Is A Constitutional Crisis Imminent In The Wake Of Trump’s Immigration Ban?
Trump’s immigration ban led to complete chaos over the weekend as protesters descended upon airports and the ACLU filed a number of lawsuits seeking to overturn an executive order which they argue is tantamount to a “Muslim ban” and a direct violation of the First Amendment. As we pointed out yesterday (see “Federal Judge Grants Partial Block Of Trump Immigration Order“), the executive order in question indefinitely suspended the resettlement of Syrian refugees and suspended all other refugee resettlement for 120 days. It also banned entry for 90 days of nationals from seven predominantly Muslim countries: Syria, Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen.
So far, four U.S. district judges — in Brooklyn, New York; Boston; Alexandria, Virginia; and Seattle — have issued temporary rulings blocking aspects of the immigration ban. That said, the provisional judicial rulings didn’t delve into deep constitutional issues of the ban which the ACLU asserts is a direct violation of the First Amendment. Per Bloomberg:… [read more]
LHWM opinion: “Still, other legal scholars assert that Trump’s immigration ban will stand up against Constitutional tests, with GWU professor Jonathan Turley saying the ban can’t be viewed as a “Muslim ban” given the “vast majority of Muslims around the world are not affected by the limitations placed on these seven countries.”
If the majority are not “affected” then who is stirring up all this unnecessary nonsense and why isn’t the media telling all the true facts. There is much more that could be posted.
The picture painted is, the world is ascending into chaos and lawlessness. If you are a believer in Jesus the Christ as stated in the bible you know this is spiritual warfare. America was going down and those orchestrating this event were confident America was primed and ready to have her place in the world leadership killed, her sovereignty stolen, and her unity destroyed. But God had other plans and He showed in one moment He alone is the sovereign God. God is in control today moving His plan of giving Israel all the land He promised and Jerusalem becoming the eternal place from which Jesus the Christ will rule. When a people begin to turn back to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob that in itself is a declaration of war against the rulers and principalities of darkness. Put on the whole armor of God and fight the coming battles with the right equipment. Pray for the protection of a President who finally stands by his word. Do not get emotionally caught up in what is happening but pray for the peace of Christ to guard you from doubt and worry. Be a faithful witness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Look up Christ Jesus is coming.
Opinion by BIBLE PROPHECY TRACKER: Monday night outside the Supreme Court at a Democratic leadership news conference about President Donald Trump’s immigration executive order, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) referencing the Statue of Liberty said, “We will not let this evil order extinguish that great torch.”
Schumer choked back tears over a ban on immigrants from 7 countries that were determined to be terror hot spots by Barack Hussein Obama. Schumer had no such tears for the 98.9% Syrian Christian refugees who were denied entry into the United States because they were not Muslim (here).
The attacks on Donald Trump for his proposal to ban Muslims from entering the U.S through executive authority are patently dishonest. According to George Washington University professor Jonathan Turley: “The ban can’t be viewed as a Muslim ban given the vast majority of Muslims around the world are not affected by the limitations placed on these seven countries.”
Six presidents have used the executive power to bar different classes of immigrants, including Barack Obama, who used it 6 times (here), but voiced outrage over the president’s executive action on Monday.
President Trump acted on Section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 which states:
“Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he 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 nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”
The dishonesty from the Christian-hating left is not new, but somehow feels more dangerous.
