Dershowitz: SCOTUS Will Uphold Trump's Latest Travel Ban

(Newsmax TV's "Newsmax Now")

The Supreme Court will likely uphold the Trump administration's travel ban because it is aimed not at Muslims, but countries that do not have "adequate vetting processes," Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz told Newsmax TV on Wednesday.

In an interview with "Newsmax Now" host Bill Tucker, the Newsmax contributor and author of "Trumped Up" conceded the ban is not "the most perfect and artfully drawn ban," but noted "that's not the criteria's constitutionality."

"It is not a Muslim ban," he declared. "It is a ban on people coming from countries that don't have adequate vetting processes for assuring that terrorists don't come into the country."

He said the lower court decisions to block the travel ban suggest "politicization rather than [judicial] activism."

"I think we're seeing judges impose their own personal views," he said. "I think they're honorable people, they're honest judges. That's the way they view the Constitution. . . . And they honestly, but in my view, mistakenly come to the conclusion that this discriminates against Muslims."

Weighing in on the NFL controversy over players who refuse to stand during the national anthem, Dershowitz said you cannot make the protest a crime.

"But if the employer on his own, without any threat from the government of tax consequences, were to say that every player must stand, that would be perfectly OK and the players couldn't sue," he said.

"I always put out the shoe on the other foot test and under our Constitution what's good for the kneeling players is good for the Klan," he said. "There's no constitutional difference between a Klansman and a football player kneeling. So be careful what you wish for because what you wish for for the football players will also be applicable to the Ku Klux Klan, and the neo-Nazis, Antifa, and every other terrible group."
