Voices of sanity on Trump travel restrictions surface on 9th Circuit
A feud is reportedly playing out among judges on the federal appeals court that upheld a block on President Trump's original travel ban.Liberals on the court appear to be persisting on their wrong-headed decisions. I think the Trump administration should ask the Supreme Court to intervene immediately because of the urgency of the issues.
Politico reported Saturday that five judges on the San Francisco-based Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals this week publicly recorded their disagreement with last month's ruling made by three of their colleagues.
Days later, on Friday, another filing from the court's conservative justices argued that most people affected by the original travel ban are not entitled to Constitutional protections, because they have not yet entered the U.S.
"The vast majority of foreigners covered by the executive order have no Due Process rights," Judge Alex Kozinski wrote in the filing, joined by four other conservative justices.
"Nevertheless, the district court enjoined the order’s travel provisions in their entirety, even as applied to the millions of aliens who have no constitutional rights whatsoever because they have never set foot on American soil."
