Report: 72 Convicted of Terror Charges From Countries Named in Travel Ban
 (AP)
By Sandy Fitzgerald   |   Saturday, 11 Feb 2017 03:54 PM

Since the 9/11 attacks, 72 people coming from the seven Middle Eastern countries named in President Donald Trump's executive order on travel and refugees have been convicted on terrorism charges, according to a new report released Saturday.


According to the nonpartisan Center for Immigration Studies, the report stands "in stark contrast to the assertions by the Ninth Circuit judges who have blocked the president's order on the basis that there is no evidence showing a risk to the United States in allowing aliens from these seven terror-associated countries to come in."

...

At least 17 of those who have been convicted claimed to be refugees, while three came into the United States as students.

Twenty-five more eventually became American citizens, the report shows.

According to a breakdown of the countries and the numbers of people who were eventually convicted of terror crimes:

    Somalia: 20
    Yemen: 19
    Iraq: 19
    Syria: 7
    Iran: 4
    Libya: 2

Jessica Vaughan, the center's director of policy studies, said she based the report on information from a report in 2016 from the Senate Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Trump has now confirmed, at his press conference, that there will be a new executive order by the middle of next week. He says that it is being 'tailored to the court decision' by 'some of the best lawyers in the country' but that it would give him 'pretty much everything' that the old one did.

It will be interesting to see what it contains, because if he tries to use a series of semantic dodges to get around the ruling, while leaving the offending measures substantially in place, it will be blocked almost as soon as it is issued.

That would have been last week, so the lawyers are still trying to find ways around the 9th circuit ruling.

Four states suing to block Trump's new travel ban
BY REID WILSON - 03/09/17 02:37 PM EST

Democratic attorneys general in four states announced Thursday that they will try to block the Trump administration's revised executive order on travel in court, pushing for the temporary restraining order that halted the first order to remain intact.
 
In early February, U.S. District Judge James Robart issued an order blocking the first version of the ban, which applied visitors from seven Muslim-majority countries and all immigrants. Robart’s ruling was upheld by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, leading the Trump administration to issue the new order on Monday.
 
Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson (D) said Thursday his office will file a motion asking Robart to reaffirm that the order applies to the new version of the travel ban, which is scheduled to go into effect next Thursday, March 16.

...

The new ban, which some legal experts have said avoids some of the pitfalls that hampered the initial version, now blocks citizens of six Muslim-majority countries: Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Iraqi citizens, covered by the initial ban, will be allowed to travel to the United States under the new order.
...
Asked about Hawaii’s lawsuit, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Thursday the administration remains hopeful that its new ban will survive court scrutiny.
 
"I think we feel very comfortable that the executive order that was crafted is consistent with — we’re going to go forward on this — but I think by all means, I don’t— we feel very confident with how that was crafted and the input that was given,” Spicer said Thursday.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Yeah, interesting isnt it? Bob Ferguson needs to be investigated. He is a liberal obstructionist who thinks hes a tough guy! It shows he and his buddies are illegitimate.

Hopefully Trump will drain the swamp of these lowlifes in legal offices all over America, and nominate real legal minds across America while he is in office. Enough with these fools who legislate from the bench.

No coincidence there.
Tiffany Gabbay - 3.16.2017

It's no coincidence that U.S. District Judge Derrick Kahala Watson, who just halted President Donald Trump’s revised travel ban, is an Obama law school classmate and Obama appointee to the federal bench.

... This is an affront to anyone whose primary goal is to keep Americans safe and who realize the truth: that this decision is solely about sabotaging our president, even at the expense of our nation's safety.

Plaintiff behind Trump travel ban runs Muslim Brotherhood mosque

http://www.wnd.com/2017/03/plaintiff-behind-trump-exec-order-ban-runs-muslim-brotherhood-mosque/


Quote
The main plaintiff in the Hawaii case blocking President Trump’s revised temporary travel ban is an imam with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

The irony is hard to miss: Trump has talked about declaring the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization, and now it is a Brotherhood-backed imam who is playing a key role in blocking his executive order on immigration.

Imam Ismail Elshikh, 39, leads the largest mosque in Hawaii and claims he is suffering “irreparable harm” from the president’s executive order, which places a 90-day ban on travel to the U.S. from six countries.

Trump would probably do this if others would follow him, but they won't. There is no way that law enforcement or border enforcement or the State Dept would defy a court ruling and follow Trump down that road.

I have heard people like Alex Jones calling the judges 'mutinous'. LOL! The three branches of government are co-equal and the juduciary are acting within their authority, whether we agree with them about a particular case or not.

