    Washington (CNN) The Supreme Court has upheld President Donald Trump's travel ban.

    The ruling was 5-4 along partisan lines, with Chief Justice John Roberts writing for the conservative majority.

    The ruling sends a strong message that Trump has broad powers under immigration law to act to protect national security and that statements made during a campaign may not be legally determinative of the President's intent.

    "The Proclamation is squarely within the scope of Presidential authority," Roberts wrote.

    Heh...
    May the FORCE be with you!

    But look at the countries in question:

    Iran-enemy of the U.S. and a terror state
    Sudan-Country in civil war, a 3rd world shithole, and a terror state.
    Syria-Country in civil war who gasses their own people and ISIS is holed up there.
    Yeman-3rd world shithole and terror nation
    Somalia-3rd world shithole and terror state

    I mean, what's the problem?

    I am actually very disappointed with the 5-4 vote. It should have been 9-0 based on the merits of the case. It proves, if proof be needed, that the leftists on the Supreme Court have no regard for the Constitution. Even if it had been an explicit Moslem ban (which I don't support) it would have been lawful and constitutional. Moslems, polygamists, cannibals and Aztecs who are OUTSIDE the United States have NO first amendment protections.

    We damn well need to keep a Senate majority and the WH for the next six years, appoint and confirm as many new justices as possible. Preferably young and devoted to the Constitution.

    Rush said the same thing. The Constitution deliberately grants this power to the President. It just shows the liberal jobs aren't interested in following the Constitution.
    Liberals! The real fascists.

    The rule of law, civility and the constitution means nothing to the left. they want control however they can get it.
    I love the sound of liberal heads exploding in the morning!!

    Toxically masculine and proud of it!

    I will give up my guns when the liberals give up their illegal aliens.

    The news showed a whole bunch of white people carrying signs and protesting this decision.

    Who are these people?
    Where do they live?
    Who do they personally know that is affected by this travel ban?

    if they are anything like the liberals I knew, they live in nice neighborhoods and hold jobs (or attend schools) that are completely unrelated to the low class areas that actually have to put up with this riff raff affecting their lives in any way. It is very easy to hold a 'welcome' sign up boldly when you are not the one providing the spare bedroom.
