Supreme Court Grants Pres. Trump’s Request to Lift Travel Order Restrictions

The Trump administration is back at the Supreme Court, asking the justices to continue to allow strict enforcement of a temporary ban on refugees from around the world. The Justice Department’s high court filing Monday follows an appeals court ruling last week that would allow refugees to enter the United States if a resettlement agency in the U.S. had agreed to take them in.

The Supreme Court grants President Trump’s request to temporarily lift restrictions on his travel order.

On Monday, the Trump administration asked the court to overrule a recent decision by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to not block refugees who have been guaranteed resettlement in the U.S.

Back in June the Supreme Court upheld the president’s order, blocking travel from six terror-prone countries except for people with a — quote — “bona-fide relationship” with a person in U.S.

The DOJ argued refugees do not have any connection to resettlement agencies, and should be barred from entry.

The Supreme Court will begin hearing arguments in two other travel order cases starting October 10.

  • IGnatius T Foobar

    Very good. Now we need to deport Antifa and other domestic terrorists, not just the illegal aliens.

  • The hurricane-damaged areas in Texas, Georgia, South Carolina, and Florida may provide shoreline areas where illegals from Latin America, and maybe middle east thugs will be able to sneak into the U.S. The BP should be extra vigilant, and the Coast Guard and National Guard people should be watching, too.

  • constitutiononly

    Huh? The Trump administration wants to unblock illegals and “refugees” from coming here? Is journalism dead?

  • Politically Incorrect

    The ninth circuit should be restricted to the edge of the west coast and a 10th circuit established.

  • Sonny Shaw

    Constitutionally the President of the US has the right to control all immigration and even stop all immigration if he thinks it in the interests of the country.

  • ken

    the 9 th court of idiots should be thrown out of this country, bet they wouldn’t want all these people here if they going to live in there house

  • Butthep

    Liberal Judges never think of American safety.

  • Harleyrose

    At what point does the 9th Circuit get shut down?
    I mean, when the USSC has to turn back 90%+ of their nonsense rulings, they have to have a ‘fed up with their stupid shiit’ breaking point!
    If I only got 10% of my invoicing correct every month, I dang sure wouldn’t be the office manager next month!

    • Ray

      You would have to become a meteorologist – LOL

  • REAL AMERICAN

    The congress finds the 9th Circuit helpful in their bid to keep control of the GOP and not let any outsiders like Trump in. Uh-oh …. somebody goofed and Trump DID get it … so now, congress has pulled out all the stops in trying to keep total control of power, even if it means trashing the Constitution and the nation as a whole.

    That is what happens when a citizenry falls asleep and does no keep politicians accountable … the politicians steal the show and make it impossible to to get rid of the politicians short of an outright armed rebellion.

    THANKS, POLITICIANS … ON BOTH SIDES. God bless you, President Trump!

  • Tado

    What does it mean?

  • REAL AMERICAN

    With all the Democratic-led commotion settling down, and the anti-Trump crowd leaving the WH, our president is now settling down to taking care of business the way he should have been able to from the beginning. Look at all he is accomplishing already …. and over seven years left, too! Thank you, God, for President Trump … a man for the people.

  • TooToo

    It’s insane if you get a brilliant President who has to leave after two terms but an insane judge can be there forever !!!

    • Ray

      How true, how sad.

  • Fergus

    The 9th circuit court of appeals really IS messed up. My local county has a similiar Judge who just can’t get things right. The cases he’s been the Judge of have been overturned time and time again. Yet the guy is still on the bench.
    He certainly won’t be a judge anymore with the next election cycle. Hope the same will be true for the ENTIRE 9th circuit court of appeal. Throw ALL those judges out.

    • Phil M. Kelley

      Federal judges are NOT elected.

    • Phil M. Kelley

      Federal judges are NOT elected.

  • Gerry C. Cruz

    I am quite sure the POTUS is frowning at how much unwanted expenses the past months have incurred just processing and reprocessing the veracity of his presidential orders. And he fully knows his mandate will emerge after all. This is the huge crime liberals are committing against the citizenry on a daily basis: WASTING TIME AND HARD-EARNED TAX MONEY.

