The Supreme Court on Monday removed the travel ban executive order case from its schedule for oral arguments.
The lower courts had misapplied the First Amendment and interfered with the president’s constitutional executive power.
As the government says, there is no doubt that this executive order “has been the subject of passionate political debate.”
The Supreme Court took the rare step on Friday of expediting consideration of a major case, rapidly accelerating the schedule for reviewing the Fourth Circuit’s blocking of President Donald Trump’s travel ban executive order.
The First Amendment “cannot be claimed by foreigners on foreign soil.”
It is unlikely that the Trump administration will petition the Supreme Court to review this particular decision, which concerned only the first policy, Executive Order 13769.
President Donald Trump’s revised executive order restricting travel from terrorist safe havens is just as constitutional and legal as his original order.
A county judge in Florida has ruled unconstitutional on Tenth Amendment grounds another of President Donald Trump’s executive orders on immigration, this one concerning federal funding for sanctuary cities.
In the end, having the acting solicitor general argue the case instead of an unprepared lawyer might not have made a difference with this particular Ninth Circuit panel.
After the decision was announced, Trump tweeted, “The security of our nation is at stake.” He is right.
