This is a powerful article detailing why President Trump should ignore an unconstitutional court order, and how he will get away with it. The writer details the court’s power grab and what will happen to the Presidency if this order is allowed to stand. Rule number one is amazing. The court has no power to enforce their ruling. Only Congress can do that. Is this the fight to pick? Read on and decide for yourself.
As Written By Ed Straker for American Thinker:
The federal courts are making a power grab early in President Trump’s term. Trump’s executive order, a temporary entry ban from seven dangerous countries, was modest in scope and had ample precedent: Barack Obama had temporarily stopped immigration from Iraq, and Jimmy Carter from Iran. Historically, the president has been given a wide latitude when it comes to matters of national security, and the decision of whom to let into our country is clearly a national security matter.
And yet Judge James Robart made a radical move to reopen our borders to all these people from chaotic, ISIS-infested places like Iraq, Yemen, and Syria, potentially putting American lives in danger. President Trump is appealing, but it will take a while for the appeal to wind its way through the Ninth Circuit and probably the Supreme Court.
Judge Robart’s reason is totally nonsensical: that the people of Washington state and Minnesota will suffer if people from Sudan and Yemen aren’t allowed to enter the country. The exact opposite is true.
That’s why President Trump should label this decision an illegitimate, unconstitutional power grab and disregard it. He can continue to appeal it but make it clear that he is not going to comply with the restraining order, even temporarily.
Because, win or lose, the matter will not stop here. Trump’s executive order is mild. He’s going to have to issue a lot of much more substantive orders in the months to come. If Trump gives in to the politicized judiciary on this, they will smell blood in the water and challenge his later decisions.
