Fox legal analyst: Only US citizens — not ‘Joe Schmo Mohammed’ — have the right to enter US
Fox Judge Jeanine Pirro joined Fox & Friends on Friday morning as the hosts discussed the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision on Thursday night against reinstating President Donald Trump’s anti-Muslim travel and immigration ban.
Pirro called the push a political move from the start, calling the 9th Circuit Court “the most liberal, left-wing.” She said, “Everybody knew that this was the place to go.” She also suggested that Trump use the “nuclear option,” which is to kill the filibuster in the Senate to approve his Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, “and start doing business.”
“Let me make one thing perfectly clear: If you are not a citizen of the United States of America, you do not have the right to come to the United States, period, end of story. The president has a plenary authority, the power to determine who comes into this country,” Pirro started. “And all this talk about constitutional rights — if you are from Somalia, I got a news flash, you do not have constitutional rights in this country.”
“It’s not about people with green cards,” Pirro suggested. Rather, “It’s about Joe Schmo Muhammad, who doesn’t have any vetting from another country that — where they promised to send in individuals and jihadists to kill us.”
