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.

Microsoft email privacy case

The Department of Justice is asking the Supreme Court to abandon its case against Microsoft over international data privacy. A new law signed by President Donald Trump last week answers the legal question at the heart of Microsoft´s case, the DOJ says. So the case "is now moot," the department said in a court filing posted Saturday. Microsoft´s legal battle began in 2013, when it refused to hand over emails stored on a server in Ireland to US officials who were investigating drug trafficking. Microsoft argued at the time that sharing data stored abroad could violate international treaties and policies, and there

A Bay Area man facing possible deportation to a country where he’s never lived received some long-awaited help Friday from Gov. Jerry Brown. Daniel Maher, 44, is one of 56 ex-convicts — including five with deportation orders — pardoned by Brown as part of an annual pre-Easter clemency program. Brown also commuted 14 sentences. (snip)Brown’s pardons of those facing deportation won’t guarantee that they will not be removed from the United States, especially as the Trump administration has escalated efforts to deport undocumented immigrants even without criminal backgrounds. But the governor’s action eliminates the legal rationale for doing so.

Washington - Dozens of Democratic U.S. Senators on Wednesday introduced a resolution calling for Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt to resign on allegations of ethics lapses. Those relate to the agency’s purchase of a $43,000 sound booth for his office and spending on travel and security. The resolution was signed by 39 senators in the 100-member Senate, which is controlled by Pruitt’s fellow Republicans. Although Republicans can defeat it, the resolution is symbolically important because it represents the most senators ever to call for a Cabinet member’s ouster in resolution, its sponsors said.
