Supreme Court Reinstates Most of Trump Travel Ban

As he predicted, President Trump’s travel ban is now in place thanks to a Supreme Court ruling earlier today.

Fox News coverage of the ruling is concise and clear.

After successive rulings by numerous federal courts against President Trump’s controversial travel ban, the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday delivered what Trump is touting as a clear victory – allowing most of the policy to be enforced and teeing up a high-stakes court battle for the fall in which the administration may have the upper hand.

Monday’s ruling effectively allows part of Trump’s executive order to go into effect, including a 90-day ban on people entering the United States from six mostly-Muslim countries who “lack any bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States,” such as a spouse, close relative, employer or enrollment in an American university.

It also allows a 120-day ban on all refugees entering the United States to go into effect.

The ruling, though, sets up further litigation in the courts over the coming weeks on just how far the “bona fide” exemptions can go and whether emergency exceptions will be granted.

“I fear that the Court’s remedy will prove unworkable,” Justice Clarence Thomas wrote. “The compromise also will invite a flood of litigation until this case is finally resolved on the merits, as parties and courts struggle to determine what exactly constitutes a ‘bona fide relationship,’ who precisely has a ‘credible claim’ to that relationship, and whether the claimed relationship was formed ‘simply to avoid §2(c)’ of Executive Order No. 13780.”

Reaz Jafri, head of the global immigration practice at Withers Bergman law firm, told Fox News he expects a significant uptick in cases and protests. Jafri advises clients on how to navigate the U.S.’s changes in immigration policies.

“It is still unclear if a national from one of the banned countries will get a visa to visit a family member, participate in a conference, visit schools or come for a job interview,” Jafri said. “Will these be considered bona fide reasons to visit the U.S.? My sense is ‘no’ and the implication is that U.S. businesses, universities and families will be negatively impacted.”

All nine justices agreed in the 13-page decision to take up the case in the fall, setting up a showdown over the legality of the order.

Justices Neil Gorsuch, Samuel Alito Jr. and Thomas wrote a three-page opinion saying they would have allowed Trump’s travel ban to take effect fully, without regard to a foreign national’s connection to the United States. Their dissent could foreshadow a tough road ahead for opponents of the travel ban.

The justices agreed to hear oral arguments on the merits of the executive order – whether the ban is lawful or exceeds the president’s powers – during the Court’s next term, which begins in October.

Though Monday’s decision wasn’t the final word on the travel ban, Trump touted it as “a clear victory for our national security.”

“As president, I cannot allow people into our country who want to do us harm,” he said in a written statement. “I want people who can love the United States and all of its citizens, and who will be hardworking and productive.”

Trump has been incensed since his original executive order, signed on Jan. 27, was partially blocked by a federal court.

“What is our country coming to when a judge can halt a Homeland Security travel ban and anyone, even with bad intentions can come into U.S.?” Trump tweeted on Feb. 4.

He added on Feb. 11: “Our legal system is broken!”

In early March, Trump issued a revised executive order — which also had key provisions blocked by federal courts.

Trump has been spoiling for the Supreme Court to take up the case and eager to get it out of the hands of what he sees as more liberal appellate judges.

Four days after signing the original ban, Trump nominated Gorsuch to fill the Supreme Court seat vacated when Antonin Scalia died.

Gorsuch, who has since been confirmed, is largely seen as a conservative, originalist justice in the Scalia mold and could help Trump claim an even more definitive victory after arguments.

Omar Jadwat, director of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, called the travel ban unconstitutional, saying, “Courts have repeatedly blocked this indefensible and discriminatory ban. The Supreme Court now has a chance to permanently strike it down.”

The next phase of the War on Trump will be a flood of media stories designed to create sympathy for Muslims who are turned away. The problem is that unless there are children involved, Muslims aren’t very sympathetic individuals.

Liberal hypocrisy which allows for mass killing of Middle Easterners but not a travel ban hasn’t helped the liberals persuade anyone that Muslims should be free as birds to come to America.

Steve Sailer: Danish “Far-Right” Party Has Been Driving Immigration Policy Since 2001, So Denmark Is a Dystopia, Right?

A BAD SIGN.

Steve Sailer wrote the following short piece, pointing out that if diversity is a strength, then Denmark must be weak.

As we all know, any political party that is skeptical about immigration is “far-right.” For example, from the New York Times two years ago:

Rise of Far-Right Party in Denmark Reflects Europe’s Unease
By STEVEN ERLANGER JUNE 19, 2015

LONDON — The surprisingly strong showing in elections on Thursday of Denmark’s anti-immigration, anti-Brussels Danish People’s Party has underlined a growing crisis of confidence in traditional political institutions and in the European Union itself.

