Judge was wrong!

Picture of Judge Robart

The judge that decided to halt President Trumps policy banning admittance to the US from 7 mainly Muslim countries was wrong.

The policy which he ruled illegal was passed by Congress and Congress gave the president “the unreviewable authority to suspend the admission of any class of visitor”. I may be simple-minded but to my way of thinking, if something is voted in by the representatives of the people, in a democracy that means that it becomes the policy.

The only way this should be debated is whether it is constitutional and this would have to be examined by the Supreme Court. If they find that it is unconstitutional then fine, but for a judge to second guess Congress is wrong.

It is all very well for people to be complaining about this policy and I understand why. I bet the people of France wish that their Government had taken strong actions to protect them, perhaps their security situation would be better than it is at the moment. I personally would welcome strong actions to protect Britain if the Government felt that it was necessary. As long as there are safeguards in place to ensure that the Government is not acting as a dictator.
