President Trump Reacts To Supreme Court Win [VIDEO]
President Trump reacts to the 5-4 ruling from the Supreme Court in favor of the so-called “travel ban”.
SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS TRUMP TRAVEL BAN. Wow!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 26, 2018
Fox News reports:
It was the first significant legal test so far of Trump’s policies and power and could lead to a precedent-setting expansion on the limits of presidential authority, especially within the immigration context.
. . .
A major sticking point for the justices was navigating how much discretion the president really has over immigration. Courts have historically been deferential in this area, and recent presidents from Jimmy Carter to Ronald Reagan to Barack Obama have used it to deny entry to certain refugees and diplomats, including nations such as Iran, Cuba and North Korea. A 1952 federal law — the Immigration and Nationality Act, passed in the midst of a Cold War fear over Communist influence — historically gives the chief executive broad authority It reads in part: “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, 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 nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”
. . .
“The issue before us is not whether to denounce the statements,” wrote Roberts. “It is instead the significance of those statements in reviewing a Presidential directive, neutral on its face, addressing a matter within the core of executive responsibility. In doing so, we must consider not only the statements of a particular President, but also the authority of the Presidency itself.”
. . .
Trump’s first executive order was issued just a week after he took office, and was aimed at seven countries. It triggered chaos and protests across the U.S., as some travelers were stopped from boarding international flights and others detained at airports for hours. Trump modified the order after a federal appeals court refused to allow the ban to be enforced. “This is not about religion — this is about terror and keeping our country safe,” the president said on Jan. 29, 2017. The next version, unveiled weeks later, dropped Iraq from the list of covered countries and made it clear the 90-day ban covering Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen didn’t apply to those travelers who already had valid visas. It also got rid of language that would give priority to religious minorities. Critics said the changes did not erase the legal problems with the ban.
The president has been vindicated, in that his authority to act on immigration through executive action has been preserved. The states suing the federal government argued that the president’s campaign statements belied the racial intent of the policy, when in fact several previous administrations had employed similar policies.

The US Constitution is clear. The President has very broad powers and jurisdiction over immagration and security issues. The Courts have zero powers to intervene and are ruling fiats when doing so while ignoring the Constitution the are sworn to uphold.
The ban on Muslims is not a ban to religion, it is a ban on their Koran. Because they invoke to overthrown the US government by force.
The Dumbascrap Party, aiders and abettors of America’s enemies, is so upset. Says they’re going to take the SCOTUS ruling to a higher court…
Somehow I don’t think God will hear the case, Considering all the atheists in the NWO Marxist (democrat) party I don’t think they would stand much of a chance in front of God anyway.
Looks like theey loose yet anothe one.
I thing the Democratic lawyers who filed these cases, and took them to Supreme Court read the Constitution, or listened to their aides. Somehow I think when they talk of higher court, think of Barack Obama. In the 12 books I own about him (2 he is reputed to have written, which I doubt), when Barack was appointed, or elected to any position from grade school, high school, colleges, then politics, once in position, he immediately started lobbying for next higher position. I think as President, he was lobbying to become GOD, or ALLAH, or possibly a Tribal Chief, where he would have final word on everything. During these years, he had to listen to Michelle, and to Vallery Jarrett. Understand from one report in media, they both are on his case, for not doing more after leaving office. Calling him lazy, and he gets away from them, so he can smoke his pot 3 to 4 times a week. Just what I read, I cannot vouch for that. Bit it does seem to fit.
Love it & absolutely agree‼️‼️
Keep him away from Dem. judges or Dem. appointed judges.Politic judges, thought they weren’t suppose to be one or the other? Well after 3/4 Dem Pres. I guess things change!
I’m not sure how much sway the Democrats are going to have with that “higher” court. They have not been very respectful of it over the last few years.
Thank you Mr. President!
Mr. President I am behind you 1000%!!
