Reasons why Federal District and Appellate Courts Lack Standing to Rule on Trumps EO

Reprinted with permission of author Oren Long;

Here's something I hope you take seriously.   If you like it, perhaps you can post it far and wide and ask readers to forward it to Trump for his perusal.   IF (and it's a big "if") enough people send it to him, sooner or later he will see it.
>
President Trump's Immigration E.O. has been struck down by Federal District and Appellate Courts despite the fact that they lack standing or jurisdiction to hear the case.   Here's why:
>
Article III, Section Two, Paragraph Two, Sentence One of the Constitution states, "In all cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in which a State may be Party, the Supreme Court shall have ORIGINAL (emphasis added) Jurisdiction".  
>
This means that since the States filed suit against the Federal Government, making themselves "Party" to the suit, ONLY the Supreme Court can hear the case, period!   ONLY the Supreme Court has jurisdiction, period!   Federal District Courts and/or Appellate Courts cannot, by Constitutional mandate, hear the case, period!
>
The Founders CLEARLY did not want lower courts ruling on cases that might impact international relations OR cases where States sued the Federal Government, impacting national policy through a hodge-podge of conflicting lower Court rulings.   The Founders clearly believed that such cases should be heard by the Supreme Court -- ONLY!
>
Ergo, under Article III, President Trump is legally and Constitutionally free to ignore the aforementioned lower Court rulings and proceed with his E.O. unless and until the Supreme Court strikes it down.
>
President Trump's legal team should make only one argument before any lower Court hearing the case, "This Court has NO jurisdiction in this matter.   Under Article III, Section Two, Paragraph Two of the Constitution of the United States, ONLY the Supreme Court can hear this case.   Since this case was filed by the State of ________, through that State's Attorney General, the State is, by Constitutional definition, Party to the suit and MUST, therefore, by Constitutional mandate, file directly with the Supreme Court.   That said, the President has instructed me to advise the Court that, regardless of this Court's ruling, he is proceeding with his Immigration Executive Order unless and until the Supreme Court strikes it down."
>
This Constitutional stance, by the President, could go a long way towards bringing the Federal Judiciary back within its Constitutional constraints.

What do you think?   Will you post it far and wide?

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
