Homeland Security suspends travel ban
President Donald Trump’s government moved swiftly Saturday to comply with a federal judge’s order halting his travel ban — even as Trump himself denounced the judge — but readied its legal defense of the controversial executive action.
Being as simple and as basic as I know how to be there isn’t anything controversial about President Trump’s “travel ban.” However, I will be the first to readily admit that our President Donald A. Trump, is seemingly getting the wrong end on just about every change that he is trying to make through his own party members, the opposition left, liberal, or Democrat Party members.
In reality, it seems as though he’s damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t. My hope is that we have elected a morally sound person with high values who does not have sensitive skin. Furthermore, my hope beyond all hope is that one-day ⸻ soon ⸻ he will get the cabinet members he has nominated and that democrats will straighten out and at the very least, try and be civil.
During the summer I wrote several articles that involved usurpation. I felt it was a great idea insofar as the former president Barack Obama completely overstepped his parameters as far as separation of powers, as well as the Constitutional law of balance of powers. Usurpation is derived from the word usurp that Merriam-Webster dictionary defines as to seize and hold (as office, place, or powers) in possession by force or without right: to take the place of by or as if by force: to seize or exercise authority or possession wrongfully. The matters and consequences of usurpation are fundamentally a branch of the government (executive, legislative, judicial) wandering into an area out of their expertise and take on the full power of the person or people that they have usurped.
In American history much usurpation has come at the hands of the judiciary; what is meant by this is that the U.S. Supreme Court has legislated far too often for Congress to even matter. This is exactly the same as when former president Barack Obama went on a public speaking engagement tour espousing, “I can’t work with this Congress” or better still when he vividly proclaimed that his executive orders concerning amnesty and DACA/DAPA and the “right to demand that 5 million immigrants and illegal’s be allowed to enter and remain in the country. Obama espoused, “I can’t make the law” at least 22 times before he signed an executive order and then stating “I just made a new law.”
The Department of Homeland Security announced it has suspended all actions to implement the immigration order and will resume standard inspections of travelers as it did prior to the signing of the travel ban. But it said the Justice Department — which is expected to file an emergency motion to stop the order — needed to challenge the ruling “at the earliest possible time.”
“(Trump’s order) is intended to protect the homeland and the American people, and the President has no higher duty and responsibility than to do so,” acting DHS press secretary Gillian Christensen said when announcing the suspension.
It is that sentence above that thwarts the Presidency’s intention thus allowing the Ninth Circuit Court to enter in and begin usurping the number one job of our Commander-in-Chief.
For ANY PERSON: Where is there a Constitutional reference regarding sanctuary cities? Or better yet is there a Constitutional reference that says anything about the U.S. importing people for immigration?
Trump’s order bars citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries — Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen — from entering the US for 90 days, all refugees for 120 days and indefinitely halts refugees from Syria.
