The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld the block on President Trump’s travel ban. This court is well known for its judicial activism so the decision isn’t all that surprising.
Leaders who support the rule of law and the Constitution are speaking out about the overreach. Conservative firebrand Trey Gowdy reminded us that the Ninth Circuit has a reputation for being reversed.
The South Carolina Congressman pointed out the failed logic with the decision of the court to use a 2001 case that has nothing to do with the Executive Order. The Court was grasping for straws that will possibly fall apart at the Supreme Court.

Gowdy also states that non citizens don’t have a right to come to the United States. “It seems clear to most of us – not on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals — there is no right to come to this country for non-citizens of the United States. It also seems clear judges are neither in a position, practically or jurisprudentially, to second guess national security determinations made by the Commander in Chief. There is a reason we elect the Commander in Chief and do not elect federal judges,” his statement said.
This is common sense. Nobody has a right to come here if they aren’t a citizen. This decision appears to be political in nature.
As the video below details, this is likely headed to the Supreme Court.
Justice Scalia’s seat on the Supreme Court is still vacant. That could have an impact on any decision as the court is evenly divided at the moment. This is why we need Judge Gorsuch to be confirmed quickly. It’s unlikely that he will be there in time for a decision on this matter, but Democrats are challenging President Trump on everything, so it’s imperative we get the vacancy filled!
Share this if you agree with Trey Gowdy that non-citizens don’t have a right to come here!
