That's the order that bans people from seven mainly Muslim nations ,tweets expected to follow.

A federal judge in Seattle on Friday granted a nationwide temporary restraining order blocking U.S. President Donald Trump's recent action barring nationals from seven countries from entering the United States. The judge's order represents a major challenge to the Trump administration, which is expected to immediately appeal. The judge declined to stay the order, suggesting that travel restrictions could be lifted immediately.

You clearly don't understand the law or the Constitution. He/she is doing their job.

The Left acts like we are killing people in these countries in their own homes.... That was Obama's Administration.

Wrong.

Their job is to uphold the laws of the land.

Not to rule based on emotions.

Are you under the impression that a federal judge can be simply fired because the rulings he/she makes are unliked?

You don't seem to understand what you're talking about.

The judicial branch is in charge of deciding the meaning of laws, how to apply them to real situations, and whether a law breaks the rules of the Constitution

I don't agree with this but I am not a federal judge. I would like to see what evidence was brought fourth to deem it necessary. I'm thinking it was Trumps mouth as the article does not address it.

I smell a FF coming.

Actually, this is EXACTLY how our Constitutional Republic is supposed to work. Checks/balances. So, calm down Dolores and let the system manage itself.

His job is to interpret the law. He did so. If he's wrong, which I happen to think he is, his decision will be overturned at a higher level.

To say he should be removed is rather emotional on your part.

From the OP:



The challenge was brought by the state of Washington and later joined by the state of Minnesota. The Seattle judge ruled that the states have legal standing to sue, which could help Democratic attorneys general take on Trump in court on issues beyond immigration.

The decision came on a day that attorneys from four states were in courts challenging Trump's executive order. The Trump administration justified the action on national security grounds, but opponents labeled it an unconstitutional order targeting people based on religious beliefs.

Earlier on Friday, a federal judge in Boston declined to extend a temporary restraining order that allowed some immigrants into the United States from countries affected by Trump's three-month ban.

Also on Friday in Virginia, a federal judge ordered the White House to provide a list of all people stopped from entering the United States by the travel ban.

Thats what the supreme court will decide on first thing. That way all challeges are quashed for good to it. And they can meet and make a decision in hours if need be in truth.
