‘Affirmative right to immigrate’ made up by U.S. courts

In their nationwide rebellion against President Donald Trump, federal judges are setting out to create an “affirmative right to immigrate” to the United States” – a right, they contend, that is bestowed to every person on the face of the planet.

Conservative Review Senior Editor Daniel Horowitz is concerned that the same American judiciary that blocked the new commander-in-chief’s immigration executive orders is now threatening to overthrow the most fundamental aspect of American sovereignty.

“Even President Trump’s original orders were grounded in precedent and statute,” Horowitz told WND. “But these federal judges who have issued a halt to President Trump’s new executive orders have gone even farther. Not only did they simply refuse to address the legislation that gives Trump the authority to issue these orders, they started creating new rights out of thin air – which gives practically everyone in the world a future affirmative right to immigrate to the United States. Obviously, that means the end of the United States – in any meaningful sense.”

This judicial overreach is reportedly in addition to a number of other reckless actions from America’s courts.

“The courts aren’t just stripping the president of his authority to stop national security threats … they aren’t just endangering Americans … they aren’t just basing their rulings on pure ideology instead of the law … the American judiciary is [now] creating an ‘affirmative right to immigrate,” WND reported.

Dishonorable insurrection

Judges across the U.S. are banding together in defiance to the commander-in-chief’s efforts to secure America’s borders and protect its citizens.

“Last Friday, Judge William Connelly of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin issued a temporary restraining order against President Trump’s ban on some travel from terror-producing nations,” the WND report recounteed. “On Wednesday, a judge in Hawaii placed a temporary restraining order on President Trump’s executive order. The next morning, another federal judge in Maryland joined in the political strategy. At a rally in Nashville Wednesday night, President Trump slammed the block as ‘an unprecedented judicial overreach.’”

Horowitz – who authored of Stolen Sovereignty: How to Stop Unelected Judges from Transforming America – finds it difficult to not side with Trump regarding the immigration debate and believes that the president could even be understating the need for the protective order.

“The reasoning that was used in these cases doesn’t just undermine statute, precedent and law – it essentially repudiates the concepts of citizenship and sovereignty altogether!” Horowitz exclaimed. “For example, in the case in Wisconsin, the judge blocked the order because an asylee living in America feared the ban might prevent his wife and daughter from coming to America at some point in the future. But if the order doesn’t apply to those already approved for asylum, from where does his supposed fear derive?”

America beware!

The immigration expert also warned about the dire consequences of the judges moving forward with their politically correct insurrection that could prove hazardous to U.S. citizens.

“Of course, there’s also something way more important at stake – a court can’t just demand any alien in the world be admitted to the United States,” Horowitz continued. “Yet the court is not only claiming this power, but it is granting standing to someone who hasn’t even suffered any consequences from the proposed ban. There’s no ‘injury-in-fact’ in legal parlance. The only way this makes sense is if the court is saying everyone in the world is suffering from the loss of some newly created legal right to come to this country.”

The irrational nature behind the reasoning of U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson’s ruling in the Aloha State was then pointed out by Horowitz, who quoted the Hawaiian’s explanation for challenging the president.

“[President Trump’s executive order was issued with a purpose to disfavor a particular religion.,” Watson insisted.

This claim was argued as false after examining the text of Trump’s immigration executive order.

“But the text of the ban did not refer to any particular religion, and instead was a temporary restriction on all immigration for certain terror-linked countries,” WND stated. “However, both Watson and U.S. District Judge Theodore D. Chuang in Maryland reached outside the evidence of the dispute itself and used campaign statements from President Trump and his advisers to say the executive order was an attempt at the ‘Muslim ban’ promised during the campaign and, therefore, could not be allowed.”

A fiery adversary of Trump, David Frum, even conceded that the concerted effort to derail the newly sworn-in president’s travel ban is staging an attempt to radically rewrite the existing immigration law of the U.S.

“By barring foreign Muslims, the opinion argues, the Trump administration has signaled disfavor of domestic Muslims as well, thereby violating their First Amendment rights to religious equality,” Frum commented on Watson’s ruling. “Not only that! Watson’s opinion further contends that this argument is so convincing that it is ‘highly likely’ to prevail on the ultimate merits – and for that reason, that he is justified in issuing immediately a temporary restraining order against Trump’s ban. This double argument is bold, to put it mildly. What it does, in effect, is globalize the First Amendment, and possibly other amendments, too, provided only that a fellow adherent of that religion live inside the United States.”

Usurping the commander-in-chief and Congress?

Horowitz says that Watson’s take on the matter basically declares that the president – and even Congress – are essentially prohibited from imposing any limitation on immigration, due to their recently declared “global freedom of religion” … a newly proposed precedent that would ultimately establish a new law of the land.

