Can / Should Pelosi sue Trump for barring two of her members from visiting Israel and Palestine?
Forget your opinion of Omar and Tlaib. That simply does not matter.

I think she should use the courts as aggressively as possible to find accountability for this unprecedented break with tradition.

Well,... since he didn't ban them I guess the answer is no?

What is the OP talking about?

Well... he's a complete idiot, so I am not sure.

3. I have an idea, lets pretend President Obama told England to BAN

John McCain or that filthy **** Huckabee or ANY popular republican and worse, England did it.

Blood would be running all over the streets in this country

Oh, wait... they (UK) did ban people...

Michael Savage- (Michael Alan Weiner), better known by his professional name Michael Savage, is an American radio host, author, activist, nutritionist, and conservative political commentator. On May 5, 2009, it was announced by then-Home Secretary Jacqui Smith that Savage was on a list of people banned from entering the United Kingdom as he is "considered to be engaging in unacceptable behaviour by seeking to provoke others to serious criminal acts and fostering hatred which might lead to inter-community violence". During a subsequent NPR talk show, Savage said that he has never advocated violence and repeatedly invoked the United States Constitution's First Amendment. After host Neal Conan pointed out that the U.S. Constitution does not apply to the United Kingdom, Savage replied, "No. Thank God I'm an American. But for this lunatic ... to link me up with Nazi skinheads who are killing people in Russia ... to put me in league with Hamas murderers who killed Jews on buses, is astonishing". In The Guardian, Catherine Bennett wrote: "The ban on Savage is so far from being a comprehensible act, so staggeringly capricious and stupid, as to defy evaluation."

“... two of her members from visiting Israel and Palestine?”

Nothing is stopping the two Jew haters from going to Palestine.

There is no "Palestine".

Quote
Palestine (Arabic: فلسطين‎ Filasṭīn), officially the State of Palestine (Arabic: دولة فلسطين‎ Dawlat Filasṭīn), is a de jure sovereign state in Western Asia claiming the West Bank (bordering Israel and Jordan) and Gaza Strip (bordering Israel and Egypt)[3] with East Jerusalem as the designated capital, although its administrative center is currently located in Ramallah.[ii][4][5] The entirety of territory claimed by the State of Palestine has been occupied by Israel since the Six-Day War in 1967.

In law and government, de jure describes practices that are legally recognised, regardless whether the practice exists in reality.

There is no basis for a suit, the decision to bar them is that of the Israeli government, a distinct sovereign that does not answer to us. President Trump can say whatever he wants about it, but ultimately it is not his call, therefore no legally actionable event.

That's a silly question Pete. Stinky is a DUmmy. DUmmys are Anti-Semites. Therefore Stinky is an Anti-Semite.
