In a major victory for the POTUS, the US Supreme Court just put President Trump’s travel ban back in place, meaning that the now famous executive order will go back into full and immediate effect, after the SCOTUS stayed 2 lower courts injunctions earlier on Monday.
This ruling is about President Trump’s latest version of the travel ban, and we’re talking about the September proclamation which forbids entry of foreign nationals in the US from 7 countries, including Iran, Chad, Libya, Venezuela, North Korea and Yemen. The vote for allowing the travel ban was 7-2, with justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg noting their dissent from the SCOTUS decision. Ginsburg and Sotomayor wouldn’t know what’s unconstitutional, if they attended the Constitutional convention. And Ginsburg might have.
President Trump’s Department of Justice asked the SCOTUS justices to lift previous injunctions made by lower courts ( International Refugee Assistance Project v. Trump in the Fourth Circuit and Hawaii v. Trump in the Ninth Circuit)which barred the enforcement of the travel ban while legal challenges were adjudicated by the courts.
AG Jeff Sessions has said about Monday’s ruling:
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.
The Supreme Court decision once again overturns “the nutty Ninth” — the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals — showing that they are, well, nothing more than the 9th Circus.
And here’s some advice from Ann Coulter:
Hey GOP! Want to do something POPULAR for once? Impeach the judges who tried to block the president from doing his job.
SUPREMES ALLOW FULL TRAVEL BAN
