Supreme Court Supports Trump’s Travel Ban Leading A Huge Blow For The Left
President Trump on Tuesday celebrated the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold his controversial travel ban against Muslim-majority countries as a “profound vindication following months of hysterical commentary” from his political opponents.
The ban restricts access to countries with reported terrorist ties from entering the United States.
In case you missed it, Tucker Carlson spoke with the former Obama foreign policy adviser, David Tafuri, who was visibly upset about Trump’s victory. When Carlson asked Tafuri who was vetting the people coming from these countries with known terrorist ties the former Obama staffer comes unglued a bit.
When asked specifically about the hundreds of thousands of immigrants coming over from Somalia, the staffer has, what looks like, a mini-stroke and repeats ‘Djibouti’ half a dozen times. Referring to the fact that Somalia doesn’t give a legitimate vetting process and that Somalians have to go through Djibouti to travel. This should make you laugh.
As Reported By The Washington Examiner:
The U.S. Supreme Court gave President Trump one of the biggest victories of his administration Tuesday, upholding his travel ban restricting travel to the U.S. for foreign nationals from seven countries.
The court ruled 5-4 along ideological lines in favor of the Trump administration in the case, which marked the first time one of Trump’s policies was reviewed by the justices. Trump quickly praised the decision in a tweet:
SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS TRUMP TRAVEL BAN. Wow!

Chief Justice John Robertsdelivered the opinion for the majority. Justice Anthony Kennedy, the crucial swing vote in the case, sided with the conservative justices. Writing for the majority, Roberts said the president’s travel executive order “is squarely within the scope of presidential authority” under federal immigration law.
“The proclamation is expressly premised on legitimate purposes: preventing entry of nationals who cannot be adequately vetted and inducing other nations to improve their practices,” Roberts wrote. “The text says nothing about religion.”
