Spicer Slams Ninth Circuit: 'They Have a Horrible Record of Interpreting The Law'
But, as Politicoreported on Wednesday, Judge William Orrick, who handed down the ruling blocking Trump's executive order on sanctuary cities, isn't actually on the 9th Circuit court, as Trump suggested.
This was yet another stay on a Trump executive order after a federal appeals court blocked the original travel ban that prohibited travelers from several Muslim-majority countries from entering into the U.S. The administration then revised the order, but the new version also is stalled in court.
Trump on Wednesday later added in two separate tweets: "Out of our very big country, with many choices, does everyone notice that both the "ban" case and now the "sanctuary" case is brought in. the Ninth Circuit, which has a bad record of being overturned (close to 80%)".
Out of our very big country, with many choices, does everyone notice that both the "ban" case and now the "sanctuary" case is brought in ...
"I do think that the Ninth Circuit, which is notoriously liberal, has it in for Donald Trump", Bolling said, noting that two of the major rulings against Trump's executive orders have come from the same circuit.
A single Republican-appointed federal judge in Texas, for instance, blocked Obama's attempt to temporarily grant legal status to some immigrants living in the US illegally.
If Trump is right about the ultimate destination of the sanctuary cities case, he'll face a court reinforced by his own nominee, conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch. "Without clarification regarding the Order's scope or legality, the Counties will be obligated to take steps to mitigate the risk of losing millions of dollars in federal funding, which will include placing funds in reserve and making cuts to services". But the Justice Department sent letters last week advising communities to prove they are in compliance.
"Once again, a single district judge - this time in San Francisco - has ignored Federal immigration law to set a new immigration policy for the entire country", it said. "It's outrageous", Trump said to the Washington Examiner in an interview at the White House.
In the last Supreme Court term, the 9th Circuit came in second on that score.
Among his many problems, our President doesn't know difference b/w "the Ninth Circuit" and a U.S. District Court.
The Trump administration says sanctuary cities allow risky criminals back on the street and that the order is needed to keep the country safe.
San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera praised the ruling and said the president was "forced to back down". "The president has called it "a weapon" to use against jurisdictions that disagree with his preferred policies of immigration enforcement". "But we are confident we will ultimately prevail in the Supreme Court, just as we will prevail in our lawful efforts to impose immigration restrictions necessary to keep terrorists out of the United States".
