Trump’s immigration ban is discriminatory, damaging policy that Congress explicitly rejected in 1965: The parallels are striking

“President Trump plans to release a revision of his immigration executive order on Muslim-majority countries next week. If the new order bans new immigrants from certain countries again, it is certain to land back in court. Last time this happened, his lawyers defended him by asserting that courts have no role in ‘second-guessing a formal national-security judgment made by the President.’ But by not second-guessing Trump, courts will instead have to second-guess the security judgment of Congress, which believed nationality-based discrimination would harm U.S. security and so banned it.” (03/01/17)
