For decades, leftist Democrats have wanted Americans to be more like the Europeans and take a more open-minded, progressive approach to immigration. Meanwhile, citizens in Europe are beginning to understand that there are serious consequences when you open your borders to unvetted refugees. They are paying a heavy price for the Islamization of their countries in the name of compassion, progress and open-mindedness.
These horrific acts of Islamic terror enacted on innocent citizens remind us of why we elected a president who isn’t afraid to say the words, “Islamic terror” or to identify and address the repercussions of inviting unvetted refugees to live freely in our country. It has never been more important to have a proactive president who is willing to take the necessary steps to PREVENT acts of terror instead of reacting to them after the fact…
Late in the day on Thursday, the Trump administration asked the Supreme Court to let the revised travel ban take effect.
The administration filed two emergency applications with the nine Court justices seeking to block two lower court rulings that blocked President Trump’s executive order.
In the filing, the Justice Department argued that the appeals court in Richmond, Va. made several mistakes in ruling against Trump’s travel order.
Sarah Isgur Flores, a Justice Department spokeswoman, said the ban is lawful.
The Justice Department is “confident that President Trump’s executive order is well within his lawful authority to keep the nation safe and protect our communities from terrorism,” Flores said. “The president is not required to admit people from countries that sponsor or shelter terrorism, until he determines that they can be properly vetted and do not pose a security risk to the United States.”
The order barred entry for people from six Muslim majority nations, including Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen for 90 days while the U.S. implements stricter visa screenings.
The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals called the national security concerns an after-the-fact justification for a policy that was “intended to bar Muslims from this country.”
Rights groups that have been fighting the policy in the courts said the justices should not allow the travel and refugee bans to take effect.
“Again and again, our nation’s courts have found that President Trump’s Muslim ban is unconstitutional. We will continue to defend our plaintiffs’ right to live free from fear of discriminatory treatment by the federal government,” said Karen Tumlin, legal director of the National Immigration Law Center. –FOX News
