Apparently, Judge Alsup believes he was elected president. Check the quote I bolded below; it’s a policy decision and has nothing to do with law. This is 9th Circuit judicial activism at its most blatant.
President Donald Trump renewed his Twitter barrage on the Ninth Circuit Wednesday after another district court judge shot down one of his administration’s policies.
On Tuesday night, U.S. District Judge William Alsup of the Northern District of California temporarily blocked the Trump administration’s decision to wind down an Obama-era program that shields children of undocumented immigrants from deportation.The decision drew the president’s ire on Twitter early Wednesday morning.https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/951094078661414912
It’s not the first time Trump has criticized a judge after ruling against one of his policies. Trump took a shot at “unelected” judges after his travel ban was dealt a loss in the Ninth Circuit, and after District Judge William Orrick ruled against his administration’s sanctuary cities policy.
The administration’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, announced Sept. 5, was challenged in federal courts on both coasts by Democratic states’ attorneys general and advocacy groups, who claimed the decision was legally flawed.
In a 49-page opinion issued Tuesday evening, Alsup denied the Trump administration’s bid to dismiss one batch of the lawsuits and granted the plaintiffs’ motion for a preliminary injunction halting the rollback of the program. Alsup found the rollback of the Obama-era program was based on a faulty conclusion that the prior administration had exceeded its statutory and constitutional authority when implementing it.
“DACA covers a class of immigrants whose presence, seemingly all agree, pose the least, if any, threat and allows them to sign up for honest labor on the condition of continued good behavior,” Alsup wrote. “This has become an important program for DACA recipients and their families, for the employers who hire them, for our tax treasuries and for our economy.”
