President Trump and his cabinet have had no end of grief on every single measure they try to enact. It’s as if people in America don’t expect presidents to actually follow through on their campaign promises.
Such has been the case with the travel ban that the President considered needful for national security. Despite it being within his rights to order such a ban every liberal in the nation was infuriated that Donald Trump signed the order and they did their best to block it. Unfortunately, there were some judges who agreed with them and knocked down the ban.
Now, though, several states have decided to come out in support of the ban.

Twelve state attorneys general and Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant filed the amicus brief which claims the president’s immigration order is lawful and well within his authority. The attorneys general who joined the brief were from Texas, Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Kansas, Louisiana, Montana, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota and West Virginia.
The 36-page amicus brief filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit indicates that states do not have the authority to “restrict or set the terms of aliens’ entry into the United States for public-safety and national-security reasons.” The federal Executive Branch, pursuant to the laws of Congress, has that authority, the brief argues.
