The courts don’t have a say over national security

That’s the President’s province.  Yet:

“A federal judge barred the Trump administration from refusing asylum to immigrants who cross the southern border illegally.”

This is clearly an unconstitutional power grab by the courts into a matter which concerns national security, and in the visa cases, the Supreme Court has already indicated that the courts really don’t have the power to stop this sort of thing. Trump would be entirely within his rights to pull an Andrew Jackson, and say, “Jon Tigar has made his decision; now let him enforce it!”

Luckily, this won’t survive Supreme Court scrutiny any more than any of the visa-issuance cases did, and I’m beginning to wonder at what point these judges who are acting extra-judicially ought to be getting impeached.
