Jay Sekulow: ‘The Constitution’s Not a Suicide Pact’ and ‘Doesn’t Give Refugees a Right’ to Enter the U.S.

Trump’s immigration order ‘is a pause until we can determine that vetting actually is taking place so that we know who can be admitted to the United States’


SEKULOW: "Look, the Constitution is not a suicide pact and the Constitution does not give refugees automatic status or a right to come into the United States. The immigration laws of the United States are just that, laws under the government that allow for various times to have individuals come in the United States under certain parameters. But this notion that the left is arguing that there is this constitutional right or statutory obligation for the United States to admit anybody for any reason is incorrect as a matter of law and it's incorrect as a matter of policy."
