How Trump Can Fix His Travel Ban

Locally, an assortment if bigots and xenophobes at Molovinsky Tabernacle Choir has been trying its best to justify just about everything Trump does, even when he's dead wrong. That's pretty much what has been happening nationally, too. Instead of telling him that his assertions about voter fraud are demonstrably false, sycophant Stephen Miller cascaded upon the Sunday shows and pretty much made an idiot out of himself, repeating whoppers about dead people and noncitizens voting.

His supporters let him down and let the country down when they spout this nonsense. It is precisely this attitude that led to a poorly prepared travel ban that will even fail in the Supreme Court because it denied due process to legal permanent residents.

According to Politico,
If there is a single issue where the president feels his aides have let him down, it was the controversial executive order on immigration. The president has complained to at least one person about "how his people didn't give him good advice" on rolling out the travel ban and that he should have waited to sign it instead of "rushing it like they wanted me to." Trump has also wondered why he didn’t have a legal team in place to defend it from challenges.
He's absolutely right, for once. His inner circle actually kept numerous government agencies out of the loop.

A revised travel ban is his best option. Legally, he has nearly unfettered authority to deny refugee status. He went wrong when he attempted to interfere with the rights of legal permanent residents and others with lesser visa statuses. This can be corrected and will withstand judicial scrutiny.

I suppose that Illegal Alien Mexican Woman who voted five times in Texas, that was sent to jail for eight years is just fake news ?

From what I gather, there are two ways to legally enter the United States. One is with an immigrant visa. This is the first step to becoming a lawful permanent. The other way is through various official refugee programs, where people seeking refuge from war zones or other hazardous areas can legally enter the United States to escape death or confinement or similar circumstances.

I don't believe that anyone has a problem with either of those programs. However, the problem lies in foreign aliens in other nations, other than their own, wanting to come to the United States for economic or other reasons. For example, lets take a Syrian family, who escaped to Turkey, or to Italy, or some other nation. Now they want to come to the United States. Those people are not "refugees" sir, as they have found sanctuary in those European nations. They want to come to the United States for economic reasons, or they have a brother here, or some other family members.

Obama, for example, wanted to bring 50,000 "refugees" from Europe, or the infamous swap from Australia here. They aren't refugees, as they have found a safe sanctuary outside of the war zone in other nations.

Those individuals are immigrants, not refugees, and they need to be processed by our immigration service, and wait in line like immigrants from Australia, or Brazil, or any other nation that we accept immigrants from.

Also, an individual here in the United States as a "refugee", goes back to their nation of origin when the crisis there is over. They are not on any path to becoming a permanent resident if they are in refugee status. They are here in the United States temporarily, not permanently.

If they want to stay here, then they need to apply for an immigration visa once they return to their home country. Not just stay here indefinitely, long after the crisis in their home nation is over.

I guess the ultra liberal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, housed in that ultra liberal San Francisco, CA, who has the highest cases overturned [86%], is now formulating U.S. immigration policy. Those three idiot judges, who can't read the constitution or understand it, can now be blamed for any terrorist's infiltration. If overturned on appeal, they should be tried for treason.

How many times did Obama issue unconstitutional Executive Orders letting Illegal Ailens stat in the United States?

Where were the rioters in the streets like the leftist nuts that are demonstrating now that Trump is restoring the rule of law, rather than the rule of ONE as we had with Obama ?

You do't take one piece of anecdotal evidence and use it to extrapolate widespread voter fraudwith 2-3 million voters.. That is sheer nonsense.

"Those three idiot judges, who can't read the constitution or understand it, can now be blamed for any terrorist's infiltration. If overturned on appeal, they should be tried for treason."

Though most if their opinion is wrong, they nailed Trump on the one issue where he was dead wrong. Due process. So perhaps you should try Trump for treason while you are collecting up judges. This is flat out authoritarianism.

