White House Senior Policy Adviser Stephen Miller explained on Sunday how the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision to uphold a temporary stay on President Donald Trump’s order to temporarily halt the American refugee program was a clear example of how the liberal circuit court tends to overreach.
Speaking on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” Miller explained, “We have equal branches of government in this country. The judiciary is not supreme.”
“A district judge in Seattle cannot force the president of the United States to change our laws and our Constitution because of their own personal views,” he added.
He also pointed out that the president has the power to suspend aliens entering the country if it is a matter of national interest, under the Immigration and Nationality Act, section 212(f)[8 U.S.C. 1182] adding that Trump’s authority to suspend the entry of aliens into this country is “beyond question,” both in law and according to the Constitution.
Miller also stressed that the 9th Circuit has a history of overreaching and has therefore seen its rulings overturned.
In an appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Miiler pointed out that that a district judge in Seattle “cannot make immigration law for the United States, cannot give foreign nationals and foreign countries rights they do not have and cannot prevent the president of the United States from suspending the admission of refugees from Syria.”
It doesn’t get much more clear than that.
The fight between the court and the president doesn’t look like it’s going to go away. After the court found it likely that that the president’s order violated constitutional rights of people who have no constitutional rights, it essentially put those “rights” ahead of national security.
That’s something the court shouldn’t have the power to do — especially when the president is clearly putting the safety of Americans first.
