Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by the President

Seems there are misrepresentations of the travel ban and the law behind it.

[U.S. Code, Title 8, Chapter 12, Subchapter II, Part II, § 1182, Paragraph (f)]
Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by the President

Here is what was said:

“You could be a lawyer, or you don’t have to be a lawyer. If you were a good student in high school or a bad student in high school, you can understand this, and it’s really incredible to me that we have a court case that’s going on so long.

As you know in Boston, we won it with a highly respected judge, and a very strong opinion but now we're in an area that, let's just say, they are interpreting things differently than probably a hundred percent of the people in this room.  I'd like to almost know, does anybody in this room disagree when I read this?

I'm gonna read what's in dispute, what's in question.  And you'll see this, it's:

[U.S. Code, Title 8, Chapter 12, Subchapter II, Part II, § 1182, Paragraph (f)]
Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by the President

Okay, now, this isn't just me, this is for Obama, for Ronald Regan, for, the Peresident, and this was, done, very importantly, for security. Something you people know more about than all of us.  It was done for the security of our nation.  The security of our citizens.  So that people come in who aren't going to do us harm.  And that's why it was done.  And it couldn't of been written any more precicely, it's not like "Oh, gee, we wish it were written better". It was written beautifully.

So just listen, here's what it says, this is what they're arguing:
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, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.

Okay, so you can suspend, you can put restrictions, you can do whatever you want. And this is for the security of the country, which, again, you're the chiefs, you're the sheriffs, you understand this.  And, I listened to lawyers on both sides last night and they were talking about things that had just nothing to do with it. I listened to a panel of judges and I'll comment on that but I will not comment on the statements made by, certainly one judge, but I have to be honest, that if these judges wanted to, in my opinion, help the court, in terms of respect for the court, they'd do what they should be doing.

I mean, it's so sad, they should be, you know when you read something so simple, and so beautifully written, so perfectly written, other than the one statement of course, having to do with 'he' or 'she', but when you read something so perfectly written and so clear, to anybody, and then you have lawyers and you watch, I watched last night, in amazement, and I heard things that I couldn't believe, things that really had nothing to do with what I just read, and I don't ever want to call a court biased, so I wont call it biased, and we haven't had a decision yet, but courts seem to be so political, and it would be so great for our justice system if they would be able to read a statement and do what's right.  And that has to do with the security of our country, which is so important."
