Republican-appointed judges on 9th Circuit voice support for Trump travel ban

Five judges on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals have broken ranks with their colleagues and voiced support for the legality of President Trump’s original travel ban.

The judges, all Republican appointees, said Wednesday they disagreed with the three-judge appeals panel that struck down the initial ban on travel from seven Muslim majority nations the administration said have terrorism problems and an inability to help the U.S. vet incoming immigrants.

"Whatever we, as individuals, may feel about the President or the Executive Order, the President's decision was well within the powers of the presidency," the judges stated in an unsolicited filing.

They also stated:

"The personal attacks on the distinguished district judge and our colleagues were out of all bounds of civic and persuasive discourse -- particularly when they came from the parties," they wrote.

"Such personal attacks treat the court as though it were merely a political forum in which bargaining, compromise, and even intimidation are acceptable principles," the judges added. "The courts of law must be more than that, or we are not governed by law at all."

Something can be legal yet immoral. I.e. segregation.

These are six countries that breed and train terrorists. President Trump is trying to reduce the number of terrorists coming into our country daily. Why wouldn't anyone in their right mind not support being safer from terrorists. It just seems to me that President Trump is trying to do his job and keep America safer than Obama ever did. So i wish the liberals, democrats, news media and everybody else that are trying to oppose everything he does, would just stop and get out of the way and let the president do his job.
