Judge Jeanine Pirro joined Bill O'Reilly on Thursday night to discuss the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals' decision on President Trump's travel ban. She argued that the case would be dismissed if it went to the Supreme Court because it surpasses the state's legal standing.

"The interest of the plaintiff, the state of Washington, is not primary. In fact the state of Washington doesn't have an interest," Pirro said.

"It's some students from another country in the state of Washington. That does not tip the scales," she said, referring to the scales of justice that weigh America's security and the interest of the plaintiff.

After O'Reilly predicted that the Supreme Court would throw out the case due to lack of standing, Pirro went on to explain her position in further detail.

"You're gonna tell me Bill, that a citizen of another country, who we don't even know, whose country won't even tell us who that person is, has primacy over the United States citizen, and that the President of the United States has to tell a federal judge why, under Section 8 of Article 2, Article 1, of the Constitution of the United States, that your last guest couldn't cite, has the primacy and gives the President the power?" Pirro said.

"That's hogwash," she said. "The Supreme Court will give Trump the win on this."
