9th Circuit upholds Hawaii injunction against Trump Travel Order No. 2

Written by  William A. Jacobson

Finds Trump exceeded authority and violated statutory prohibition against national origin discrimination, refused to address constitutional claims

We’ve been here before. Another judicial opinion upholding an injunction against Trump’s Travel Order No.

2. This time from the 9th Circuit arising out of the injunction by the Hawaii District Court.

The Opinion is embedded below. The Trump administration already has the Hawaii injunction before the Supreme Court, as it previously filed for contingent review of a possible 9th Circuit decision, expecting a losing result. The 4th Circuit Opinion also is before the Supreme Court for a stay of the injunctions, the opposition to which is due today.

The 9th Circuit does not focus as heavily on Trump’s campaign statements as did the 4th Circuit in finding a constitutional violation. Rather, the main ground in the 9th Circuit Opinion is that Trump exceeded his authority under statutes. The court does address alleged “national origin discrimination” based on statutory prohibition. Here’s an excerpt from the introductory paragraphs summarizing the ruling:

The Immigration and Nationality Act (“INA”) gives the President broad powers to control the entry of aliens, and to take actions to protect the American public. But immigration, even for the President, is not a one-person show.

Transplant all refugees to these judge's neighborhoods. Let's see how "loving" they are then. These liberal appointed judges are lining their pockets with Soros money and need to be dropped in a deep ditch!

What evidence do you have these judges were bribed by Soros or any of his organizations? I only wish such could be proven. Then the DOJ could try Soros, and if convicted they could revoke his citizenship and deport him. As for any judges shown to have taken any bribes, they could be impeached, even if the Democrats in the Senate refused to allow a conviction. That would show where the Democrat Party's loyalty is.

The judge in Hawaii is an Obama butt buddy and Obama went to see him the DAY before the insane UNCONSTITUTIONAL ruling and then had dinner with him the next day (wonder if they spent the night together?) . The 9th is a noted bench load of moronic liberal anti-Constitutional Oligarchs who are famous for the number of decisions over turned in the Supreme Court.

100% right on Pamela. Barry the fairy use to sell drugs and do tricks for $$$ during his Chum gang years.

Who knew that we would put judges in place that cannot even READ, these flaming liberal "activist" judges ALL need replacement and SOON!

It's not that these judges can't read. They can likely read better than you or I. It's just that they're ALITERATE and so they take an eisegetical approach to interpreting the Constitution and statutes.

That's why we need Pres. Trump to appoint more federal judges who're conservative constitutionalists.

ALITERATE: a person who can read and write but CHOOSES to not learn from what they read.
EISEGETICAL: interpreting a text according to one's preconceived feelings and emotions rather than from what the authors meant.

Eisegetical aliterate: usually a liberal who refuses to interpret the Constitution or the laws according to what the Founders and legislators clearly meant. (my definition)

That's AWESOME. So when Hawaii gets attacked or any other city or state don't complain. The flaming circuit judges and liberals have ask for this. We, the people, will have to take care of our selves. Since so many cities, states, and law enforcement or lack thereof, want sanctuary areas, soon it will be game on. When anything happens AMERICA - don't complain. Ya'll asked for it.

I'm going to make an unpopular prediction...the three female judges on the supreme court, will rule against Trump do wholly to their emotions'....NOT based on the law. Just as the ninth circuit always make their rulings.

Ronald, this fat thumbed curmudgeon hit the down vote button by accident. I like your comment. I think you're right that the liberals on the SCOTUS will indeed vote in an eisegetical manner, i.e., according to their preconceived feelings and opinions, and not what the Framers meant.

This is why it's so important for President Trump to fill all of the vacant federal judge vacancies asap to over-rule the liberal judges put in place by obama during the liberals 8 years of destroying our Republic. Meanwhile their should be a vacancy or two in the Supreme court coming up? To be filled with Justices who can rule by law & constitution rather than by politics as do the liberals put in place by obama.

Tom, it was a bad morning for me before I had my coffee. I down voted your comment when I should have up voted it. You're so right that we need Pres. Trump to fill all federal court vacancies with judges who interpret the Constitution and Amendments as the writers intended. As the Framers of the Constitution provided for the Republic, if we don't like a policy that's constitutional, then we've the option of changing the Constitution through Article 5 of the Constitution. No congressmen or women or judges have the right to do otherwise.

Maybe we can only hope that the terrorists make the 9th their next target...or the Hawaii court....soft targets..no weapons....only then will these liberal anti-American globalists...maybe open their eyes.

The biggest question that must be asked after Manchester is: why there is a want to keep the people UNSAFE and to risk an attack at any cost?!!! There should be no question on this issue.. anyone who wants to say NO to the import of potentially dangerous people from known dangerous countries.. must have a screw loose...

When The Supreme Judge of All, ( God) , holds court, those little cur mongrel judges are going to weep and moan. Their obstruction of justice will be dully noted, and they may get a sentence which can not be reversed by Satan, or mere man!

Ginsberg needs to recuse herself because she has already publicy voiced her opinion against Trump, no matter what he wants. Another liberal obstructionist in a place of authority when she should have left the country like she threatened during the campaign!

Considering that while in Office former President Clinton signed a Presidential proclamation in recognition of the Fact that Statehood had been forced on the Sovereign COUNTRY of HAWAII By a handful of White Plantation owner's. This meaning, He recognized Hawaii is not a Legitimate State, If this is the case, Then it stands to reason that the Court in Hawaii has no standing to make Decisions for the United States of America in any capacity whatsoever!

Thank you President Trump for your common sense approach to keep America safe, you will probably need to take to the supreme court. Also it would be real good to impeach the 9th circuit court, Politically correct idiots don't deserve to sit on any court, even a kangaroo court!

Are we to be surprised that the 9th circus chooses to use this opportunity to oppose Pres. Trump instead of actually ruling on the executive order IAW the U.S. Constitution.
