States Cite ‘Chaos’ In President Trump’s Refugee Order

Lawyers for Washington state and Minnesota have told a federal appellate court it would “unleash chaos again” if it lifted an order temporarily halting President Donald Trump’s ban on refugees and travelers from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States.

In briefs filed early Monday morning with the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Washington state and Minnesota said Mr. Trump’s travel ban harmed residents, businesses and universities and was unconstitutional.

The appellate court this weekend denied the Trump administration’s request to immediately set aside a Seattle judge’s ruling that put a hold on the ban nationwide but sought briefs from both Washington state and the federal government. The Justice Department has until Monday afternoon to file its court motion.

Trump’s order a caused confusion for many foreigners trying to reach the United States, prompted nationwide airport protests and led to multiple court challenges.

The federal government has until later today to respond to the state’s briefs.

    THE JUDGE DID THAT, not trump. 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!

  2. The only chaos is the Judges are breaking the law and need to read the constitution.
