Now...about this latest Hawaiian Judge to squelch Trump's latest EO regarding a TEMPORARY travel ban from just a FEW countries, that are predominantly Muslim.....This ruling is wrong, on so many levels. The jist of the ruling is that the Judge proclaims that although there's no actual language that specifcally bans anyone based on their religion, the apparent jist of the EO does indeed apparently ban folks from entering this country, based on their religion.
Let's put away the Trump hatred mindset for a few moments and deal with present Constitutional guidelines and legal precedent.
1) Let's pretend that the Judge is exactly correct....that he was able to read the mind of Trump, and ascertain the REAL reason for the EO, that of banning Muslims from entering this country, simply because they're Muslim. Guess what.....the Constitution gives him precisely that authority. Constitutional protections, which includes religious protections, ONLY APPLIES TO AMERICANS, AS IN LEGAL CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTRY. It does NOT apply to ANYONE NOT of this country, which includes ANY person, or ANY religion. That's egregious error #1
2) The Judge even concedes that there is no language that specifically bans anyone from this country, based on their religion. However the Judge apparently knows how nefarious Trump is, and has decided to read into the EO, something that simply isn't there. A gross overstepping of Judicial authority. That's egregious error #2
3) If this was a supposed ban on all Muslims, it would have included ALL Muslim countries, and not just those that just happen to also be designated terrorist havens/training grounds, by the PREVIOUS Administration Egregious error #3
4) Lastly, we have PRECEDENT....as in previous presidents have performed precisely that, which Trump is trying to do...impose a TEMPORARY BAN on specific locations, as in countries, NOT religions. Jimmy Carter imposed a ban on Iranian immigrants. Where was the outrage?? The beloved FDR, one of the Left's icons, imposed a ban on even Jewish refugees, for fear of Nazi spies hiding among them. Fricken error #4
