On Tuesday, the U.S. Supreme Court officially dismissed the final challenge to President Trump’s executive order on restricting refugees and migrants. The Court officially came to the conclusion that the expiration of a 120-day ban on refugee resettlement ended the controversy.
The order is a huge victory for the Trump administration and also wipes out any adverse lower court rulings that would limit the president’s authority.
The dismissal brings an end to liberals attempt to block Trump’s executive order that was replaced in late September by a new round of travel sanctions against eight countries. Those sanctions are currently under challenges.
Earlier this month the Supreme Court dismissed the first travel ban case that concerned the order’s 90-day ban on the entry of migrants from six countries with high instances of terrorism. The ban’s expiration effectively “mooted” the case, the justices concluded. Which basically means that these liberals put up a big fight for nothing because this was all part of President Trump’s plan to secure our borders and assess the “situation” left behind by Barack Obama.
In each case, the Court wiped out lower court rulings from the 4th and 9th U.S. Circuit Courts of Appeal that tried to claim the President’s order was unlawful.
One Justice, Sonia Sotomayor, did not agree with the court’s judgement in each case, but ultimately agreed that the challenges should be dismissed.
President Trump seems to have a good understanding of how legal proceedings work and obviously he was aware that his original executive order, which guaranteed to secure our borders while he began sorting out the mess that former President Barack Obama left behind, would not successfully be challenged by the lower courts. In the mean time, our business savvy President a new round of travel sanctions against eight different countries.
