Hours before Pres Trump’s revised travel ban was to take effect Hawaiian federal Judge, obama appointee/ loyalist, Derrick Watson blocked it for the THIRD TIME! “The judge, appointed by former President Barack Obama, said the new restrictions ignore a federal appeals court ruling that found President Donald Trump’s previous ban exceeds the scope of his authority. The latest version ‘plainly discriminates based on nationality in the manner that the 9th Circuit has found antithetical to … the founding principles of this nation,’ Watson wrote.”
Discrimination, if it were true, is irrelevant. As pointed out on this site in Dec 2015, federal law 8 US Code § 1182 grants POTUS the plenary powers to restrict “the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”
In other words, POTUS can restrict the entry of anyone into the US for any reason he or she wants!
NEWSFLASH, anyone who is not a US citizen does not have the right to come to the US anytime they want!
The travel ban is legal, the Supreme Court, upheld the ban in June 2017, yet this obstructionist continues to meddle with issues of national security. Watson is a defining example as to why we not only need term limits for Congress but also the Judiciary branch, from SCOTUS to local courts. We have far too many judges performing a role of political activist rather than upholding the laws on the books. Frankly, no one cares how anyone feels on these issues, the law rules supreme.
Let this be another lesson America that elections have consequences. Watson was appointed after obama won his second term. Do you remember the 2012 election how many of us begged you to vote for Mitt Romney, admitting he wasn’t the best choice, but warned about the dangers obama posed to the judicial appointments? 3 million of you chose to stay home election day, knowing well obama was stacking the courts. WE TOLD YOU SO! This is what happens when you act like a child “I dont like either choice, I’m not gonna vote!” Uh huh good this is what get. How many of you that sat home election day are throwing a fit over Watson’s interference with this nations security? Shame on each and every one of you.
Watson is an example of the Deep State acting out to undermine the Trump administration. Congress should move to impeach him at this point, but don’t hold your breath since they’ve demonstrated repeatedly they’re incompetent. Again, elections have consequences…