  • Expat47

    The “separation of powers” just doesn’t apply anymore.

  • 13thGenPatriot

    Liberals are stupid and evil.

    • hobartneck

      Simple yet well stated.

  • Dewster

    And had the 9th circuit just sit down and shut up in the first place, the travel ban would have been over 3 months ago. But nope….. they just have to obstruct and make things more difficult then they have to be.

    • Andrew Moore2

      We used to call that making an azzss of ones self.

  • tedlv

    OANN, please enforce your policy. Thanks.

  • ginjit.dw

    But can the supreme court enforce their ruling? Will the DOJ grow a pair and take legal action when necessary?

    So far we don’t have too much faith left in either.

  • Andrew Davis

    Tie the 9th circus court’s success rate to their pay and benefits package. Every time they get overturned they loose 20 percent from both sides of their package.

    • Old Timer

      One time it was determined that you could get rid of the 9th Circuit by stopping their funding. No pay to them and shut it down. That could work.

      • Bud

        No need. Just abolish the circuit. Congress has that authority.

        • Ray

          But Congress can’t even pass a Republican bill with a Republican majority.

    • Bud

      That would probably be unconstitutional. I believe the Constitution bars in some way reducing the pay of the Supreme Court, but I’m not sure about the lower courts. If I’m mistaken I know someone will be happy to point that out.

      • Andrew Davis

        That may be true for the SCOTUS, but I’m talking about the 9th Circuit Court. Its time to break it up into separate circuits that represent the constituent states more appropriately.

  • CCTexas

    I am glad that sanity has replaced the Clowns in the Ninth Circuit. Now, can anyone explain why we need the Ninth Circuit anyway? Do away with it and layoff the clowns.

    • Commander Balok

      Layoff? Tar & feather the commies and ride them out of town on a rail!

      • CCTexas

        Ok, I am good with that. Just do not stop at the town limits. Get them out of this country and over to France, Germany, Russia or Communist China.

    • tedlv

      Cut the funding.

  • n918wk

    President Trump is still moving forward with his promises with or without the GOP.

    Just got back from a two week road trip. It was sure nice to see America and then we had to head back to California. Can’t wait to get out of this shthoIe.

      So we agree, and disagree.

      so many other places that are better to live without all the libtards.

    Thank you very much for this information and update.

  • n918wk

    Now that FOX has gone liberal, is OAN the last bastion of hope?

    • tedlv

      Could be. I’m still trying to get Dish to offer them. No luck.

      • coolflannelcat

        I have been asking DISH too. Makes me wonder what DISH ownership is like politically.

        • Just Saying-2

          Liberal

        • Bud

          So, if I ever get TV service again it will be necessary to go with DirectTV?

          • coolflannelcat

            Apparently, but check with DISH. Maybe if enough of it make a game changer in choosing a provider, they will add it.

      • JaPatriot

        I have contacted Dish about that also, but to no avail.

    • michiganders

      Fox Business is very good. Lou Dobbs is my fav.

      • coolflannelcat

        Agree.

      • Just Saying-2

        I love Dobbs but refuse to support Fox in any way.

      • Don’t forget about Judge Jeanine too….she’s awesome

    • Steve Ford

      The liberal owners of foxnews didn’t realize he would win even by allowing foxnews to support him. After he got elected they have been slowly changing due to pressure from the other liberals who hate our country.

      • n918wk

        You got it 100% right.

    • Tim

      OAN is nice to watch. It’s not the same stories, regurgitated hour after hour, like on most networks.

  • n918wk

    OAN should allow all comments. Freedom of speech is called freedom for a reason.

    • tedlv

      They should not allow the vicious attack trolls any forum. No site should. They are private companies, and as such may choose to protect their customers from often vicious verbal attacks. Free speech has limits.

      • n918wk

        Freedom of Speech is an individual right. It does not pertain to a bot or corporation and never should. That being said, if we want to curb what an idiot has to say then we are no better than said idiot.

        • tedlv

          BS

          • n918wk

            Be careful what you wish for.

          • FreedomFighter

            You got it all wrong bud. I make the rules for my property. If I say you don’t curse in my house and you think you can get away with doing that, you want to guess what will happen when you try your luck?

