Ingraham: SCOTUS Decision on Travel Ban ‘Not a Complete Victory’ for Trump

‘The Supreme Court tried to impart its own legislative authority, which it does not have under our constitution onto this Trump travel pause because that’s not what the Trump Administration conceived of’

EXCERPT:

INGRAHAM: "Well, it’s not a complete victory for the Trump Administration. There’s good news in it, no doubt. The court will hear the entire case in the fall term beginning in October of next year. The concurrence by Justice Thomas was really instructive. What he said, and it was joined by the new Justice Gorsuch, what he said is the idea that the Supreme Court would make up this new exception for individuals overseas who have bona fide connections to either people or entities in the United States can basically bypass the President’s travel pause. Now, that’s just ridiculous. The Supreme Court tried to impart its own legislative authority, which it does not have under our Constitution, onto this Trump travel pause. That wasn't what the Trump Administration conceived of. So they just made that whole thing up and now that’s going to be another hurdle for judges to clear when they have to consider exigent circumstances on the part of refugees or would-be travelers to the United States from those effective countries. So that is not a win for the President on that specific outline rule, group of exceptions."
