Yeah, I’m gloating, deal with it.
On January 28, 2017 I published the following article:
Oddly enough, I referred to Title 8, Chapter 12, US Code 1182, courtesy of Cornell University Law’s website.
In my argument I presented enough history where even the most ignorant leftist would have to acknowledge that both modern Republican and gasp, Democrat Presidents have used that U.S. code to enforce immigration law to varying degrees.
I was called names. Insulted (like I cared), belittled, had demands from stupid commielib trolls to produce my law degree.
Tell you what ladies, gents, and WTFers (for the gender fluid whatever that is), I’ll one up you; here is the key excerpt from today’s Supreme Court decision in Trump v. Hawaii regarding the travel ban today:
2. The President has lawfully exercised the broad discretion granted to him under §1182(f) to suspend the entry of aliens into the United States. Pp. 9–24.
(a) By its terms, §1182(f) exudes deference to the President in every clause. It entrusts to the President the decisions whether and when to suspend entry,
whose entry to suspend, for how long, and on what conditions. It thus vests the President with “ample power” to impose entry restrictions in addition to
those elsewhere enumerated in the INA. Sale, 509 U. S., at 187. The Proclamation falls well within this comprehensive delegation. The sole prerequisite set forth in
§1182(f) is that the President “find” that the entry of the covered aliens “would be detrimental to the interests of the United States.”
The President has undoubtedly fulfilled that requirement here. He first ordered DHS and other agencies to conduct a comprehensive
evaluation of every single country ’s compliance with the information and risk assessment baseline. He then issued a Proclamation with
extensive findings about the deficiencies and their impact. Based on that review, he found that restricting entry of aliens who could not be
vetted with adequate information was in the national interest.
What is so hard to understand about that now versus January 2017?
Nothing to anyone with common sense, much less a law degree.
So to all those who disagreed with my assessment then and the SCOTUS decision today, I have some advice:
Suck it up buttercup.
Here is the decision in full for those who wish to read a masterpiece in the obvious as the liberal simply wanted to try to test and humiliate President Trump’s will:
