Hawaiian rogue judge has until Tuesday to respond to Trump SCOTUS motion

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 15, 2017

Justice Clarence Thomas: “compromise will invite a flood of litigation….”

Oh, was Justice Clarence Thomas rightwhat a hash has been made in the courts as the fight goes on to define “bona fide relationship.”

Are you as sick of this as I am?  Go here to read my previous post on the judge in Hawaii (the state that only “welcomes” a tiny number of refugees) who thinks he has the legal right to write refugee law (just as  the Supreme Court did as well!).

This just an hour ago from Reuters:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Supreme Court has asked the State of Hawaii to respond by Tuesday at noon to President Donald Trump’s motion to block a judge’s ruling that prevented his travel ban from being applied to grandparents of U.S. citizens and refugees already being processed by resettlement agencies, the court’s public information office said on Saturday.

In a court filing on Friday, the administration asked the justices to overturn Thursday’s decision by a U.S. district judge in Hawaii, which limited the scope of the administration’s temporary ban on refugees and travelers from six Muslim-majority countries.

Don’t get too hung up on the grandparents part of this, the important point for followers of RRW is the question of whether a federal refugee contractor*** is a “bona fide entity.”

See all of my previous posts on the really really dumb thing the Supreme Court did in the first place in my category: Supreme Court.

***Federal contractors/middlemen/lobbyists/community organizers paid by you to place refugees in your towns and cities.  Because their income is largely dependent on taxpayer dollars based on the number of refugees admitted to the US, the only way for real reform of how the US admits refugees is to remove the contractors from the process.

    I don’t understand how the Trump administration plans to operate without sufficient expert personnel…Ann should be on the inside, imho, to take care of problems in advance.

      Thanks for the vote of confidence, but if I went on the inside, who would be out here writing critically about all this stuff every day? Do you remember Julia Hahn one of Breitbarts best young reporters? She went to the inside, do you ever see or hear boo about her? Yet, by many accounts Breitbart is worse off without her.

        so who’s staffing this issue other than Miller in the speechwriting department? who watches the civil service?


  2. Ann- I think we are starting to see some positive actions coming from the Trump administration, at least this past week. There’s an article in today’s Daily Mail that says they are looking at trying to expand their power to deport illegals WITHIN 90 DAYS OF THEIR ENTERING THE USA. This law or regulations apparently already exists and does not require approval by Congress. It sounds like if this was enforced we could send back an awful lot of “refugees” before they get set up on the dole. Maybe someone has been reading your blog.