“The claim being made by Judge Watson is breathtaking,” the conservative critic stressed. “Essentially, he is saying that domestic Muslims are being harmed because President Trump is imposing a temporary travel ban on a predominantly Muslim country – even when the ban itself does not identify Muslims specifically. What’s more, liberal states are claiming ‘injury’ because of the travel ban. As I’ve written before, it’s equivalent to a state suing the president because it doesn’t like his foreign policy or if a state felt that the military deployments are hurting and disrupting the lives of residents of their states.”

He also maintains that the recent court decisions pose an existential challenge to not only Trump’s authority as commander-in-chief – as well as Congress’s as a lawmaking body – but to the foundational principals that have governed America for centuries.

“This is it – if conservatives do not push back on this, the courts will essentially mandate unlimited immigration from the entire world,” Horowitz warned. “It means that the most fundamental areas of public policy and the existence of American sovereignty will have been essentially given away to judges.”

Taking stolen power back

The acclaimed author suggested that Congress should take several actions in order to regain its authority over immigration from the renegade federal judges, as outlined below.

“[The actions] include passing a concurrent resolution disapproving the court’s decision and affirming the power of Congress and the executive over immigration, using a defunding rider to reintroduce the president’s immigration order in a budget bill, drawing up articles of impeachment against the judges, eliminating the ability of lower courts to issue injunctions or restraining orders outside their jurisdictions, and breaking up the notoriously Left-wing Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals,” WND described Horowitz’s plan.

Horowitz emphasized that the most critical step Congress should take is to strip away any power of the courts to adjudicate any lawsuit that demands the entry of foreign nationals into the U.S. that goes against the will of other branches.

“We shouldn’t have to do any of these things, but the situation has gone too far,” he impressed. “We are now essentially being governed by unelected, radically Left-wing judges unmoored by statute or precedent who are simply dictating law to the rest of the country based on their ideology.”

He summed up his argument by restating what the law of the land was established to do in America.

“The Constitution works as a system of checks and balances,” Horowitz concluded. “It is time for the legislature and the president to check these judicial supremacists. Otherwise, we won’t just lose our constitutional system – we lose the country itself.”

      The problem is that most people aren’t willing to do anything beyond making a scathing post on some message board. This is why the liberals have been so effective at infiltrating every level of government–no one is willing to do what is necessary to oppose them.

I couldn’t give a GOD dXXX about the libs and anarchists that make a living protesting and getting arrested. It’s time for congress and the President to simply do what they know needs too be done. If anyone says no, I can’t do that, the Judges have spoken….you’re FIRED! Get the F out and bring someone else in to take over….easy peasy. Time to raise the roof boys! Either that or maybe it’s time for open season on unelected radical, treasonous judges. Send in the Guard and arrest the MF’s. Shut these F’rs up!!! Ask for forgiveness later!

      I’m still of the mind that we need in-kind payback. These judges have to know there’s no real rule allowing infinite illegals into the country. That’s not a “right” and it flies in the face of our real right to defend ourselves.

      We need to move loads and loads of these “Dreamers” into the same neighborhoods as the lib judges that are letting them in. And we might as well start them out in a professional trade. I’m thinking locksmith, home alarm, and gun repair. Now these lovely non-rapist, non-criminal, perfect citizens will be living within spitting distance of the judges and have the ability to open any lock.

      And yes this is *exactly* the recipe they think is just fine for the rest of us. So what if a few thousand actual Americans are killed by Latino gangs? Where’s your tolerance? But let one liberal judge lose his family to illegals and watch the outcry.

      Protecting the country is a responsibility. These judges are letting in killers. The price for this needs to be death – the price we little people have already paid.

      Now the only question is how to fund it. If I was a lib I’d know how to milk the government for the money to do it.

    FDR defied the courts, maybe this is something President Trump should do. Carry thru with his ban and force Congress and the Supreme Court to take sides. Which brings up another point, if Congress passed a bill backing up President Trump’s EO would the judges still find it unconstitutional? Maybe we need Congress to test that scenario.

      oldsarge, BOTH times the IDIOT judges said they made their rulings based on remarks President Trump made during the campaign–which they “interpreted” as ipso facto proof that these orders are designed to discriminate against Muslims.

      First of all, that is a RIDICULOUS basis for a judicial ruling! Where in LAW does it say a judge may strike down a Presidential order because he didn’t like something the President said when he was campaigning for office?

      This is why the Congress needs to stop effing around and CONFIRM Neal Gorsuch so President Trump can appeal to the Supreme Court and put a STOP to these Obama appointee judges SABOTAGING everything he tries to do, with NO LEGAL JUSTIFICATION WHATEVER for doing so! Even if it WAS a “Muslim Ban”, the PRESIDENT has the LEGAL authority to make that call, which is more than you can say for these Obama-appointed MORONS in the 9th Circuit Court!

