Well, if you didn’t believe we needed a wholesale overhaul of the judiciary before, this should do it. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, perhaps the most radical and lawless of all the appellate level courts, has just upheld the asinine ruling of a district judge in Seattle, blocking enforcement of President Trump’s Executive Order on immigration; a completely reasonable and sane policy that placed a temporary, 4 month halt on immigration from Iraq, Iran, Somalia, Libya, Sudan, and Yemen, in addition to placing an indefinite suspension on immigration from Syria.

Let us be very clear here: CONGRESS HAS PLENARY POWER OVER THE ISSUE OF IMMIGRATION! President Trump acted completely within his statutory authority when he issued his executive order. With this opinion issued by the 9th Circuit, they have overruled Congress, over 200 years of settled law, and opened up our nation to the entire world’s population. If a left-wing judge in Seattle and 3 judge panel in the 9th circuit has the power to control our immigration policy then we cease to be a sovereign nation. The Daily Wire Editor in-Chief Ben Shapiro has a good breakdown of five ways this ruling is completely nuts and unmoored from the constitution.

The question now is where do we go from here? The President responded on Twitter saying:

“SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!”

That is exactly the wrong response from the President. The courts are out of control and will only continue to act beyond their authority unless someone stops them. Issuing all caps tweets will not dissuade the left-wing judges from issuing left-wing opinions. What he should've done is issued a statement that reads along the lines of this:

 

The court has no jurisdiction over the issue of immigration, Congress does and Congress has given me, as President, the statutory authority needed to issue and enforce this Executive Order, which is designed to keep this country safe. I will ignore the lawless rulings from the District Judge in Seattle and the 9th Circuit, rulings which have no basis in the Constitution, 200 years of settled case law or the very founding of our nation, a founding largely based on the reclaiming of our sovereignty from a distant authority. The American people elected me President of the United States based on my promise to bring big change to Washington, we will no longer allow judges, acting on authority not granted to them, to continue stealing our sovereignty on issue after issue. While I will continue to ignore the rulings from the phony judges, I am now calling upon Congress to formally act under Article III, Section II of the Constitution to pass legislation stripping the lower level courts of any supposed authority to supersede Congress or the Executive branch on issues pertaining to immigration enforcement.

The American people spoke loud and clear in November and I intend to keep my promises to make America great again and safe again. In order to do that, we must start by reclaiming our sovereignty as a nation away from a radical, left-wing judicial system that is completely unmoored from the Constitution.

It is time for conservatives to stop playing by the left’s rules of “appointing better judges,” the judiciary is a swamp that needs to be drained. We are barely three weeks into the Trump administration and they are already wreaking havoc. It will only get worse from here, every single agenda item conservatives support will eventually get struck down or watered down in the courts.

The time is now for Congress and the President to reassert its authority over the court system.
