Jihadis invoke Islamic texts and teachings as they maim, mutilate and murder, but the US government cannot ban adherents to this savage ideology because it’s a ….. religion. What a war.
We hold out for the Supreme Court. The idea that it would even be an issue as to whether or not the President can take steps designed to prevent jihad terrorists from entering the country is absurd, and shows how anti-American the left has become.
Here is the plaintiffs’ fourteen-page statement for the case. It’s an illuminating example of how the leftist/Islamic axis works. The power of this cabal is immense. This is the enemy, this is what we are facing. “The Plaintiffs allege that the Proclamation violates the Establishment Clause by disfavoring Muslims.” Jihad terror disfavors non-Muslims. But the Plaintiffs have no proposals on how to deal with that. For them, any number of Americans have to get killed just to ensure we are not “anti-Muslim.” Madness.
“Fourth Circuit Appeals Court Strikes Down Trump’s Travel Ban, Yet Again,” by Ken Klukowski, Breitbart, February 15, 2018:
Yet another federal appeals court has invalidated President Donald Trump’s immigration policy—this time the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, which is currently the most liberal federal appeals court in the nation—though it makes no difference, because the Supreme Court has already agreed to decide this matter once and for all.
The three most liberal federal appeals courts in the nation are the Fourth Circuit, Ninth Circuit, and D.C. Circuit, where Senate Democrats paved the way for President Barack Obama to have the greatest impact. Those courts have predictably voted against the Trump administration on a host of issues.
Immigration is a perfect example. Most of the headlines against President Trump’s immigration actions have come from either the Fourth Circuit or the Ninth Circuit. There have been three iterations of the president’s “extreme vetting”: Executive Order 13769, signed in January; Executive Order 13780, signed in March; and Presidential Proclamation 9645, issued in September.
The first two were temporary measures while formal vetting procedures were being established. The final one—Proclamation 9645—is the permanent policy, invoking the authority Congress conferred upon the president in 8 U.S.C. § 1182(f). It restricts or prohibits immigration into the United States from eight terror-prone nations.
The Fourth Circuit’s decision is an astounding 285 pages, spread among eight different opinions. The actual majority opinion of the court was authored by Chief Judge Roger Gregory.
In sum, the Richmond-based appeals court concludes that Proclamation 9645 violates the Establishment Clause of the Constitution’s First Amendment, because it actually establishes a national religion that excludes Muslims. That is the court’s decision, despite the fact that most Islamic-majority nations on earth are not affected by the policy….
The liberal courts have a hair-trigger sensitivity to Trump’s so-called “anti-Muslim tweets.” And Hamas-CAIR, predictably, is thrilled with the new ruling. They have opposed every counter-terror measure that has ever been proposed or implemented.
“US Islamic Group With Ties To Hamas Rejoices Over Court Challenge To Travel Ban,” by Joshua Gill, Daily Caller, February 15, 2018:
A U.S. Islamic advocacy group suspected of conspiring with Hamas celebrated a federal court’s Thursday ruling against President Donald Trump’s latest travel sanctions.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which the FBI labeled as an “unindicted co-conspirator” with the terrorist group Hamas in 2009, released a statement Thursday celebrating the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling against the latest edition of Trump’s travel sanctions, which CAIR called “Trump’s ‘Muslim ban 3.0.’” CAIR continued its claim that the travel restrictions are part of a white supremacist agenda that specifically targets Muslims, despite the fact that the restriction is not actually a permanent ban and does not include include the two countries that hold one-quarter of the world’s Muslim population.
“The Fourth Circuit’s decision is the latest blow to the Trump administration’s ugly white supremacist agenda,” said CAIR senior litigation attorney Gadeir Abbas.
The 4th Circuit’s ruling against the travel restrictions as unconstitutional will not go into effect, as the Supreme Court has already agreed to decide the issue in the spring and has allowed the Trump administration to enact the travel restrictions, despite the legal challenges levied against it.
The current iteration of Trump’s travel restrictions apply to Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen, which the administration labels high-risk countries due to hostile regimes, internal conflicts or terroristic activities. The circuit court’s majority, however, echoed CAIR’s allegations in its ruling against the travel restrictions, saying that the administration’s justification for the policy was different than its true intent in light of past statements from Trump that the justices interpreted to show an anti-Muslim bias.
“We are pleased that another court has recognized the enduring harm that American Muslims are suffering due to discriminatory and unconstitutional policies put forward by the Trump administration,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad….
