BREAKING: Trump Admin Asks Supreme Court to Let Revised Travel Ban Take Effect
The Trump administration asked the Supreme Court late Thursday to let the revised travel ban take effect, Fox News reports.
Via Fox News:
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 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.”
It is definitely within President Trump’s authority to implement a travel ban from countries that breed terrorists. President Trump’s priority is to protect the American people.
TGP previously reported on the Ninth Circuit Court ruling against President Trump back in February, continuing to block his travel ban.
The Ninth Circuit is the most liberal court in the country — and is the most reversed court in the country.
It has now reached the Supreme Court where we have hope since Judge Gorsuch was confirmed.