      Keep in in mind the GOP has only 52 Senators. I doubt ANY Democrat Senator would vote to convict a judge like Watson. Still, the House should have some cojones and impeach judges who make such egregious rulings.

      Matt, in MY opinion, that is exactly what President Trump should do–but only AFTER Neal Gorsuch is seated on the Supreme Court! Once we have a Conservative majority on the Supreme Court, he can IGNORE these globalist FOOLS with IMPUNITY, because you know DAMNED well they are not going to run crying to the Supreme Court, when they have NO LEGAL BASIS WHATEVER for their rulings and would be quickly overturned. So what are they going to do about it, besides cry to the propaganda shills in the media, whom nobody listens to anyhow.

      It is going to be an uphill battle to save our country from these globalist VERMIN, because they’ve done such a GOOD job of brainwashing school kids to think like they do, and of course the liberals who are incapable of independent thought , being the “useful idiots” they are, and THEY will march in LOCKSTEP with whatever anti-American, anti-liberty Communist BS their “masters” put out. And then there is George Soros bankrolling the opposition, providing “rent-a-rioters” to create anarchy, and rent-a-thugs to physically attack anybody who dares to disagree with them, in CLASSIC Nazi brownshirt fashion! (I’m sure this is SOROS’ Nazi background and leanings coming to the fore!) So it’s time to take the gloves off and fight JUST as dirty as they do, which means using EVERY iota of power and influence at our disposal! Otherwise, they will win, and we will all become SLAVES of the globalist collective.

      You did know that right?

      Now, second test question, how many branches of government can he looked to support his position?

      Two!

      If he goes to a eight member Supreme Court it will be at best 4 to 4 which returns it to the lower court

      If he waits until Gorsuch, Gorsuch will be branded as Trump’s lackey and if confirmed after using the nuclear option he will be the villain and our sacrificial lamb

      It is not something would want for myself and do not want it for him. It is the path of those whom lack the courage to stand and fight for themselves

      The current Congress has 535 members ALL affiliated with a political party, that is where politics are played out

      House
      Republicans 237*
      Democrats 193**

      4 of the vacancies are from Republicans resigning to work in the Trump administration

      Senate
      52 Republicans
      46 Democrats
      2 Independents

      289 Republicans, Trump only needs a handful to get what he needs done to move forward

      This route has multiple possibilities which are thousands of times more likely of getting a favorable solution

      “THAT IS WHY I SAY its stupid to think the congress will save us from those evil judges…”

      Why do you (we) NEED to be saved by congress?

      “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

      How can he POSSIBLY up hold that oath if ONLY judges can know how he should do his job?

      By deferring to them he is saying he lacks the ability to do the job

      So all he needs to do is say he does not agree and IGNORE their OPINION

      NOW, someone is out of bounds, either Trump or the judges

      BUT who is to JUDGE them?

      The Supreme Court or Congress?

      The court cannot make up laws then hold the President accountable for failing to execute them, that is for Congress, so by obeying the court he is FAILING to do his duty and needs to be removed from office

      So if Congress is not acting to remove him from office he can just ignore the judges

      So you only need a FEW congressmen preventing that from being done by congress

      The first Executive Order is in full force and all employees in the Executive branch need to do their DUTY or be removed by the President

      I know the courts don’t read the Constitution but I do

      Article I,Section 2
      “The House of Representatives shall chuse their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment”

      So unless there are enough members in the House who believe they have delegated to the court their Constitutional responsibilities or that there is in fact some law being broken by Trump’s order, he can ignore the judges and seek to find members of Congress to have the usurpers removed from their imagined thrones, at some later date

      Also remember, since the Appellate Court stopped Trumps EO, a 4-4 tie vote would leave the 9th Circuit ruling in effect. Would all the 4 liberal SCOTUS judges rule to strip the president of his constitutional authority to control immigration? I’m not sure I want to give them that chance.

      “…. Judge Gorsuch has never heard a case involving such specific immigration restrictions I see no reason for him to recuse himself.”

      To return the favor for getting on the court. There will be very much the appearance he was hired specifically for that job to rescue us.

      Recusing himself shows independence because everyone knows how much we need a vote in our favor, because the left believes the Constitution is SUBJECT to the will of individuals on the court rather than individuals subjecting themselves to the law, and is the very reason the issue is even before the court because the left just makes things up and they cannot believe we don’t too.

      So by Gorsuch NOT taking one for the team shows he is not owned by us.

      “Also remember, since the Appellate Court stopped Trumps EO, a 4-4 tie vote would leave the 9th Circuit ruling in effect. Would all the 4 liberal SCOTUS judges rule to strip the president of his constitutional authority to control immigration? I’m not sure I want to give them that chance.”

