Score: Pres. Trump: 72 — 9th Circuit Court of Appeals: 0

President’s moratorium on non-vetted “refugees” places national security above political naïveté

Jessica Vaughan, Director of Policy Studies for the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), has just released a compelling, fact-filled  report that places President Donald Trump squarely on the right side of this crucial national security issue.

A review of information compiled by a Senate committee in 2016 reveals that 72 individuals from the seven countries — Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen — covered in President Trump’s vetting executive order have been convicted in terror cases since the 9/11 attacks. These facts stand in stark contrast to the assertions by the Ninth Circuit judges who have blocked the president’s order on the basis that there is no evidence showing a risk to the United States in allowing aliens from these seven terror-associated countries to enter the United States.

In June 2016 the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, then chaired by new Attorney General Jeff Sessions, released a report on individuals convicted in terrorist cases. Using open sources (because the Obama administration refused to provide government records), the report found that 380 out of 580 people convicted in these cases since 9/11 were foreign-born. The report is no longer available on the Senate website, but a summary published by Fox News is available here.

SRAZ includes the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit denial issued Feb. 9, 2017 by a three-judge panel. The left-leaning court is the most overturned in the nation.

    Obviously the Ninth Circus’ decision was anti-Trump and political. Has the judiciary now joined the “Resist” movement?

    • East Valley Conservative says:

      This court has long had a reputation for being liberal. That stance is certainly reflected in its “denial.” Thanks for the link. It was interesting reading verbal contortions.

    Background on the three 9th circuit judges. Obama’s pick is a real doozy as you would expect.

    Stephen Miller is good, link has video:

    The point I want to make to you, George, and the point I want to make to your listeners, is that we have equal branches of government in this country,” Miller told George Stephanopoulos during an interview on “This Week” Sunday. “The judiciary is not supreme. A district judge in Seattle cannot force the President of the United States to change their laws and our constitution because of their own personal views.”

    takes it farther, no backing down…….

    “The reality is, is that this is not a disagreement about the law and the constitution. There is no constitutional right for a citizen in a foreign country who has no status in America to demand entry into our country. Such a right cannot exist; such a right will never exist. This is an ideological disagreement between those who believe we should have borders and should have controls, and those who believe there should be no borders and no controls. That’s the essence of this debate, and the bottom line is the president’s power in this area of represent the apex of executive authority. And we have multiple tools across multiple fronts to ensure that we are preventing terrorists’ infiltration of our country, and to ensure that those who enter our country share our values and support our people, something that is supported overwhelmingly by the vast majority of the American public.”

  5. Saguaro Sam says: reporting that DHS Secretary Kelly has visited the AZ southern sector with the Gov and the Sheriffs of Yuma; Cochise; Pima, and Santa Cruz counties.

    It is reported that the Democrat sheriff from Santa Cruz County,
    Mr. Estrada, was the only one who questioned the need for a border wall.

    Two of the sheriffs asked for permission to re-implement successful programs that had been shut down by Obama.

    From the photos, it appears that they have their own version of