There are precedents when the Commander-in-Chief
sent the Judiciary packing.



ANDREW JACKSON vs JOHN MARSHALL

To accommodate thousands of whites pouring into the region, Georgia and other southeastern states invalidated federal treaties guaranteeing Indian claims to their lands. Congress sided with the states. So did President Andrew Jackson, who’d been a renowned Indian fighter as a younger man. The Cherokees sought redress through the federal courts and their litigation reached the Supreme Court, then led by Chief Justice John Marshall. The court ruled in their favor — for all the good it did them.

Horace Greeley later quoted President Jackson as saying, “John Marshall has made his decision. Now let him enforce it.” Most Jackson biographers believe that quote to be apocryphal, but several reliable witnesses did hear Jackson say he thought the Marshall court had decided erroneously, and in any event, the government did not enforce it, which led to the removal of 16,000 Cherokees, 4,000 of whom died on the “Trail of Tears.”

ABRAHAM LINCOLN vs ROGER B. TANEY

In 1861, pro-secession riots broke out in Baltimore after the Maryland legislature declined to leave the Union. To keep a lid on things, Gov. Thomas Hicks took measures to prevent the movement of Union troops through his state, which is how a Baltimore County militia officer named John Merryman came to be accused of vandalizing railroad tracks between Baltimore and Washington, D.C.

A justifiably irked Abraham Lincoln ordered Merryman’s arrest, but here’s where things got interesting. Instead of being charged with a crime, Merryman was simply apprehended at his home on May 25, 1861, and taken to Fort McHenry where he was locked up.

Chief Justice Roger B. Taney, though aware that Lincoln had “suspended” the right of habeas corpus on April 27, issued a writ to Fort McHenry’s commanding officer to produce Merryman. The commander refused, citing his commander-in-chief’s order. Taney ruled that only Congress held such power, and that the president had superseded his constitutional authority. Lincoln did not verbally abase Taney, as Donald Trump surely would have, but he didn’t obey the court’s order, either.

When questioned by Ohio Democrats, Lincoln responded in writing.

“You ask … whether I really claim that I may override all the guaranteed rights of individuals, on the plea of conserving the public safety,” he wrote. “By necessary implication, when rebellion or invasion comes, the decision is to be made, from time to time; and I think the man whom, for the time, the people have, under the Constitution, made the commander-in-chief, of their Army and Navy, is the man who holds the power.”

'THE NINTH CIRCUS’: JUDGE JEANINE SLAMS HAWAII JUDGE FOR TRAVEL BAN RULING 'I think all the refugees should go to Hawaii'

For the record, the state of Hawaii has taken in ZERO refugees.

In response to this fact Jeanine said, “I think all the refugees should be sent to Hawaii.”

Let’s look at Hawaii’s refugee program!

Checking Wrapsnet this morning, here is a summary of the refugees admitted to Hawaii in the last 14 years, 5 months and 10 days:

Of the total 123 refugees they “welcomed” to Hawaii, the largest number (66) were Vietnamese who came in the early years (FY03,04,05).  Another 40 were Burmese (most Burmese are Christians).  Only 5 from any Middle East country came.  In 2004, 1 Iranian was resettled there and in 2013 they got a grand total of 4 Iraqis.  None of the thousands of Syrians admitted to the US in the last 2 years were seeded in Hawaii!

A smattering of Russians and Ukrainians were placed there over the years.

There were no refugees sent to Hawaii at all in FY11 and last year!

Zero Africans were planted in Hawaii in all those years.  That is interesting since when I read some books on Obama’s father arriving in Hawaii in about 1960, see especially this book, I learned that Hawaiians were not partial to Africans and that Barack Sr. attracted much attention because of his race and demeanor.  Hmmmm?

Why wasn’t the state of Hawaii begging for refugees over the last 14 years, 5 months and 10 days?

Seems it might be just the right time to send Hawaii its fair share of Somalis, Ethiopians, Eritreans, and Congolese!

Judge Considers Ordering President Donald Trump
to Double 50,000 Refugee Inflow to the United States

NEIL MUNRO - 16 Mar 2017

A federal District Court judge in Maryland is considering whether he should order President Donald Trump to double the annual inflow of refugees up to 100,000 per year.

Any demand by the judge that the federal government airbus an extra 50,000 migrants — including many adherents of Islam’s sharia legal system — into American neighborhoods would be an unusual intervention into government roles normally left to the elected President and Congress.

If actually implemented, the judge’s plan also would be extremely expensive for Americans, because state and local communities subsidize each new immigrant with roughly $1,600 each per year for decades.

