Federal Court rules in favor of Trump administration rule limiting legal immigration

Though President Trump has experienced significant setbacks in his legal challenges of the election, he’s garnered some major legal wins in other areas as of late.

On Thursday, a federal court ruled in favor of a Trump administration rule seeking to bar legal immigrants that cannot afford their own health insurance — or prove they will be able to — from entering the United States.

This ruling is separate from the Trump administration’s controversial “public charge rule,” which seeks to reject immigrants that could become a burden on American taxpayers, but is based upon a similar principle.

The favorable ruling comes from a surprising source — The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco — a notoriously liberal court. The San Francisco Chronicle lamented the decision, writing that the public charge rule could block up to 375,000 immigrants from entering the US each year.

The Chronicle, of course, charged the Trump administration xenophobia over the rule, suggesting that migrants that cannot prove that they can support themselves once entering American still have a right to enter the US.

The ruling “makes clear that the Biden administration must move swiftly to rescind all of President Trump’s xenophobic presidential proclamations, including this health care ban,” wrote the Chronicle. “Countless people have been hurt by this ban, and each passing day keeps families needlessly separated.”

The Circut court appears to disagree with the heavily liberal Chronicle, with Judge Daniel Collins writing in the majority opinion that the law “grants the president sweeping authority to decide whether to suspend entry, whose entry to suspend and for how long.”

Collins added that the Trump administration rule shall be allowed to proceed as long as it doesn’t conflict with any federal laws.

Despite roundly condemning the ruling, the Chronicle did admit that “The appeals court said the Trump administration had presented evidence that legal immigrants are only one-third as likely as U.S. citizens to have health insurance, and that uninsured residents cost taxpayers and health care providers more than $35 billion a year.”

Many do not realize, because the Media will not report, President Trump did the miraculous by literally turning the Ninth Circus Court of Appeals into a Conservative-leaning (meaning Constitutional leaning) court by appointing new judges in the last four years. No one ever thought it possible as I live in Kalifornia. So another Trump win for We The People. Though all will be lost unless we fight back hard as they stole clearly the election. This is no joke. NOT business as usual. Either we fight back (in the streets if needed) or we lose our country permanently. It is that serious.

The people do not vote for members of the 9th Court (or any other court). Members of the court are nominated by the president, then either confirmed or rejected by the Senate. Only Congress can remove a federal judge (at ant level) using the impeachment process
However, do not hold your breath for that to happen. In the history of the nation only one federal judge has been removed from the bench, and that was back in the late-1800s.

I think the court was bought or threatened by the Demorats that is why the ruled against Trump. They are as crocked as the Demorates! Something is wrong with some people in this country to put outsiders in our DC. Why do you people want to change the nation to a 3rd world country?
Forgeiners do not belong in our policies, they come here and want to change things to the way the had it back home, why did you come anyways, go back to your own country and change things. Now if we did what Omar did we would be in jail, but she gets away with it!

Do Dummocrats even know the meaning of “ILLEGAL”? It doesn’t seem so! If they are immigrants they are illegal! Now if they go through the process of becoming a legal citizen, that changes everything! I don’t know how long it takes, but many people have done it!!

Takes 5 years from the day the papers are filed, it used to be that during those 5 years you could not be unemployed or become dependent on taxpayers. I did it was no problem ofcourse I took jobs that paid 1.40 an hour but was never unemployed, even served 4 years in the USAF, which later paid for my 4 year of college

The democRAT agenda is to flood America with illegals and replace American citizens with illegals who will vote Democrat. Biden stated he would give citizenship and voting rights to over 20 million illegals already here.

How new is this? My grandfather came to the United States to attend college before WW I. He said you couldn’t get in unless you were in good health, had a job or a sponsor or enough money to support yourself. You couldn’t immigrate if you would be a burden on society. He shared a room – not an apartment, a room in a boarding house – with three other guys. And the government didn’t pay for it. You really were expected to make it on your own then.

