Are these judges privy to intelligence briefings? How is this not an infringement on the executive branch. I don’t see how President Trump is overreaching. But I do know that this will keep these San Francisco judges in good stead with their friends.
Is political correctness again supplanting the Constitution and the rule of law?
From the Washington Examiner.
A federal appeals court decided to keep in place the temporary restraining order halting President Trump’s immigration ban as other proceedings move through the lower courts.
The decision by the three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to deny a stay of the restraining order does not serve as a ruling on the merits of the ban itself, but puts the Trump administration in a difficult spot.
Trump’s team could seek urgent intervention from the Supreme Court, but lifting the ban would require winning over five justices on the eight-justice court. If the high court divides evenly along ideological lines, the block of Trump’s ban would stay in place and the immigration ban likely would become a central theme in the battle over Judge Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation to the high court.
