Federal Judge Pauses Donald Trump's Travel Ban Executive Order

Donald Trump‘s temporary travel ban has been put on pause by a federal judge.

Just a week after the 70-year-old president signed the controversial Executive Order limiting travel from seven countries, a judge in Seattle has issued a temporary restraining order on the ban.

The ruling came at a hearing on Friday (February 3) during which Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson went up against federal lawyers after filing an amended complaint to stop the order.

β€œThe Constitution prevailed today. No one is above the law β€” not even the president,” the Attorney General said in a statement.

    Nope. If Obama did it, shame on him too…peaches.

  • Lawrence Rainbow

    That’s liberal media for you lol.

    HAAAAAA!! SUCKIT you racist republican pieces of SHIT!!

  • Joy

    You’re delusional. Suckit, racist. There are some smart and kind people in your country, and they are putting a STOP to him because the ban was UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

  • GroundControl500

    Because President Obama did not do what you have been tricked into believing. And Press Obama was always smart enough and respectful enough of the Constitution to have his lawyers carefully review his Executive Orders.

  • GroundControl500

    Again, for the learning impaired: Obama never “did it” okie dokie. Sorry you have no idea what you’re talking about.

  • Sammy

    I’m okay with that as long as they all stay in Seattle, The state of Washington can pay for all of them as well.

    Section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act states: “Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”

    Carter, Obama and Reagan used he same law. This temporary hold will just let terrorists in, and prolong the refugee ban.

    2011 Obama did it. six month stay on Iran visas. He used the same law.

  • GroundControl500

    Wrong again. First, Obama’s only affected refugees unlike Trump’s which affected green card holders.

    And perhaps most importantly, Obama’s did not stop or stay or ban any group. It also did not stop the process of accepting applications for immigration or any future applicatipns. Obama’s simply added additonal vetting measures which did slow the process for a period of time.

    In other words, as usual the Trump administration is LYING when it tries to compare Trump’s EO with Obama’s EO. Why is the truth so hard to grasp for Trumpers?

  • GroundControl500

    It still must be done in a legal and constitutional manner.

    All those entering the country now have been strenuously vetted for years by a number of U.S. agencies. That is why they have already been granted the right to enter the country.

    Your ignorance of the law and failure to understand how a government functions should earn you a job in the Trump regime.

    You are reported for deleting anti Trump comments and I have send them all your accounts you used to upvote pro Trump comments, if they take action against you, it’s your own fault.

    Edit

    And it doesn’t matter you deleted your accounts after reading and deleting my comments, the Internet never forgets and Disqus & co know you (IP address etc).

    Get this senial meathead out of office already.

    Reposting for the Trumpers spreading more alternative facts aka LIES. Trying to get the truth deleted isn’t going to work here, Boris.

    The comparison utterly fails because President Obama did not do what you have been tricked into believing he did. And President Obama was always smart enough and respectful enough of the Constitution to have his lawyers carefully review his Executive Orders.

    First, Obama’s order only affected refugees unlike Trump’s order which affected green card holders (LPRs).

    And perhaps most importantly, Obama’s did not stop or stay or ban any group. It also did not stop the process of accepting applications for immigration or any future applicatipns. Obama’s simply added additonal vetting measures which did slow the process for a period of time.

    Carmen, stop listening to the lies of posters like Curt. He doesn’t know what he’s talking about. He’s just parroting lies he’s been fed and is too stupid to understand.

  • Deadly Dancer

    Impeach.

  • toastie postie

    Too bad we have to suffer for the stupidity of those that voted this evil clown in. Did they know Bannon was going to be the one pulling this Orange buffoon’s strings, along with Putin? They will suffer, but why should we? 😑

  • Joy

    Damn well said.
