This right here is why the Ninth Circuit Court should be split up. They have once again blocked an executive order from President Trump… this time on cutting funding to illegal sanctuary cities. Trump is vowing to take this one all the way to the Supreme Court and he should. These rogue judges who were set up by Obama are blocking every step Trump wants to take and that as President, he should have the power to take. President Trump is right in calling this a weapon to be used against communities that disagree with the left. He’s also right when he says this judge and the left have innocent blood all over their hands because of this.
Yes, the executive order should apply to all federal funding as these cities are breaking federal laws. And yes, San Francisco and Santa Clara County should be targeted because they are THE biggest violators of federal law over illegal immigration. I predict that if this gets to the Supreme Court, it will not stand as it is a specious argument. The Ninth Circuit has gone totally rogue and must be stopped. It is imperative that we do so now for our survival. The Trump administration should immediately appeal to vacate this decision. This judge is deeply in the pocket of the left… Orrick raised at least $200,000 for Obama and donated more than $30,000 to groups supporting him.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — For the third time in two months, a federal judge has knocked down an immigration order by President Donald Trump and used Trump’s own language against him.
In a ruling on Tuesday, U.S. District Judge William Orrick quoted Trump to support his decision to block the president’s order to withhold funding from “sanctuary cities” that do not cooperate with U.S. immigration officials.
Trump called the sanctuary cities order a “weapon” against communities that disagree with his preferred immigration policy, Orrick said. The judge also cited a February interview in which he said the president threatened to cut off funding to California, saying the state “in many ways is out of control.”
The first comment was evidence that the administration intended the executive order to apply broadly to all sorts of federal funding, and not a relatively small pot of grant money as the Department of Justice had argued, the judge said.
The second statement showed the two California governments that sued to block the order – San Francisco and Santa Clara County – had good reason to believe they would be targeted, Orrick said.
This is not Presidential or federal overreach… this is the enforcement of the rule of law and the left has stacked the courts with Marxist judges to prevent the law from being followed. I’m with Mark Levin on this: “Were there any federal district judges out there who weren’t appointed by Barack Obama?” Followed by: “It appears all of these immigration cases wind up in front of left-wing kook judges,” he added. They are bastardizing the law here.
Levin added: “It is remarkable that we have federal judges now, who are appointed by the most radical leftist president in American history, who take his political philosophy, reverse what is basically one hundred years of jurisprudence, that they have fought for, and then impose their will.” Exactly right. In a lengthy statement released on Tuesday night by Trump’s press secretary, the White House said Orrick’s decision to block a ban on funding for sanctuary cities was “a gift to criminal gangs and cartels. San Francisco, and cities like it, are putting the well-being of criminal aliens before the safety of our citizens, and those city officials who authored these policies have the blood of dead Americans on their hands,” the statement read. These rogue judges must be dealt with at some point here. Jeff Sessions certainly has his hands full. This time, go all the way to the Supreme Court and settle this.
