Outrage: Federal judge blocks Trump immigration order over power Congress explicitly gave presidents

(TNS) The White House blasted another federal judge on Tuesday after he ordered a halt to a new immigration-related policy that puts American taxpayers first.

U.S. District Court Judge Michael Simon issued an injunction against a new Trump administration policy requiring legal immigrants prove they can afford and obtain health insurance upon entry to the United States:



A federal judge in Oregon has issued a nationwide preliminary injunction against a Trump administration rule that would have banned immigrants from entering the United States if they couldn’t afford health care. 

The rule, issued in early October, would have required immigrants to show proof of health insurance or the ability to pay for their medical care before obtaining a visa. The administration had argued the rule was necessary to prevent costs associated with uninsured immigrants being “passed on to the American people” through higher taxes, premiums and medical fees.  

In his ruling, U.S. District Court Judge Michael Simon said he was not deciding whether or not such a rule was “good public policy,” but rather which branch of government had the right to make such a policy. 

That right, he wrote, belongs to Congress, which has the power to establish rules surrounding naturalization.



The administration blasted Simon, who, of course, was appointed to the reliably Left-wing 9th Circuit by reliably Left-wing Barack Obama, because Congress has already given authority to presidents to do what Trump did.

“Yesterday, a single district court in Oregon has decided immigration policy for the Nation. Congress plainly provided the President with broad authority to impose additional restrictions or limitations on the entry of aliens into the United States,” White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham released in a statement.

“The relevant portion of the Immigration and Nationality Act provides: ‘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.’

“In a landmark decision last year, the Supreme Court recognized the President’s broad authority to so impose such restrictions. That broad authority formed the foundation of this most recent proclamation that was designed to protect the United States from the detrimental effects of uninsured immigrants,” she continued.

“The district court’s decision enjoining the proclamation disregards the statute’s text, in violation of the Supreme Court’s decision. We look forward to defending the President’s lawful action.”

So do we. But at some point there has to be recourse against federal judges who are obviously and purposefully violating the spirit and letter of the law simply because they don’t agree with a president’s policy.

In fact, there is a law that allows persons to initiate actions and reviews of a federal judge’s behavior. It’s time to use it.

Meh…this is the game. Trump does something legal and in the interest of the US and some Obama moron throws a hissy fit and blocks it. Then it goes to a real court with a real judge (one who enforces laws instead of trying to legislate them himself) and then the moron gets reversed. You think they’d just play by the rules and uphold the law. Sad. Good thing Obama left so many seats for Trump to fill! Make the future look brighter! And the good guys will win in the end. Trump will get immigration straightened out by the… Read more »

Barr basically told the judge to pound sand, as ruling is unconstitutional.
