The far-left U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit said Monday that President Donald Trump’s March 9 executive immigration order on refugees is unconstitutionally vague.
The three-judge decision declared that President Trump must justify his policies in court by citing agency recommendations and that he cannot unilaterally curb the annual inflow of refugees from 100,000 to 50,000 even though prior presidents have raised and lowered the annual inflow of refugees without interference from the judges.

Well, the funny thing is this:
The EO, and the "temporary" ban, was supposed to last for, what 120 days? And it was supposed to "keep America safe," right?
How many attacks have we had by people from the countries on the list during that time?
