This past month, in an effort to deny asylum to people attempting to cross the Southern border to seek freedom and a better life for their families, our Racist-in-Chief proclaimed that he would ban entry to all migrants in his so-called “caravan.”
Sadly for Trump, his racist attempts at barring entry to people seeking asylum failed.
According to The Hill:
‘Judge Jon Tigar of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California then sided with opponents of President Trump’s policy, granting their request for a temporary restraining order against the policy denying asylum to migrants who enter the U.S. illegally.’
Judge Tigar, an appointee of President Obama, stated:
‘Whatever the scope of the President’s authority, he may not rewrite the immigration laws to impose a condition that Congress has expressly forbidden.’
Our so-called “president” of course, blasted this decision, dismissing Judge Tigar as an “Obama era judge” who was just out to get him. Trump’s remarks drew heavy criticism from Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, who stated:
‘We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges. What we have is an extraordinary group of dedicated judges doing their level best to do equal right to those appearing before them.’
But this didn’t stop Trump from continuing to enact his racist ban, as last month he filed an appeal in an attempt to block Judge Tigar’s order that would prevent Trump from denying entry to those seeking asylum. Trump failed… Again…
‘The San Francisco-based 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday denied the Trump administration’s effort to delay a judge’s order blocking enforcement of its asylum policy.
‘”We agree with the district court that the Rule is likely inconsistent with existing United States law. Accordingly, we DENY the Government’s motion for a stay.”
Trump is likely to blow a gasket over this news, so be prepared for one of his early morning Twitter tantrums.
