The Fourth Circuit Invites Manchesters Here

How ironic that the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals would choose the day after a man whose family immigrated from Libya conducted a murderous attack in Manchester, England to block President Trump's effort to prevent such individuals from coming here.

British investigators were dispatched to Libya, hoping to discover the extent to which the suicide bomber, Salman Abedie, had help and/or co-conspirators there. The absence of a functioning Libyan government makes such inquiries both dangerous and problematic. That's one of the reasons President Trump instituted his pause on immigration from Libya and other failed states.

If the President is unable to exercise his constitutional and statutory authority to do that, there will be more Manchesters here. And there will be blood on the hands of jurists who arrogate to themselves decisions about national security they are neither equipped nor entitled to exercise.
