Trump is once again having issues trying to ensure the safety of Americans. He recently made a proclamation to try and stop the illegal entry into our country. A judge has overridden his proclamation.
Trump had made the following proclamation to try and prevent illegal entry into the United States.
“The entry of any alien into the United States across the international boundary between the United States and Mexico is hereby suspended and limited… That suspension and limitation shall expire 90 days after the date of this proclamation…”
The 9th circuit Judge Tigar countered Trump’s move to discourage illegal entry in our country.
“Whatever the scope of the president’s authority, he may not rewrite the immigration laws to impose a condition that Congress has expressly forbidden,” Tigar’s decision reads. Tigar is an Obama appointee to the federal trial court in San Francisco.”
Trump commented on the Judge’s ruling.
“I think it’s a disgrace when every case gets filed in the 9th Circuit,” the president said before departing the White House for Mar-a-Lago. “That’s not law, that’s not what this country stands for. Every case that gets filed in the 9th Circuit, we get beaten and then we end up having to go to the Supreme Court, like the travel ban, and we won.”
Sarah Sanders like many Americans saw this and felt compelled to address the Judge’s decision.
“At this very moment, massive numbers of aliens are arriving at our southern border, threatening to incapacitate our already overwhelmed immigration system. Yet now, a single district judge has issued a nationwide temporary restraining order preventing the executive branch from performing its Constitutional duty to enforce our borders and control entry into the United States,” Sanders’ statement read.”
The DOJ and DHS together put out a statement opposed to the judge’s decision.
“Our asylum system is broken, and it is being abused by tens of thousands of meritless claims every year,” a joint Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security statement declared. “It is absurd that a set of advocacy groups can be found to have standing to sue to stop the entire Federal Government from acting so that illegal aliens can receive a government benefit to which they are not entitled.”
“We look forward to continuing to defend the Executive Branch’s legitimate and well-reasoned exercise of its authority to address the crisis at our southern border.”
This judge is halting progress. Trump’s whole goal was to make a deterrent for illegally entering the country. We need more deterrents. This judge is not doing anyone any favors. But what can you expect from an Obama appointed judge?
