Looks like the travel ban is here to stay. The original version expired Sunday and rather than allow the protections to lapse, the Trump administration immediately announced a new set of restrictions.
On Monday afternoon the Supreme Court canceled arguments set for October 10 to determine the legality of the original ban.
“The court had been ready to hear arguments about the legality of a 90-day ban on travelers from six mostly Muslim countries and a 120-day ban on refugees from around the world,” the New York Post reports.
“The ban expired Sunday and was replaced by a new policy that affects eight counties and has no expiration date.”
Democrats attempted to stifle the travel ban by burying it in the legal system, but it didn’t work. The president has the right to determine who’s allowed into America. Our safety matters a lot more than liberal PC nonsense about refugees.
The revised ban allows customs agents to make exceptions for certain individuals. People from an affected country who demonstrate that being denied access to the U.S. would be an undue hardship, and can prove that they’re not a security threat, can still enter.
The Supreme Court isn’t going to hear arguments on the original because it would be a waste of time. Although, I wouldn’t put it past Democrats to file another host of lawsuits against Trump’s new restrictions.
