The Hawaii Federal Judge who put a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) on President Trump’s Travel Restriction Policy has just gone all-in and indefinitely barred the enforcement of it. In a sign that this is likely a political witch-hunt, the travel restriction order had already been drafted a second time to deal with issues that the first judge had raised. Many are beginning to see this as the Judiciary trying to curtail the will of the American people.
According to the Daily Caller:
The court remained unconvinced of the government’s arguments, and reiterated assertions made in its original order of Mar. 15. Watson explained he believed Trump’s order could violate the First Amendment’s establishment clause, as comments made during the general election campaign by Trump and his surrogates could leave much of the country with the impression the order’s intent is to disparage Islam
“Where the ‘historical context and ‘the specific sequence of events leading up to” the adoption of the challenged Executive Order are as full of religious animus, invective, and obvious pretext as is the record here, it is no wonder that the Government urges the Court to altogether ignore that history and context,” Watson wrote. “The Court, however, declines to do so. The Court will not crawl into a corner, pull the shutters closed, and pretend it has not seen what it has seen.”
The people voted for Trump based on his words, the very words the Judges are citing to stop his orders, so the judges are clearly at odds with the people.
