Representative Bill Johnson (R-Marietta) released the following statement after the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth District refused to reinstate President Trump’s temporary pause on immigration from seven countries:

I am disappointed, but not surprised by this ruling. This is the kind of judicial activism that the Ninth Circuit is infamous for – and Americans are tired of. I am confident that in the end, the United States Supreme Court will rule that, indeed, the President of the United States has the final say when it comes to our immigration policy, as the Constitution provides for, and as the Congress has directed.
