5 States have decided to sue the Trump Administration regarding the newly modified executive order on immigration. Judge Robart, the justice who applied the halt to the original order is refusing for now to halt the latest order. He is requiring more information Marion from the states filing suit.
A U.S. federal court refused to apply the emergency restraining order from President Trump’s immigration executive order to his newly modified travel ban.
Seattle U.S. District Court Judge James Robart, who issued the temporary restraining order against Trump’s initial order last month, refused a request on Friday to apply that order to the revised policy according to Reuters.
Robart, appointed in 2003 by former President George W. Bush, said lawyers from the states that opposed the order need to file more extensive court papers.
This is just a temporary stay as Judge Robert is almost certain to mimic his last ruling. This is an activist judge that has evidence of being a bit of an activist with immigrants.
Hopefully the new order will stand up to any judicial criticism or it arrives to the Supreme Court after Judge Gorsuch is confirmed by the Senate. Either way, get ready for more judicial drama.
