Judge Backs Down on Travel Ban

President Donald Trump obtained a partial victory Monday in his mission to protect Americans from potential acts of terror when the federal judge in Hawaii who issued an injunction against his revised travel ban three months ago backed down and reversed some (though not all) of his original ruling.

U.S. District Court Judge Derrick Watson, a prior Harvard law school classmate of former President President Barack Obama, specifically nullified the parts of the injunction “that barred the administration from conducting internal reviews of other countries’ vetting procedures,” according to CNN.

However, Watson didn’t necessarily perform this reversal because he experienced a change of heart but rather because he was prodded by a lower court.

When a three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld his injunction last week, the justices added a complaint about how Watson’s ruling “was not narrowly tailored to addressing only the harms alleged.”

“For example, internal determinations regarding the necessary information for visa application adjudications do not have an obvious relationship to the constitutional rights at stake or statutory conflicts at issue here,” the justices wrote. “Plaintiffs have not shown how the government’s internal review of its vetting procedures will harm them.”

This criticism presumably prompted Watson to issue his modification. But while his unexpected reversal represented a “narrow, but significant victory for the government,” as noted by CNN legal analyst Steve Vladeck, a professor of law at the University of Texas School of Law, there was a glaring caveat.

    Since Obama appointed 200+ ultra-liberal judges during his 8-year Black Muslim reign, immigration issues need to be removed entirely from review by US courts! Only the US President should have the right to establish immigration policies, and only Congress should have the power to legislate!

    JUDGES are NOT ABOVE THE LAW….NOR are they a “political force” according to OUR U.S. Constitution.
    ANY judge that takes the OATH of OFFICE and then IGNORES or RULES AGAINST the Constitution should be REMOVED from the Bench! OR FIRED by constitutional action.
    Ever since Carter, Judges have taken the OATH, then discredit law OR RULE as LEGISLATORS!!!
    Ginsberg NEEDS to RETIRE!
    Sotomayor and Kagan need to be placed on notice!!!
    Federal Judges that adhere to the globalist/UN LAW need to be recused, then investigated for collusion!
    Can you say, for instance, LA RAZA!!!???
    ANY judge that sits on a “board” or advisory capacity FOR an anti-American organization, needs to be FIRED with all due alacrity!!!

    I do not live in the US but something tells me someone had better check the relationship between this judge and Obama. Sounds to me like Muslim Obama and his cronies are still running the US./
