So 1/3 of our government has no say?
That's simply incorrect.
'

A federal judge isn't 1/3 of our government. Let alone 3 of them.

The House/Senate/SCOTUS make up the 3/3.

I don't have a problem with this judge rolling this way. But I believe that if anybody should be harmed or killed because terrorists came in from one of those seven countries during the time period that he lifted the ban then he should be held accountable, legally and professionally. He should lose his seat on the bench, lose his license to practice law, and should face criminal charges. Decisions have consequences and he should have to face them.

NONE. ZERO. ZILCH. NADA!

False.

I guess it's ok with you that Obama's EOs were blocked, but not Trump's?

It's not house/senate/scotus. It's Legislative/Executive/Judicial branches. And THIS is how it gets bubbled up to SCOTUS. Mind you, it could be a BS ruling and get reversed.

Because Trump critics haven't taken them to the SCOTUS.

Low level political hacks like these judges don't cut it.

Restraining order.

No problem.

Now they can just instruct Embassies to heavily limit visas.

No law against that.

Maybe it's mission accomplished anyway.

You may want to see which "low level political hack" blocked Obama's immigration EO.

FFS Neo, they just got the ball rolling on that. This is how it works. Cases go up to SCOTUS, they don't start there. It's the court of FINAL ruling.

Interesting part:


The order also temporarily stopped the entry of all refugees into the country and indefinitely halted the settlement of Syrian refugees.

And can they prevent people from "the 7" who have visas, from entering the country?

You may want to read the TERRORIST travel prevention Act passed in 2015 From the DHS.




Pursuant to the Act, the Secretary of Homeland Security had sixty days to determine whether additional countries or areas of concern should be subject to the travel or dual nationality restrictions under the Act. After careful consideration, and in consultation with the Director of National Intelligence and the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Homeland Security has determined that Libya, Somalia, and Yemen be included as countries of concern, specifically for individuals who have traveled to these countries since March 1, 2011. At this time, the restriction on Visa Waiver Program travel will not apply to dual nationals of these three countries. DHS continues to consult with the Department of State and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to develop further criteria to determine whether other countries would be added to this list.

Yes. I know visa waivers are not given to people from those countries.
What's your point? This has no effect on that.

Your wrong the three branches of government are executive (the president) legislative (congress)and judicial (supreme court and federal courts).

Is that so?



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.


3 of those are covered under existing statues under the state department.

The remaining 4 are covering by the Terrorist Travel Prevention Act of 2015.
