The Tide Turns :: By Bill Wilson

Remember the vitriol over President Donald Trump “banning” Muslims from entry into the U.S.? The Supreme Court has ruled that the president is well within the law to scrutinize

and ban entry of persons with no legitimate connection (by family, academic, or job related) because “the balance tips in favor of the government’s compelling need to provide for the Nation’s security.”

The Court appeared to be street smart as well spelling out that “a nonprofit group devoted to immigration issues may not contact foreign nationals from the designated countries, add them to client lists, and then secure their entry by claiming injury from the exclusion.” The Court will reconsider the ban in October.

Justice Clarence Thomas wrote the opinion for the unanimous decision. He said:

Today’s compromise will burden executive officials with the task of deciding-on peril of contempt, whether individuals from the six affected nations who wish to enter the United States have a sufficient connection to a person or entity in this country… The compromise also will invite a flood of litigation until this case is finally resolved on the merits, as parties and courts struggle to determine what exactly constitutes a “bona fide relationship,” who precisely has a “credible claim”

 to that relationship, and whether the claimed relationship was formed “simply to avoid §2(c)” of Executive Order No. 13780, ante, at 11, 12.

Thomas also cautioned that the lawsuits emanating from the SCOTUS decision will go back to the courts whose decisions were overturned:

 And litigation of the factual and legal issues that are likely to arise will presumably be directed to the two district courts whose initial orders in these cases this Court has now- unanimously-found sufficiently questionable to be stayed as to the vast majority of the people potentially affected.

In other words, the leftists judges on the fourth and Ninth circuit courts will further muddy the legal waters by entertaining the litigation that attempts to define a “bona fide relationship” that would allow entry to the country from Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, Libya, Syria, and Yemen.

The rising tide of immigration and refugees coming from terrorist sponsoring nations has been cut in half since President Trump took office. The interest of national security overrides the lunacy of the left whose insistence that people who are not citizens of the U.S. have the right to come here even if they threaten our personal safety, and the reasonable vetting of immigrants and refugees is a violation of their rights.

As the Lord said in Leviticus 24:22, “You shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for one of your own country.”

If the stranger comes illegally or intends to not abide by our laws, that stranger should not be allowed to come to or remain in our nation. The  Supreme Court has for a brief time turned the tide from those who wish to overthrow the U.S. using violence and crisis.

Have a blessed and powerful day!
