Trump Slams Courts By Reading Federal Law on Illegal Aliens

Speaking to a conference crowd of local law enforcement officers and leaders in Washington Wednesday, President Trump slammed the courts for what he perceives as lawyering of straight forward immigration law the White House is using to justify his recent travel ban.

Standing at the lectern, Trump read aloud title eight, chapter 12 of U.S. Code which states: "Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants, or impose on entry of aliens any restrictions may deem to be appropriate."

"This isn't just me, this is for Obama, for Ronald Reagan, for the president," Trump said. "It was done for the security of our nation, the security of our citizens." 

The President said he listened to oral arguments surrounding legal challenges to his executive order Tuesday evening in the 9th District Court of Appeals. A ruling from three federal judges who listened to arguments and heavily challenged attorneys on both side of the case is expected Wednesday or Thursday.

"When you read something so perfectly written, it's so clear to anybody," Trump said. "Courts seem to be so political and it would be so great for our court system to read a statement and do what's right." 

"Right now, we are at risk because of what happened," Trump continued. "We're doing our job."