The Trumpkins are out in force I see. The man has mental issues. Most saw it before he was elected. Many who voted for him are beginning to realize it. Then there are those that will remain ever loyal, as long as they feel emboldened to come out of their hate closet.

Repeal ACA and replace in first week or two.

Post election results: must be his hair got in his eyes or his pussy conquest are affecting his judgment.

The 9th Circus is an embarrassment. Most people who do their jobs as poorly as the 9th would get fired. And some wonder why lawyers are so despised. Trump stated Friday he'll sign a revised order that will nonetheless be challenged and defeated - as is done routinely to poorly written opinions from the 9th. I can't decide who's a bigger joke: Trump or the 9th. It's very close.

09:13 It should be noted that the Attorney General of Kansas, when interviewed about the Illegal Alien in Texas said he had 15,000 oebdubgcases of multiple voting from multiple voter registrations in Kansas as well as Illegal Aliens voting in elections.

Now if Kansas has 15,000 pending cases, and Kansas is a small state in terms of population, just how many cases could be found in California, Texas, Pennsylvania, New York and other states with much larger populations. And before you say, well, it's just ONE CASE, the fact is that it's never just ONE CASE, it's MANY CASES.

Also, why doesn't Pennsylvania require proof of United States Citizenship when you register to vote? Also why isn't the commonwealth's voter registration lists statewide so multiple registrations in different counties or precincts can be ddtected.

I know, all of this is fantasy. Well I'm sure that Illegal Alien in Texas in jail for eight years isn't a fantasy.

try
http://moritzlaw.osu.edu/electionlaw/litigation/documents/FirstAmendedComplaint031716.pdf

" Defendant Secretary Kobach’s office issued a report asserting that there was a total
of sixteen potential noncitizen voter registrations and five votes allegedly cast by noncitizens in
the fourteen-year period from 1997 through 2010; none of those resulted in a criminal
prosecution, much less a finding by a court of unlawful activity. There are approximately 1.7
million registered voters in Kansas.22 Taking the total number of alleged cases of noncitizen
registration or voting reported by the Secretary of State in 2011 at face value, the percentage of
illegal, noncitizen registrations would account for 0.0009 percent of the total number of
registered voters in Kansas"

so the multiple voting myth does not hold water.
Kansas tried to keep Americans from voting.

Refugees are not immigrants, Mr. O'Hare. They're only SUPPOSED to be here temporarily, and they don't have a right to go "refuge hunting" country to country. Once they're safely out of personal danger, they're not entitled to refugee status if they want to come to the United States. Then they have to apply for an immigration visa.

Also, why should the United States feel obligated to accept them if they have safety ("Refuge") in other countries ? What President Trump needs to do is to make the entry ban movement specific, rather than country specific. Since Radical Islam is at war with us, so we need to ban radical Islamists and supporters of radical Islam from entry. And if we don't have a background on the individual when they apply, we error on the side of saftey and not allow them into our nation.

Suggested definition of radical islam: anyone who want to compel sharia law on the host country's muslims or favors violent jihad as a way to settle international disputes.

President Trump's purpose is, by preventing enemy soldiers and their cultural supporters from entering the U.S., to insure domestic tranquility

Title 8 United States Code, section 1182(f): "Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate."


Presumably, those judges who cavil at President Trump's ban on immigration from selected countries are derelict in their duty to know the law or are exceeding their authority by pretending not to understand it.

Bernie O'Hare said...

The US Constitution also says that no person shall be "deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law." Once a person attains a legal permanent resident status, he is entitled to due process. Donald Trump does not get to turn that provision of the Constitution on or off at his pleasure. I agree he can deny refugee status and can prepare an EO that complies with the Constitution,. Why not have him do that instead of uttering bullshit?

Trump is the best thing to happen to this country exposing our every weakness it's wonderful.

In America, a 47 story steal frame building can fall into it's footprint, in free fall speed, because of a few small fires.

If that's true, anything Trump says can be true too.

Falsehoods are perpetuated all the time. I see no change in sight.