      Clue: You know why 2 + 2 = 4? Because it becomes meaningless to be inconsistent in the use of DEFINED terms, those are all defined terms 2, 4, +, =

      So the court will be contradicting itself if it returns it to a lower court .

      Jota, why would any nominee promise to recuse himself just to get on the Court? Remember when he was asked if he had agreed to overrule Roe v Wade in his talk with Trump? He said no and if he had been asked to do so he would have waled out.

      The same principle applies to promising the Democrats to recuse himself on the immigration restrictions. But he also wouldn’t say he’d vote to uphold the restrictions.

      Ever since Judge Borked was Borked, the rule has been to promise fealty to the Constitution and to try to be non-committal. I don’t agree with the latter but Justice Bader Ginsberg made it de riguer.

      As for returning it to a lower court, the SCOTUS doesn’t have to do that. All it would take is for a 4 to 4 tie and the lower court ruling which struck down Pres. Trump’s EO would stand. In that case, I like your suggestion that Pres. Trump ignore the Courts and rest his case with Congress. Either they back him or impeach him.

      “why would any nominee promise to recuse himself just to get on the Court?”

      Don’t know, why do you think they would?

      The question you need to ask is what is the perception when he rules exactly on the issue as what we want him to rule?

      Does he come off looking independent or as if he is owned?

      So lets say he does NOT recuse himself on this issue, and he is as would be the correct assessment, wrongly perceived as being owned by us, does he now subconsciously try to prove he is independent by giving ever so slightly more weight to arguments from the left so the scales of justice are tipped in their favor?

      Of course not, no reason to think he is a human being, and not a legal computing machine like all the other judges and why when we ask them what is 2 + 2 they all say 4, right?

      Especially since he PRIDES (human attribute) himself on doing what ever it takes to being perceived as independent, devoted to only the law

      After all, if he is perceived as not being truly independent it is to question his love for the law, and he will try to protect what he loves so will swing the other way to PROVE the perception wrong, so no harm falls upon his love.

      So best not to start out even having to run the risk and just recuse himself because it is NO WIN for him, great for us, but a loser for him

      “All it would take is for a 4 to 4 tie and the lower court ruling which struck down Pres. Trump’s EO would stand.”

      But what are they saying stands?

      The lower court is saying it has a RIGHT to put a temporary BAN (restraining order) on the Executive branches orders so the court can then have more time to examine the issue to make sure no harm is done, but if the President does the exact same thing, which his order does, they are claiming they and they alone have this right, because they are pure of heart and only hate Christians because they deserve it, for practicing their religion for everyone to see

      So the Supreme court would be saying, with a 4 to 4 vote, you kids just go ahead and do what you want, you can just ignore us.

      So should the Executive branch and ignore any future interference until the court gets its own house in ORDER

    “This is it – if conservatives do not push back on this, the courts will essentially mandate unlimited immigration from the entire world,”

    What I find amazing is conservatives claim to understand what liberals are saying, know it is wrong but still obey them anyway

    NO ONE HAS A OBLIGATION TO OBEY AN ILLEGAL ORDER

    In fact, we have a DUTY to NOT

    Have you ever noticed a pattern over the last forty years?

    Conservatives have this innate need to obey

    WITHOUT QUESTION

    Why do WE do that?

    I believe it is because we do not know the difference between the rule of law and the rule of men

    There is ONLY one course of action, Trump NEEDS to do his job

    Order employees to implement his order or to resign or be fired

    Then Congress can either impeach him or the judges

    As it is, obeying what is an ILLEGAL court order shows him to be WEAK and makes him unfit for the job!

    He is not doing me any good not doing his job to protect the nation from foreign threats.

    There is zero right under the constitution to immigrate or to illegally invade U.S. sovereign borders on the U.S. taxpayer’s lives, jobs, bankrupt dime & electoral future.

    A coup d’etat. Obama’s un-elected judicial outlaws & dictators have usurped the constitution and the legislative & executive branches of government to effectively seized power.
    Trump & Sessions need to get their Supreme Court nominee confirmed and fill over 100 court vacancies (with strict constructionists) without delay because until that job is done the Trump agenda will be obstructed non stop.

    Trump’s 90 day “travel ban” is inadequate. Under that travel ban foreign aliens who have VISAS, are legal residents or who served in the military are allowed re-entry.–i.e., The 9-11-01 terrorists, Fort Hood killer, Boston Bombers, Burka Christmas mass executioner, etc would be allowed a free pass back into the United States. Given that U.S. intelligence agencies confirm that Muslim “refugees” (mostly fighting age men) are impossible to vet a 90 day ban to “figure things out” from terrorist enclaves without data bases won’t change that reality. Ditto many “Allah Akbar” Muslim Jihadists are second generation because the root problem is Islam’s indoctrinated, condoned & tolerated Sharia/Wahabbism extremist ideology inconsistent with Western laws & cultural identity.