The judge revealed his proposal in a footnote in his March 15 decision where he denounced Trump’s reformist Executive Orders, which sharply curbs the inflow of refugees from war-torn Islamic countries.

Quote
The plaintiffs’ request for 100,000 refugees each year was made by lawyers for the International Refugee Assistance Protect, HIAS Inc., a so-called “VOLAG” which is paid by federal agencies to import refugees, and by members of the Middle East Studies Association.

Hawaii man with Syrian family wants to join travel ban suit
Associated Press
February 9, 2017
http://www.staradvertiser.com/2017/02/09/breaking-news/hawaii-man-with-syrian-family-wants-to-join-travel-ban-suit/

Hawaii’s attorney general wants to add a new plaintiff to the state’s lawsuit challenging President Donald Trump’s travel ban on people from seven mostly Muslim countries: Ismail Elshikh, the imam of the Muslim Association of Hawaii, whose mother-in-law is a Syrian national living in Syria.

State Attorney General Doug Chin is asking a judge to partially lift a stay in the case to allow the state to file an amended complaint that details the effect the travel ban would have on Elshikh’s family and others in Hawaii.

Elshikh, his wife and their five children are U.S. citizens, according to court documents the state filed Wednesday. The executive order will prevent his mother-in-law from visiting the family in Hawaii: “The family is devastated,” said the state’s proposed amended complaint. The travel ban has created additional obstacles to completing the mother-in-law’s visa application process, said Hawaii attorney general spokesman Josh Wisch.

The executive order “conveys to them a message that their own country would discriminate against individuals who share their ethnicity, including members of their own family, and who hold the same religious beliefs,” the document said.

Chin filed Hawaii’s lawsuit last week, noting that the ban will also have a “chilling effect” on the state’s tourism industry.

Hawaii has hired a Washington, D.C. law firm to help. The attorney general’s office didn’t immediately have the costs available, but Chin said the firm is working at a reduced rate.

Earlier this week, U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson suspended the case while a nationwide injunction on the travel ban remains in place. Three judges— including one from Honolulu— on the San Francisco-based 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Thursday against immediately reinstating Trump’s travel ban, which temporarily suspended the nation’s refugee program and immigration from seven mostly Muslim countries that have raised terrorism concerns.

Watson is giving the federal government until Monday (Ed: that would be Feb. 13th) to respond to Hawaii’s request.

========================

It sounds like they halted their case back in February, in order to bring in the Imam - would that have been because they needed a citizen to have standing in the suit?
Not sure... but this is not in response to the second EO (the revised EO)... this was based on the first. So it sounds like the first is continued into the second EO...?


BTW, I am familiar with the mosque (it's the only one in Honolulu), and it's located near the University of Hawaii (where Obama's father was a student), and directly across the street from the Punahou School - Obama's alma mater. It's a small building, more like a big house, in a quiet neighborhood. I think the location was based on serving students from Punahou and the University. It may be that the imam's mother-in-law is Syrian, but the ban also affects students (have they worked out the student visa exemption thing?)

At any rate, the knee-jerk response of OK - SEND ALL REFUGEES TO HAWAII is made without understanding the situation in Hawaii.


There are thousands of homeless people in Hawaii. They live in shanty-towns in Honolulu, they live in campsites on the other islands, particularly the "big island" of Hawaii. The state has a huge problem - and it's a magnet for the homeless because the weather is conducive to living outdoors. Sounds like heaven to someone who's only possession is a sleeping bag.
So the answer is not the juvenile "SEND ALL REFUGEES TO HAWAII" response; I'm sure if you did a geographical comparison to other states, the actual inhabitable land in Hawaii is probably closer to Rhode Island, if not smaller. And its PACKED with people. And by the way, native Hawaiians have nothing to do with this. They are so disenfranchised, they have little to no say in state politics. So leave them out of this bs. Think: native americans - no power, no money, lots of alcoholism, had their land stolen by missionaries and plantation owners, etc. If you really think about it, they're the people who have suffered from 'refugees' who came to the islands with bibles and pineapple plants, then proceeded to take it over.



Facts
http://hopeserviceshawaii.org/message-from-the-ceo/facts/
On every island in Hawaii families are sleeping in tents on the beaches, tucked away in the lava, and camped in public parks. Homeless parents work full time jobs while children do their homework by flashlight – in cars parked in Hawaii’s towns and cities. Many of our elderly have to decide between medication or food at the grocery store, and the mentally ill of our state are left with little resource but to sleep outside. Homelessness in Hawaii is a growing epidemic, and these statistics are heartbreaking:

Statewide, 12-15,000 people are homeless at some point of the year.
At least 6,300 are homeless at any given day.
Islandwide,
33% of those living without housing are children.
33% of the homeless are of Native Hawaiian ethnicity.
8% of those homeless are veterans.
Hawaii County had the highest proportion of first-time homeless clients at 51%.
The number of homeless has increased 68% since 2013, from 557 to 1,394.

