One of the reasons the Ninth Circuit Appeals Court cited in their opinion to continue the lower court’s block of Trump’s executive order was that the Federal Government supplied no evidence of terrorists from the listed nations on the order.

A new study flies in the face of that (disclaimer – we are not making the claim the Government provided this evidence to the 9th circuit… only that it does exist).

From CIS.org:

A review of information compiled by a Senate committee in 2016 reveals that 72 individuals from the seven countries covered in President Trump’s vetting executive order have been convicted in terror cases since the 9/11 attacks. These facts stand in stark contrast to the assertions by the Ninth Circuit judges who have blocked the president’s order on the basis that there is no evidence showing a risk to the United States in allowing aliens from these seven terror-associated countries to come in…
Continuing…
The Center has extracted information on 72 individuals named in the Senate report whose country of origin is one of the seven terror-associated countries included in the vetting executive order: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. The Senate researchers were not able to obtain complete information on each convicted terrorist, so it is possible that more of the convicted terrorists are from these countries.

The United States has admitted terrorists from all of the seven dangerous countries:
Somalia: 20

Yemen: 19

Iraq: 19

Syria: 7

Iran: 4

Libya: 2

Sudan: 1

Total: 72

Boom!

The liberal media continues to push the false narrative that these countries present no harm.

They are wrong.
