President Trump‘s executive order temporarily halting immigration is on solid legal ground.
Fox News Channel’s Judge Jeanine Pirro said that the temporary restraining order a federal judge placed on Trump’s executive order on immigration must be reversed.

“This halt needs to be reversed, it will be reversed,” she said, “It is eminently constitutional and will be upheld on both legal precedent and national security grounds.”
After Washington state Attorney General Robert Ferguson sued the Trump administration over its executive order, U.S. District Judge James Robart issued a temporary order restraining the administration from implementing the order.
Pirro said that the temporary travel ban is “imminently constitutional … by precedent and national security grounds.”
She began with the premise that “no one has the right to enter the United States unless he or she is a citizen of the United States.”
Pirro observed that the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 gives presidents the authority to halt immigration from any country for national security reasons, and it has been used recently by both former Presidents Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama.
Both the Constitution and statutory law provides presidents the power to protect U.S. citizens.
“So, this Judge Robarts from Seattle issues an emergency temporary restraining order on the grounds that the states os Washington and Minnesota will suffer irreparable harm,” Pirro said. “Yet there is no explanation what harm they will suffer.”
She compared Robarts’ order to a similar one that a Boston federal judge issued for individuals who had already entered the country, but declined to extend the stay to others, “saying that the president did have the authority to apply extra vetting measures to travelers coming into the country from those specific countries.”
Pirro observed that there was some chaos last week when the president’s order was first implemented, “but the only chaos was created by the protesters.”
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, sitting in San Francisco, has since upheld Robards’ temporary restraining order.
