When political agendas get inserted into court decisions, it usually makes for some very bad results. Especially when that political agenda is aimed at impeding President Trump from implementing his promised changes to the immigration policy. Policies which are basically nothing more than enforcing laws already on the books.
Radical judges have a way of making things complicated, because it is assumed that a judge can prevent a law from being enforced by simply making a ruling to that effect. However, the Founding Fathers never intended for the judicial branch to have that kind of power.
So what do you do when the judicial branch attempts to legislate? You call in the legislative branch, and they will push legislation to stop them. In this case, it’s a matter of dividing up court territory and creating a new circuit district!
From The Political Insider:
Even though some legal scholars say President Trump is within his constitutional boundaries to restrict travel from different countries, the liberal court has been known to inject their political agenda into many court rulings, which often get reversed by the Supreme Court.
Now, two Republican senators, Jeff Flake and John McCain of Arizona, have introduced legislation to “carve six states out of the San Francisco-based court circuit and create a brand new 12th Circuit.”
Via FOX News:
They argue that the 9th is too big, too liberal and too slow resolving cases. If they succeed, only California, Oregon, Hawaii and two island districts would remain in the 9th’s judicial fiefdom. Right now, Flake said, the circuit is far too sprawling.
“It represents 20 percent of the population — and 40 percent of the land mass is in that jurisdiction. It’s just too big,” Flake told Fox News on Wednesday. “We have a bedrock principle of swift justice and if you live in Arizona or anywhere in the 9th Circuit, you just don’t have it.” Flake says it typically takes the court 15 months to hand down a decision. “It’s far too long,” he added.
Conservatives have mocked the 9th Circuit for years, often calling it the “Nutty 9th” or the “9th Circus,” in part because so many of its rulings have been overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court.
The court has a reputation as one of the most liberal in the country, in large part because of its makeup. Eighteen of the court’s 25 active judges have been appointed by Democrats. Former President George W. Bush appointed six justices, while former President Barack Obama appointed seven.
Basically, the Ninth Circuit Court is made of radical leftist judges who see it as their duty to enforce their own agendas, rather than staying within the boundaries of the law as it was written by legislators, as well as the Constitution.
So, not only does this circuit court need to be broken up, but we also need to sweep the judicial branch of any judge who refuses to abide by the laws as they are written in the Constitution. Anything else is unacceptable.
That is the only way that we will have justice in America!
