Thank God for a judiciary! Otherwise we’d soon be another banana republic dictatorship.

It’s very, very funny. AND it’s spot-on!
February 14, 2017,6:18 pm
I think it’s very Dangerous to give these “Liberal”Judges-Power over the President of U.S.A.-We are in A War–And people should be Checked-Are we may End-Up in Real Big Trouble!!!
February 13, 2017,6:43 pm
THE COURTS NEED TO DO THEIR JOB AND OBEY THE LAWS…ALL THE LAWS. THE PRESIDENT IS CORRECT… THESE LIBERALS NEED TO BREATH DEEP A COUPLE HUNDRED TIMES…

Remember, a VISA can be pulled at any time for any reason. There is NO constitutional right to immigrate in to this nation. That IS a constitutional fact.
February 13, 2017,12:32 am
IT IS constitutional. The president has the authority to deny anyone, not a citizen, entry into the country. FDR did it in the 30’s. Denied entry to a hole ship load of Jewish refugee’s from Germany. Sent them packing, on his own authority. Sighting the risk of German spies being in the mix. Not a lot different from the current situation. Of course today we are at war, in the 30’s war hadn’t started yet. So don’t be so quick to judge. The president has the authority for the TEMPORARY ban. The judges that have blocked it are NOT acting by law, but as political hacks of the commie left. I’m proud Trump won. America first. If those peple can’t live with their gov’s let them start over in their countries.

The block was unconstitutional, the way it was written. It was too broad. It stopped people who are citizens and or hold a legal green card, and legal visa. The ones who are refugees, went through 2-3 years of extreme vetting before getting permission to come to America. The countries are not the ones who had anything to do with 9/11.
February 12, 2017,6:25 pm
Send them all back………………………..
February 12, 2017,1:07 pm
OF COURSE THE BAN SHOULD BE UNBLOCKED. IT SHOULD HAVE NEVER BEEN BLOCKED IN THE FIRST PLACE, MY GOODNESS IT WAS ONLY FOR 90 DAYS UNTIL WE COULD GET THINGS IN ORDER. BUT WE HAVE THESE NO GOOD ROTTEN JUDGES THAT ARE ON THE SIDE OF THE LIBERALS WANTING TO DESTROY AMERICA.
February 12, 2017,12:37 pm
Never vote for those unamerican judges again!!!
February 12, 2017,9:01 am
It is absolutely a crime that these judges, communist, and liberals would want these monsters in this country. They should be made to have these nasty people come into their homes and stay for as long as they stay in this country. I bet it would be a week and the entire household would be dead.
February 12, 2017,6:54 am
Thanks for your input!!
The libs are upset because their agenda to create A New America is about to be derailed . The silent majority needs to turn up its voice to a thunderous roar!!
February 12, 2017,1:10 am
Let our President DO HIS Job, for god sakes, we finally have a leader and not a corrupt politician acting like they Re for America.. If you can’t deal, than get out of this country!! Seriously oblivious or just plain corrupt!!!!!
February 11, 2017,11:08 pm
It is ridiculous that the 9th. circuit court can stop a national security exec. order made by the commander in chief this should be restored now for the security of our nation
February 11, 2017,9:50 pm
ABSOLUTELY, there is NO “Constitutional right” for ANYBODY to immigrate to this country, it is a PRIVILEGE granted by American PEOPLE, NOT Congress and it’s time AMERICANS take control of this action. It COSTS $113 BILLION PER YEAR in costs to taxpayers for ILLEGALS. It’s time to put AMERICANS FIRST, not radicals or ILLEGALS. U.S. government ALLOWS 1,250,000 MILLION immigrants PER YEAR into the U.S., it’s TIME TO DRASTICALLY REDUCE THAT NUMBER and represent AMERICA for a change!
February 11, 2017,9:50 pm
Your response is THE ANSWER and needs to be put before President Trump and his staff!!
President Trump has a Twitter account. People write in to him via his Twitter address. I don’t know what it is, but I’m sure you can find it. PLEASE, PLEASE get this information to him!
This is powerful ammunition in this battle!
Praying for you, the President and his staff.
Thank you, Eleanor!
February 11, 2017,9:12 pm
Very good Eleanor!

