    Since officials first reported the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan in late December and the United States imposed a travel ban for those entering from China, Border Patrol agents have detained 333 Chinese nationals attempting to enter the United States illegally, according to Department of Homeland Security data obtained by Fox News. While none have tested positive for the virus, the southern border remains a primary focus of the Trump administration, which sees the area as high risk and a gateway for COVID-19 to spread in the U.S. "We have a unique public health threat posed by individuals arriving unlawfully at...
  • Donald Trump throws coronavirus travel ban into MORE chaos by saying Americans will NOT be allowed back into the country if they test positive and quarantine will be 'enforced' despite Pence insisting all US citizens can come home

    President Trump raised fresh questions surrounding his response to the coronavirus on Thursday by saying that Americans in Europe will be tested for coronavirus before they are allowed to board flights and that they will not be allowed to come home if they test positive. The shocking announcement came after his decision to halt all travel from Europe to the US for 30 days starting from Friday at midnight. During a press conference with the Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar in the Oval Office, Trump said: 'We are not putting them on planes if they test positive. It is going...

    The White House is expected to announce that the U.S. will broaden its European travel ban, adding the United Kingdom and Ireland to its list. Under the restrictions, American citizens, green card holders and others are still allowed to return home to the U.S., but will be funneled to 13 airports and be subjected to health screenings and quarantine orders, according to two people familiar with the plan who spoke on condition of anonymity before the official announcement expected Saturday. …
  • Trump: Constitutional Travel Ban Keeping ISIS Terrorists Out of the U.S.

    Terrorists for the Islamic State (ISIS) will not be returning to the United States thanks to a travel ban that has banned nearly all immigration from a handful of terrorist-ridden counties, President Trump said on Sunday. While announcing that the U.S. Military had captured and killed ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Trump said ISIS terrorists fleeing Syria will not be stepping foot in America, citing his “very effective” travel ban that was found to be constitutional by the Supreme Court last year. “They’re 8,000 miles away,” Trump said. “Now maybe they can get here, but we’ve done very well with...

    The Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld the Trump travel Ban overturning a liberal judge in Hawaii who was playing pretend president. Liberals increasingly are in favor of open borders to anyone who wants to enter the United States. The Supreme Court disagreed with this lunacy on Tuesday. Trump’s travel ban could result in Muslim immigration to the US to be reduced by as much as 21%. It was a typical 5-4 decision. More from The Hill: In a scathing dissent on Tuesday, Sotomayor said the court’s majority, led by Chief Justice John Roberts, blindly accepted the government’s misguided invitation to...

    SupremeCourt.gov ^ | June 26th 2018 | Clarence Thomas
    THOMAS, J., concurring. I join the Court’s opinion, which highlights just a few of the many problems with the plaintiffs’ claims. There are several more. Section 1182(f) does not set forth any judicially enforceable limits that constrain the President. See Webster v. Doe, 486 U. S. 592, 600 (1988). Nor could it, since the President has inherent authority to exclude aliens from the country. See United States ex rel. Knauff v. Shaughnessy, 338 U. S. 537, 542–543 (1950); accord, Sessions v. Dimaya, 584 U. S. ___, ___–___ (2018) (THOMAS, J., dissenting) (slip op., at 13–14). Further, the Establishment Clause does...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R) marked the Supreme Court ruling upholding President Trump’s travel ban by sharing a photo of him with Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. McConnell’s campaign shared the image just minutes after the Supreme Court handed down its 5-4 ruling finding that the ban was constitutional. Gorsuch sided with the majority of justices upholding the ban.

    During arguments at the Supreme Court on Wednesday, the justices seemed, by a narrow margin, to be leaning toward upholding the the third iteration of the Trump travel ban. Justice Anthony Kennedy, who is often the deciding vote in close cases, for example, made repeated comments suggesting that the court does not usually second-guess a president's national security decisions — even in the context of an immigration law that is seen as banning discrimination based on nationality. If the court does decide in favor of the government — a decision is expected in June — it would be a big...

    Washington Post ^ | 04/25/2018 | By Robert Barnes, Ann E. Marimow and Matt Zapotosky
    The conservative majority on the Supreme Court seemed to agree Wednesday that President Trump has the authority to ban immigrants from certain majority-Muslim countries if he thinks that it is necessary to protect the country. Lower courts have struck down each of the three iterations of the president’s travel ban proclamation, the first of which was issued just a week after he took office in January 2017. But the conservative-leaning Supreme Court may be Trump’s best hope, and it gave the administration a boost by allowing the ban to go into effect in December while considering the challenges to it....
  • Richmond-based federal appeals court finds Trump Muslim travel ban unconstitutional - again

    Richmond Times Dispatch ^ | February 15, 2018 | Frank Green
    A divided 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday held as unconstitutional President Donald Trump's anti-terrorist travel ban from eight countries, six of them majority-Muslim with a total population of 150 million. In a 9-4 vote, the Richmond-based court upheld a Maryland district judge's preliminary injunction against the ban taking full effect and ruled that the travel restrictions violate the Constitution's Establishment Clause, which bars the government establishment of a religion. “In sum, the face of the Proclamation, read in the context of President Trump’s official statements, fails to demonstrate a primarily secular purpose. To the objective observer, the...

    Judicial Watch ^ | 12/5/17 | Staff
    Judicial Watch today released two productions (335 pages and 44 pages) of Justice Department (DOJ) documents showing strong support by top DOJ officials for former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates’ refusal to enforce President Trump’s Middle East travel ban executive order. In one email, Andrew Weissmann, one of Robert Mueller’s top prosecutors and formerly the Obama-era Chief of the Justice Department’s Criminal Fraud Section, applauds Yates writing: “I am so proud. And in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respects.” Judicial Watch obtained the documents through a May 2017 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed after the...

    full title: Email from special counsel’s No. 2 shows more anti-Trump bias on Russia probe team A top prosecutor who is now a deputy for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe praised then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates after she was fired in January by President Trump for refusing to defend his controversial travel ban. The email, obtained by Judicial Watch through a federal lawsuit, shows that on the night of Jan. 30, Andrew Weissmann wrote to Yates under the subject line, “I am so proud.” He continued, “And in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respects.”

    I just put some pieces of a puzzle together and as far as I know the only people who know this connection are the guilty scumbags involved! The Obama stooge I refer to is Federal Judge Theodore D. Chuang. Perhaps you remember the name? He’s the second treasonous POS judge who set aside President Trumps immigration order. Not only that but Obama stooge Chuang stonewalled the Congressional Benghazi investigation! What better tool to make sure Congress did not learn about the corrupt uranium dealings of Vadim Mikerin , who was the American mastermind of the Russian collusion deal!
  • US judge blocks latest Trump travel restrictions to the US from eight countries (This again?)

    A federal judge in Hawaii blocked President Donald Trump's latest bid to impose restrictions on citizens from eight countries entering the United States, which had been set to take effect this week. The open-ended ban, announced last month, targeted people from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Chad and North Korea, as well as certain government officials from Venezuela. It was the latest version of a policy that had previously targeted six Muslim-majority countries but had been restricted by the Supreme Court. U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson on Tuesday granted Hawaii's request to temporarily block the federal government from enforcing the...
