This ruling by the court is not the final ruling, the case is still on appeal but the Supremes say the travel ban can stay in effect pending the outcome of the appeal.
Steyn said the ongoing events are an example of the “permanent bureaucracy and the courts ganging up to cripple the executive branch.”
“What an insane situation we’re in,” he said, adding that, by law, Trump has the authority to “ban by proclamation” any group he deems dangerous to any aspect of the nation…
“He could ban all Canadians by proclamation,” he said.
That’s correct. The law states:
Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.
The travel ban should not even be in the courts. The statute is clear and if Obama issued a similar proclamation under the authority of this statute (he did, actually) no court would have accepted a challenge to it. That means our federal judiciary is no longer a system of courts upholding the rule of law. In some areas it’s become a clique of lawyers in black robes acting like gangsters.
I expect that given this ruling by the Supreme Court the next thing the district court judge in Hawaii will do is issue an order dissolving the Supreme Court.
