“The ruling, from federal Judge Ann Donnelly, in New York, prevented the removal from the US of people with approved refugee applications, valid visas, and “other individuals… legally authorised to enter the United States”.”
See Trump executive order: US judge temporarily halts deportationsWell, it’s refreshing to see some sand on the rails of the Trump slide into depravity. Let’s see whether the issues of constitutionality hold up. The first case should be easy. USA can’t do legislation retroactively banning people who are on their way in with valid documents. Subsequent issues of banning large classes of people also shouldn’t stand. No doubt Trump will waste the time of courts all the way up to SCOTUS. He may actually have a new appointee in place by the time the case propagates if the Senate does its thing. Go DEMs!
“The policy team at the White House developed the executive order on refugees and visas, and largely avoided the traditional interagency process that would have allowed the Justice Department and homeland security agencies to provide operational guidance”
Justin Trudeau, PM of Canada, wrote, “To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada”
Chuckle. Trump is building a house of cards. His government will be the laughing stock of USA for the mid-term elections if he’s not impeached earlier. An executive violating the constitution multiple times per week will be noticed. This week has made me proud to be a Canadian.
