    SCOTUS Justice Restores President Trump's Travel Ban

    SCOTUS Justice Restores President Trump's Travel Ban



    Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy has issued a temporary order blocking a 9th Circuit Court of Appeals decision that would have limited President Trump's travel ban.

    The "administrative stay" issued by Kennedy on Monday puts on hold the ruling from the liberal federal appeals court which said the ban wouldn't cover refugees working with U.S. refugee agencies and other refugees "covered by a formal assurance."

    The ruling allows the Trump administration "to exclude most refugees from entering the United States while the Supreme Court considers challenges to its revised travel ban," The New York Times wrote.
    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.
    - Robert J. Hanlon.

    “There is a deeply anti-democratic undercurrent to much of the criticism of the new president, borne aloft by an assumption that democracy is too important to be left to the voters.”

    And if a statue can oppress you, then I submit that you have greater issues. - A West.

    What does it say about these "judges" when the Supreme Court has to slap them down?

    It generally DOESN'T inspire me much about the courts and the law if it can be contorted to mean whatever a judge wants it to mean.

    Even SCOTUS can render horrible decisions.

    Actually I was reading something about THIS - the other day. That we have three branches of government, but that we tend to somehow revere the SCOTUS so much that when they render a decision -
    we somehow give it the force of dogma. You know, truth, once and for all. And that's not why the other two are there. The other two are a check and balance on SCOTUS as well.
    Why is that - why do we think that if SCOTUS decides something, well then, it's a done deal? Can't be messed with?

    The better question is, "What does it say about us"? We elect these judges on local and state levels, and we elect the congresses and presidents that select such judges and those that approve them into office. It's on the collective "us".

    It shouldn't be to slap down activist judges. IMO if a judge gets overturned more than once, he should be removed from the bench.

    Thank goodness there is still some kind of moat in the swamp that
    is protecting US, for now, from the leapfrog liberal crazy people. God bless, America.

    Not to mention Antifa. I wasn't aware until a few days ago that those crazies are rich kids that are attending liberal higher education institutions. What are they thinking? They are not thinking, and have no clue. That is the problem.

    Trump is our moat, for now. God bless, Trump!

    The latest decisions tell me I was right to vote for Donald Trump for President.
