When a Ninth Circuit panel issued a decision striking down President Trump’s original Travel Ban, I described its opinion as “limited in impact, but full of mischief.” The biggest piece of mischief, I thought, was the panel’s suggestion the administration’s order violates the Establishment and Equal Protection Clauses because it was intended to disfavor Muslims.
Citing statements made by Trump when he ran for president, the panel found that this argument raises “serious allegations and present significant constitutional questions.” However, it “reserve[d] consideration of these claims until the merits of this appeal have been fully briefed.”
This bit of result-driven idiocy has now become the basis for the decision by a federal district judge in Hawaii striking down the Trump administration’s new travel ban.
President Trump MUST respond to this judicial overreach. At this point the 9th circus had stripped the Executive Branch of ALL power and authority. This judges “logic” can be used to prohibit every single presidential decision up to and including Veto power, and command of the military.
