Trump Loses Again

A federal appeals court dealt another blow to President* Donald Trump's revised travel ban targeting six-Muslim majority countries on Thursday, siding with groups that say the policy illegally targets Muslims.

The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court ruling that blocks the Republican's administration from temporarily suspending new visas for people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
Oh, Trump can appeal, but the Supremes don't have to take the case. And if the 9th Circuit also upholds the order in Hawaii which black the ban, then there is no dispute among the circuits.

My recollection is that the 4th Circuit isn't known for being a liberal one, but no doubt the Right will start screaming that it is. They'll also be bleating about "judicial activism," which is code for "when the courts don't agree with me."

And once again, leftist activist judges weaken and endanger the country.

And fools cheer their action.

Has anyone ever explained how this is illegal and Obama's ban wasn't?

I'd really like to know.

Hahahaha. B, did you even read the last line before typing your response? If so, I give you credit for blithely stating your viewpoint without even pausing to address previous arguments against it. Definitely not a winning move, but it does take a certain tenacity to hold strong to one's viewpoints regardless of any evidence and arguments to the contrary.

Otherwise your comment reads more like the "straight man" from a comedy duo of old.

B: What weakened and endangered the country was the verbal malfunctions perpetrated by president four-year-old at NATO.
