It is confusing and hopefully later there will be more clarity, but reportedly, overnight, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has ordered both sides (the Washington State court that stopped Trump’s temporary halt of certain migrants and the US Justice Department) by tomorrow to prepare briefs supporting their arguments.
So, if those bureaucrats working in the US State Department attempt to resume bringing refugees in to the US, they risk leaving refugees stranded in airports (again)—pawns for their political agenda.
From the Daily Mail:
President Donald Trump has lost an appeal against a court ruling blocking his travel ban on certain travellers and all refugees.
The 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco instead asked both the state of Washington and the Trump administration early on Sunday to file more arguments by Monday afternoon.
More here and we can add more links as the day goes on.
As usual CNN this morning was on the side of stripping President Trump of his power to control immigration, while during the Obama Administration they were overjoyed and supportive as Obama said immigration was his prerogative under the Constitution. The double standard is maddening to behold.
And, to further my annoyance level this morning. They are blasting Trump for saying something derogatory about the US in his O’Reilly interview when they said not a peep when Obama went on his apology tour of the Middle East and Africa early in his Administration.
By the way, where is Congress? We have three branches of government. Can’t they do more there to support the President?
