  1. It’s my understanding (correct me if I’m wrong) that entry to a country by non-citizens is not an enforceable right. So Assistant US Attorney David Jones would be correct insisting that consular decisions are not subject to litigation and to ask the court to uphold the ban by default – not on the merits (that would be self-contradictory) but because of lack of jurisdiction.
    The fact that the Bush administration abused their executive power to such a degree doesn’t mean there’s now no executive, non-litigable power left at all.

    That said, I fully agree the ban is stupid and should be lifted. IOW, I do hope Obama/Clinton are not actually upholding the ban, but at this time merely asserting their right to do so.

    It’s rather bizarre the British Home Office is now following in Bush’s footsteps by banning people for their objectionable views: http://www.alternet.org/mediaculture/139826/right-wing_shock_jock_michael_savage_banned_from_the_uk_for_extremist_views
