Judge Refuses To Halt Trump’s New Immigration Order

Follow on FacebookFollow on Twitter

A federal district court denied a request to place an emergency restraining order on President Donald Trump’s modified immigration executive order, an attorney representing states opposing the order told Reuters Friday night.

The initial executive order posted by the Trump administration — which restricted travel from seven countries with majority Muslim populations — last January was challenged by lawyers in states such as Washington and Minnesota.

Seattle U.S. District Court Judge James Robart issued a temporary restraining order against the initial policy last month.

The new order narrowed the travel restriction down to six countries and would give exception to green card holders among other changes. According to Reuters, Robart did not apply his restraining order to the new immigration order.

Sec. of State Rex Tillerson defended Trump’s new order last week when the president signed it, saying Trump is using “his rightful authority” to keep Americans safe.

“This order is part of our ongoing efforts to eliminate vulnerabilities that radical Islamic terrorists can and will exploit,” Tillerson added.

    Robart had NO business placing a restraining order on the first travel ban. The POTUS has authority to halt immigration from ANY Country for ANY reason he seems necessary. He has the authority to stop any person or any group ∽ be it religious or otherwise until such a time HE deems necessary. The Judicial branch has 0 authority in matters of Nat’l Security and not only usurped the Executive branch of Gov’t but the Legislative branch who granted that power to the POTUS.
    The Executive & Legislative branches should have IMMEDIATELY teamed up and slapped that court ↓ the MINUTE it even agreed to hear the case. The fact that they did not shows the weakness of the Republican party. You think the Democratic party would have tolerated that? Hell no, and the fact is they’re willing to do whatever it takes to turn this Republic into a socialist nation and they’re winning this fight by far. Our party isn’t willing to do whatever it takes to save this Republic. The winner of this fight is already known unless some drastic changes are made. I’m not sure Trump’s the warrior we all hoped he was.

    That’s because he can’t. His other ruling was dubious. Backed by the nine circuit, bunch of Yahoo!’s.

    If he had the authority there would have never been a restraining order.Trump has to take back power from the judges who hate America.
