Texas becomes the first state to back Trump's immigration ban
Business Insider ^ | 02/15/2017 | Andrew Chung

President Donald Trump acted well within his authority in issuing his executive order on immigration, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton told a federal appeals court on Wednesday.

Paxton, a Republican, attached a brief in asking the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in California for permission to argue in support of Trump's temporary ban on travelers from seven predominantly Muslim countries.

The 9th will almost certainly rule against Trump, but the DOJ can analyze the ruling in order to craft the next EO.

Houston news tonight was lecturing us on all the positive things that illegals contribute to the city and economy. Also indicated that 41% of the population in Houston is now Hispanic. Sometimes it seems like it’s at least 91% and none of them speak English.

Haven’t seen anything that said Dumas for a long while. Used to travel with the grain industry years ago and know Dumas, Capps Switch, Etter, Gruver area well!

A guy walks into a Muslim book store.
Muslim book store manager: Can I help you, sir?
Customer: Can you show me that book that explains Trump’s policy on Muslim immigration?
Manager: KMA, GTFO, and stay out!
Customer: That’s the one, do you have it in paperback?

He used to attend our Allen Area Tea Party meetings years ago, before he was Texas AG.

That would be San Antonio.

Honestly, I've never met nicer people than in Houston (lived there about a year and a half.)

There are checks and balances on judicial review, too. Impeachment might be one way, restricting the scope of cases they can hear is another.

What ban?

There was only a temporary stay for 7 countries that is not happening.

Never was a ban and there should be a complete ban of ALL immigration until we get our problems sorted out.

But that will never happen because in the land of Oz we just keep saying our Oh Nos.

Ban, temporary restriction, halt, stop, interruption, whatever...

Thank God for Texas! We're spending what - $1B / year of OUR state tax dollars to protect the border for the rest of the nation...

I just watched the single greatest press conference I've seen in 55 years! Trump just exploded a couple million elitist heads! They DESPISE him and I love seeing someone, finally, give it back to them with such effectiveness and humor. Their true colors show boldly in these venues and even some liberals are waking up.

I have been a bookkeeper/accounting clerk since I was 17 & I am now 77.

IF I had to have 86% of my work ‘corrected’ or ‘reversed’, I would not have a job. I have 2 clients that I have worked for 47+ years & 44+ years respectively. I was a self employed bookkeeper for small businesses from 1980 to 2004, when I semi-retired.

The 9th CIRCUS Court needs to be re-staffed with people who have actually READ the Constitution.
