(NationalSentinel) Legal experts and scholars who are monitoring the federal judiciary’s stay of President Donald J. Trump’s executive order banning travel to the U.S. from seven countries known to harbor terrorists say that some activist Left-wing judges are essentially trying to create a constitutional right to immigrate to America.
As reported byÂ Infowars, having a lone federal judge in Seattle issue the stay is bizarre in and of itself for several reasons: 1) No such stays were issued with President Obama issued executive ordersÂ implementing similar travel bans from some of the same countries; and 2) the Constitution vests national security policy decisions in the Executive Branch, as does statutory law. So while federal courts may have “judicial review” authority, a president’s decision,Â taken in the name of protecting the country, to order a ban in the importation of potential violence seems out of the purview of federal courts:
Do the travel ban court cases have jurisdiction? Did the States of Washington & Minnesota even have standingÂ to sue on behalf of foreign citizens?Â
Why were Obamaâ€™s decisions on borders & immigration not reviewable by the courts a year ago, but are now, even though itâ€™s still the same Department of Justice personnel?

As we have suggested, Trump should ignore the judgeÂ and instruct his agencies to enforce hisÂ original order because we are on a war footing against terrorist forces.
