Trump administration challenges federal judge’s decision to block newest travel ban

Trump administration challenges federal judge’s decision to block newest travel ban, Washington Examiner, Ryan Lovelace, October 25, 2017

The Justice Department challenged a federal judge’s decision to block President Trump’s newest travel ban effort and urged the courts to hear its case in an expedited fashion.

The Justice Department Tuesday asked the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals to review the decision by a federal judge in Maryland to block Trump’s newest travel restrictions hours before the restrictions were set to begin. Federal judges in Maryland and Hawaii acted last week to block the latest travel ban.

The Justice Department noted the likelihood the U.S. Supreme Court could soon hear the case too.

“The district court’s nationwide injunction prevents the government from implementing a national-security measure issued in response to a global review, undertaken by the Departments of Homeland Security and State, of foreign governments’ information-sharing practices and risk factors,” wrote the Justice Department attorneys on Tuesday.

“The injunction prevents the president from responding as he deems fit to risks the government has identified as currently affecting the nation’s safety.”

The Trump administration argued its challenge warranted it be expedited “on a schedule that will allow for Supreme Court review in the current term.”

The last of the legal challenges to Trump’s earlier travel ban measures, crafted by a second executive order, were rendered moot by the Supreme Court on Tuesday following the expiration of the 120-day refugee ban. The justices previously scrapped oral arguments over the travel ban litigation from its calender and tossed Trump v. International Refugee Assistance Project following the end of the 90-day travel ban at issue.

The legal fight over Trump’s September proclamation implementing new travel ban restrictions began before the Supreme Court finished its review of the earlier legal fights without commenting on the merits of the travel ban cases.

    Time to remove these rogue judges on whatever grounds may apply. Either they adjudicate according to Constitutional law or they leave. Wearing a black robe means nothing if their integrity is a devoid.

      Within the law or outside the law ?

      • Hadenoughalready Says:

        Within, of course. Otherwise, we’re no better than they.

          you are a good guy perhaps a bit naive .
          Fair play in a war ??

          • Hadenoughalready Says:

            Naive? Perhaps.
            “Fair play”? No. You can’t play “fair” when you’re up against evil. You have to be righteous and brutal.

            the end results justifies the means ?!?!

            Question: is breaking the laws made by the slave masters righteous ?

          • Hadenoughalready Says:

            On the contrary; the means justify the end. Man’s laws are not always “righteous”. Only G-d’s laws are. They’re called the Ten Commandments and are the basis of man’s laws; even though they won’t admit it.

          • joopklepzeiker Says:

            And that is why i have problems with that righteous .
            your words :Within, of course. Otherwise, we’re no better than they.

            President Donald Trump is leaning toward appointing both Standford University economist John Taylor and former investment Jerome “Jay” Powell to top positions at the Federal Reserve, according to people familiar with the president’s thinking.

          • Hadenoughalready Says:

            I’m not familiar with either of these people.
