Immigration Restriction Upheld by Ninth Circuit

President Trump’s “public charge” ban ruled permissable.

The Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals has ruled that President Trump’s executive order to protect American taxpayers from “Immigrants Who Will Financially Burden the United States Healthcare System” is legal. An injunction had been placed on the order by a U.S. District Court judge in Oregon in November of 2019.

Judge Daniel Collins penned the majority opinion, stating that President Trump’s proclamation is “well within the President’s authority” under the Immigration and Nationality Act. This act states that the president, “may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president as he seeks to benefit U.S. citizens.
  • For wisdom for federal judges as they rule on cases that impact the nation.
  • For the laws and constitution of the U.S. to be upheld at all levels of the government and judiciary.
