AG SESSIONS ROASTED THE TRAITOROUS “JUDGE” IN HAWAII. CALLED HIM OUT ON THE FLOOR AND ACCUSED HIM OF VIOLATING SEPARATION OF POWERS AND UNDERMINING NATIONAL SECURITY.
Statement by Attorney General Jeff Sessions on the Hawaii District Court’s Decision
Attorney General Jeff Sessions today issued the following statement on the Hawaii District Court’s decision:
“Once again, we are faced with a situation in which a single federal district court has undertaken by a nationwide injunction to micromanage decisions of the co-equal Executive Branch related to our national security. By this decision, the district court has improperly substituted its policy preferences for that of the Executive branch, defying both the lawful prerogatives of the Executive Branch and the directive of the Supreme Court.
“The district court has issued decisions that are entrusted to the Executive Branch, undermined national security, delayed necessary action, created confusion, and violated a proper respect for separation of powers. The Supreme Court has had to correct this lower court once, and we will now reluctantly return directly to the Supreme Court to again vindicate the rule of law and the Executive Branch’s duty to protect the nation.”
Jeff Sessions: “The Supreme Court has had to correct this lower court once, and we will now reluctantly return directly to the Supreme Court to again vindicate the rule of law and the Executive Branch’s duty to protect the nation,”
Homeland Security Adviser Tom Bossert said that reports of a Hawaii federal judge’s ruling on President Trump’s so-called travel ban “trouble” him.
U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson ruled Thursday that grandparents are exempted from President Trump’s executive order temporarily barring the entry of refugees. That same ruling also said that if a refugee has received an assurance from a resettlement agency, they are exempted from the ban.
“I would say that, as it was reported to me, it seemed to be fairly broad and something that would trouble me if it was as broad as reported,” Bossert told reporters aboard Air Force One. “In terms of a connection with any group, any refugee organization, it might be read, if the early reports that I looked at were accurate, as something so expansive as to cover every refugee. And that certainly couldn’t be the interpretation the Supreme Court intended.”
Hawaii took in ZERO refugees in 2016. ZERO. Yet the judge from Hawaii keeps challenging the travel ban for all those refugees the state has no intentions of resettling.
