Law Takes a Holiday
Law Takes a Holiday. In the 1934 romantic movie “Death Takes a Holiday,” death assumes human form for three days, and the world turns chaotic. The same thing happens when the law goes on a vacation. Citizens quickly lose faith in the legal system. Anarchy follows — ensuring that there can be neither prosperity nor security.
Misdemeanors then spiraled into felonies as lawbreakers become emboldened. A federal law states that the president can by proclamation “Suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”
In the logic of his 43-page ruling, U.S. District Court Judge Derrick Watson seemed to strike down the travel ban based on his own subjective opinion of a president’s supposedly incorrect attitudes and past statements. They have done so with impunity, believing that illegal immigration is a winning political issue given changing demography.
