and the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia will be once again throwing in their interpretation later this week.
Take some Dramamine everyone. This sickening motion looks to continue.
