The Supreme Court issued a decision Tuesday to temporarily uphold President Trump’s immigration moratorium on six mostly-Muslim countries. But it should not be considered a victory, as the courts should never have been involved in this issue in the first place, said Conservative Review Editor-in-chief Mark Levin.

“Pop the champagne bottles, I guess, because the Supreme Court didn’t do any damage,” Levin said, sarcastically. “The fact it’s in the courts is damage enough.”

“[The] radical leftists, mostly appointed by Barack Millhouse Benito Obama, to the federal courts, who are now appointed for life … do not conduct themselves as judges, objective when it comes to the law,” Levin explained.

“But they view themselves as masterminds in black robes. That’s what judicial activists are.”

The president of the United States is granted plenary power to control immigration policy, and judges shouldn’t have a say in the matter, Levin added.
