President Trump has issued two Executive Orders directing a temporary halt to immigration from certain countries. Both of these orders have been challenged in federal court and have been stayed by activist federal judges using the flimsy pretext that these EO’s are an abridgment of the immigrant’s constitutional right to religious freedom.
Forget for a moment that the subjects of these EO’s aren’t American citizens, therefore are not entitled to protections under our Constitution, and focus instead on the functional result of such a brazen attack on the separation of powers. The basis for these orders is not religion, but rather the lack of functioning governments in these nations from whom we can gather sufficient information to adequately vet their emigres.
President Trump correctly believes that it is his duty to prevent the wrong-headed importation of our own destruction.
