Former president George Bush has never liked Donald Trump, so it’s no surprise that a Federal Judge he appointed would do something so ridiculous.
Judge James Robart, a Federal Judge out of Seattle, just BLOCKED Trump’s immigration ban nation wide. Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson filed the lawsuit claiming that the travel ban targets Muslims and violates constitutional rights of immigrants and their families. Never mind the fact that Trump’s executive order has NOTHING to do with religion.
But Donald Trump is not going to roll over and allow this. The White House is fighting back and will be filing a halt on the Judge’s ruling.
From the White House:
“The Department of Justice intends to file an emergency stay of this outrageous order and defend the executive order of the President, which we believe is lawful and appropriate,” the late Friday statement read.
“The president’s order is intended to protect the homeland and he has the constitutional authority and responsibility to protect the American people.
“As the law states, ‘Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.’”
It’s a sad day when a president can’t even do his job and keep his people safe without liberals getting in the way. Thank God we have a president who will fight back in order to protect this country!
