Why 13 patriotic states stand unified to support Trump's temporary travel ban
By Kevin Fobbs

Even though liberal hand wringing federal and appeals court judges have put up continuous roadblocks to block President Trump's temporary travel ban, he still has millions of supporters who want it done. This includes 13 patriotic states that are standing shoulder to shoulder with the commander-in-chief who is working tirelessly to make America safe again.

One governor and 12 states filed a motion with the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals defending President Donald Trump's revised immigration order according to the Dallas Morning News. This is an essential legal step that is necessary to show Americans that unlike the whiny leftists on the federal court bench who choose to ignore the constitutional right of a president to protect and defend the United States by use of executive action, these elected officials want the executive action upheld.

The legal brief was filed by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton this week and it focused on several key legal points. It emphasized that President Trump does indeed have the constitutional right to make decisions on immigration and its potential impact on national security. In addition the brief states that the federal courts which have previously blocked the president's former temporary immigration order seriously erred in ruling that non-resident aliens have legitimate rights and protections under the U.S. Constitution.

Those plaintiffs who challenged the president's constitutionally legitimate action relied upon the flawed notion that that nonresidents from foreign countries who are still abroad have a right to admission into the United States. Any federal judge that considered this challenge has to have been out of the class on a smoking break when U.S. sovereignty was discussed in U.S. Constitutional law class.

America is not Europe or a member of the European Union. The nation's law is crystal clear, "an unadmitted and nonresident alien" "ha[s] no constitutional right of entry to this country as a nonimmigrant or otherwise." Mandel, 408 U.S. at 762. The "power to admit or exclude aliens is a sovereign prerogative," and aliens seeking admission to the United States request a "privilege." Landon v. Plasencia, 459 U.S. 21, 32 (1982), reported Dallas Morning News.

Consider the fact that the federal judges who have ruled on the president's first and second executive order have relied nearly exclusively on campaign speeches and remarks made and even clarified in the 2016 presidential election by then candidate Trump.

The liberal judges have willingly chosen to ignore the fact that the executive order one and two classifies aliens by nationality – not religion. This is essential, because it is based upon a list of seven nations in the first executive order and now six in the current order that were approved by congress and signed by former President Barack Obama. There were no howls of protest from the lamestream liberal media or from the federal judges who have targeted this president's legal right to protect the nation.

It is not a Muslim ban. In fact, the Obama seven were chosen because of the implied danger they present in not having a legitimate vetting or remotely reliable vetting system. The word Muslim appears nowhere in the executive orders, and according to a Pew Research Center estimate these seven countries only represent 12 percent of the world's Muslim population.

So, hats off to Governor Phil Bryant of Mississippi and the states of Texas, Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Kansas, Louisiana, Montana, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, and West Virginia that are part of this patriotic union of supporters of President Trump. Maybe you should be questioning your state leaders why they are not part of this. Silence is Betrayal.
