DOJ Moves To Appeal Judge’s Ruling On President Trump’s Immigration Order

(CBSDFW.COM/AP) – The Justice Department is asking a federal appeals court to set aside a judge’s order that temporarily blocked President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration.

The federal government’s request for an emergency stay was filed Saturday night with the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

The filing asks the court to lift an order from a day earlier from a judge in Washington state.

The ruling from U.S. District Judge James Robart temporarily halted a Trump administration executive order that suspended America’s refugee program and halted immigration to the U.S. from seven Muslim-majority countries.

The administration on Saturday moved to suspend enforcement of the immigration order as the Justice Department readied its legal challenge.

President Donald Trump has lashed out at Robart on Twitter, calling him a “so-called judge.”

    Democrats all in as traitors…..remember these actions folks when you are called upon to defend your country against domestic traitors……They lost the election but are still trying to steal it. Conversations are over. They, with the help of limo socialists like Soros and Bezos, are incitng riots, assaults, and civil unrest. It’s over kids…..the supreme court need only decide if breaking the laws of our country is illegal….funny huh. that simple. But breaking the law is just technique to a communist activist. ALL YOU NEED IS TO BE READY….ARE YOU READY? You voted them out of the room. They have no seat at the table, so they will burn the house down with you in it. The media will light the fire……GET READY!
