Shiiiiiit, how does Donald Trump like those judges and courts now, son? After violating the rights of numerous refugees, green card holders and visa carriers, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals told Trump to take his Muslim Ban and shove it. Ok, no, they didn’t say it in those words, but the court voted to uphold the block on the travel ban. With that being said, maybe Trump and his administration will now put a REAL plan in place to monitor potential terrorism. However; based on Trump’s response on Twitter, we shouldn’t hold our breath, man.
So, this entire saga started when James Robart, a district judge in Seattle, put a temporary ban on Trump’s travel order. This was done after both Washington and Minnesota sued. Due to the unconstitutional travel ban, many innocent people, including students, were being detained at various airports. The legality of Trump’s executive order was always in question, and when the case went before the appeals court, the three-person staff upheld Robart’s decision. Judges Michelle Friedland, William Canby Jr. and Richard Clifton unanimously determined that the government had no evidence to support the theory that anyone from the seven countries listed perpetrated any attacks in America. So, it was very reasonable for them to shoot this stupid ass executive order down.
Of course, Trump took to Twitter to berate the judges. I mean, that’s his MO, right? He vows to take this matter all the way to the Supreme Court, but that could take months to be resolved. If Trump is really serious about protecting the country, maybe he should have Steve Bannon draft an order that doesn’t violate people’s basic rights. If time is really of the essence, as he claims, he shouldn’t be wasting time trying to take this to the highest court. In my eyes, Trump only cares about winning and not about doing what’s right for the people. As of right now, he needs to hold this L and regroup. How about going after actual terrorists and not aunts and uncles who are just trying to see their families? I mean, that’s just a suggestion, son.
In the end, fuck Trump, Bannon and their First Amendment-ignoring Muslim Ban. Our country already has a strenuous vetting program that doesn’t break the law. I can say that because I’m a first-generation American who has plenty of family members who’ve had to deal with this country’s immigration policy. *Sigh* Once again, get Donald Trump the fuck outta here, son! LC out.
