We'll See You in Court
The U.S. Justice Department, now led by recently confirmed Attorney General Jeff Sessions, announced in a statement released yesterday afternoon that they will continue to endorse and defend President Trump’s controversial executive order. In a ruling last Thursday, Feb. 10, a three-judge 9th Circuit panel unanimously declined to reinstate the executive order that was originally shot down by U.S. Federal District Judge James Robart of Washington on Friday, Feb. 3rd. The recent series of legal setbacks prompted President Trump to tweet, "SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!" It is still unknown whether the Justice Department will file an emergency application in the Supreme Court in another effort to reinstate the executive order. One thing is clear: this battle is far from over.