The “far-right” Danish People’s Party has had a major influence on Danish immigration policy for about three-fourth’s of the years since 2001. So, Denmark must be a dystopian hell-hole, right? From CPH Post:

Denmark is the top ‘quality of life’ nation in the world
Social Progress Index ranks Denmark first in Nordic ‘celebration’

June 21st, 2017 8:51 am| by Christian W

According to the Social Progress Index (SPI), Denmark is the best nation in the world based on the quality of life it offers.

Produced annually by the non-profit organisation Social Progress Imperative, the SPI ranked Denmark first out of 128 nations based on scores in 50 indicators within three categories. …

Denmark ranked first in the world in the following indicators: Access to electricity, Household air pollution attributable deaths, Level of violent crime, Perceived criminality, Political terror, Secondary school enrolment, Mobile telephone subscriptions, Political rights, Freedom of expression, Freedom of assembly, Private property rights, Early marriage, Corruption, Undernourishment, Depth of food deficit, Access to piped water and Rural access to improved water source. …

It was all Africa and the Middle East at the bottom, however. Central African Republic finished rock bottom, followed by Afghanistan, Chad, Angola, Niger, Guinea and Yemen.

Excerpt from Wikipedia page on Demographics of Demark

Of these 590 000[2] immigrants and their descendants:
200 000 (34%)[3] have a Western background (Norway, Germany, Bosnia and Herzegovina, UK, Poland and Iceland; definition: EU countries, non-EU Nordic countries, Andorra, Liechtenstein, Monaco, San Marino, Switzerland, Vatican State, Canada, USA, Australia and New Zealand.).
390 000 (66%)[3] have a non-Western background (Turkey, Iraq, Romani, Somalia, Pakistan, Iran and Thailand; all other countries).
According to Mete Feridun,[4] immigration has implications for the labour market in Denmark. Moreover, according to the figures from Danmarks Statistik, crime rate among refugees and their descendants is 73% higher than for the male population average, even when taking into account their socioeconomic background. A report from Teori- og Metodecentret from 2006 found that seven out of ten young people placed on the secured youth institutions in Denmark are immigrants (with 40 percent of them being refugees).

The religiously affiliated Danish Jews number around 7,000.[9] Secular Jews and unaffiliated ethnic Jews in Denmark number several thousand.
There are approximately 15,000-20,000 Romani people with historical ties to Denmark, excluding recent immigrants and their immediate descendants.

Build a wall, Denmark. Deport those whom you know to be parasites and criminals.

Over 80,000 evacuated from German ‘Rock am Ring’ festival over ‘terrorist threat’

Germany must now live in constant fear because of one woman and her hare-brained, evil idea that a multicultural Germany can exist.

It can’t. Germany will have to face the fact that it’s becoming a nonwhite, third world, Muslim ruled hell hole.

RT

Up to 87,000 festivalgoers have evacuated from Rock am Ring music festival held near Nürburg, Germany, after police received information of a “concrete” terrorist threat.
Together with a police officer, festival organizer Marek Lieberberg took to the main stage at around 9pm to ask fans to make their way towards the exit. In a statement on Facebook, the festival’s organizers urged all those attending to leave the site in a “calm and controlled manner” after being warned of a “terrorist threat.”

“We hope that the festival will continue tomorrow. Thank you for your cooperation,” the statement added.

n a separate statement, local police said that “investigations are currently under way” regarding “concrete indications, which cannot exclude a possible terrorist threat.” In the wake of a recent attack at a music concert in Manchester, all precautions are being taken for the event, with 1,200 police officers already deployed at the scene.

The Rock am Ring festival, which was due to run until Sunday, is an annual event held at the Nürburgring arena near the historic city of Nürburg focused mainly on rock and metal music. This year’s line-up was to feature 85 different bands over four stages, including Rammstein and System Of A Down.

In the past the biggest danger to fan’s health and lives was the weather – over 70 people were injured and 42 sent to hospital after the event was hit by lightening strikes last year. None of the injuries, however, were life-threatening. Last year Germany experienced its first major Islamist terrorist attack, when Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorist Anis Amri deliberately drove a truck into a Berlin Christmas market, killing 12 civilians.

