[Breaking] Liberal 9th Circuit Court will be Dismantled

As judges on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals weigh the legality of President Trump’s immigration executive order, a Republican push to split up the controversial court — and shrink its clout — is gaining steam on Capitol Hill.

Republican Sens. Jeff Flake and John McCain of Arizona introduced legislation last month to carve six states out of the San Francisco-based court circuit and create a brand new 12th Circuit.

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.”

    TIGER – Generally speaking, it is the DUTY of all three branches of the government to PROTECT the individual citizens. Illegal aliens have no rights. The only real interpretation any court should need is the Constitution and the related writings of the Founders. Also, several Federal laws (1940, 1952, one from the 90s – civil code 8008 (?) if I remember correctly. In short, the Federal government is MANDATED to protect our borders and deport illegal aliens! This court is full of ideological loons (as many judges are in this country). We need to find a way in which incompetents CAN be removed from the bench.

    Maybe all the districts should be revised to reflect changes in population and to try to equalize the geographic area covered.

    As vacancies occur I hope President Trump will fill them with jurists in the mold of Justice Antonin Scalia. That would be a good way to get back making judgements based on the written Constitution.
