Seattle Judge Issues Nationwide Restraining Order on Immigration Ban

A federal judge in Seattle on Friday ordered a temporary nationwide restraining order to halt President Trump’s executive order that bans refugees and asylum seekers from seven countries in the Middle East and North Africa, the Washington Examiner reported.

U.S. District Judge James Robart ruled in favor of a lawsuit by Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson, who is taking action on certain provisions in the week-old executive action. Robart’s restraining order is granted on a national level and will take effect immediately, according to multiple reports.

The former George W. Bush-appointed judge’s order will likely lead to a circuit split due to an opposite ruling by a Boston judge on Friday, forcing the matter to be decided by the Supreme Court.

  1. The ban is temporary – do they understand that part of it at all.
    The Dems are making gibberish of their intentions and looking foolish.

  2. No surprise. Anything to keep trouble coming to the country the Dems will do and all the liberal judges also. I don’t care of Bush appointed this guy — we got Roberts from Bush also.

    It is temporary and there are many precedents including Obama about whom no one should speak in anything but adoring voice.

  3. Hizzoner DOES understand that this is a contradiction?

    Most of the stealth jihadis which he’s forcing upon his countrymen reject the ultimate authority by which he’s allowing them in.

  4. It’s okay for Americans to get diddled with by TSA but when vaunted Muslims are diddled….uh, NO!

    We look forward to Mike Pence as President on or around March 1st. Then, Muslims will wish the Donald was back in town!!!

  5. So, I’m guessing that U.S. District Judge James Robart is not on Trump’s Christmas list… AND he is probably more likely to be killed by an Islamic terrorist than to be nominated for SCOTUS… Way to go to move your career forward!

    I think all of this LibTardism is a wonderful thing– all of the domestic enemies of the USA are revealing themselves!

    Now what did my oath state again? Something about “…defend the USA against all enemies, both foreign and domestic…”? Hmmm… What’s a “domestic enemy”? Are we a TRAITOR to the USA if we don’t take action to obey our oath? Can anyone that knows the law comment on this?
