Donald Trump appeared stunned that the conservative majority Supreme Court found in his favor about Muslim immigrants and even travelers. Unfortunately, many feel that the court did not rule in favor of American values. Trump’s justice, Neil Gorsuch, paid off big time – especially at this pivotal moment in immigration.
The court ruled 5-4 in favor of the Trump administration’s plan to keep Muslims from entering the U.S. Right after he took office, POTUS banned all people from seven predominately Muslim countries, which stranded crowds in airport holding area.
The lower courts all upheld opposition to the ban, so the president’s administration changed the executive order banning people from predominately Muslim countries to include Venezuela and North Korea. Unfortunately, the current Supreme Court ruled narrowly in Trump’s favor.
Donald Trump shouted out in a tweet after the Supreme Court Decision:
‘SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS TRUMP TRAVEL BAN. Wow!’
Trump called it a “tremendous victory.” Yet, people feared that he will take the Supreme Court ruling to run roughshod over the immigrants on the U.S.-Mexico border.
POTUS’s Zero Tolerance plan originally ripped nursing infants, toddlers, and children from their mothers. Psychologists said that this has already done severe damage to the kids’ psyche, and the blame lies squarely at Trump’s feet.
The man sitting in the Oval Office has seen the justices’ ruling as a green light for continuing his purging of people legally crossing the border. They walked from Central America, legally seeking asylum from certain death.
It was ironic that just yesterday, Trump said, according to The Washington Post:
‘I don’t want judges. I want border security.’
Trump may believe that the Supreme Court ruling will allow him to skip the legal process on the U.S.’s border to Mexico. If so, America is in serious jeopardy of becoming an authoritarian state.
