Supreme Court: Trump admin can keep travel ban on most refugees
CNN ^ | Sept. 12, 2017 | Ariane de Vogue

The Supreme Court granted Tuesday a Trump administration request to continue to bar most refugees under its travel ban.

Without comment, the court blocked a federal appeals court ruling from last week that would have exempted refugees who have a contractual commitment from resettlement organizations from the travel ban while the justices consider its legality. The ruling could impact roughly 24,000 people.

The travel ban bars certain people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the US.

Can we all agree: "Trump’s order is NOT a 'TRAVEL BAN'. It is an INVASION BAN order.

This issue is not "travel". The issue is invasion. This is a most basic constitutional issue that mandates the federal government stop invasion.

The United States...shall protect each [state] against invasion
U.S. Const. art. IV, sec. 4.

Trump's argument is first and foremost a Constitutional argument, not a federal statute argument. Illegal immigration and immigration of our enemies are INVASION which the Constitution specifically mandates the federal government to prevent. Don't repeat the Lying Leftists Labels. This and related articles should be posted as an Invasion Ban Order.

It’s fine that SCOTUS apparently agreed with this constitutional mandate that Trump is enforcing, but either way, Trump should be (and I think is) proceeding on the basis of the Rule of law of the Constitution which is the Supreme Law of the Land over the federal government including the courts and SCOTUS (U.S. Const. art. VI, cl. 4).

ABC News Radio made no mention of this SC ruling at the top of the hour. Yet when the 9th Circus ruled against Trump, ABC mentions it non-stop. ABC = Always Biased Coverage.

I wish Trump just told the court from the get go, to get bent. Instructed all the border ppl to turn everyone around from those countries. Who’s in charge of that part of govt, the 9th circus or the prez? Seriously, when do 5 out of 9 black robes get to invent laws out of thin air?

5 judges seem to be assigning constitutional weight to congress’ legislative authority and the potus’ executive authority. That’s a refreshing change.

Well, I'm glad the supreme court "ruled" that the president has the constitutional authority to decide who may and may not enter the country.

“The ruling could impact roughly 24,000 people.”

Perhaps if the Clinton administration had considered a better policy than open door, around 4500 people, and some still, wouldn’t have died as a result of 911. We know that over 1000 people have died from the inhaling of debris since the initial attack.

Innocents inconvenienced, or killed. Real choice here.

24,000 people that have absolutely no right to step foot in these U.S.A.

“24,000 people that have absolutely no right to step foot in these U.S.A.”

My only concern is who have the, so called, refugees contracted with. There has been a steady run of questionable immigrants being brought in by everyone from adoption agencies to religious organization. Some military personnel adopt and marry downrange and wish to bring their families back that this could effect.

But probably the biggest “user” of the previous laws was the Obama’s federal government starting in 2009, I believe. The H-1b visa program is the perfect example. In 2016, the federal government filled over 85K job slots in the US tech world by fast tracking persons from India into the country based upon a no cap status. In other words, they were given preference over anyone else and their families were allowed to come here, green carded, and given jobs over American citizens hired by the employers. And to take it a step further, taking advantage of the lack of a cap for H1-B visas issued to educational institutions, the University of Massachusetts began a program in 2014 that allows entrepreneurs to found U.S. companies while fulfilling visa requirements by teaching and mentoring on campus, with the university as sponsoring employer. So future jobs that could be handled by US citizens still in college or trying to promote, are being taken by immigrants prior to even being trained. And you and I are footing the bill for their education.

Another “back door” way for Obama to cheat the system and screw the country.

He’s over, as a politician. Nowhere to go after being POTUS except writing lies and calling them memoirs, and whoring for speaking fees. The activists who want to hold the gates open for unlimited immigration, however, have a base of support, and contributors, and they can’t just go hog wild. They can attack POTUS, individual Congressmen or both houses, states, states’ rights, Americans who are opposed to them, but not SCOTUS. The checks could stop coming, except from Soros, who, if they’re solely dependent on him, will transform them into Igor to his Doctor Frankenstein.
