QOTD: "Three intelligence sources told The Daily Beast that the ban on carry-on electronics aboard U.S.-bound flights from 10 airports in North Africa and the Middle East was the result of information seized during a U.S. raid on Al Qaeda in Yemen in January. The United Kingdom joined the U.S. ban Tuesday.

Information from the raid shows al Qaeda's successful development of compact, battery bombs that fit inside laptops or other devices believed to be strong enough to bring down an aircraft, the sources said. The battery bombs would need to be manually triggered, a source explained, which is why the electronics ban is only for the aircraft cabin not checked luggage." --Jana Winter and Clive Irving

RE: Gorsuch more likely to oppose travel ban than Garland

Nonsense. Gorsuch's concurrence in Gutierrez-Brizuela is such a powerful statement illustrating our current perverted administrative state that I'm shocked that it hasn't had a higher profile. I'm angry that I hadn't even heard of it before now.

With relevance to the immigration EO, the two examples provided by Shapiro show a consideration of the applicable laws and their precedence in relation to each other. Then, without pontificating on the issue itself, makes a ruling in accordance with that law. In comparison, based on the answers to his "favorite cases" questionnaire, Garland appears to view himself as the "Champion of the Underdog" and has used his considerable abilities to advance the issue rather than simply ruling on (or dissenting to) the letter of the law.

I do not know what Garland's opinion is with regard to middle-eastern immigrants. I feel confident that Shapiro doesn't, either. What I do know is that there is no ambiguity in the relevant Code used as the basis for either EO. Given Gorsuch's attitude of "this is the law, if you don't like it, change it," I have much more confidence in his upholding the Order than a political windsock.
