California’s “Nutty” Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals managed to sow the seeds of chaos at the U.S. southern border with a series of indecisive rulings on the Trump Administration’s Remain in Mexico policy. Now, President Donald Trump may be forced to shut down the U.S.-Mexico border to prevent migrants infected with coronavirus from spreading the contagion across the nation.
The left-wing “judges” on the Nutty Ninth have earned a reputation for exceeding their authority and playing politics, consistently ruling against President Trump’s America First policies. After liberals ran to the Democrat-appointed judges, the court promptly set an injunction that — on its surface — would indicate the Migrant Protections Protocols (MPP) or “Remain in Mexico” policy must be lifted, allowing a flood of nearly 60,000 potential criminals and sick migrants enrolled in the program to penetrate the border.
“The MPP has had serious adverse consequences for the individual plaintiffs,” Clinton-appointed Judge William Fletcher reportedly wrote. “The hardship and danger to individuals returned to Mexico under the MPP have been repeatedly confirmed by reliable news reports.”
It’s difficult to fathom, but liberal judges actually factor in fake news media reports when deciding cases about national security.
“If today’s ruling is allowed to stand, these successes will be reversed, which threatens to flood the Nation’s immigration system, present unchecked coronavirus entry risk, deeply damage our positive relationship with the Government of Mexico and other regional partners, and reignite the humanitarian and security crisis at the border,” the White House states on the ruling.
Knowing full well the Trump Administration would, once again, prevail at the U.S. Supreme Court, the panel of judges appears to have hedged its bets by putting the ruling on hold. The Ninth has repeatedly had its biased decisions against the Trump Administration overturned. Republicans are urging the president to close the border over coronavirus outbreak.
“Given the porous nature of our border, and the continued lack of operational control due to the influence of dangerous cartels, it is foreseeable, indeed predictable, that any outbreak in Central America or Mexico could cause a rush to our border,” 11 Republican lawmakers led by Texas Rep. Chip Roy wrote to the president.
As confirmed cases of the fast-spreading virus are confirmed in Mexico-based migrant camps, the president has health emergency options on the table. The political activists pretending to be impartial judges have already been overturned when trying to restrict executive branch powers. Now the president has a clear path to control the border as Democrat judges have been widely recognized as “resist and obstruct” partisans.
“We are thinking about the southern border, ” President Trump said. “We are looking at that very strongly.”
The Remain in Mexico policy was carved out of negotiations with neighboring countries invested in curbing the flow of illegal immigration, human trafficking, and cartel activity. Since taking effect last year, illegal immigration has been dramatically reduced, and border security improved. Despite all these gains, liberal activists continue to put the interests of foreigners over everyday Americans. Fortunately, President Trump has more than enough leverage to close the border should the Nutty Ninth need to be overruled, again.
