A Constitutional Right to Muslim Migration

The United States Constitution makes Judge Richard Posner yawn.

”I see absolutely no value to a judge of spending decades, years, months, weeks, day, hours, minutes, or seconds studying the Constitution,” he once wrote.

“Eighteenth-century guys, however smart,” Judge Posner suggested, couldn’t have grasped our high tech world. The Constitution and the Bill of Rights, according to him, “do not speak to today.” He dismissed it as a document based on “what those 18th-century guys were worrying about.”
