I'm very glad that my state is supporting the principle that the President's travel restrictions are completely lawful and constitutional. I heard Paxton interviewed on Fox News this morning, and he stated that he doesn't even see anything wrong with Trump's original EO.

Another thing that I'd like to address is the state of Washington's notion that the state has and will suffer "harm" from Trump's policy. Well, WA is only one state, and what if other states, TX being one, actually believe that Trump's immigration order WILL REDOUND TO THE BENEFIT of their citizens? Why does WA get to put a stop to Trump's foreign policy, while another state, such as TX, have no say in the matter?

It seems to me that ANY foreign policy decision will have disparate impact on the various states. Why should any one state get to whine about it and overrule a President's foreign policy decisions?

All this hubbub over a 90 day TEMPORARY travel ban of people who aren’t even American citizens. Leftists are pathetic people.
