The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit – the most radical far left of all of our federal appellate circuit courts – has just ruled that the temporary moratorium for 90 days of immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries, including the terrorist-designated state sponsor of terrorism, the Islamic Republic of Iran, is unconstitutional and must be ultimately ruled invalid in ongoing legal proceedings.
While this decision was to be expected, what is most telling is that, even under the Ninth Circuit's reasoning, there are large parts of President Trump's executive order that are clearly constitutional and thus valid, most notably his temporary moratorium on entering the United States for persons who are not citizens or permanent residents. Even the Ninth Circuit was forced to admit that non-citizens and non-permanent residents cannot claim any constitutional rights.
Of course, the leftist Ninth Circuit strained to find ways to effectively invalidate President Trump's entire executive order, throwing the proverbial "baby out with the bathwater." Assisting the three-judge panel with this legal hit on the president and thus endangering the national security of you and your loved ones was an "unholy alliance" of Muslims, the Jewish left, a liberal lower-court judge in Seattle and, of course, the despicable American Civil Liberties Union ("ACLU")
