What does Katrina Pierson have to do with 4th Circuit’s ruling on travel ban? Sessions vows to find out

President Trump’s temporary travel ban suffered another setback on Thursday when the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in a 10-3 decision to keep the block in part because they believe it “likely violates the Establishment Clause” of the Constitution.

“Congress granted the president broad power to deny entry to aliens, but that power is not absolute,” the majority wrote. “It cannot go unchecked when, as here, the president wields it through executive edict that stands to cause irreparable harm to individuals across this nation.”

If you think that’s off the rails, you won’t believe how far the court’s twisted “logic” actually goes.

That’s right, comments by Trump and even campaign staffer Katrina Pierson were used as an excuse to hamstring the president’s ability to protect America by limiting immigration from unstable terrorist hot spots.

But the craziness doesn’t stop there…

So, when Trump surrogates went on news shows to defend America’s right to limit immigration or defend itself from Islamic extremism, little did they know that nut job judges would use their statements in an actual court decision.

Does this strike anyone as … odd?

For his part, Attorney General Jeff Sessions intends to take this one all the way to the Supreme Court and reiterated his believe that the order is “well within [Trump’s] lawful authority” to keep America safe.

“The Department of Justice strongly disagrees with the decision of the divided court, which blocks the president’s efforts to strengthen this country’s national security,” Sessions said in a statement. “This Department of Justice will continue to vigorously defend the power and duty of the executive branch to protect the people of this country from danger, and will seek review of this case in the U.S. Supreme Court.”
