The lower court’s decision to temporary block a key provisions of President Trump’s executive order banning travel from some Middle East and African countries, was supported by the federal appeals court.
In writing Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals Chief Judge Roger Gregory said that the executive order “in text speaks with vague words of national security, but in context drips with religious intolerance, animus, and discrimination.” The statement also says that even though the president has the power to limit entry to the country “that power is not absolute.”
This sounds absolutely bizarre to anyone who has even a little understanding of the Constitution, the authority of the president, or how the world works in general.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions understands this very well, and that’s why he made the following statement.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said that the Justice Department will request the Supreme Court to review the appeals court ruling that blocked the President’s travel ban.
He also said that the Justice Department “strongly disagrees” and will continue to support the President’s order. He stated that the court’s ruling blocks Trump’s “efforts to strengthen this country’s national security.”
Sessions said that Trump is not required to accept people from “countries that sponsor or shelter terrorism until he determines that they can be properly vetted” and that they aren’t a security threat.
These court rulings that are against Trump are political posturing and it’s despicable.
