Judge Jon Tigar, an Obama appointee, halted Trump’s policy banning asylum seekers who pass through another country while they are journeying to the United States.
Earlier Wednesday, a DC judge refused to block the new asylum policy from being implemented, so Obama’s judge stepped up to the plate.
Thegatewaypundit.com reports: Trump boasted about the asylum win earlier Wednesday before the activist judge came in and nullified the earlier asylum victory for Trump.
Left-wing Politico reported:
In a 45-page order, Tigar found the rule ignored a pair of federal statutes that outline guidelines for barring asylum seekers who transit through a designated “safe third country” or have permanently resettled in another country.
The new regulation, he wrote, “is likely invalid because it is inconsistent with the existing asylum laws.”
Additionally, he found that the decision to enact the measure was “arbitrary and capricious.” While it purports to offer protections for migrants, the ban could potentially expose them to grave dangers as they’re forced to seek protection in Mexico or other nations before applying for asylum in the U.S., he said.
The anti-American ACLU praised judge Tigar’s decision to temporarily halt the asylum policy.
“The court recognized, as it did with the first asylum ban, that the Trump administration was attempting an unlawful end run around asylum protections enacted by Congress,” ACLU attorney Lee Gelernt said in a written statement.
This isn’t the first time that Judge Tigar has stepped in and abused his power from the bench.
In November Tigar blocked Trump’s asylum policy if the migrants entered the US through a port of entry.
“More federal judges pretending they were elected to run asylum policy,” attorney Robert Barnes said in response to the preliminary injunction issued by Tigar.
TIme for Trump to tell the Courts that their judicial actions end at the court house steps... they can appeal all the way to the Supreme Court and it will take Congress to IMPEACH, if they agree with the Courts, before the President needs to obey an unelected activist judge's order...
The Judiciary are not the final word on anything... they are a coequal branch of government and were supposed to be the least powerful of all three Branches. Time to put them in their place. Begin Impeaching judges who abuse their offices and act with BAD CONDUCT... while in office. A judges judicial auhtority extends ONLY TO THE CASE BEFORE HIM... any application by judicial fiat is unlawful and the President needs to so inform the court.
The new rule merely sets aside former RULES not law... the US Assylum law is clear, the problem arises out of the many poor court decisions and the improper use of rule making by former administrations. The former administratiion used EO's and Rule making to circumvent and vilate the actual statutory law. This must end now... we are being invaded.
Mr. President declare martial law... suspend all civil courts with jurisdiction along the southern border and institute martial law along the Southern Border and in DC... then do as Lincoln did... go after the sedition in your midst with a vengence ... use the Patriot Act to its fullest and send all those inciting riot, sedition, engaging in espeonage and other criminal conduct to GITMO for trail by military tribunal at your convience.
Take that money the Supreme Court has OK'd and get crackin on BUILDING THE WALL-- DO IT NOW.
