Supreme Court Slaps Down 9th Circuit – Trump Travel Ban Given Green Light

989 trump ban

Once again the US Supreme Court has been forced to reiterate that they really meant what they said to the usurping Obama Clinton panelists of judicial activists on the 9th Circuit Court.

On Tuesday the Supreme Court ruled that they meant what they said, that parts of President Trump’s travel ban could remain in effect. They are the parts which provide the protections from terrorism and the national security restrictions, the essence of the executive order.

The ruling temporarily prevents 24,000 potential security threats from entering the nation. In a brief order, the court said it was continuing a stay of a 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that had tried to force Mr. Trump to limit his refugee ban.

In doing so the “refugees” who had been assigned to a resettlement agency but who haven’t yet been admitted to the US can be barred from entry.

Hawaii had earlier asked the Supreme Court to uphold the 9th Circuit’s attempt to gut the efficacy of the executive order, arguing that “refugees” who have had their cases assigned to resettlement agencies meet the definition of a “bona fide” relationship with an entity in the U.S. They attempted unsuccessfully to make the case that the “relationship” qualifies them for an exemption from the ban.

The 9th Circuit ruling had been set to take effect on Tuesday. Justice Anthony Kennedy issued a temporary stay on Monday pending a response from the state of Hawaii. Their response was due by noon Tuesday. Later in the day, the court issued its one-page order blocking the decision indefinitely.

It takes a vote of five justices to grant a stay application.
