    Is it really necessary to wait for the courts?
    Even if it is obvious, why would it be unconstitutional for the president to sign it? Where in the constitution is that claim based?

    I think that The Constitution is pretty clear about what is and is not legal for the federal government to do. I don't have to wait for any court to rule on to make my decision.

    Do remember that federal judges are appointed by politicians and they probably share many of their political ideologies which can carry over to their judicial decisions.

    Their oath of office, to uphold The Constitution of the United States of America.
    It reads something like that. They swear on it in the presence of a judge, do you think it is just a ceremonial act?

    We are a constitutional republic, not a democracy. That is, our representatives make decisions for us, that includes the appointment of supreme court justices who interpret the constitution for us. The mob doesn't get decide.

    And Clinton probably believed that the ban was constitutional.

    But they do get to decide.

    The mob votes in representatives, the same people that reflect their general values and beliefs. The fact is we have democratic elections which is just as bad as a pure democracy itself.

    I'd love to hear his legal reasoning for that belief and he owes everyone a detailed explanation, especially if he is going to restrict something.

    The point is that YOU don't get to decide what the constitution means. Only judges do. No matter how wrong you think they are.

    he's not required to so why would he?

    I think it's treated as ceremonial now even though it does have a legal responsibility tied to it.
