Supreme Court: Trump admin can keep travel ban on most refugees

Source: CNN

Washington (CNN)The Supreme Court granted Tuesday a Trump administration request to continue to bar most refugees under its travel ban.

Without comment, the court blocked a federal appeals court ruling from last week that would have exempted refugees who have a contractual commitment from resettlement organizations from the travel ban while the justices consider its legality. The ruling could impact roughly 24,000 people.

The travel ban bars certain people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the US.

The issue concerning the scope of the travel ban has been ricocheting through the courts since last spring when the Supreme Court allowed Trump's ban to go into effect except for those with a "bona fide" relationship to the United States. The order might give hope to supporters of the ban, but it may also simply reflect a desire on the part of the justices to maintain the status quo until the justices can hear the case next month.

4. Reprehensible. One of the most naked power grabs in American history.

Gorsuch is illegitimate, just like the rest of the Trumpf administration.

3. Maybe so...

But only until the indictments start rolling in and the traitorous anarchists get rolled out.

Every act from this administrations should be met with resistance, they will be doing as much damage as they can before they are shown to their jail cells.

5. If Trumpf is guilty of treason, every decision his administration made should be suspended.

Does the Constitution provide for that remedy?

7. Nope.

Congress though has the power to stop him in his tracks but the Repugnants who are in majority control of it lack a spine not to mention compassion, empathy and a moral center.

15. He's not guilty of treason.

He basically can't be charged with treason because we're not at war with anyone. If Congress declares war, and then he gives "aid and comfort" to the country we've declared war on, then we can talk treason.

Yes, yes, I understand he has this whole thing with the Russians, but it's not treason. Stop saying the word treason. It just sounds ridiculous, and makes people not take us seriously.
