    Trump rails against Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals

    BY BRETT SAMUELS - 11/20/18 05:00 PM EST

    President Trump on Tuesday assailed the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, telling reporters that he intends to file a "major complaint" against the court after it dealt his administration yet another legal setback by blocking an order denying asylum to migrants who enter the U.S. illegally.

    "You go to the Ninth Circuit and it's a disgrace, and I'm going to put in a major complaint," Trump told reporters outside the White House when asked about the asylum ruling. He did not elaborate on what specific action he might take.

    The president railed against the court for nearly two minutes, claiming that "everybody who wants to sue the United States" does so in the California-based court because "it means an automatic loss" for his administration.

    "You cannot win if you’re us, a case in the Ninth Circuit, and I think it’s a disgrace when people file, every case gets filed in the Ninth Circuit," Trump said. "That’s not law. That’s not what this country stands for. Every case that gets filed in the Ninth Circuit, we get beaten and then we end up having to go the Supreme Court."

    Judge Jon Tigar late Monday sided with opponents of Trump’s policy prohibiting certain immigrants from claiming asylum, granting their request for a temporary restraining order.

    “Whatever the scope of the President’s authority, he may not rewrite the immigration laws to impose a condition that Congress has expressly forbidden,” Tigar wrote in his 37-page ruling.

    Trump on Tuesday dismissed Tigar without naming him, referring to him as "an Obama judge." Tigar was nominated by the former president in 2012.

    Roughly an hour after Trump finished speaking, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders issued a statement vowing the administration "will take all necessary action to defend the executive branch's lawful response to the crisis at our southern border."

    Sanders decried Tigar's ruling as "another example of activist judges imposing their open borders policy preferences." Her criticism echoed that of former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who regularly argued during his tenure that federal judges had overstepped their bounds in rulings on Trump administration policies.

    The Ninth Circuit, based in San Francisco, has frustrated Trump repeatedly by ruling against his proposed travel ban on several Muslim-majority countries, and a Department of Justice effort to cut off federal funding for so-called sanctuary cities.

    At a White House event earlier Tuesday, the president joked that the Ninth Circuit may attempt to overturn this year's turkey pardons.

    The president has, in the past, been critical of judges and courts that rule against his policies. He referred to the federal judge who initially halted the travel ban as a "so-called judge."

    In 2016, he suggested a judge overseeing a lawsuit against Trump University may be biased against then-candidate Trump because of his Mexican heritage.

    ‘That’s Not Law’ — Donald Trump Previews ‘Major Complaint’ Against Ninth Circuit Cour

    ‘That’s Not Law’ — Donald Trump Previews ‘Major Complaint’ Against Ninth Circuit Court

    President Donald Trump shared his frustration with the Ninth Circuit Court on Tuesday, promising a “major complaint” against them.
    “Well you go to the Ninth Circuit, and it’s a disgrace, we’re going to put in a major complaint,” Trump said. “Because you can’t win if you’re us.”

    The president commented on the court as he left the White House to travel to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida.

    Trump noted his opponents always seemed to file every case against him and in his administration in the Ninth Circuit court.

    “That’s not law, that’s not what this country stands for,” Trump said.

    Trump commented on the court after a district judge in San Francisco, appointed by former President Barack Obama, barred enforcement of the new asylum restrictions set by Trump’s administration at the border.

    Trump reminded reporters that many of the rulings that ended up in the Ninth Circuit, such as the travel ban, ended up at the Supreme Court and were overturned.

    “It’s not going to happen like this anymore,” Trump said.

    The president said he was optimistic that his asylum rules changes would win in the Supreme Court.
