I genuinely don't know to what extent- if any- the Immigration and Naturalization Act's prohibition on national origin impacts this. And I think the rational basis test may be a bit more favorable to the Trump administration on that one.
    They are guaranteed to take it, regardless of the outcome. Creating a precedence on this is something they'll want to do.

    Uh, what? Why are you being ambiguous on purpose? What an odd defense.

    Hey guys, I was just being ambiguous, learn to deal with my ambiguity! Did I mention I used to teach logic?!

    I hate to spoil it for you, but if this court rules against Trump, then the Supreme Court will definitely take the case and will definitely rule in Trump's favor. It's just common sense that the President should be able to stop immigration temporarily from a country when he deems it to be dangerous, and it's equally common sense that the courts are not qualified to second guess his decisions.

    Erm. "Common sense" is not a legal argument.

    Might not want to have posted that right after talking about legal "precedence".

    Your mastery of the English language is about as impressive as your understanding of jurisprudence.

    Sorry, precedent.

    At least I know how elections work.

    You are as familiar with case law as you are election law.

    Which is only what you read on motherjones.com

    Thanks to Dirty Harry Reid, we won't have to worry about the 4-4 split. It'll be 5-4 upheld in favor of the Trump Administration.
