President Trump: ‘The Ninth Circuit — We’re Going To Have To Look At That’

Published

The liberal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that President Donald J. Trump is not allowed to restrict asylum seekers from entering the country, a move which prompted the President to blast the court.

“The Ninth Circuit — we’re going to have to look at that,” Trump said to a gaggle of reporters. He called the court’s overwhelmingly liberal makeup a “disgrace.”

The court issued a temporary restraining order blocking a Nov. 9 proclamation made by Trump in an effort to restrict the number of asylum seekers who crossed the border illegally. The judge who decided the case was Jon S. Tigar, an Obama appointee, according to multiple reports. Trump issued the proclamation in response to the caravan of migrants careening towards the Southern border, which have arrived near Tijuana, Mexico in waves over the past week.

“The request was made by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Center for Constitutional Rights, which quickly sued after President Trump issued the ban this month in response to the caravans of migrants that have started to arrive at the U.S.-Mexico border,” according to Fox News.

Once again, America’s court system – or at least the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals – has taken a special interest in those who arrive at America’s border illegally. The same court ruled against Trump’s ban on travel from several majority-Muslim countries in December, a decision that was ultimately overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court.

According to Fox, border officials are processing 100 asylum claims per day. There are reportedly 3,000 asylum-seekers already on the waiting list, and 70,000 asylum claims processed each year.

“During a conference call with reporters Monday afternoon, homeland security officials said ‘most of the caravan members are not women and children’ and that more than 500 criminals are traveling with the group that has amassed on the other side of a San Diego border crossing,” the report said.

President Trump Rules Out Deploying Troops to Restore Order, Even as Riots Show No Signs of Slowing Down

Trump has opted to not show strength in the face of this crisis.

Just one day after President Donald Trump said he was willing to send military forces into states across the country to put down riots, he is reportedly backing off of the idea.

According to administration officials, Trump is happy with the result of yesterday’s enforcement measures during the riots – which included law enforcement officials being shot and police getting hit by SUVs. He will not be using the Insurrection Act to put troops on the streets to restore order anytime soon.

“The law is absolutely still on the table if things get really bad, but as of now he doesn’t think it’s going to have to go that far,” an administration official said to Axios.

“As President Trump has said, we cannot allow the voices of peaceful protesters to be drowned out by angry mobs, which is why the President will continue to take lawful, decisive action to stop the violence and restore the security of all Americans,” White House spokesman Judd Deere said.

Trump made the pivot after RINO Republicans whined about his harsh rhetoric as the country burns due to extreme left-wing riots.

“I don’t think the Pentagon’s keen on getting brought into this unless they absolutely have to. We need to restore order, but using active duty military troops in circumstances like this is a fairly rare occurrence,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said on Tuesday.

“I would prefer that these things be handled by the state and local authorities,” Sen. John Thune (R-SD) said. “You want to de-escalate, rather than escalate.”

Yesterday, Trump declared that he would show zero tolerance for any more rioting and looting in the streets:

President Donald Trump announced tonight that he will deploy military force in cities that are gripped by riots if blue-state governors do not get their acts in order and do so soon.

“My first and highest duty as president is to defend our great country and the American people,” Trump said in his speech. “I swore an oath to uphold the laws of our nation and that is exactly what I will do.”

Trump made it clear that he is an “ally of all peaceful protesters” who are protesting about injustices committed against George Floyd, who died during a police encounter with former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin. However, Trump will not allow the rioters to disgrace Floyd’s memory with their looting and wanton property destruction.

Trump announced that he would deploy “thousands and thousands of heavily armed soldiers, military personnel and law enforcement officers” in order to restore order in American cities. These forces could be deployed as soon as tonight considering how blue-state governors have done so poorly at keeping their states safe.

Earlier in the day, Trump had criticized governors throughout the country for their “weak” response to the growing violence.

President Trump has backed off at least temporarily from his boasts, showing yet again that his bark is much worse than his bite.
