Minnesotans Versus Trump and Immigration Ban

Toms Ostrom Soap BoxMinnesotans in the News Over Trump Immigration Ban and DNC Politics

by Tom Ostrom

Representative Keith Ellison (D-MN) is in the running to be the Democrat National Committee Chair, despite what some critics describe as his alleged past anti-Semitic statements and association with a radical Islamic group.

Vincent Tolliver, an African-American DNC chair candidate, was expelled for saying Ellison should be disqualified because of his Muslim faith that is associated with anti-Semitic and anti-gay perspectives.

President Trump’s ban on immigrant and visitor travel to the U.S. from seven destabilized terrorist-ridden nations is perfectly legal and supported by the Constitution, congressional legislation, federal statutes, and the actions of previous presidents, including Obama. But Washington State U.S. District Judge James Robart issued a halt (stay) on the ban, and Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson supported it.

Higher court decisions are likely to follow after the liberal Ninth Circuit Court in California has considered the issue. A Boston federal judge sided with the Trump administration.

Trump has been chastised for challenging the “so-called judge” Robart’s decision, saying it was politically motivated, and the judge has no jurisdiction in or knowledge about the issue.

Trump’s critics ignore President Obama’s attempted intimidation of the Supreme Court in his first State of the Union address, and his subsequent statements about Justice Roberts prior to that Court’s consideration of legal issues raised over Obama’s Affordable Care Act.

Judicial and congressional hostility to Trump, and the actions and statements of dissenters and rioters against the administration, are seen by Trump’s supporters as orchestrated attempts to delegitimize and immobilize the president, and even impeach him.