I’m sure that Frau Merkel views the evacuation as a mere inconvenience and a small price to pay for Islamic cultural enrichment. She has bigger things to worry about anyway now that President Trump has quashed American participation in the Paris Climate Agreement.

Go Merkel! Save the planet while Germany explodes.

Scottish Nationalist Man Arrested for “Racist” Anti-English Statements Following Manchester Bombing

There is no solidarity among white people.

That’s a huge problem.

Whites should be universally condeming Islam and Muslims for the Manchester bombing on Monday night. But old Alister Craigie allegedly prefers to say that the English who died there deserved it.

Apparently, British law doesn’t allow for Craigie’s mugshot to be published. After poking around on an image search, I found this photo, which I believe to be Craigie.

Even if Craigie wrote the things he’s accused of, they are only words. Speech should be protected from prosecution by the government.

metro.co.uk

A man has been charged with posting racist messages about English people following the Manchester bombing.

Alister Craigie, 59, of Stobswell, was arrested and charged by police for allegedly making offensive remarks in the wake of Monday’s tragedy – which saw 22 people killed by suicide bomber Salman Abedi.

Craigie allegedly took to social media just hours after the atrocity to make comments about the victims.

He also reportedly responded to questions from other people to say that people at a concert deserved to die if they were English.

He appeared at Dundee Sheriff Court to face a charge of sending racist, abusive and offensive comments in relation to the bombing.

Prosecutors claim that Craigie’s messages were ‘grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene or menacing character’ and were sent on Monday and Tuesday.

The charge also states that Craigie’s messages were racially-aggravated.

He pleaded not guilty to the charge and will appear in court again in August – with a trial due to begin in September.

A police spokesman said: ‘Police Scotland can confirm that a 59-year-old man from the Stobswell area was arrested and charged with communications offences relating to abusive comments on Facebook.

‘He appeared at Dundee Sheriff Court yesterday.’

Many of the victims of Monday’s blast, as people left an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester Arena, were children.

They included Scottish schoolgirl Eilidh MacLeod, 14, from Barra in the Outer Hebrides.

Family of Manchester terror victim warns government to ‘open its eyes’ before it’s too late

GEORGINA CALLANER. KILLED BY A MUSLIM WHO WAS ENABLED BY THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT.

Victim Georgina’s parents have released a statement that says in coded language what everyone knows: Either recognize that Muslims are incompatible with life in Britain or expect many more dead teens and children in the future.

metro.co.uk

The family of Georgina Callander, who tragically died in the Manchester bombing, has warned the government it must ‘open its eyes’ before more parents lose their children to terror.

The 18-year-old was killed in the blast shortly before her favourite artist, Ariana Grande, left the stage at Manchester Arena on Monday night.

In a statement released through Greater Manchester Police, the family said Georgina’s life had been cut short by ‘evil, evil men prepared to ruin lives and destroy families’.

‘I wish I could say that Georgina is one of the last to die in this way but unless our Government opens its eyes we know we are only another in a long line of parents on a list that continues to grow,’ the statement added.

The teenager, from Chorley, was in her second year of studying health and social care at Runshaw College in Leyland, Lancashire, and had previously been a pupil at Bishop Rawstorne Church of England Academy.

She had also recently passed her driving test, was ‘doing great’ in her exams, and had been accepted into Edge Hill University.

‘Here was a girl who was loving life,’ the family said.

The statement continued: ‘On the 22 May 2017 our lives changed forever as our amazing daughter Georgina Bethany Callander was senselessly taken away.

‘Her life was taken away after 18 short years by evil, evil men prepared to ruin lives and destroy families, for what?

‘Georgina was as beautiful on the inside as she was on the outside, with a smile that was never ending.

‘She always had big hugs for everyone and her life was blooming like the flowers she loved.’

The family also paid tribute to the ‘wonderful police and rescue services’ and thanked the public for their support.

We wish the statment were stronger in terms of naming Islam and Muslims directly, but the control that Muslims exhibit over the British government makes that impossible.

We who have even half a brain get what the family is saying.

The problem is that the family’s plea is going to be ignored by the multiculturalist traitors who stifle honest speech.

Appeals Court Ruling Endangers Public Safety by Again Blocking Trump Travel Ban

DEAD KIDS IN MANCHESTER AND NOW THIS COURT RULING. OF COURSE HE’S HAPPY.

Unbelievable!

The 4th circuit federal appeals court used the “Trump made racist comments during the campaign” justification for putting millions of Americans in danger.

The rule of law and many lives have been sacrificed today on the altar of political correctness.

