The Executive Order is not a Mount Sinai type pronouncement. It will be adjusted. It's a start. There are clearly implementation issues. Trump, however, is to be commended for taking on an issue neither party has been willing to address, namely, the national security and public safety dangers of an immigration policy the center of gravity of which is borderless world.

Patterico has lost his mind over DJT.

Red State should be embarrassed to publish anything that starts "I am not an immigration lawyer and do not claim any expertise in this area, but I’m capable of reading a statute and a legal argument, and I thought a post that analyzed the arguments of Bier and McCarthy might be useful to people interested in the topic."

He then starts many sections, after quoting legal text, "This seems to say..." Just [redacted] brilliant, Red State: Bring in Patterico Costanza to just wing it in an area in which he has no expertise.

I S'dOB when I got to "Patterico is skeptical." A couple of Bloody Marys with my frittata for brunch shortens my attention span. Well, that and my patience with TDS is running out and he's only been in office, what, eight days? Maybe I'll be better after my nap.

Greetings from the American Bar at rse's Stafford. No drinkies for me. Have to go to work in about three hours. The gizmo made it in one piece, but it was obvious that security pulled it out of its case and played with it. Speaking of security, they wanted to look through my rucksack when the driver bit kit set off the X-ray screen like a box of 9mm ammo. :)

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I remain amazed at the idea that this EO wasn't "vetted", that it's unconstitutional, and the rest of the claptrap criticism from the press and supposed experts. Trump has had constitutional experts working on these EO's since right after the election. I saw the attorneys in the group entering the Trump Tower almost daily.

Why should I pay attention to Patterico? He's gone full DJT-derangement crazy.

William Jacobson of Legal Insurrection has an excellent discussion about how the media and the democrats are lying about the entire thing.

Here is the link:

http://legalinsurrection.com/2017/01/most-claims-about-trumps-visa-executive-order-are-false-or-misleading/

This is a temporary ban. (90 days).

The president is well within his rights to do it.

The ban applies to all residents of the countries which were named in the LAW that OBAMA signed last year. The countries, again, were chosen by OBAMA's Department of Homeland Security.

The spectacle of people like Chuck Schumer CRYING over this is flat-out ridiculous. Anyone who thinks this isn't a long-overdue way to screen people is simply a victim of the news media.

I am disgusted with people like McCain who are using this as some sort of publicity for their efforts to prop up the interests which fund him.

What we see here is that the Left will use ANY opportunity, including trashing a law that their own former president signed himself, in order to create negative headlines for Trump.

And I don't want to hear the Chuck Todd-approved "we should have given people a week's warning." That gives terrorists a week to get into the country and escape the crackdown.

Pffft.

MY hope is that the coordination of these demonstrations at major airports gives DHS a reason to investigate who is doing it and arrest said instigators with charges of some sort. Michael Moore was on Twitter last night urging his followers to go to airports. Seems like a lot of bad apples have exposed themselves with this. I hope Soros is one who is caught in the net.

buccaneer morgan

And that is why he's the fmr foreign minister.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

buccaneeer,

He's a close ally of former President Vicente Fox, who also has been shooting his mouth off on TV.

Fox understands US mentality (and probably Trump as well) since he was an officer in Coca-Cola International for several years.

If I understand how you have to give respect to the Mexican government (as Trump has done) then tell me why these former government officials are suddenly being big loud mouths and making threats on TV.

Maybe this is kabuki theater staged to get us to go after the cartels while they have plausible deniability.

That's only a theory. I don't really know, but their actions seem downright odd.

John McLame has run his cake hole too.

windansea

The White Mexicans that have always run the country are in a panic, remittances from here to there are their largest cash source (official) and cartel drug money dwarfs that.

Nafta has also enabled them with an ever growing trade deficit.

Trump threatens all three so of course they are in a panic.

The NYT today has eight op-ed pieces and a long, main editorial opposing Trump. There are, perhaps, only 12-14 articles in the Review all told--and one of the articles today is written by a transgender person....this is a non-stop assault. I've never seen anything like this before. Obama restricted immigration from Syria for six months and the mass media barely covered it.

Jack is Back!

MM,

Fox is one of the 61 families that own and run Mexico. They use the US to get rid of the people they can't educate or find work for. Keeps them off the Mexican dole and brings back remittances. Trump wants to blow that operation up.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Understandably they are in a panic, but they really need to work on their negotiating skills.

Recent Mexican history plays like an Oliver stone film on acid. In 1990 the candidate of integrity was assassinated by the cartel, so did the archbishop of Mexico city, the runner up becomes president, this is a prelude to NAFTA, Mexico devalues prompting a shock akin to 1923 Germany a home grown insurgency arises.

the generallyistic deplorable rich

just warming up for the second act.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Jack,

Yep. Make Mexico Great Again!

The horror, the horror!

Well, I voted for someone to go after things with a wrecking ball, so I am ok with Mexico getting in on the action.

Had a guy who came up here on a legal visa working for my son. Nice guy, hard worker. Used to work on my garden on his days off for extra money, because his son needed heart surgery and he had to pay in advance. Sadly, the boy died.

I always felt bad for the people up here working, as they really missed their families.

I don't know the answer, but something has to be done about all of this (especially the cartels) or BOTH countries are going to be in bad shape.

Large-scale lefty outrage requires personnel, passion, and purse. Soros, Brock, Steyer, et al., can use their money to rent bodies, but because it's not organic, it's hard to sustain. Trump's flood-the-zone approach will lead to Peak Outrage very soon. Reacting to each incident by dialing it up to '11' wastes their limited emotional stability. Trump understands this, as do Bannon and Conway.

Trudeau, in a tweet, said Canada would welcome those fleeing “persecution, terror and war. Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith.”

I remember when it was easy for local authorities elsewhere in the US to buy a one-way ticket and send an undesirable to California. It sounds like Trudeau is asking for similar action. The good news is the tourtière is safe.

I’m away from my computer now so long posts are impractical. But I was able to get past the paywall of the NYT and read the entire piece by Bier. I’m less impressed by what he wrote than I am by the attempts of Patrick to fend off McCarthys rebuttal.

Basically Bier’s entire piece relies on a straw an, which he then attempts to knockdown. In his final paragraph he writes “If Mr. Trump [note the unwillingness to refer to him as “President”] can legally ban an entire region of the world…”

I can’t get beyond that because the EO does no such thing.

Further his piece is devoid of any support for HIS claim that the 1996 Amendment, which I’ve posited as completely undermining the basis for his claim the EO is illegal, had some unexpressed and hidden desire on the part of Congress that the “wanted the discrimination ban to hold some force.” Those are his words and he provides no cite, quote, or link that substantiates his characterization.

In fact, the 1996 amendment was passed by a GOP confess in response to a DC Cir court decision invalidating an INS reg that required Vietnamese living in Hon Kong to return to Vietnam in order to apply to immigrate, but allowed other nationalities living in Hong Kong to apply from Hong Kong. It did so on the basis that the reg treated Vietnamese in Hong Kong different from every other nationality living in Hong Kong, in violation of 1152(a)(1).

So in 1996 Congress amended 1152(a)(1), but adding the section saying the no discrimination provision does not apply to Sec of State decisions about how it carries out the application process.

No fair reading of the EO can call it a “ban”. It’s a suspension of the old procedures while new procedures are put in place.

It’s temporary and it does not ban a “whole region” of the world. Several countries that are majority Muslim and are contiguous neighbors of the 7 suspect countries do not fall under the EO.

Bier is a poseur who doesn’t understand what he’s writing about but his thesis fit the editorial POV of the NYT editorial staff.
