Trump's Travel Ban And The Law Of The Land

                 Here is the relevant passage from federal statute (8 U.S.C. §1182(f)) pertaining to Trump’s ‘travel ban:’ “Whenever the president finds that the entry of any aliens or 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 period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”
                That is perfectly clear. Remarkably so, in fact, for today’s bureaucracy. Unlike many of Obama’s declarations, proclamations, decrees and fiats, Trump’s actions in this critical matter were fully, unambiguously constitutional. Not that it matters to Democrats/progressives. Just as they didn’t care if Obama ignored, trampled on, or circumvented the constitution when it suited their “needs,” they now don’t care if Trump’s actions are legal and constitutional. If they don’t like them, they will do everything in their power to see that they are stillborn or aborted.

                In that, at least, they are consistent. They are happy to obstruct the founders, Republicanism, voters, the constitution, the country, and the president- as well as kill babies- if they believe it’s in their own interest. That is a special kind of hubris. 
               And a special kind of evil.
