The 90-day travel ban affects visitors from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. The high court is scheduled to hear arguments about the legality of the travel and refugee bans in October.
It’s about time somebody read the US Constitution and applied it and ruled by what it says, not by what liberals want it to say!
They will probably start protesting now or knocking out Starbucks windows as they throw their tantrums. Either way, President Trump has the authority as Commander-in-chief to look after this country first, over everything else and protect from enemies foreign and domestic and that’s what he’s doing.

US Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy issued a temporary order on Monday allowing the Trump administration to maintain its restrictive policy on refugees for the time being.
The order was in response to the administration’s request for the high court to block a lower court ruling that could allow up to 24,000 refugees to enter the United States.
Kennedy ordered challengers to the administration’s refugee ban to submit written arguments in support of the lower court ruling by midday Tuesday.
The appellate ruling would allow refugees to enter the United States if a resettlement agency in the US had agreed to take them in. The ruling would have taken effect Tuesday without the high court’s intervention and could apply to up to 24,000 refugees.
The administration did not challenge the part of the ruling that applies to a temporary ban on visitors from six mostly Muslim countries. The appeals court ruled that grandparents and cousins of people already in the US cannot be excluded from the country under the travel ban.
The Supreme Court already has weighed in twice on lower court rulings striking down or limiting the travel and refugee bans, though it has to rule on their validity.
Score one small victory for the President’s travel ban from countries with a record of harboring terrorists and having inadequate data on individuals wanting to move here. Unfortunately, a gap in deadlines before the Supreme Court takes up more elements of the issue in October, puts us at significant risk of a run on admission to our country. This is absurd that a country cannot limit who can come here, especially from hotbeds of terrorism.
