Ninth Circuit Court hardest hit?
In the wake of the Supreme Court reinstatement of substantially all of President Trump’s travel Executive Order, the left is responding as expected.
Left-wing and Islamic groups are outraged and don’t seem to understand the ruling . . . or the judicial role of the Supreme Court, while lefties on Twitter are in full meltdown mode.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) released a statement that appears to be premised on the 9-0 Supreme Court decision’s failure to weigh the socio-cultural climate CAIR perceives rather than the law and Constitution.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, said today’s decision by the U.S. Supreme Court allowing a limited version of the Trump administration’s “Muslim ban” executive orders to take effect ignores the Islamophobic origins of the policy and emboldens Islamophobes in the Trump administration.
. . . . “Today’s decision by the Supreme Court ignores the anti-Muslim bigotry that is at the heart of the travel ban executive orders and will inevitably embolden Islamophobes in the administration to expand efforts to target the Muslim community with unconstitutional and counterproductive policies. It also ignores the almost-unanimous rejection of the Muslim ban by lower courts due to its religious intolerance and racial animus.
“While the court continued blocking those parts of the Muslim ban that would prevent entry for anyone with a ‘credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States,’ it has opened the door to legal chaos and official overreach in embassies and at the border.
“We will work with our civil rights partners to offer a legal and legislative response as the Muslim ban moves forward on the ground and in the Supreme Court.”
Awad said today’s decision was particularly disturbing for American Muslims, coming as it does on the Islamic end-of-Ramadan holiday of Eid ul-Fitr.
In a similarly emotional and ideological response, South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT) released a statement focused on the “ideals” of the country (as they define them) rather than the rule of law.
South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT), a national South Asian racial justice and civil rights organization, strongly objects to the Supreme Court’s decision to reinstate part of President Trump’s “Muslim Ban”. It is disappointing that the highest court in our land will hear the federal government’s appeal despite federal appellate courts repeatedly striking down and staying key parts of the “Muslim Ban” as unquestionably unconstitutional.
“Reinstating any part of this administration’s patently discriminatory ‘Muslim Ban’ is contrary to the values of the United States and the ideals this country was founded on,” stated Suman Raghunathan, Executive Director of SAALT. “The President’s executive orders, and the Supreme Court’s decision to partially reinstate the ban, amounts to government sanctioned discrimination. It does not make America safe, it makes America afraid.”
Individuals from the six majority-Muslim countries identified in the President’s executive orders who do not have a “bona fide” relationship with a person or organization in the United States will be barred from entering the country. This administration’s dogged pursuit of a “Muslim Ban” has provided a prominent platform for white supremacists and anti-immigrant voices.
Meanwhile, the knee-jerk outpouring of outrage and indignation on Twitter is quite hilarious.

Let's not lose sight of the fact that President Trump's #MuslimBan is a massive boost to ISIS recruiting. He's playing into their hands.

Well, the idiotic travel ban is being upheld by the lunatic members of the Supreme Court. JFC!

I'm disturbed. Many Americans are celebrating the "Muslim Ban." Muslims represent 1/4 of global population. The U.S. turns against humanity.

Christians who celebrate the Supreme Court decision to allow part of the "Muslim Ban" forget that Jesus himself was a refugee/migrant. SMH.

This doesn’t mean there isn’t a great deal of support for the Supremes’ decision and for President Trump’s travel EO.
