Justice Department Destroys Case Against Trump Travel Ban

Washington Examiner columnist Byron York shows how President Trump is clearly within the law with his immigration order banning travel from seven countries where terrorist organizations operate. And he indicates part of what is animating the Seattle judge who stayed to order is the judges own opinion on national security matters. From the piece:

James Robart, the U.S. district judge in Washington State, offered little explanation for his decision to stop President Trump’s executive order temporarily suspending non-American entry from seven terror-plagued countries. Robart simply declared his belief that Washington State, which in its lawsuit against Trump argued that the order is both illegal and unconstitutional, would likely win the case when it is tried.

Beginning with the big picture, the Justice Department argued that Robart’s restraining order violates the separation of powers, encroaches on the president’s constitutional and legal authority in the areas of foreign affairs, national security, and immigration, and “second-guesses the president’s national security judgment” about risks faced by the United States.

Indeed, in court last week, Robart suggested that he, Robart, knows as much, or perhaps more, than the president about the current state of the terrorist threat in Yemen, Somalia, Libya, and other violence-plagued countries . . . Perhaps Robart has been briefed by the intelligence community on conditions in Yemen, Somalia, Libya, and the rest. Perhaps Robart has received the President’s Daily Brief. Perhaps not.

  1. Perhaps Judge Robart could point out exactly where in the Constitution where it specifies ANY foreigner has a right to enter the United States.

    • Judge Robart could ask any first-tour Foreign Service Officer working in consular affairs, and they would all tell him that NO foreigner has a “right” to enter the United States under the Constitution. Even a visa doesn’t confer right of entry. What a horse’s a**.

  2. This needs to be fixed ASAP. No judge has the authority to determine what will or will not keep the country safe. If the Republicans cannot get on board and support their President, then they should officially cross the aisle.

    And the Trump people need to shut down the leakers, the talkers and the traitors throughout the important agencies, especially Intell and DOJ.

    • Lawsuits against the Judge and have him thrown out. Why is Trump even bothering with this dumb political Judge hack, Trump should go straight to the Supreme Court, even though the Supreme Court is now part political with Obama’s two women appointees that are dumb as dirt and completely politically motivated for the dem/socialist/communist party.

      • I meant to say there are three political democrat loser women, 2 younger ones, both unattractive and immovable and one very old one, you know who I mean, who just loves abortion, the killing of babies, millions of them since the 1970’s. what an uncivilized country we have turned into since then. And the Supreme Court also loves the idea of abortion. Unbelievable! Murder Inc. but thats ok with all of them.

  3. As we know the prez is clearly has the power to do this. Who do these state libs think they r. Do they get a classified intelligence briefing ? I think not

    • I don’t even know why the President should answer to this rogue Judge? He should just go on and do what he is supposed to do, PROTECT US! Not like Obama, he never did and never would. I would bet that Obama is behind this Judge’s actions and everything else like getting hundreds and thousands to march through facebook, calling them to come on out and march. Obama can get thousands to march, thats true, but there are 350 million people in America and more than half of 350 million, thats a lot of millions, voted for Trump. Obama’s trying to make it look like the whole country is against Trump but as usual, thats FAKE NEWS he gives to CNN, MSNBC, etc. I just want to know because it boggles my mind why two Jews like Schumer and Feinstein want all these Muslims to come here? What kind of Jews are they? They know the Trade Center in New York has been bombed twice, first time 1500 people killed and/or hurt, second time, 3000 people kille!!!! And Schumer and Feinstein know MUSLIM TERRORISTS HAVE ATTACKED US IN FLORIDA, CALIFORNIA, NEW YORK, MIDWEST, BOSTON TOO! AND SCHUMER AND FEINSTEIN KNOW THAT MUSLIM TERRORISTS ATTACK ISRAEL WITH KNIVES AND GUNS EVERY DAY, SO I SAY AGAIN, WHAT KIND OF JEWS ARE SCHUMER AND FEINSTEIN? I’LL TELL YOU WHY THEY WANT MUSLIM TERRORISTS TO COME HERE, ITS FOR THE VOTES KIDS! THEY DON’T GIVE A TINKERS’ DAMN ABOUT OTHER JEWS OR MUSLIMS, THEY JUST WANT THE VOTES BECAUSE THEY KNOW THE DEMOCRAT SOCIALIST/COMMUNIST PARTY HAS SUNK TO ITS LOWEST EVER WITH LOW-CLASS IDIOTS RUNNING AROUND CURSING AND MARCHING AND SCREAMING ABOUT NOTHING. THEY ARE DESPERATE AND THIS IS ALL THEY HAVE, MUSLIM TERRORISTS TO COME HERE IN DROVES. THAT WON’T SAVE THE COMMIE PARTY, AMERICANS DON’T LIKE COMMUNISTS. IF THEY EVER WIN AGAIN, IT WILL BE FROM FRAUD AND THATS WHAT THEY ARE HOPING FOR. DISGUSING POLITICAL MORONS THAT THEY ARE. MCCONNELL IS NO BETTER, NO MONEY FOR FRAUD, HE SAYS, HE’S ALWAYS BEEN A WIMP AND A HALF COMMIE HIMSELF.
