Default Federal appeals court upholds block on Trump's travel ban

“We’re going to win. We’re going to win so much. We’re going to win at trade, we’re going to win at the border. We’re going to win so much, you’re going to be so sick and tired of winning, you’re going to come to me and go ‘Please, please, we can’t win anymore.’ You’ve heard this one. You’ll say ‘Please, Mr. President, we beg you sir, we don’t want to win anymore. It’s too much. It’s not fair to everybody else.' And I’m going to say ‘I’m sorry, but we’re going to keep winning, winning, winning, We’re going to make America great again.”

A federal appeals court has dealt another blow to President Donald Trump's executive order temporarily restricting travel from six Muslim-majority countries.

The Virginia-based 4th Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday largely upheld a lower court ruling barring the administration from suspending visas from those countries. The Trump administration previously revised the executive order to better hold up to legal scrutiny than an earlier version did.

Trump has insisted that the measure is necessary to prevent possible terrorist attacks and protect national security. But opponents, and courts in previous rulings blocking its enforcement, have cited past statements from Trump and his advisors signaling that it may target Muslims.

The 4th Circuit ruling said it was "unconvinced" that the order "has more to do with national security than it does with effectuating the president's proposed Muslim ban."

Later Thursday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement that the Justice Department "strongly disagrees with the decision" and would "seek review of this case in the United States Supreme Court."

Trump had previously said that the federal government will take the case to the Supreme Court, if necessary.

The White House has insisted that Trump had the authority to issue the order based on the president's powers to limit certain immigrants. The 4th Circuit ruling said that while "Congress granted the president broad power to deny entry to aliens," the "power is not absolute."

A federal judge in Hawaii also halted the order, and the Trump administration is fighting that decision in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

The order affects citizens from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

Judges have had to consider whether to consider only the text of the executive order or take into account Trump's campaign statements about temporarily barring Muslims from entering the country.

Following the ruling, the White House said it is confident that the "executive order to protect the country is fully lawful and ultimately will be upheld by the Judiciary."

"These clearly are very dangerous times and we need every available tool at our disposal to prevent terrorists from entering the United States and committing acts of bloodshed and violence," Michael Short, senior assistant press secretary, said in a statement.

"As Judge Shedd's dissent notes, 'the real losers in this case are the millions of individual Americans whose security is threatened on a daily basis by those who seek to do us harm.'"

Trump has insisted that the measure is necessary to prevent possible terrorist attacks and protect national security.

Quote:
Refugees seeking asylum in the USA from the seven countries listed under President Trump’s controversial travel ban do not pose a significant terrorism threat to the United States, according to an internal Department of Homeland Security memo.

The three-page memo, titled “Citizenship Likely an Unreliable Indicator of Terrorist Threat to the United States” and obtained by the Associated Press, was drafted in response to a White House request and contradicts assertions by the Trump administration that the travel ban was necessary to keep Americans safe.

There isn't a threat based upon national origin from the countries listed, it's a Muslim Travel Ban and Donald Trump is a compulsive liar.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.

No terrorist attacks in the United States from anyone that comes from one of the listed Muslim countries.

No international terrorists attacks in the United States in the last 16 years.

No terrorist threat based upon national origin according to the Department of Homeland Security.

The Visa Waiver Program that lists the countries did not claim that citizens from those countries were a possible threat, it claimed that foreigners that travel to those countries without a visa represent a potential threat.

The US State Department, that issues visas to individuals in the listed countries, has not had any problem in preventing those that represent a potential threat from being granted a visa.

According to law enforcement agencies the primary terrorist threat in the United States is right-wing extremist groups and not Islamic terrorists.

Donald Trump advocates racism, misogyny, xenophobia, and religious intolerance. End of story.

It is obvious that liberals have chosen political correctness over public safety.