          • tedlv

            918 is the most confusing troll I have dealt with. Read its earlier comments, you will nod “ok” like I did. Then it supports verbal assault as free speech that should be protected on a privately owned website. BS.

          • FreedomFighter

            I read the comments. I am still waiting for an answer from him to my question but I think he already knows what I will say so he’s ignoring me.

          • tedlv

            It, not he. Get me? 🙂

          • FreedomFighter

            :)~

          • tedlv

            What do you offer, troll?

        • tedlv

          If someone comes on my property and attacks people there in any way, physically or verbally, they are gone. Same with this subject. Nobody has any right to attack someone else. You’re totally wrong.

        • tedlv

          BS.

        • tedlv

          So if someone comes into your trailer park and starts screaming death threats in your face, it’s okay with you? Free speech, after all.

        • Bud

          Yes, freedom of speech very definitely applies to corporations. For reference please see the Citizens United ruling.

    • I disagree with you. They shouldn’t. It destroys their reputation if they allow trolls to attack and chase people off.

      • n918wk

        Then where is the Freedom of Speech?

        • Not when trolls personally attack an individual and don’t stick to issues. That is something entirely different, however it is happening here.

          • n918wk

            I feel your pain but we must endure the trials and tribulations of the uneducated masses ie: trolls.

          • Not when my parents are attacked. Not when my name is attacked. Not when I am attacked. They want to stick to issues that’s one thing. Outside of that it is something else. A lot of good posters on BB left because of this very issue. What you have left is no conversation of any merit.

          • n918wk

            Unfortunately, that’s the consequences of freedom. The Constitution is full of rights and responsibilities that the vast majority of Americans wouldn’t like but there is nothing better on this planet than what we have. I’ve been to almost every other country on this planet and NOBODY even comes close to our Constitution.

          • I used to be a mod. When you are posting on sites there has to be some semblance of propriety. OANN posted their rules. What needs to happen is that people just follow them. I understand what you are saying, however being verbally assaulted is not someone’s right. Also, they risk being sued by someone over the allowance of that. So, we will have to agree to disagree. I think the conversation about our differences are important but how we get there is too.

          • tedlv

            Personal attacks are not protected by the Constitution.

          • tedlv

            You defend yourself admirably.

          • tedlv

            Sites have the right to set whatever rules they want to. They’re paying for the “airspace”. But you know that.

          • They also need to follow their own rules and ban those who don’t follow them, period.

          • tedlv

            Absolutely.

          • tedlv

            I keep up voting this and other comments you offer. It doesn’t take!

          • ? I see them.

          • tedlv

            The blue up vote marker keeps going away.

          • You might need to refresh your screen.

          • tedlv

            Half the time I do that, the site crashes. Older phone?

          • tedlv

            Good

        • tedlv

          Walk outside and say anything you want to. Send a letter to the editor. If they like your comment, they will publish it. If not, they won’t.

      • Just Saying-2

        That’s exactly what’s happening on Breitbart.

        • I was a regular there. GG took over with his crew.

      • tedlv

        You’re going to get attacked again. I just did. Brace.

    • tedlv

      Ginette has been brutally attacked. There is no way anyone had a right to do that.

    • Bud

      Freedom of Speech applies only when government is involved. OAN is the private sector. That’s why the NFL could shut down the “protests” if it chose to do so, since the football players are at work on their employer’s premises on their employer’s time.

  • MikeyParks

    They also need to rule that the President has the Constitutional right to implement such immigration bans as he sees fit without being questioned by the courts – to keep more of this crapola from happening in the future.

    • tedlv

      He does have that right and responsibility. The liberal court rulings are unconstitutional.

      • 1G25

        Yes, he indeed does have that right and responsibility.

        The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 (Pub.L. 82–414, 66 Stat. 163, enacted June 27, 1952), also known as the McCarran–Walter Act, codified under Title 8 of the United States Code (8 U.S.C. ch. 12), governs immigration to and citizenship in the United States.

    • Legion

      8 U.S. Code § 1182 – Inadmissible aliens

      Allows the President to deny “entry” to “classes of aliens” he
      deems “detrimental to the interests of the United States.”

