A U.S. Court of Appeals in California is allowing President Trump’s travel restrictions to partially take effect.

The Ninth Circuit Court’s ruling allows the government to restrict entry of people from six terror-prone countries as long as those people don’t have any connections to the U.S.

The president’s latest travel restrictions were announced on September 24, and replaced two previous versions blocked by federal courts.

The ruling comes after President Trump demanded stricter vetting following the New York City terrorist attack in late October.

“What we are demanding is merit based immigration,” President Trump stated. “We want people that are going to help our country, we want people that are going to keep our country safe…We don’t want lottery’s where the wrong people are in the lottery and guess what? Who are the suckers that get those people? We want a merit based system.”

The latest restrictions apply to people from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, and Chad.

The White House said the changes will go into effect immediately.

    Wait a second, where was a constitutionalist judge(s) hiding in CA? Did Obama miss some? Or did they say we can’t hide this anymore after the NYC “road rage” incident?

      The Ninth knew they would be overturned by the supreme court if they ruled poorly again so gave it up.

    Actually we don’t need people from any foreign country. They do not adapt to our laws the second they set foot on American soil. The first thing they do is get a liberal lawyer if things do not go their way. This is what we are facing today. And how does extreme vetting work anyone can lie.

  • R A Reed

    Democrats voted liberal activists into the judicial system. They actively dismiss the Constitution before the cases come before them. It is not about the law it is their ideology. Case in point Ruth Ginsberg.

      Ugh! She’s close to death’s door, thank heaven!! ⚖️

    How does extreme vetting even work?

    Not every nation feels they need to spy on their citizens or have extensive data bases.

    • antiliberal00

      Then we should tell these people that we don’t trust them and to stay at home, just like other countries do.

      • landy fincannon

        Of course, there’s nothing to be gained by bring them here.

    • Melissa McShane

      The US has been spying on its citizens for decades and databases are nothing new. Sad thing is this country would rather “extremely vet” its own citizens than non-citizens.

        Personally, I think this can be traced back to FDR’s banking holiday. Everything changed from that day forward. IMHO

    Close the gate after the livestock has left the barn…………..

  • Swampdrainer

    Stricter vetting not only applies to people from the restricted countries mentioned, but also to citizens of all other countries who have visited any of these 6 in the past 3 years.

    Next step, get rid of the bad ones. Send them home.

    Did I hear someone say, “WINNING!” ??

  • Joel Mason

    The Courts do not determine policy, they interpret laws on the books, or, at least supposed to. The Courts are out of control.

    • Fred Jones

      The courts determine the ‘Constitutionality’ of matters. This court determined that it was within the Constitutional rights of the President to make laws and policy on immigration.

      If you’ve ever read the Constitution, you would know that those ARE, expressly, the duties of the President.

      • Hottotrote

        So why do the judges block his presidential rights? And hay the Constitution IS laws on the books. It is time the judicial system started reading them that way instead of saying they don’t matter!

        • Rommsey

          How does this self-proclaimed Constitutional expert (read: Fred Jones) know that Joel Mason hasn’t read the Constitution?

          The courts are overstepping their bounds and Justice is a rarity in this nation anymore. Thank a leftist for that (read: Fred Jones). How do I know he is one? He posts like one.

        • Swampdrainer

          Because some judges are part of the Never-Trump movement.

      • Phil M. Kelley

        Immigration is not expressly mentioned in the Constitution as a presidential power; however, multiple acts of Congress have expressly conferred this power upon the President.

      • brad m

        I’ll have to look again, but I think immigration is a power of Congress which they gave up part of their control to the Executive Branch thru a law. The part dealing with visas and people coming into the country

        • Fred Jones

          by all means look again…

      • Joel Mason

        I am with the President on this too. And, yes, I have read the Constitution many times and it sits here on my desk at all times. Thank you.
