This rogue judge will be the next swamp creature looking for employment.


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


Wrong.

Their job is to uphold the laws of the land.

Not to rule based on emotions.


No [SNIP] The judges don't uphold the law, they interpret the law.

The executive is the branch that upholds the law.

That's Trump's job.

Anybody got the actual court order from today?



Apparently not. And tongue waggers say it's not crap until it's in writing for review.

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.





This has to do with visa holders. Restrictions on who gets visas is another thing entirely.

While it may not be enforceable until signed, there isn't much "review" involved.

Well, the petitioner must have standing, as detailed in the specific arguments made. If it's not available to read, how does anyone know?

How can a state have standing on immigration issues?

A federal judge has standing in presidential actions.


There is a difference between standing and a court's jurisdiction. Standing relates to the parties.


What I don't understand is how a state can have standing to sue on behalf of foreign nations not present in the US.

I presume they are petitioning on behalf of the H1B using Tech companies. In which case, why does their monetary investment in a non-citizen supersede national security?

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



The dreamers EO related to people physically within the US. They were the parties.

The claim was that federal judges do not have the authority to block an EO.
The claim was false.

We are going to have to wait for the written order.

I think it is extraordinary the judge gave the state standing on any grounds to address visas issued to foreign nationals outside the US.

As I have said, standing and jurisdiction are not the same thing.

Courts don't have standing....they have jurisdiction.

Only parties can have standing.

The EO goes beyond visas.

You obviously don't understand the standing issue. A state only has standing to sue on behalf of its citizens (little 'c'). To my knowledge no federal court has ever ruled that a state can sue on behalf of non-citizens not physically within the state. That is something completely new.

If that is the case, States can now sue for all kinds of foreign policy issues.

The motion is meaningless. Of course they will argue the permissibility of their action. What really matters is the judge's written ruling on the standing issue.

I'll wait to see what his ruling is there.

The judge issued the restraining order based upon the motion. I suppose you will have to wait for the written order before issuing your personal judgement upon it.
