The dignity of the U.S. judiciary system has gotten an worldwide spotlight after a federal judge issued a temporary nationwide restraining order to prevent the enforcement of U.S. President Donald Trump’s controversial travel ban on citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries. Minnesota state later joined Washington in challenging the order.
On Sunday, Gov. Chris Christie, speaking on “Face the Nation”, drew an important distinction between Americans who want stronger border security and a badly executed policy that initially even blocked immigrants with permanent residence status from entering the United States.
Trump tweeted about the decision, even calling Robart a “so-called judge” and another postulating that “many very bad and unsafe people may be pouring into our country” as a result of the ban being lifted. He accused Robart of opening “up our country to potential terrorists and others that do not have our best interests at heart”. “Just can not believe a judge would put our country in such peril”, he wrote.
Trump thinks the present US Judicial System is like “that of a third-world country” and rigged, a CNN report says, “Folks, we’re living in a third-world country”.
Meanwhile, others say Trump’s attacks could undermine the public’s confidence in the judiciary.
Josh Chafetz, a professor of law at Cornell University in NY, said Trump’s criticism was unusual, coming so early in his presidency.
Donald Trump won the presidency fair and square, but there’s a well-funded movement to resist his victory and defy the new president’s authority over the executive branch of our government. But even that court refused to grant Trump administration any immediate respite till the next hearing that is scheduled for today. However, anything Donald Trump doesn’t like is “bad”, just like the “bad hombres” south of the border he loves to fret so much about. POLITICO: “Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley is strongly leaning toward picking the state’s attorney general to replace U.S. Sen”. He then began to address the oral arguments in the case, which were carried live on some news programs Tuesday evening.
He wrote that under the American system’s separation of powers, a president who is dealt a judicial defeat should bear the loss silently, rather than lash out at the judge in question. “This is a real serious problem, and what I’m focused on is doing our job and making sure that our law enforcement authority have the tools they need to make us safe”.
Unlike state court judges, these men and women are part of the federal court system – along with the Supreme Court and the Courts of Appeals. “Right now we are at risk because of what happened”.
Trump is no longer engaged in the hyperbole of a televised presidential debate. I understand things. I comprehend very well, okay?
All told, Kurzman said, 23 percent of Muslim Americans involved with extremist plots since September 11 had family backgrounds from the seven countries. The union highlighted a series of cases it said were affected, including Iraqi refugees and a Somali woman, “Nadia”, who is a USA citizen but who hopes to marry a Yemeni man.
Despite the insults, Trump was respecting the appeals process, Ryan said at his weekly press conference.
Public colleges and more than 125 American businesses, including numerous titans of the tech industry, have entered the legal battle over President Trump’s extreme vetting executive order, insisting they have inherent rights to hire foreign workers and admit foreign students. The America people are entitled to get what we voted for.
