My non-lawyer understanding of the case is that the President has the right to decide that non-citizens, residing in foreign countries, can be denied entry into the US for security concerns.
In this case, the security concern is that six of the eight countries in question support a pernicious form of ideological driven violence, Islamic Terrorism. The other two were Venezuela and North Korea.
This lead to this being dishonestly called a “Muslim Ban.”
Cue the freak out on the Left.
There are three Tweets I saw in response that I find very troubling when put together.
5-4 rulings featuring Gorsuch in the majority are piling up.

The theft of Merrick Garland’s Supreme Court seat is legitimately the greatest heist in world history.

Put them together and you have this basic thought:
“Trump stole a SCOTUS seat from Obama and gave it to Gorsuch. Gorsuch had ruled in the majority against everything the Left loves in all but one case. It’s time we stop being civil with Gorsuch.”
Given the current political situation and the fact that a SCOTUS Justice can have a career that spans decades (especially a young Justice like Gorsuch) I’m afraid that someone on the radical Left might get the idea to shift the balance of the court by pulling a “Scalise.”
I hate to think like this but I won’t underestimate the craziness of the Left anymore.
For the safety of our nation, Trump needs to get Gorsuch a Secret Service detail ASAP.
