And what exactly makes Nikki Haley qualified to be UN Ambassador?

It makes her not governor of South Carolina for a start. The current Lieutenant Governor is a big Trump supporter. Haley is not. He kicked her upstairs to a job no one gives a fuck about. Would be interesting to know if Trump plans on withdrawing us from the UN after he takes office.

You have no idea what the hell you're talking about.

8 USC 1182(f)

“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”

Finally - this is all academic since Trump can't pass any of those laws and if he did the supreme court - no matter how stacked - WILL throw it out since it would be unconstitutional. The constitution clearly states that immigration laws cannot violate any other constitutional right.

Given that that's exactly the law we had prior to 1965's Hart-Celler act, it's certainly not unconstitutional! And foreigners not resident in the US don't have constitutional rights. For immigration, the law can discriminate any damn way we want it to.

No, I don't need to petition to send the statue back to France. The statue was built in 1886. The plaque was presented by friends of Emma Lazarus in 1903. They have nothing to do with each other.

And since when do we legislate policy by hanging inspirational plaques on statues, anyway? What part of the constitution does that fall under?
