Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton has weighed in on the decision by the Ninth Circus to keep in place an injunction placed by a lower court federal judge on Trump’s travel executive order:
“President Trump’s order to temporarily pause the refugee program and travel from seven war-torn countries is plainly legal under the Constitution and our immigration laws. No foreigner has a constitutional right to enter the United States and courts ought not second-guess sensitive national-security decisions of the president. This misguided ruling is from the Ninth Circuit, the most notoriously left-wing court in America and the most reversed court at the Supreme Court. I’m confident the administration’s position will ultimately prevail.”
I think Cotton has this right in all respects. No one was in the least bit surprised that the Ninth Circus upheld the lower court’s order. It has long been an out of touch and utterly lawless court that is routinely reversed by the Supreme Court.
