The judge’s name will not appear in this column because he is an insignificant ant who seems to think he is a whale. But he put a hold on the president’s travel ban and made it nationwide for the second time.
That is why SCOTUS b*^#h slapped the ant and ruled that the president has the right to issue a ban in the interest of public safety. They also rejected the notion that it was bigoted towards Muslims since the Muslim population of the countries is a small fraction of Muslims in the world. And some countries like North Korea have few, if any, Muslims.
The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday in favor of President Donald Trump in Trump v. Hawaii, the controversial case regarding Trump’s September order to restrict travel to the U.S. for citizens of several majority Muslim countries.
In the 5-4 opinion penned by Chief Justice John Roberts, the court found that Trump’s immigration restriction fell “squarely” within the president’s authority. The court rejected claims that the ban was motivated by religious hostility.
“The [order] is expressly premised on legitimate purposes: preventing entry of nationals who cannot be adequately vetted and inducing other nations to improve their practices,” Roberts wrote. “The text says nothing about religion.”
The case has been central to the Trump administration’s immigration policy, presenting a key test of the president’s campaign promise to restrict immigration and secure America’s borders.

The court’s decision leaves no doubt on whether the president has the right to issue a ban and they set no limits on that power which is granted by the constitution and has been used by Democratic presidents Harry Truman, Jimmie Carter, and Barack Obama.
