Trump’s words can be used against him in
suit to block DACA order, judge says

San Francisco Chronicle, by Bob Egelko

Original Article

Posted By:poster, 1/12/2018 11:14:53 PM

The federal judge who blocked President Trump from eliminating a program that protects nearly 700,000 young immigrants from deportation issued a follow-up ruling Friday saying the lawsuits challenging the president’s order can seek to prove discrimination, based on Trump’s disparaging comments about Latinos. U.S. District Judge William Alsup of San Francisco issued a nationwide injunction Tuesday preserving the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA, while suits against its repeal continue.

Claims of Discrimination DO NOT grant any greater claim of authority by the judicial branch over the Executive Branch in matters of Immigration.

That was decided long ago.

And DACA is illegal, anyway.

Judge Alsup "cited the presidential candidate’s charge in 2015 that Mexican immigrants are “drug dealers, rapists and killers,” his assertion during a Republican debate that the Mexican government was sending “the bad ones” to the U.S., and his description in August of undocumented immigrants as “animals.”

Odd that a federal judge would cite then candidate Trump´s 2015 comments on immigrants but not President Obama´s repeated statements that, as president, he lacked authority to give amnesty to Illegals (but did so anyway). Also disgusting that a federal judge is oblivious to fact that 40% of his state´s prison population is comprised of illegal aliens, with most of these heartless animals from Mexico.

I sure hope Sessions - assuming he is doing something for the DOJ - assembles a team to return the favor to these judges and nails them on a) ethics, b) professional misconduct, c) clips their pensions, and d) anything else to make these partisan judges´ life a living hell for their crossing over the line into activism by thwarting the Will of the Creators of the Federal Government - the Voters!

At a minimum, these judges going out of their way to insult Trump will steel his resolve to fill the vacancies with conservative judges. Beyond that, their continued over assertion of dictatorial power will wear out their credibility with the public, eventually emboldening Congress to clip their wings.

Alsup has ALREADY been castrated. The so-called judges pulling these stunts to draw attention at the risk of national security should be removed from the bench immediately. The President has the power to protect Americans, whatever it takes. If he doesn´t like it he can move to Mexico. Permanently.

One way to start fixing this problem is break up that whole district and create new ones.

It would allow for adding some of Trump´s new judges hopefully and that would be great in terms of neutering these overreaching judges.

Although judges should be cautious in considering campaign rhetoric as evidence of presidential motives, Alsup said, they need not disregard “clear-cut indications of racial prejudice on the campaign trail.”

In other words, watch out used car salesmen!

The democrat strategy of using the Judicial Branch to hobble the Executive Branch continues to work for them. Much of the blame lies with the lawyers who claim to revere the law but utter not a peep about this unconstitutional overreach because the decisions are going their way. Clearly, they are picking and choosing the aspects of the Constitution that they will defend which says a lot about their integrity or lack thereof.

Hearsay evidence, including statements made outside of court and not subject to cross-examination, are not admissable.
Courts have also ruled, again and again, that political statements made during a campaign are not to be assigned truthfulnness - that voters assume the statements to lack credibility..

I´m sure the judge will try that on for size but he is walking on very thin ice. One can only hope he falls through of his own weighty liberalism.

Washington - After three days of debate and years of work, the House of Representatives rejected the $867 billion farm bill that included a provision to impose stricter work requirements on recipients of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, better known as food stamps or SNAP. The farm bill was expected to pass on a strict party-line vote until 30 Republicans rebelled and voted with the entire Democratic caucus in voting it down. For Democratic opponents, SNAP was the sticking point. After the bill failed, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., denounced the bill "cruel," "destructive" and "heartless," and

No injuries have been reported, and firefighters for a time decided to stay back and allow the facility to burn. Authorities don´t know what caused the fire.

In doing so they also continue to ignore President Trump’s many accomplishments. When compared to Obama [and most presidents], President Trump’s efforts to shore up the economy are historic.

The Democratic former U.S. president did not name his Republican successor, Donald Trump, but the speech was among the most pointed comments he has made about politics since leaving office in January 2017.
