No man nor his desires are above the law. The laws of the Republic - the Constitution and its Amendments, adapted to meet changing times, have sustained the might and the strength of the United States(US) for more than two centuries. Yet, in 2017, laws that have for years protected religious, civil and other freedoms, are now under pressure from a surprising source - a new White House administration, in Washington, DC.
That a political candidate, in the heat of campaigning rhetoric, would vow to ban a particular religion from the US, then attempt to follow through with that thought upon ascending to White House via a series of Executive Orders, must not be allowed to circumvent the rule of law nor the established norms and guaranteed protections of the Constitution.
In other words, if President Donald Trump fears Islam, then that is his personal problem. Therefore, he must not be allowed to crush religious freedoms nor be allowed to use a travel ban to discriminate against practitioners of Islam.
The temporary restraining orders, issued by the courts of the US against the discriminatory travel ban against seven-major Muslim nations, must be honored. Obviously, judges issuing the restraining orders, are viewing evidence presented for and against the ban that they have adjudged to merit a more thorough judicial review because of constitutional questions.
The law remains bigger than Trump and his ideology. Thus, all agencies, agents and facets of the federal government, should abide by the restraining orders of the courts until the full constitutionality of the travel ban could be ruled upon.
