SESSIONS Goes Back To SUPREME COURT On Defiant HAWAII Judge’s Dictate

watson sessions

Attorney General Jeff Sessions seems to have gotten the message at least when it comes to the travel ban, having now had enough of the game playing of the left and their unabashed obstruction of President Trump’s agenda.

Sessions responded to the latest interference on behalf of the Obama deep state shadow government their operative, planted choom buddy and so-called Hawaii District Court Judge Derrick Watson. Watson dictated to the President, DOJ and DHS how they will interpret the meaning of the word “bona-fide” as it relates to the a personal relationship in the application of the terrorist travel ban executive order.

AG Sessions, rather than going through the pointless process of filing an appeal to the libtards of the Ninth Circuit, Watson and Obama allies, has gone straight to the Supreme Court. On Friday Sessions asked them to block Watson’s dictate that prevents the Trump administration from enforcing the travel ban in the manner in keeping with the Supreme Court ruling and also for some clarification.

In its motion the DOJ stated, “The district court’s interpretation of this Court’s June 26, 2017, stay ruling distorts this Court’s decision and upends the equitable balance this Court struck.” They specifically asked for relief from two flawed aspects of the Waikiki Watson’s “ruling.”

First, “The district court’s categorical holding that the Order may not be applied to any refugee applicant as to whom the Department of State has obtained a contractual commitment from a resettlement agency — which includes every refugee permitted to enter the United States — effectively eviscerates this Court’s ruling partially staying the injunction as to Sections 6(a) and 6(b).”

Second, “the district court’s sweeping interpretation of ‘close familial relationship’ to encompass a wide range of distant relatives — including cousins, uncles, and siblings-in-law — effectively eliminates the ‘close’ requirement and has no basis in this Court’s ruling or the INA.” [Immigration and Naturalization Act]

They also appealed Watson’s Thursday ruling, saying, “Out of an abundance of caution, to ensure that there is no impediment to this Court’s prompt resolution of this issue, the government has also filed today a notice of appeal of the district court’s decision modifying its injunction.”

Sessions noted that it has been following the balanced approach ordered by the Justices but their leftist opposition has chosen to defy the Supreme Court, writing, “respondents pressed further in an effort to strip this Court’s stay of significant practical consequence. The district court [Watson] adopted both of respondents’ arguments, and denied the government’s request for a stay pending this Court’s review. The government therefore is left to seek this Court’s immediate intervention.”

The motion added“First, for aliens abroad who seek admission as refugees, this Court held that the suspension in Section 6(a) of the Order and the annual cap in Section 6(b) ‘may not be enforced against an individual * * * who can credibly claim a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.’”

DOJ went on to explain that since the “refugee” agreements are between the federal government and the refugee agency, and the relationship with the individual occurs after the foreigner actually arrives in the US, it is inapplicable. They also note that since this is the situation for every foreign “refugee” from the affected nations, the government’s ability to deny entry to those foreigners is effectively eliminated by the interpretation of Waikiki Watson as well as the authority of the President usurped.

They also argued that the government’s interpretation of “a close familial relationship” with a U.S. individual is more broad than the waiver provision included in the order, Section 3(c)(iv). Those family members were specified as being “a spouse, child or parent in the United States.” The Trump administration expanded that to include siblings, fiances, parents-in-law and children-in-law.

They write that the Watson interpretation includes grandparents, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and siblings-in-law and argue that it empties the Court’s  decision of meaning, as it encompasses not just “close” family members, but virtually all family members. Treating all of these relationships as “close familial relationship[s]” reads the term “close” out of the Court’s decision.

He also made it clear that Watson removed the Supreme Court from the decision and inserted himself in their place. We’ll see how well that aspect of this Obama tool’s actions sits with the Justices.

    The Ninth Circuit is under the supervision of Anthony Kennedy. Now we will see whose side he is on.

    My understanding of appointed Federal Judges, is that the President can fire everyone of them, then appoint Judges who will follow the Constitution. But, I could be wrong???.

  3. federal judges are NOT APPOINTED FOR LIFE.
    they are to serve UNDER GOOD BEHAVIOR.

  4. Since the people of Hawaii had no vote in this matter, do not want refugees from those countries, the only voice at this point is to remove AG Chin from office with this petition. Anyone is welcome to sign he petition and read how the people feel about this political betrayal.
    Remove Hawaii AG Doug Chin

  5. This guy is an unAmerican pos, in my opinion. What is his reasoning for starting yet another road block? Hussein the Muslim is the reason. Every American out there wants to keep their loved ones and their selves safe. This jackass wants to keep the influx of “refugees” business as usual as if Hussein was still in office. This is what happens when an idiot holds an office he is not meant to hold. I hope the Supreme Court kicks his ass out, if they can…


  7. As we know, the muslims are notorious for their incestual relationships. They marry within their families in order to keep wealth within the family. This practice effectively results in all of them having “close familial” relationships. Under the so called judge’s ruling, there are practically no muslims who would be denied entry under the SCOTUS ruling.

  8. I hope it works, but I really wish they would just ban everyone for at least six months or a year.. Just until we can really see what’s happening in the rest of the world, and figure out how to keep ISIS totally out of the U.S.A. Oh, and build The Wall, too!

    I’ve heard you can remove a Judge by impeaching them. Someone needs to start Impeaching proceedings on this Judge.