NBC News

A federal appeals court Thursday upheld one of two bans on enforcing President Donald Trump’s executive order restricting travel from six predominately Muslim countries.

The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, based in Richmond, Virginia, voted 10-3 to uphold a ruling by a federal judge in Maryland who declared in March that the president’s revised travel order amounted to unconstitutional religious discrimination.

Campaign statements by Donald Trump, who originally called for a ban on Muslim immigration, “provide direct, specific evidence” of what motivated his executive orders — “President Trump’s desire to exclude Muslims from the United States,” the appeals court said.

The revised executive order “cannot be divorced from the cohesive narrative linking it to the animus that inspired it,” the court said in an opinion written by Chief Judge Roger Gregory.

The Justice Department urged the court to lift the ban on enforcement. It said the executive order had a legitimate national security purpose, allowing the government to assess the reliability of background information on visa applicants from six countries associated with terrorism.

But that argument, the court said, “is belied by evidence in the record that President Trump issued the first executive order without consulting with the relevant security agencies.”

After President Trump’s first executive order was blocked in court, the president signed the second one, imposing a 90-day ban on travel from Iran, Sudan, Syria, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen.

Judge Paul Niemeyer, writing in dissent for himself and Judges Dennis Shedd and Steven Agee, said the majority wrongly gave itself the power to “search for evidence suggesting bad faith.”

As for the government’s claim that the president acted to protect national security, the dissenters said “none of the facts or conditions recited as reasons for the issuance of the executive order have been challenged as untrue or illegitimate.”

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement Thursday that the Justice Department “strongly disagrees” with the decision and would be seeking a review of the case in the Supreme Court.

Sessions added that the president’s executive order was “well within his lawful authority to keep the nation safe.”

“As the dissenting judges explained, the executive order is a constitutional exercise of the President’s duty to protect our communities from terrorism,” Sessions said. “The president is not required to admit people from countries that sponsor or shelter terrorism, until he determines that they can be properly vetted and do not pose a security risk to the United States.”

There really is only one solution to the unlawful rulings issued by Obama judges. That solution is illustrated below. Let the heads of judges and journalists roll.

Migrant Privilege: Germany Confiscating Homes to Give to Illegal Sand Monkeys

Everything for “refugees,” nothing for the German people.

Excerpt from the Gatesstone Institute

Authorities in Hamburg, the second-largest city in Germany, have begun confiscating private dwellings to ease a housing shortage — one that has been acutely exacerbated by Chancellor Angela Merkel’s decision to allow more than two million migrants into the country in recent years.

City officials have been seizing commercial properties and converting them into migrant shelters since late 2015, when Merkel opened German borders to hundreds of thousands of migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Now, however, the city is expropriating residential property units owned by private citizens.

In an unprecedented move, Hamburg authorities recently confiscated six residential units in the Hamm district near the city center. The units, which are owned by a private landlord, are in need of repair and have been vacant since 2012. A trustee appointed by the city is now renovating the properties and will rent them — against the will of the owner — to tenants chosen by the city. District spokeswoman Sorina Weiland said that all renovation costs will be billed to the owner of the properties.

The expropriation is authorized by the Hamburg Housing Protection Act (Hamburger Wohnraumschutzgesetz), a 1982 law that was updated by the city’s Socialist government in May 2013 to enable the city to seize any residential property unit that has been vacant for more than four months.

The forced lease, the first of its kind in Germany, is said to be aimed at pressuring the owners of other vacant residences in the city to make them available for rent. Of the 700,000 rental units in Hamburg, somewhere between 1,000 and 5,000 (less than one percent) are believed to be vacant, according an estimate by the Hamburg Senate.

The measure was applauded by those on the left of the political spectrum. “We are doing everything we can to ensure that the refugees are not homeless during the coming winter,” said Senator Till Steffen of the Green Party. “For this reason, we need to use vacant commercial properties.”

Others have argued that efforts by the state to seize private property are autocratic and reek of Communism. “The proposed confiscation of private land and buildings is a massive attack on the property rights of the citizens of Hamburg,” said André Trepoll of the center-right Christian Democratic Union (CDU). “It amounts to an expropriation by the state.” He said the proposed measure is a “law of intimidation” that amounts to a “political dam-break with far-reaching implications.” He added: “The ends do not justify any and all means.”

The kebab so-called refugees quickly turned into sexual predators once in Germany. And now Frau Merkel is giving them houses which could be used by indigenous Germans. Only a regime change is going to clear the air in a country that is committing national suicide.
