Lisa Boothe and Jessica Tarlov went head to head over the Supreme Court's temporary upholding of President Trump's travel ban.
The Supreme Court on Monday green lighted the executive order, which bans travelers from six majority Muslim countries that are either state sponsors or safe harbors for terrorism.
The decision negated lower courts' challenges to the constitutionality of the order, which Trump originally called a "Muslim ban."
The victory was "not a terrible thing" for the Trump administration, Jessica Tarlov said on "Outnumbered" Wednesday.
She said the lower courts are having "incredibly important discussions" about family and work ties between the U.S. and blocked countries.
"President Obama didn't start admitting more refugees until 2016, well within his second term and almost when he was on his way out, so wow, real political courage for you, President Obama," Lisa Boothe said.
"Of course we should be looking at these countries," she concluded.
