SCOTUS Travel Ban Ruling Stops Liberal Activists in Their Tracks

Trump signed an executive order Friday, Jan. 27, 2017 that bans legal U.S. residents and visa-holders from seven Muslim-majority nations from entering the U.S. for 90 days and puts an indefinite hold on a program resettling Syrian refugees.

The Supreme Court’s decision to lift some of the restrictions on Donald Trump’s travel ban gives at least a partial victory to the Trump Administration. But, buried within the decision is what can only be considered a jab at liberal activist groups.

Dan McLaughlin, our old friend and colleague, hits the nail on the head here, because you just know every liberal activist group that is absolutely outraged over this executive order and the court’s decision was going to start prowling for “clients” in order to try and circumvent this decision.

It’s how liberalism works, isn’t it? If a law stops them from doing something they don’t like, they go to the courts. If the courts, don’t stand with them, they try to circumvent the courts in “creative” ways. They have always disliked what prevents them from doing what they want, but they try to dress it up as some sort of “justice.”

But, that’s not how the rule of law works. This is a solid and, most importantly, unanimous decision that stops these old tactics right in their tracks. Good on the Supreme Court for making this call and supporting the rule of law in this country.
