The past 20 days, in the immigration world, have been a roller coaster.  First, President Trump rolls out his travel ban, albeit temporary, on those who are refugees or travelers from the seven failed states recognized as unable to provide sufficient background checks on their people, from regions dominated by terrorist organizations or regimes:  Somalia, Sudan, Libya, Yemen, Iran, Iraq, and especially Syria.  Second, a Federal district court judge slaps the Trump administration with a ban on the ban, restraining him from any enforcement of his policy on foreign immigration, and de facto forcing Pres. Trump to accept the Obama policy on refugees.  That was itself following demonstrations around the world, attacking Trump’s policies and Trump as a man (even calling his wife a whore), and particularly in America, snarling traffic and shutting down airports where incoming refugees and green card holders were detained.  Third, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upholds the injunction against Trump and his government, making it even more likely that he would be forced into a constitutional crisis, when President Trump would finally act as he has in the business world, defy the decisions by the courts and claim exclusive power to decide who gets-in to the USA.

The battle now goes to the issue of U.S.A. border security.  Following up on the rather generic portions of the Executive Order issued on January 27th on immigration and security, President Trump, through his Secretary of Homeland Security, Gen. John F. Kelly, has released a final draft of the policy priorities in the realm of border and interior enforcement.  While the hysteria concentrated on alleging that Donald Trump hates everyone who doesn’t look like him, the strain he and his leadership are human-straitjacked

Today, or Tuesday, the doors are now open, but only until President’s new order takes effect.  Then, the crazy will beg for more.
