Travel ban revisions expected: Darcy cartoon
The Pledge of Allegiance will be rewritten to include a pledge not to watch "Saturday Night Live" and not shop at stores that don't sell Trump brands. CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Friday, on Air Force One, President Trump told reporters a new Executive Order, relating to the travel ban from 7 predominantly Muslim countries, could be issued as earlier as Monday. It would be wise for the administration to rework the original order to pass legal muster, if that's possible. Four Federal Judges blocked the original order from being enforced, all on the same grounds.   Two of those Judges were appointed by Republican presidents.   The odds do not look good for the Trump administration winning future legal fights with the order remaining in its current form.  At least one objection raised by all the judges should be an easy fix.   The Trump administration needs to draft an order that explicitly excludes green card holders, permanent residents and those who already have visas after having gone through extensive vetting.    A bigger judicial objection to overcome is the Trump team's claim that refugees and immigrants from the seven countries present an immediate security danger to the US.    Department of Justice lawyers were unable to make a sound case for that to the judges.    The 9/11 attackers came from Saudi Arabia.   Terrorists in recent European attacks came from France, Belgium and Germany.    Recent domestic attacks in the US were carried out by ISIS inspired lone wolfs who were American citizens.    The Pulse Nightclub shooter was born in New York City. Even before the travel ban order was issued, it takes an average of two years for someone coming from the 7 countries listed to be fully vetted.   Many have been approved after that time, but many have also been rejected. It's been argued that the Trump travel ban, as written,  makes the U.S. less secure, not more secure.   It hands the terrorists a powerful propaganda tool.  It makes it harder for moderate Muslims to help US forces.  It increases the pressures on good US friends in the region like Jordan.   It increases the targets on their backs and the backs of all US soldiers and citizens.  There have been two good outcomes of the court rulings.  They show the "checks and balances" the founding fathers wrote into the U.S. Constitution are in fact working.   It shows the Judicial Branch is in fact separate and equal to the Executive Branch, and not just some twig. The other good outcome of the rulings, is that if the EO is revised, this time the Director of Homeland Security, the Secretary of State,DOJ, Congressional leaders  and other pertinent individuals who were left out of the loop on the original EO, will now be fully apprised. It's being reported that the new extreme vetting measures imposed by Homeland Security may included requesting the social media accounts/addresses of applicants. Maybe not a bad idea.   US employers already have been known to vet the social media accounts of job applicants.    Male green card and visa applicants would be well advised to wear extra long red ties and slick their hair back like Don Jr. and Eric Trump.  Female applicants should wear Ivanka Trump apparel or at least say their "American Dream" would be to buy Ivanka apparel.       The Pledge of Allegiance will soon be rewritten to include a pledge not to watch "Saturday Night Live" and not shop at stores that don't sell Trump brands.