Take a look at the Big Island’s current state of homelessness and the rental market:

'THE NINTH CIRCUS’: JUDGE JEANINE SLAMS HAWAII JUDGE FOR TRAVEL BAN RULING 'I think all the refugees should go to Hawaii'
https://www.infowars.com/the-ninth-circus-judge-jeanine-slams-hawaii-judge-for-travel-ban-ruling/

After viewing the Judge Jeanine clip, I think these Obama judges are trying to set Trump up for impeachment. It fits the rumored Hillary plan for him. The last thing Trump wants to do is appear outright defiant. If he does, the trap is set. I believe there are enough RINOS in Congress to go along with it. We have the list of turncoats that were waiting for the Access Hollywood tape to be released. Skullduggery.

Q: Can a US president overrule a federal court judge? Who is responsible for enforcing decisions?

...

Today it is far less likely that a President could get away with ignoring a court order like President Jackson so famously did. Not only because of the public's perception of the justice system and finality of judicial orders, but also the fact that in modern times no President has done it (at least not openly). It would also likely rankle the modern Congress and infuriate the press. For a President to defy a legal judicial order today, he would need support not only from Congress, but also from the public at large and a compliant or complacent media. To do otherwise would risk Impeachment.



The courts rely on the cooperation of the Executive branch for the enforcement of their orders. In theory, a President who disagrees with a decision from the judiciary could choose not to enforce the decision, or, to enforce it without much vigor.

But…

If a President chose to defy the courts, that might become the basis for impeachment proceedings, which is what brings the legislative branch into play — another example of the “checks and balances” between the three co-equal branches of the federal government.

AMERICAN COURTS CREATING 'AFFIRMATIVE RIGHT TO IMMIGRATE'
Author warns judges making up law 'out of thin air'

The courts aren’t just stripping the president of his authority to stop national security threats. They aren’t just endangering Americans. They aren’t just basing their rulings on pure ideology instead of the law.

The American judiciary is creating an “affirmative right to immigrate” to the United States for every person on earth, says Daniel Horowitz, senior editor at Conservative Review and author of “Stolen Sovereignty: How to Stop Unelected Judges from Transforming America.”



He explains the federal judges who blocked President Trump’s immigration
order are challenging the most fundamental aspect of American sovereignty.


“Even President Trump’s original orders were grounded in precedent and statute,” Horowitz told WND. “But these federal judges who have issued a halt to President Trump’s new executive orders have gone even farther. Not only did they simply refuse to address the legislation that gives Trump the authority to issue these orders, they started creating new rights out of thin air, which gives practically everyone in the world a future affirmative right to immigrate to the United States. Obviously, that means the end of the United States in any meaningful sense.”

Quote
... Horowitz says Congress must strip the courts of any power to adjudicate any case forcing the entry of a foreign national into the country against the will of the other branches.

“We shouldn’t have to do any of these things, but the situation has gone too far,” said Horowitiz. “We are now essentially being governed by unelected, radically left-wing judges unmoored by statute or precedent who are simply dictating law to the rest of the country based on their ideology. The Constitution works as a system of checks and balances. It is time for the legislature and the president to check these judicial supremacists.

“Otherwise, we won’t just lose our constitutional system. We lose the country itself.”

... and when we get Gorsuch on board we
can probably win the SCOTUS as well. This
may be a good time to take-'em-on, as
HOROWITZ says (above) with new Congressional
actions ... we can't go on like this ...
judges do NOT make law.

... and there IS impeachment of judges.

I agree with Jeanine. The US Constitution does not apply to non-citizens outside the borders. To attempt to extend US legal jurisdiction like that because of personal bias is simply insane. How can one unelected federal judge defacto set policy for the entire nation?

Impeachment of a federal judge, much less SEVERAL ninth circus judges is not likely.

The impeachment of federal judges, in fact, is often an even more murky process than the impeachment of other officials. While Article II, Section 4 contains some vague guidelines for what warrants impeachment proceedings – and this section relates to federal officials in general – Article Three only explains that judges are supposed to remain in office only while in “good Behavior.” This is an incredibly open-ended standard.  


