Representative Bill Johnson (R-Marietta) released the following statement after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the administration in Trump v. Hawaii:

The Supreme Court’s ruling today reinforced what I have said all along: The President of the United States does indeed have the final say when it comes to our immigration policy – as the Constitution provides for, and as Congress has directed.  It’s a win for our Constitution, the rule of law, and America’s national security. The only part of today’s decision that disappoints me is the fact that it wasn’t a unanimous decision, because to me, it is so plainly laid out in law.

The security and safety of the American people must be the top priority of the Commander-in-Chief. As a veteran of the United States Air Force for nearly 27 years, I firmly believe you have to label those who would do harm to Americans as our enemies…and treat them as such.

Today’s decision is a win for President Trump.  But,  much more importantly, it sets the proper precedent for future presidents who will certainly be faced with similar dilemmas in the future.
