WASHINGTON—Yesterday the DC Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a district court’s dismissal of a lawsuit brought by the family of the so-called “ISIS bride,” Hoda Muthana, who joined the terrorist group in Syria, then sought to return to America where she was born.

With the disgraceful spectacle of the Kavanaugh hearings still fresh in many people’s memories, America is about to witness another Supreme Court confirmation process, one that may make the last one look dignified by comparison. That would be a shame, because Judge Amy Coney Barrett is a sterling nominee who has shown a reverence for America’s laws and sovereignty.
