    Appeals court denies Trump request to immediately reinstate travel ban

    Appeals court denies Trump request to immediately reinstate travel ban

    Published February 05, 2017 FoxNews.com

    Early Sunday morning a federal appeals court denied the Justice Department's request for an immediate reinstatement of President Donald Trump's ban on accepting certain travelers and refugees.

    The DOJ filed an appeal of a judge’s order temporarily stopping Trump’s travel ban on Saturday night, saying it’s the “sovereign prerogative" of a president to admit or exclude aliens.

    The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco instead asked for the Justice Department to file a counter-response by Monday afternoon.

    The higher court's denial of an immediate stay means the legal battles will continue for days at least.

    The appeal stated that the district court’s ruling “conflicts with the basic principle that an alien seeking initial admission to the United States requests a privilege and has no constitutional rights regarding his application."

    The appeal also said the temporary order blocking Trump’s ban was an overreach of judicial authority. The order was issued by U.S. District Judge James Robart in Seattle.

    "Judicial second-guessing of the President's national security determination in itself imposes substantial harm on the federal government and the nation at large," it said.

    Acting Solicitor General Noel Francisco argued on Saturday night saying that the president has the power to decide who can enter or stay in the United States.

    "The power to expel or exclude aliens is a fundamental sovereign attribute, delegated by Congress to the executive branch of government and largely immune from judicial control," the brief says.

    The Justice Department asked that the federal judge's order be stayed pending resolution of the appeal, so that the ban can "ensure that those approved for admission do not intend to harm Americans and that they have no ties to terrorism."

    Trump’s controversial executive order has caused unending confusion for many travelers trying to reach the U.S.

    Demonstrations took place outside the White House, in New York and near his estate in Palm Beach, Florida, where Trump was attending the annual American Red Cross fundraising gala.

    "We'll win," Trump told reporters Saturday night. "For the safety of the country, we'll win."

    The department on Saturday advised refugee aid agencies that those set to travel before Trump signed his order will now be allowed in. A State Department official said in an email obtained by The Associated Press that the government was "focusing on booking refugee travel" through Feb. 17 and working to have arrivals resume as soon as Monday.

    The Homeland Security Department no longer was directing airlines to prevent visa-holders affected by Trump's order from boarding U.S.-bound planes. The agency said it had "suspended any and all actions" related to putting in place Trump's order.

    Hearings have also been held in court challenges nationwide. Washington state and Minnesota argued that the temporary ban and the global suspension of the U.S. refugee program harmed residents and effectively mandated discrimination.

    The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    Well, that's a shame, but not surprising. I would imagine they would want debate and briefs to reverse the lower court ruling but to do that expediently they would have to "wake the AG" in Olympia. Apparently neither the Federal Judge in Seattle, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco nor the Attorney General in Olympia sense any alarm, concern, need, priority or urgency for American safety, security, treasury or economic welfare threatened by at least 7 high-risk terrorist countries. The inconvenience and non-existent civil rights of non-citizens not in the country were higher "values".

    That's where we are. Hopefully, the DOJ can impress upon this appeals court the significance of the Executive Order to the safety, security, treasury and economic welfare of the United States and the citizens thereof.

    Lets keep our heads down and our fingers crossed. If we win, you know the AG will take it to the US Supreme Court, if we lose, you know Trump will take it to the US Supreme Court, so that's where it's going no matter what the 9th District Court of Appeals decides.

    If the court splits 4-4, then the 9th Circuit Ruling stands, whatever it is.

    Makes you wonder if the goal of the Attorney General of the state of Washington is "Death to America, By Court Order".

    Sad.

    Now they will be pouring in as they know the ban will be reinstated in the future as Trumps lawyers will prove the harm they bring to this country.

    I'm not sure the DOJ Lawyers are actually doing everything they should to win this. I think most of them are Obama and Bush Open Borders Lawyers.