Subject: You Can’t Fix STUPID! The Best We Can Do Is Vote It Out –
Wouldn’t it be interesting if, at some point during the Presidential campaign of 2016, one of the candidates would have asked: “Has anyone in the DC beltway ever heard of the McCarran-Walter Act Of 1952?” Well it’s been “The Law Of The Land” for nearly 65 years.
For all those ignoramuses’ within the political class, here are the historic facts that would seem to indicate that many, if not most, of those we elected to represent us in Washington DC, are just plain idiots without any idea of what laws already exist on-the-books, in OUR country.
After numerous Radical Islamic terror incidents, capped off with the 9-11 attacks in NYC, DC and PA, with the deaths of nearly 3000 people Casualties of the September 11 attacks – Wikipedia , Donald J. Trump has been savagely criticized Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 – Wikipedia for suggesting that the U.S.A. should limit, or temporarily suspend the immigration of certain ethnic groups, nationalities, and even people of certain religions (Muslims), until the US government gets a “handle” on the situation of Islamic immigration.
The criticisms seemed to suggest that Donald Trump was being, un-American, dumb, stupid, reckless, dangerous and racist. Many Congressmen and Senators within his own GOP party swore that they would never allow such legislation, and even President Obama called such a prohibition on immigration unconstitutional.
But as Gomer Pyle would say: “Well, Surprise, Surprise!”
The FACT is a selective immigration ban has been “The Law Of The Land” since 1952, and has been applied on occasions, by US Presidents.
Known as the McCarran-Walter Act, or the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952, which allows for the: “Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by the President, whenever the President finds that the entry of aliens, or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States. The President may, by proclamation, and for such a period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens, or any class of aliens, immigrants, or non-immigrants, or impose any restrictions on the entry of aliens he may deem to be appropriate.”
Who was president when this law was passed?
Harry S. Truman (D). Who do you suppose used this law last?
Jimmy Carter (D), no less than 37 years ago, in 1979, to keep Iranians out of the United States of America.
But Carter actually did more: He made ALL Iranian students, already in the United States, check in with the government. And then he deported a bunch of them. 7000 were found in violation of their visas, and a total of 15,000 Iranians were forced to leave the USA in 1979.
So, what say you about all of the criticism President Donald J. Trump has received from the Progressive Democratic Party, their minion Senators, Representatives and George Soros Anarchists to date? Additionally, it is important to note that the McCarran-Walter Act also requires: “an applicant for immigration must be of good moral character and in agreement with the principles of our Constitution.”
Therefore, WE THE PEOPLE of the United States Of America could surmise, since the Quran forbids Muslims to swear allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, then technically, ALL Muslims should, or could be refused the privilege of immigration to America – Right?
Verify McCarran-Walter Act here: Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 – Wikipedia
PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW!
February 11, 2017,4:54 pm
our constitution allows for the president to ban foreigners from entering the country.
February 11, 2017,4:51 pm
I agree with Madeleine. Why is it that any other nation on the planet can take whatever steps it wants to control its borders, but if the USA takes action, then George Soros starts hemorrhaging money paying his puppets to protest?
February 11, 2017,4:33 pm
Not only restore , but expand the ban.
February 11, 2017,4:27 pm
Unblock…He is no different than any other president that has done the same..He’s protecting America…that is what he was elected to do…
February 11, 2017,4:27 pm
Let president Trump do his job.
February 11, 2017,4:25 pm
it should have never been blocked from the start
February 11, 2017,2:41 pm

Based on the Eropean experience, these migrants, legal and/or illegal, are ca. 80% illiterate, do not wish to assimilate and with their large families and multiple wives will become a burden on the American taxpayers. They lack all marketable skills. Therefore, they are unemplyable.
February 11, 2017,2:11 pm
I knew the leftist-liberals didn’t have any common sense, but I had hopes that they would come around. I guess you don’t trust the government if their not forcing you accept their decisions. Or their giving your tax dollars to whacko countries who want to kill all the infidels. Thats you.
Let president Trump do his job, that a hell of a lot more than odummer did.
Us the common sense that was given to you.
February 11, 2017,2:10 pm
I love our President for telling this judge to kiss ass and put the travel ban back in place!! We are with you Mr. President!!
February 11, 2017,1:55 pm
For those who don’t believe the radical terrorist who in their own streets shout “Death to America” are living in a false reality!
February 11, 2017,1:51 pm
Only complete morons and idiots think the temporary travel ban does not need to be in place and strongly enforced!!
Currently there is no competent manner of determining who the people wanting to come into the United States are and there needs to be before we allow more to enter!!
February 11, 2017,1:38 pm
If this keeps up, the U.K., Germany and Australia to name a few, are in GREAT COMPANY–AMERICA!
February 11, 2017,1:34 pm
If this keeps up, the U.K., Germany and Australia to name a few, are in GREAT COMPANY–the USA!!!!
February 11, 2017,1:33 pm
We need this in order for the citizens of the United States of America and Countries around the world to feel safe.
February 11, 2017,1:33 pm
Liberals must need to get anothe kick to the head from terrorists before some reality might sink in. They must think that borders should be removed, maybe they should visit Europe!
February 11, 2017,1:31 pm
What a price to pay for votes. The wacko’s on the left will stop at nothing to secure ILLEGAL votes. Just like they don’t know what the word “ILLEGAL” means.
February 11, 2017,1:21 pm
Absolutely in favor of a temporary ban until improved vetting controls are implemented. Just need to aim before we shoot.
February 11, 2017,1:19 pm
lib socialist are idiots!! They have been grubered so many times for the last eight years they may never return to normal!!!
February 11, 2017,1:18 pm
Trump is trying to protect Americans while the judges want us killed it seems. They need to be put off the bench.
February 11, 2017,1:17 pm
THE PRESIDENTS FIRST POWER IS TO PROTECT THE CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES FROM HARM AND POTENTIAL DANGER …IT IS HIS RIGHT TO DO WHAT IS NECESSARY TO INSURE OUR SAFETY….I AGREE WITH EXTREME VETTING…..
February 11, 2017,1:16 pm
Americans safety always comes first. Illegals are criminals and have no rights!
February 11, 2017,1:16 pm
Democrats and Liberals how many illegals and terrorists do we need in this country so they can kill everyone in this country?
February 10, 2017,11:09 pm
Ever since he took America by storm in the 2016 election, Pres. Trump has attracted controversy and attention in equal measure. Now conservative readers can go behind the scenes of his White House and his winning campaign — check out our CBC Reading Roundup to find out more!
“Within the first eleven months, we canceled or delayed over 1,500 planned regulatory actions, more than any previous president. Instead of eliminating two old regulations for every one new regulation, we have eliminated 22! We aimed for 2 for 1, and in 2017, we hit 22-1.”
“I promised we would pass a massive tax cut for the everyday, working American families who are the backbone and the heartbeat of our country…. We want to give you, the American people, a giant tax cut for Christmas. And when I say giant, I mean giant.”
Should Speaker of the House Paul Ryan resign after the 2018 midterm elections? Vote in our CBC reader poll!
