On Monday night Mark joined Tucker Carlson on Fox News to discuss the President's victory at the Supreme Court on the travel ban:
Steyn said the ongoing events are an example of the "permanent bureaucracy and the courts ganging up to cripple the executive branch."
"What an insane situation we're in," he said, adding that, by law, Trump has the authority to "ban by proclamation" any group he deems dangerous to any aspect of the nation...
"He could ban all Canadians by proclamation," he said.
That's correct. The law 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 nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.

If you like Mark in video, he'll be back with a brand new SteynPost tomorrow. On the other hand, if you prefer Mark in non-video, he'll be back on the radio with the great John Oakley at AM640 Toronto on Wednesday afternoon at 5pm Eastern.
SteynPosts and much of our other content is made possible through the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we are profoundly grateful.
What is the Mark Steyn Club? Well, it's an Audio Book of the Month Club - or, if you prefer, a radio-serial club (a special seasonal edition thereof starts this weekend). The Steyn Club is also a discussion group of lively people around the world on the great questions of our time. It's a video poetry and live music club. We don't (yet) have a clubhouse, but we do have a newsletter and other benefits. And, if you've got some kith or kin who might like the sound of all that and more, for this holiday season only we have a special Christmas Gift Membership that includes a welcome gift of a handsome Steyn hardback or a CD set personally autographed by Mark.
