On Friday, President Trump signed an executive order to delay entry into the United States from seven Muslim and ISIS heavy countries. As expected, the left is losing their minds over this.
Unfortunately for liberals, Trump is only acting on a law that the left passed and supported.
The law, 8 US Code 1182, inadmissible aliens. This law was written in 1952. It was passed by a Democrat-controlled Congress, House and Senate, and signed by a Democrat president.
“Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by president. 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, 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 nonimmigrants or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”
That’s right. While the left is screaming “unconstitutional” and “illegal,” they don’t even realize that it was their own people that wrote and passed the law.
Reports are currently spreading that a N.Y. federal judge has halted Trump’s EO, through a request from the ACLU. This ruling will surely be overturned when it becomes obvious that what Donald Trump is doing is one hundred percent legal.
The “ban,” which is really a delay, has been lifted for those people from those countries that either already have citizenship or a green card into the U.S. Otherwise, the delay is in full effect.
