Justice Department Appeals Maryland Judge’s Decision to Block Trump Travel Ban

Written by  Wall Street Journal

WASHINGTON—The Justice Department formally appealed a Maryland judge’s decision this week that blocked the implementation of President Donald Trump’s revised executive order barring U.S. entry for people from six Muslim-majority countries.

The appeal on Friday kicks off a new phase in litigation over whether Mr.

Trump’s latest travel restrictions improperly target people based on their religion. The president says the restrictions are necessary to protect the country from terrorism.

Judges in Hawaii and Maryland, in rulings issued only hours apart this week, said Mr. Trump appeared to have been motivated by improper religious animus.

Among other things, the judges cited past statements in which Mr. Trump as a presidential candidate voiced support for a “Muslim ban.”

"Judges in Hawaii and Maryland, in rulings issued only hours apart this week, said Mr. Trump appeared to have been motivated by improper religious animus."
In other words their objections to the order itself has nothing to do with the order itself, they just don't like Trump. This is sad beyond my ability to be sad.

Since when do judicial activist Bolshevik Judges who violate the law and make up law have authority to usurp the Presidents constitutional duty to keep America safe from the Islamic, Barbarian, Pedophile, enslaver and mutilator of women.??

I always thought the President was higher than a plain fed. judge; they are not the Supreme Court judges and he was in his CONSTITUTIONAL rights to do this JUST LIKE CARTER, CLINTON, BUSH AND OBAMA did. Those judges should be punished. They would never had done that to Obama. This is OUR president and he's protecting us. Maybe those judges are in sanctuary cities....against the law. maybe they have to be investigated. No fed. aide to those towns and states.

If you always did think that the president is "above the judicial system" you were simply mistaking; that is why we have the "separation of powers", so the Judicial Branch (judges and the Supreme Court) and the Administrative Branch (the president and his administration), can act separetely and bring the "checks and balances" of our system. I am sure that you have heard before that "No one is above the law". Often times we see presidents as dictators, base on our own beliefs of our democratic system and sometimes we see judges as "bad arbitrators" who side with one political party or the other. The truth is, Judges must issue their judicial orders in accordance of the law (whether we like the outcome or not, (if we do not understand how that works is inmaterial just as the the other term that says tha "ignorance of the law is NOT an excuse to brake it" which I am almost sure that you have heard that being said al least once during your life time). The President of the United States make appointments for judges of the Supreme Court; yet, he cannot fire them like ha can fire heads of agencies he appoints as well and I could go on, but it will get more complicated as I go on. Read the US Constitution and, by the way, Hillsdale College offers the course (studying the Constitution and how it works) for free online. Take your time and study it; it will be worth your time and will give you a better uncderstanding on how things happen in our political system. Thank you for reading and I hope it will help you a bit to get rid of your frustation.

I always wondered what a dictatorship would look like in America...??? Now I know...the a**holes in the black robes receive a credit card that never sends a bill...and they just make crap up when ever their John's tell them to...WOW!

A judges job is to follow the law and decide if the order is constitutional, not to make a decision on what someone said months ago. These judges are over stepping their authority,

They most certainly are Linda....but don't hold your breath, that they will be removed from their bench!

Impeach both judges for not having the authority to do this. If they did this should be taken away.

How much responsibility will these idiot judges have to take when radical Muslims sneak in and cause havoc and damage to our country? President Trump is trying his best to keep the country safe. These idiot judges are making political statements.

These judges should definitely be held accountable: if any terrorist who made it in the US thanks to their obstructionism ends up killing Americans, they should be sued for facilitating the deed. Liberal judges have the unpleasant habit of putting themselves above the law while claiming to implement it, and they should remain untouchable? I don't think so.

Sadly they will suffer no consequences...we will just have dead American's...just like the sanctuary city problem!

These judges are going to gave to be impeached.. It is so blatantly true that trump can halt this illegal invasion by people from who knows where that impeachments must be carried off..

Is this English? But forget the fact you're an illiterate fool, judges are not subject to impeachment. But thanks for playing, we have some lovely parting gifts for you!

Obama did whatever he wanted and not much of anything was said or done to stop any of his outrageous executive orders or any of the sneaky things he did. Allowing boys to use girls restrooms because they don't know if they are a boy or a girl? Insane and inappropriate. Thank God Trump is a strong leader and can just step over these weak minded, sick liberal antics.
