President Trump has it in for the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and wants them GONE!
The Washington Examiner reported that Trump said Wednesday that he has absolutely considered proposals that would break up the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, after they have stopped 2 of his executive orders.
Trump said when asked if he would get the 9th court disbanded, “Absolutely, I have, there are many people that want to break up the 9th Circuit. It’s outrageous.”
“Everybody immediately runs to the 9th Circuit. And we have a big country. We have lots of other locations. But they immediately run to the 9th Circuit. Because they know that’s like, semi-automatic.”
This comes after his executive order to withhold funds from sanctuary cities, is destined to be reviewed by the Ninth Circuit.
The court is also scheduled to hear the appeal to Trump’s executive order that created a temporary moratorium on refugees from six terrorist-dominated nations until what Trump considers to be proper vetting procedures can be carried out.
The Constitution Center reported that Trump’s comment has backing, as already there is a bill in Congress to break up the Ninth:
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is getting a lot of attention these days in the battle over President Trump’s immigration executive order. But the court soon could be split up into two courts, if some lawmakers have their way. . . .
Shortly after November’s general election, congressional Republicans started working on a bill that would remove six states from the Ninth Circuit to create a new federal judicial district. (A similar bill was stalled in Congress last year.)
The Ninth is currently overwhelmingly liberal, with 18 judges appointed by Democrats to only 7 Republicans.
Trump believes that this puts his policies at a disadvantage in the Circuit which claims that his opponents “judge shopped”.
He claims that opponents of his policies are “judge shopping” in their efforts to find a sympathetic judicial court for their partisan objections.
Trump said, “You see judge shopping, or what’s gone on with these people, they immediately run to the 9th Circuit. It’s got close to an 80 percent reversal period, and what’s going on in the 9th Circuit is a shame.”
Fortunately the Republicans currently have a slight majority on the Supreme Court, as well as a majority in Congress and in the statehouses, so hopefully he can put an end to the lefty 9th Circuit Court!
