Supreme Court Upholds Trump Travel Ban
In a 5-4 decision, the United States Supreme Court ruled in favor of President Trump, allowing his “travel ban” executive order to remain in place, noting that it is not a “Muslim ban”. This is a victory for national security, and for the rule of law. There is a 60 year old law on the books, that explicitly grants the POTUS the power to restrict entry to the US of any foreign alien:
Section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952, 8 U.S.C. 1182(f), reads:
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.
With wording that concise, it begs the question: What were the four dissenting Justices thinking?
