Sonia Sotomayor Delivers Sharp Dissent in Travel Ban Case

But one of her many distinguished decisions was to repeat a difference of a boss himself. Citing some-more than a dozen instances in that Mr. Trump tweeted or released anti-Muslim sentiments, it was his words, not her own, that rang out from a bench.

She continued down a list for minutes, reading one instance after another.

“On Dec. 21, 2016, President-elect Trump was asked either he would ‘rethink’ his prior ‘plans to emanate a Muslim registry or anathema Muslim immigration,’” Justice Sotomayor said. “He replied: ‘You know my plans. All along, I’ve proven to be right.’”

“‘People, a lawyers and a courts can call it whatever they want, though we am job it what we need and what it is, a TRAVEL BAN!’” she read, recounting a president’s 2017 tweet.

“Islam hates us,” she read, citing another example, and combined another: “We’re carrying problems with Muslims entrance into a country.”

The regressive justices, staring unblinkingly ahead, remained stone-faced.

She continued that Mr. Trump had never disavowed any of his statements per Islam, and so had unsuccessful “to scold a reasonable notice of his apparent feeling toward a Islamic faith.”

In another absolute passage, Justice Sotomayor drew parallels between a preference and Korematsu v. United States, a 1944 statute that inspected a apprehension of Japanese-Americans during World War II.