      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 non-immigrants, or impose on the
      entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.

  • Anationundersiege

    Another liberal nut job got smacked. I think they are getting off on it!!!

  • R A.

    I’ve always wondered about o’Bama traveling around the world, considering he doesn’t even have a valid birth certificate? I think o’Bama is in dire need of some extreme “vetting” once and for all.

    • tedlv

      Don’t you get it yet? Those original birth certificates were both made using color laser printers in the early 60s.

      • R A.

        Mimeographs!!

      • Bud

        What “original birth certificates”? The document Obama presented was computer-generated in layers, and a document scanned into a computer does not have layers.

        • Phil M. Kelley

          Give it a rest!. Obama’s birth certificate is no longer relevant.

        • tedlv

          That’s kinda my point.

    • ibbolton9

      Vetting via rope maybe.

      • REAL AMERICAN

        Did somebody slip and say “tar and feathered”, or was I just hearing something else?

    • IGnatius T Foobar

      1. Obama claims he was born in the United States.
      2. Obama ALWAYS LIES.
      3. Therefore, Obama was not born in the United States.

      With or without the photoshopped joke that he claimed was his long form, it’s pretty clear that he’s an illegal alien. He should be first in line for deportation.

  • KYStargazzer

    The SCOTUS needs to disband the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and yes they have that authority, and in my opinion a duty to do so. They are NOT impartial

    • LB

      SCOTUS does not. But Congress does, with a simple majority. Actually, the entire court system can be completely changed by congress anytime they want, including the make up of the Supreme court. There is no excuse for the mess we have today.

      • KYStargazzer

        The Chief Justice (Roberts) does have that authority, he is whats called an overseer of all the Federal Courts, The Washington Examiner last year had a article about it. If I can find it I’ll post it.

        • LB

          Please do. I’d like to read it. The constitution, though, seems clear, so I am interested in how we get around this: “The judicial Power of the United States, shall be vested in one supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish.”, and this enumerated power of the congress; “To constitute Tribunals inferior to the supreme Court;”

          Thanks

        • Bud

          I believe the Constitution says that courts inferior to the Supreme Court are established by Congress.While the Chief Justice may oversee the federal courts inferior to the Supreme Court as they may exist at any given time I don’t believe he has any voice in the makeup of those courts.

          • KYStargazzer

            I may have read the story wrong last year, but it seems I do remember it saying The GJ of the court has the authority to removes Judges if he or she feels like those Judges are rendering decisions clearly based on ideology and not established law. But I been wrong at least a few times in my life 🙂 Have a good day

          • Phil M. Kelley

            The ONLY way to remove a federal judge is by impeachment in the House and subsequent conviction in the Senate.

      • Bud

        True. The Supreme Court is the only court established by the Supreme Court, but Congress can change its size any time it wishes.

      • A marcus Young

  • Basketcase

    Was there ever a doubt? The ninth circuit is a joke. Go Trump!

    • Joe Caro

      You are correct. Living in Arizona, we call it the “Ninth Circus”. There is work being done to create another appeals court so AZ, NV, NM, & CO won’t be subjected to their lunacy.

      • Bud

        However, won’t the judges on the existing circus–er, circuit simply be divided between the 9th and the new court? If so there may not be any actual improvement.

        • Not if new judges are appointed which the president can do.

          • A marcus Young

            Absolutely. And Congress needs to provide that 9th circus judges be impeached for incompetence.

        • A marcus Young

          No they do not have to be re appointed. They are only permanent appointments for the life of the court the were appointed to.

        • Dieti

          My understanding from reading about this a couple of months ago is that there would be a new court formed, with all new judges and that the 9th would lose some judges.

      • A marcus Young

        We must look into past behavior carefully before selecting replacements.

      • Dieti

        Sorry, but Colorado has enough “lunacy” of its own aside from the Ninth Circus. The lifers of Colorado need to take their state back from the liberal invaders.

      I think these states who sue the President and lose in the SCOTUS should have to pay for the government’s expenses. Cut the funds they get from us taxpayers.
