ELDER PATRIOT – Four liberal judges from Massachusetts, Virginia Brooklyn, and Washington State took the side of ACLU lawyers who argued against President Trump’s executive order imposing restrictions on immigration from seven Muslim-majority nations.
These judges have now become the face of liberals’ collaboration with, and acquiescence to radical Islamic infiltration into our society. They should expect to be slapped down for their judicial overreach.
The hysterical reaction from the media would have people believing that Trump ordered immigration officials to stomp on the civil liberties of Americans rather than ordering them to protect our citizens from those who have sworn to do precisely that.
Trump expected these rulings from the shrinking left-wing social justice warriors and sent Reince Priebus out to say as much on this morning’s talk shows.
Priebus told NBC’s Chuck Todd on ‘Meet The Press’:
“The fact of the matter is that 325,000 people from foreign countries came into the United States yesterday, and 109 people were detained for further questioning. Most of those people were moved out. We’ve got a couple dozen more that remain,” Priebus told Todd. “I would suspect that as long as they are not awful people, they will be moved through today… If they’re folks that shouldn’t be in this country, they’re going to be detained. So we apologize for nothing here.”
Despite the judge’s rulings Trump is undeterred because he knows that those rulings amount to nothing more than temporary stays that won’t withstand the scrutiny of higher courts.
The Supreme Court held, in United States v. Curtiss-Wright (1936), “the very delicate, plenary and exclusive power of the President as the sole organ of the federal government in the field of international relations – a power which does not require as a basis for its exercise an act of Congress.”
Nothing should prove the president’s power in this area with more clarity than Obama’s unilateral decisions to expand immigration, declare amnesty, and even bomb foreign countries to ostensibly keep Americans safe.
In other words, Trump is about to break the back of every liberal’s argument that is based on conferring the same protections on foreigners as are reserved for Americans.
Already today, the ACLU is getting “multiple reports” that federal customs agents are siding with President Trump — and willfully ignoring the Brooklyn judge’s demand that the Muslim travelers not be deported from the nation’s airports.
These enforcement agents are following the orders given to them by their superiors who answer directly to the president. Their willingness to act in defiance of the court indicates just how firm President Trump believes the legal underpinnings of his policy to be.
No matter how hard the left efforts to make this seem like a victory they have come to this gun fight holding a peashooter.
Expect more lawsuits challenging every aspect of Trump’s agenda as they are rolled out. It’s all that they, and the pantywaist politicians who hide behind the robes of these liberal judges, have left.
