Breaking news reports indicate that Saturday night, President Donald Trump’s Department Of Justice has officially filed an appeal to the liberal federal judge who issued a restraining order on Trump’s travel restrictions executive order.
If this judge thought for a New York second that Trump wouldn’t fight back, well, he was sorely mistaken.
The Hill has the developing story:
The Justice Department on Saturday evening filed a notice that it will formally appeal a federal judge’s ruling halting President Trump’s immigration order.
Justice Department Attorney Michelle Bennett’s filing was made in response to a temporary nationwide restraining order issued Friday that halted Trump’s executive order banning citizens of seven countries from entering the United States.
The case now goes to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
The White House issued a statement Friday indicating that it would appeal the judge’s ruling.
“At the earliest possible time, the Department of Justice intends to file an emergency stay of this order and defend the executive order of the President, which we believe is lawful and appropriate,” the White House’s late Friday statement read.
“The president’s order is intended to protect the homeland and he has the constitutional authority and responsibility to protect the American people,” it continued.
Why is it that liberals are hell bent on making America LESS safe than it already is? Trump acted in the interest of national security to protect all American citizens, yet the left doesn’t seem to be able to grasp that whatsoever.
Share this around if you’re proud of Trump for taking the fight back to the courts.
