From the beginning when a federal judge in Washington State ruled against President Trump’s TEMPORARY ban on immigration from seven Muslim nations, I have encouraged the President to IGNORE the judge and later the appellate judge Robart. Both federal judges overstepped their constitutional authority. They had neither standing nor constitutional authority to interfere with the legal and official duties of a sitting president.
Finally, after an eight-year constitutional ‘drought’, we have leadership in the Justice Department arguing on the right side of the law.
