Just 24,000? Pleeeeeeeeeeeeease?

Trump reeeeeeeeeeeally wants to keep out some Mooslims. He gets to do that! He’s the top dude and he gets to!! No stinking lawyers should be able to stop him – they couldn’t build an ugly tower in Manhattan if they tried for a century.

So the Justice Department is pushing it.

The Trump administration is returning to the Supreme Court in an effort to overturn lower court rulings crimping the application of President Donald Trump’s travel ban executive order.

Justice Department lawyers asked the high court Monday to allow authorities to keep up a block on many refugees covered by Trump’s ban.

However, the administration threw in the towel for now on efforts to insist that grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins of U.S. citizens be covered by the ban despite the Supreme Court ordering an exemption for close family members.

A federal judge in Hawaii ruled against the federal government on both issues in July. Last week, a 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals panel declined to disturb that ruling.

They are so mean. What’s it to them if Trump wants to keep out some Mooslims just because he doesn’t like them? Presidents get to do that. It’s in the Constitution, somewhere.

At issue are about 24,000 refugees who have been assigned to U.S. refugee resettlement agencies but not yet given final approval to depart for the U.S.

See? See? It’s just 24 thousand. Peanuts. A blip. Sure, Trump has no reason at all to think they’re a threat, but so what? It sends a message! It sends a message that Mooslims are all a threat and that even keeping out a random 24 thousand of them is well worth doing, out of sheer spite if nothing else.
