Once again, our imperial judiciary is claiming the right to make immigration policy. The Supreme Court subverted President Donald Trump’s authority on immigration earlier this week by preserving a lower court ruling that exempted grandparents and other relatives from Trump’s travel ban . [Supreme Court says grandparents, relatives can enter US despite travel ban, by Ariane de Vogue, CNN, July 19, 2017] The administration did score a win when the Supreme Court reversed another part of the lower court ruling, allowing refugee ban enforcement [Justices allow strict refugee ban but say grandparents OK, by Mark Sherman, AP, July 19, 2017]. But eventually Trump and the GOP Congress must act to reclaim immigration policy from these would-be “kritarchs”—who increasingly act as if they are the only meaningful branch of government.

My answer: impeachment. And reestablish control over the immigration bureaucracy by abolishing the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR).

It is unquestionable the Constitution grants authority over immigration policy to Congress. Article I, Section 8, Clause 4 of the Constitution gives authority over immigration to Congress via legislation. No judge may challenge this authority. To do so is usurpation of the powers of another branch of government. Furthermore, Congress has specifically stated in legislation, specifically Title 8 United States Code, Section 1252, Judicial Review, that judges may not review findings of the Executive Branch in the removability of an alien.

Nevertheless, District Judge Derrick Watson of Hawaii, who previously issued a stay on the Trump travel ban based explicitly on his personal political beliefs, took it upon himself to simply assert that refugees working with a resettlement agency—the notorious “refugee contractors”—should be allowed into the country, and dramatically expanded the definition of family members who should allowed in...

The Supreme Court’s restoration of refugees restriction is in line with the Constitution, but its approval of Watson’s expansion of the “family member” category is judge-made law, essentially allowing all refugees who can create any kind of tenuous connection with someone already here to enter the country. [Supreme Court allows Trump refugee ban but backs broader exemptions for relatives, by Robert Barnes, Washington Post, July 19, 2017]...

Furthermore, such assaults on immigration enforcement are not limited to real judges. The quasi-judges of the Executive Office For Immigration Review (EOIR) are also implementing a stealth amnesty...

The EOIR is designed to fail, as the legal process for deportation continues until the illegal alien wins...

Ultimately, the solution must come from President Trump and Congress. The EOIR must be abolished and replaced with a policy of summary removal. Judges, like Goldsmith and Watson, who claim the right to set our immigration policy must be impeached.
