Congressman Louie Gohmert (TX-01) released the following statement today regarding the Supreme Court’s ruling that allows for full enforcement of President Trump’s travel ban:

“The Supreme Court ruling supporting the President’s travel ban should have been a 'ho-hum, but of course’ ruling. However, with judges and justices becoming ever the legislative and executive branches while wearing black robes, this was an absolutely critical ruling. We are grateful the Supreme Court took it up promptly before lower courts ended up with both blood and a shredded Constitution on their hands."

Congressman Gohmert is the Vice Chairman of the Natural Resources Committee and the Vice Chair of the Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security. Prior to being elected to serve in Congress, he was elected to three terms as District Judge in Smith County, Texas and was appointed by then Texas Governor Rick Perry to complete a term as Chief Justice of the 12th Court of Appeals.
