Free trade eliminates immigration issues. As it stands now, however, I don't see a problem with asking questions and turning people away. If you want to be an American citizen, you should have some base level of objective morality and a desire to be free among a free people.

Had Trump ignored the ruling of the Seattle District judge, there would no doubt be calls for impeachment for lawlessness (Rep. Waters didn't read the memo to "wait", lol).

So the question is what to do with a District Judge who ignores the precedent of a higher court? Isn't that judge equally lawless as the hypothetical TRO-ignoring Trump?

Nope. Impossible. I've been told that terrorists never enter the U.S. from anywhere.

Well, in the recent past, its mostly been via their mother's womb. From what I see on TV, that's beyond reach of any statute.

From my extensive reading of Tom Clancy novels I have gleaned that we would be unwise to assume that because a foreign terrorist hasn't successfully pulled off an attack recently, they are not here.

As you and I both know, there is no more compelling evidence in the court of law than a Clancy reference.

Granted, Cardinal of the Kremlin is about as exciting as the Restatement of Torts, 2d, so they are almost interchangeable.

I NEVER thought I would see the words, "Restatement of Torts, 2d," on this forum. Ever.

Also, those words have the same effect on me as does the term "tax law" . . . I'm kind of drowsy from even typing them! :)

As much as the libs are crying about this, just think what this conversation would have been had the election gone the other way?

As I understand it the state of Washington attorney general filed the lawsuit against Trump's executive order on immigration. I am wondering what the rationale was for the Washington AG to file this suit ?

I think I posted upthread a link to the briefs.

Briefly (pardon the pun), the Washington (and Minnesota) AG argues that caught up in the implementation of the "suspension" were people employed by various Washington institutions who had a vested interest in being allowed into the country, and the inability of those people to enter the country was harming not only those people who held the vested interest, but corporate/educational entities who were residents of Washington. Several big name tech companies have joined the litigation expressing the same sentiment.