NOW ! How about building the ” WALL ” And pushing the IMMIGRATION REFORM BILL !!! And get rid of all the DEPLORABLE DUMMYOCRATS…
That would be the best thing to happen to the REPUBLICAN PARTY,.. And
The COUNTRY and the WORLD !!! And then it would further the PRESIDENT DONALD J.TRUMP’S AGENDA…
We are the deplorables. No such thing in the NWO Marxist (democrat) party
The very same plus more that came out in droves to elect a fellow patriot like Donald Trump as president of the United States of America needs to come out again this November 2018 mid-term election and vote NO on all the anti-American democraps and those democraps disguised as rhinos and yes to all Republicans or any other party besides the anti-American democraps also on all the bought out biased anti-American medias propaganda LIES! The anti-American democraps and medias are taking the United out of United States of America and replacing it with “divided” that is IF, U.S, allows it
Lets do our part and let Congress know we want this WALL!!!… We also need TERM LIMITS!!..This is the biggest problem of all…They have been there TO LONG to be an asset to this country……..DEMORATS!!…..Need a change of ATTITUDE,..that’s why we need other better qualified reps. to help bring this country back together…..
Thank you, thank you President Trump. Also, by enforcing to NOT send any money to the sanctuary states and use it to build the wall is another GREAT idea! Bless you and your family President Trump. My family and I pray for you and them every day and God hears us!! MAGA
Tony Winters, We don’t need Iran to kill us the Democrats are doing that job all on their own.
I just don’t understand how the Democrats can claim that the President of the United States does not have the right, no the obligation to protect this country from foreign threat and like it or not radical islam is a threat. They, Iran in particular, has made it quite clear that they hate us and everything we stand for and they will do whatever it takes to destroy this country. Now I may be a bit too sensitive but I take it very personal when someone says that they want to kill me. I don’t know how the Democrats do things but I usually don’t invite people to my house that want to kill me and my family, it is just a little quirk I have. So thank you Supreme Court and thank you President Trump
It sure makes me smile. Thanks God! ??
Trump is right and he is strong. This is why we put him in office.
A win is a win but I still see some clouds here. First of all, it was a 5-4 decision that should have been 9-0; the language in the law is clear and yet they (the justices) keep talking about “statements” made by the president. They are completely irrelevant, but the fact that the justices seem to have taken this into consideration could pose more problems in the future.
Note: As I type this, it’s all coming out in italics and I can’t seem to change it.
&&& SOOO, SCOTUS Narrowly EXECUTES their So-called
‘unbiased’ Protection of USA. Quite ‘some judges’ on
That Bench, i’d say. hmmm, To the Negatives = GO to the
Countries you support, Adjudicate There. Thank you
Thank you, President Trump, for protecting all Americans at the Borders. These Democrats don’t care at all about the safety of the American people. Apparently, they want the crime and the killing and the drugs to keep coming through our Borders. “The Wall must go up.”
God bless this amazing President! Of the people, for the people, by the people!
Why did anyone need the Supreme Court to tell us what the Constitution and clearly written laws already said? The Supreme Court has become demigods worshiped by Americans and even the President; an oligarchy more powerful than the President or the Congress or state government or people. This must change!
OR AT ALL ‘illegal’ Lines , (W/OUT ‘the WALL’)
STEP INTO a BUS & REMOVED. MEX Will Handle it.__
> POLAND / HUNGARY seem to be ok (so far) in Denying
Merkel/obama/hillary Migrant TROJAN HORSE.
this reply was meant for j bragg.
To D. Roy. ” The Supreme Court has become demigods worshiped by Americans and even the President”. Not sure re that. Most Americans DO NOT Worship SCOTUS as “demi-gods” especially at this Point in Time. Which POTUS Are you talking about???
> WHEN SCOTUS IS STRAIGHT in USA CONSTITUTION , PROTECTING USA CONSTITUTION
then perhaps your statement Could be ‘true’.
Next stop on the Trump train………………….THE WALL!