In 1955 that was still the law when my father came here from canada. When did the laws change? You needed a sponsor that would guarantee you would not be a burden on the government and if you could not support yourself and your family your sponsor guaranteed the government they would take care of you. Bet those laws are still on the books so why are they not enforced???

If you look at the state of our political system you can’t distinguish between either one. We have a President who has tried to make Americans first and the rest of the world second. But we have 2 political parties that have their hand out waiting for that big score to pad their pockets and a political system built on the philosophy of get as much as you can and ask for more. What is amazing is you run for office and spend close to a million dollars or more doing so, the office pays say $175,000.00 per years and within 2 or 3 years you are a millionaire, how does that happen. All one needs to do is see the movie Dave and Honorable Gentleman, these 2 movies epitomize our political system to the tee. All one has to do is look at the pork in any bill that clears both chambers and see the graph and self-serving items added. The money that goes out of this country to countries that really despise America except the dictator who is being paid to like us or is it just the money. Have you ever thought maybe a large portion comes back as laundered money to those house millionaires? I could go on and on but a true American can see we are on a very slippery slope and I’m not so sure we will recover with what we have today. GOD help us and Bless our President and our Country.

The Democrats have been behind this whole mess, Since The Clinton’s, The Bushes, the Obama’s and now the Biden’s. They have let all these Illegal’s in here and gave them a new house to live in and a new car, food stamp and put them on SSI as some as they can. Just for the VOTES. If It was any American that needed help , they wouldn’t give us any thing or the time of day. The Democrats Pelois, Schumer, DOJ, AOC Biden ‘s all show be put in a cell and throw the key away. For trying to America a communists Country and treating President Trump awful. President Trump has done nothing But, Try to Make America Great for the People. We need you back in the White House for 4 More Years. Let’s Hope these people wake up and put him back in. God Bless President Trump.

Dumpocraps should be deported along with all their ideals to the farthest away 3rd world country from the USA. They seem to want to turn this country into a “hell on wheels” wasteland while they go off and live on a paradise island somewhere, this is what our country will be turning into if we let Joe and the Ho into The White House!!

Before the voting started, some paper, I wish I could remember which one, said the old people were afraid of Trump. That one elderly woman said “Trump, as a man, scares me.” Well, let me tell you, the more I hear about things Biden says he is going to do , the more scared I get, and I am 75 turning 76 tomorrow. That is not as a man, it’s because he doesn’t think for himself. He is letting Obama and Harris and others do his thinking and planning for him. He’s not a man and never was. He’s a weak , tell me what to do and I’ll do it, type and is getting worse. He doesn’t know where his left foot is, let alone his thoughts. I am so afraid for my family that I’m leaving behind than I am for me. My two sons. My 4 Grandkids, my 3 Great Grand kids, what is to become of them? And the elderly are afraid of Trump? They better take another look at what is going to happen after they are dead and gone, without Trump. He is the best President we have ever had. He is for the people and makes our country and the world better for us all. Trump is the best and believe me Biden will go down as the worst and Obama right behind him.

America is doomed! If true American patriots don’t go out on the streets by the millions on January 6th, it is over. The Dems are taking over tomorrow Sunday. Mitch Mcannel is the Republican Pelosi. A cower traitor that switches parties as he sees fit. If Biden/Harris takes the government, there is nothing Americans can do, except civil war to get them out for good. The only problem is that millions of people will die for freedom and the America that we are accustom to have. The sad news is the children will suffer for the rest of their lives. God bless America! God bless president Trump. God bless true American patriots.

I live around a bunch of democrats that never look at anything.
They think people are lying about them because of the news media.
They think it is just like it used to be Republican and Democrats fighting.
Won’t even listen to you.
There are to many like this somehow the news media has to be held accountable for what they are doing.

The news media, whether it be Newspaper, Radio, TV or whatever, should be neutral and report what is “truth” and not made up stuff that just suits one Party.
I’m thinking more & more everyday, that China (not all Russia) is pulling the strings when it comes to what is being reported. If the mainstream News Media (ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC & CNN) reported what was really going on with Joe Biden, more democrats would have changed over and voted for Trump.
