The Supreme Court allows Donald Trump to enforce his travel ban

December 4, 2017

  Today the Supreme Court allowed Donald Trump to enforce his travel ban, here is more:

The Supreme Court on Monday allowed the Trump administration to fully enforce a ban on travel to the United States by residents of six mostly Muslim countries.

This is not a final ruling on the travel ban: Challenges to the policy are winding through the federal courts, and the justices themselves ultimately are expected to rule on its legality.

But the action indicates that the high court might eventually approve the latest version of the ban, announced by President Donald Trump in September. Lower courts have continued to find problems with the policy.

  This battle is not over but this is a victory for Donald Trump nevertheless: This basically lifts the injunction placed on the travel ban by the lower courts and allows Donald Trump to enforce the ban while the lawsuits are still being fought in the courts. But, as the block quote alludes to, this could be a preview of how the Supreme Court will rule once the ban makes it to the Supreme Court.

  If the Supreme Court had some of the same concerns as the lower courts it would seem to me they would have not allowed the injunction to be lifted so it seems likely the Supreme Court will eventually rule in Donald Trump’s favor. But still all bets are off, I still remember John Roberts basically rewriting the Obamacare mandate as a tax when it looked like the Supreme Court was going to strike it down so who knows how this will end.

    Truth is stranger than fiction. Having no knowledge or forethought about this issue even being before the SCOA I was fantasizing over the weekend that Obamacare could be relabeled Robertscare. Surely the same people who had the goods on him causing his traitorous decision on Obamacare are still holding that ace in the hole at the ready to blackmail him for his vote against Trump’s travel ban. Could be, who knows.

      I agree, John Roberts is compromised and whatever they are holding over his head is still there. They might allow him to make decisions on his own when it is an issue they are not much concerned with, but on the big issues he cannot be trusted.
