The first ban was blocked by a ruling that didn’t even mention the relevant statute giving the President the authority to restrict immigration. It isn’t clear yet whether or not this block discusses that law. Activist judges with no regard for the safety of the American people are legislating from the bench with complete indifference to existing laws. If that isn’t reined in, the consequences will be catastrophic, beginning with the jihadis who will take advantage of this judge’s politically correct virtue signaling in order to slip into the U.S. in the near future.
“Federal judge blocks new Trump travel ban,” by Laura Jarrett, CNN, March 15, 2017:
(CNN)A federal judge in Hawaii has blocked President Donald Trump’s new travel ban on Wednesday afternoon, hours before the ban was set to go into effect.
This ruling means that travelers from six Muslim-majority countries and refugees will be able to travel to the US.
The Trump administration took over a month to rewrite the travel ban order after multiple federal courts blocked its implementation last month….
Despite these changes, US District Court Judge Derrick Watson concluded that the new executive order still failed to pass legal muster.