Only 15 federal judges have ever been impeached and only eight have ever been convicted and removed (most recently, Judge Thomas Porteous of Louisiana in 2010). But even then, the “articles of impeachment,” the list of misconduct the accused is on trial for, have described quite a wide range of inappropriate behavior.

It might well end up in SCOTUS, and those who are relying on Gorsuch to rule in Trump's favor might be sorely disappointed.

There are precedents when the Commander-in-Chief
sent the Judiciary packing.



Those are interesting historical cases, but from another time, and might as well be from another country.

All cases like this would turn on enforcement, and who would enforce Trump's defiance of the courts and risk arrest or summary jugement for contempt of court? They would resign before sending those orders down the chain and no-one would take their place. Not to mention the prime facia case for the impeachment of Trump this would provide.

This is why Trump would never do this, but I guess folks can fantasize..

Two IC officials close to Pence stated privately this month that they are planning on a Pence takeover. Did not state if Pence agrees.— Julian Assange (@JulianAssange) March 14, 2017

It should be noted that both the officials close to Pence and Hillary Clinton spoke of moving towards an 'impeachment' not other action.— Julian Assange (@JulianAssange) March 14, 2017

Judge who froze first travel ban hands Trump a victory
http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/judge-who-froze-first-travel-ban-hands-trump-a-victory/article/2617662
By DANIEL CHAITIN (@DANIELCHAITIN7) • 3/16/17 9:51 PM •Updated: 03/16/17 10:05 PM

Judge James Robart of Washington state, whose ruling in February froze President Trump's first travel ban, decided Thursday that the president's revised travel ban is not subject to the prior injunction enforced against the first one.

This happened after a federal judge in Hawaii, followed by another in Maryland, put the revised travel ban on hold hours before it was set to take effect.

Plaintiffs in the case had argued that tenets of the president's new executive order, specifically that the 90-day suspension of to travel from six majority-Muslim countries and a 120-day freeze on refugees entering the U.S., were nearly identical to that of the first order.

The administration pushed back against that assertion, saying the new order is substantially different and completely lawful.

In his ruling, Robart says "the court agrees with Defendants that the limited scope of the court's prior injunction does not carry over to EO2 (the second executive order)." He continued: "The court cannot conclude that the policy changes in EO2 are minor or that EO2 represents nothing more than a 'renumbering' of policies that the court has already enjoined. Accordingly, the court declines to apply its preliminary injunction concerning EO1 to provisions contained in EO2."

Robart said unlike in the first executive order, the second one did not go into immediate effect, the travel ban did not include nationals from Iraq and the second order "eliminates the indefinite suspension of refugees from Syria that was in EO1 and contains no preference for religious-persecution claims of religious minorities."

He also noted other distinctions, including the second executive order's narrower scope, absence of limitations on asylum seekers and analysis of the conditions in each of the six countries listed in the travel ban.

The legal fight in Washington isn't over, however.

Robart has not yet ruled on a second case against the ban on immigrant visa-holders of the new executive order, in which the plaintiffs had requested a temporary restraining order. This temporary restraining order would not expand the scope of the one put in place by the ruling in Hawaii.

"The most liberal court in America could be heading for a split."

SPLIT IT:
Congress Considers Splitting The 9th Circuit

KEVIN DALEY - 03/16/2017


Judges Sidney Thomas, Carlos Bea, and Alex Kozinski give testimony before a House panel on splitting the 9th Circuit.
Credit: Kevin Daley, TheDCNF



EXCERPTS:
The subcommittee’s chairman, Republican Rep. Darrell Issa, said the court has become too unwieldy to operate efficiently. At 12,000 cases, the court hears twice as many appeals as the next largest circuit court per year. The court also has the largest geographic jurisdiction in the country, running as far north as the Arctic Circle and as far south as Arizona’s Grand Canyon. Fully one-fifth of the country’s population sits in the 9th Circuit. As such, the court’s massive docket generates lengthy turnaround times in decisions and can make access to the courts challenging for average citizens.

... The sprawling 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals was split into
two appeals courts in 1981 over similar concerns.


Democrats on the subcommittee argued that the administrative and logistical concerns Republican lawmakers raised were little more than a thin veneer masking their ideological hostility to the court. (Ed: Naahh!)

Judge Robart has now stayed the proceedings in Washington, pending the resolution of the proceedings in Hawaii "for as long as the Hawaii court's nationwide temporary restraining order remained in place, to "conserve resources" and avoid inconsistent and duplicate rulings".. It is the same thing the court in Hawaii did when Robart was making his original order re. the first EO.
