The most liberal circuit court in the United States has predictably ruled against the Trump administration’s executive order on immigration.

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals’ ruling fully denied the Trump administration's request to overturn the lower court’s lawless nationwide stay of the executive order’s enforcement.

This the same court that previously ordered the state of Arizona must grant drivers licenses to illegal immigrants and has habitually blocked the deportation of illegal alien offenders.

It is no surprise that the federal judiciary continues to ignore American national sovereignty in its quest to overrule the lawful actions of Congress and the president and impose a progressive agenda on the American people.

This legal battle now likely moves to the U.S. Supreme Court, but the fact that the president’s plenary power over immigration is even being contested in the courts is itself a disgrace.

It is high time for serious judicial reform. Congress can start by using its Article III Sec. II power to strip lower courts of their assumed jurisdiction to grant rights to any foreign national to enter or remain in the United States against the law, except in the case of explicit statutory preemption of the president’s powers.

This, unfortunately, is a necessary action to combat the liberal takeover of America’s court system and reassert America’s sovereignty under the law of nations.

UPDATE: Just minutes after the ruling was announced, President Trump responded on Twitter.
