It is becoming increasingly unclear as to who has the power to control our borders.
Despite previous president’s taking the same actions in temporarily banning immigration for the protection of American citizens, there seems to be an all out witch hunt for Donald Trump. Democrats are taking every measure possible to delegitimize Trump’s presidency and the latest push back is nothing different.
The 9th Circuit court, one of the most LIBERAL courts in the nation, might I add, made a ruling on President Trump’s Immigration ban. This will block Trump’s executive order while a lawsuit challenging its constitutionality plays out in court.
SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!

But both Congress and the Supreme Court have made it abundantly clear that the authority to control entry of aliens into the United States lies with the executive branch. Such a decision would then pose a terrifying question: who exactly has authority over our nation’s borders?
That would make a real constitutional crisis – and one with severe national security implications.
Congress has gone to great lengths to make it resoundingly obviously clear that they have delegated the power to “suspend the entry of aliens” to the executive branch. They even wrote it into law:
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 nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.
The Supreme Court, in Knauff v. Shaughnessy, went even further, writing that the power to exclude aliens is inherent to the president’s constitutional authority to lead the nation’s foreign affairs:
The exclusion of aliens is a fundamental act of sovereignty. The right to do so stems not alone from legislative power but is inherent in the executive power to control the foreign affairs of the nation.
Both the legislative and judicial branch have made their intentions clear. A sudden declaration from the 9th Circuit that the president cannot suspend the entry of foreigners into the United States would be a stunning reversal of decades of jurisprudence – and would make it extremely unclear who holds the power to control our borders.
Oh the irony! That the 9th Circuit Court would rule the constitution unconstitutional. And beyond that, the constitution is in place to protect LEGAL CITIZENS of the USA. So how exactly is banning immigration unconstitutional again??
This is just a ploy for liberals to push their agenda.
The truth is plain and clear in this situation, we have courts and Judges who are making decisions based on politics and not the law. This is a biased LEFTIST push against Donald Trump and all Republicans.
These Judges need to be removed and charged with treason! Share this if you agree!
