Sassy Liberty AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

Thirteen states have joined together and filed a 36-page amicus brief in support of President Donald Trump’s revised executive order on nationals entering the United States from the six countries previously identified as “countries of concern” under the Obama administration.

Among those included in the filing were twelve state attorney generals from Texas, Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Kansas, Louisiana, Montana, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, West Virginia and Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant.  The brief claims the president’s immigration order to be lawful and well within the scope of his authority.

The 36-page amicus brief was filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit.  The brief very clearly delineates that states are not granted nor do they in any way possess the authority to “restrict or set the terms of aliens’ entry into the United States for public-safety and national-security reasons.” The brief goes on to explain and enumerate the powers possessed by the federal Executive Branch in regards to immigration, refugees, and illegal aliens pursuant to the laws this nation professes to be governed by.

The brief states –

Congress delegated to the Executive Branch significant authority to prohibit alien’s entry into the country, and the challenged Executive Order is a lawful exercise of that authority.

Just last month, a three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed a ruling that blocked the original order from Seattle-based Judge Robart.

The brief very specifically asks the court to “grant defendants’ motion for a stay pending appeal and ultimately reverse the district court’s order enjoining the Executive Order.

According to a statement made by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton

Rather than leaving national security in limbo while litigation dragged on, President Trump issued a revised immigration order that addresses the 9th Circuit’s concerns and is a vital step in securing our borders.It is imperative we find a way to better screen refugee applicants to maintain national security. The president is fulfilling his solemn duty to protect Texans and all Americans.”

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey states –

National security falls squarely within the responsibility of the federal government. Our Constitution does not give states that authority, and therefore the safety of all West Virginians relies upon a strong federal government that enforces admissions in a fair and just manner — this executive order does just that.”

The amicus brief cites 2 cases as its basis of proof for the premise that excluding aliens is a core federal power.

The exclusion of aliens is also a core federal prerogative: a power ‘inherent in sovereignty, necessary for maintaining normal international relations and defending the country against foreign encroachments and dangers — a power to be exercised exclusively by the political branches of government.'”

The compelling argument is also made that this executive order is not a “pretext to religious discrimination.”  It is based in reality on legitimate national security concerns, classifying people by nationality, not religion.  It also points to the suspiciously obvious and overlooked point that the six countries in the order were identified by Congress and the Obama administration as “countries of concern.”

From the brief –

Before the current presidential Administration took office, multiple federal officials — including the FBI Director, the former Assistant Director of the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division, and the former Director of National Intelligence — expressed concerns with deficiencies in the country’s ability to vet the entry of aliens.”

The brief even goes so far as to let the court know that it is their belief (and mine) that the court should not in any way rely on the legal precedence set by Washington v. Trump as it was “wrongly decided” by the 9th Circuit panel.

From the brief –

The Executive Order does not violate due process because nonresident aliens abroad have no liberty interest in seeking admission into the country; therefore, no constitutional claims accrue from a suspension of those aliens’ ability to enter.”

God Bless.
