How President Trump’s Travel Restrictions Defend Our Country

President Trump Signs the NDAA

UPHELD BY THE SUPREME COURT: President Donald J. Trump has secured another historic victory for America’s safety and security in a new ruling by the Supreme Court of the United States.

  • The Supreme Court upheld Presidential Proclamation 9645 in a 5-4 decision, which suspended the entry of foreign nationals into the United States from countries that failed to meet minimum baseline requirements for immigration screening and vetting.
  • It is the President’s sacred duty to take action to ensure that those seeking to enter our country will not harm the American people.
    • The ruling affirms the legality of the President’s actions, and will allow the federal government to ensure the security of the United States.
    • The Supreme Court ruled that the Presidential Proclamation “is squarely within the scope of Presidential authority” and notes that it is “expressly premised on legitimate purposes.”

COMMON SENSE SECURITY STANDARDS: The Presidential Proclamation on enhanced vetting is keeping America safe by ensuring that minimum security and information-sharing standards are met by countries around the world.

  • The Presidential Proclamation is making the United States, and countries around the world, safer by restricting travel from countries that don’t meet minimum security and information-sharing standards.
    • The Proclamation helps ensure that foreign governments provide the United States with the information needed to vet their nationals.
  • After an evaluation of nearly 200 countries, the President imposed travel restrictions on nationals from Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Syria, Venezuela, Yemen, and Somalia.
    • The Presidential Proclamation followed a worldwide review conducted by the Department of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Department of State and other agencies, to assess the information the United States needs to confirm the identity of and the potential security threat posed by individuals seeking to enter the country.
    • As the Supreme Court majority noted, the Proclamation is “limited to countries that were previously designated by Congress or prior administrations as posing national security risks.”
  • On April 10, 2018, travel restrictions on Chad were removed after it met minimum baseline standards, thus allowing the United States to properly vet nationals from Chad.

PROMISE KEPT: The Supreme Court ruling affirms the President’s authority to use enhanced vetting to identify and exclude foreign nationals who pose a threat to our country.

  • The President has repeatedly called for enhanced vetting procedures to ensure that those who pose a threat our country are identified before they enter the United States.

I think President Trump’s decision on travel restrictions is the right choice. It certainly makes me feel a lot safer. He knows what he is doing. God bless President Trump and all who stand strong for him.

Actually, there have been hundreds of terrorist attacks around the world, but leftist news organizations that you watch don’t like reporting on the truth. These countries cannot properly vet people and that’s why there is a travel ban. Tell me, were you this upset when ObaMAO banned all these countries b/c the list comes from him.

Simple question: If you lock your door when you leave for the day, or before you go to bed, It is to protect the ones you love that live there. Same thing as the travel ban.

Simple question: Do you lock your door when you leave for the day, or before you go to bed? It is to protect the ones you love that live behind that locked door. Same thing as a travel ban or immigration.
