5 Problems With The Hawaii Judge Halting Trump’s Travel Ban

A federal judge in Hawaii relied on his feelings and flawed interpretation of Trump’s campaign rhetoric to block his latest travel ban.

Hours before it was to take effect, a federal judge in Hawaii put President Donald Trump’s latest Middle East travel ban on hold. The executive order, which was a loosened version of a previous version struck down by another court, suspends entry to the United States for 90 days from nationals of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. It also suspends the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program for 120 days.

“This is an unprecedented judicial overreach,” Trump said of Judge Derrick Watson’s order, during a rally in Nashville.

    There needs to be a way to remove judges who overstep their jurisdiction and authority. Otherwise we just live in a tyranny of the bench.

      Canada has repeatedly experienced tyranny of the bench since the Trudeau charter. When judicial activists read into the charter what was purposely excluded (sexual orientation for one), it results of non elected judges creating and making law in lieu of Parliament.
