Hawaii Asks Supreme Court To Reject Trump Administration’s Request On Travel Ban

Attorneys for the state of Hawaii are asking the Supreme Court to not get involved in a federal appeals court ruling against President Trump’s modified travel ban, after the administration requested that the high court intervene in the case.

Hawaii’s attorneys wrote that Trump’s team wants the Supreme Court to “engage in its own factbound review of the refugee-resettlment process” with “mere weeks before hearing this [travel ban] case on the merits” next month.

“That is not this Court’s role,” Hawaii’s attorneys wrote. “The lower courts, not this Court, are ‘best qualified to deal with the flinty, intractable realities of day-to-day implementation of’ the Court’s ‘constitutional commands.’ … And contrary to the Government’s hyperbole, they have not rendered the stay ‘functionally inoperative’: The Government retains the authority to bar tens of thousands of refugees from entering the country, as indeed it has done for months.”

After the Trump administration asked the Supreme Court to stop a 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling against the government’s interpretation of the modified travel ban, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy issued an order on Monday temporarily halting the lower court’s decision.

    “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely”. This court has had it’s way for far too long, thus proving the adage. They appear to feel they are ABOVE the USSC. My reading to the Constitution says the opposite, but then again I didn’t go to law school.

    It’s about damn time that the Supreme Court put the 9th Circuit on notice again. I just wish they would realize that the Supreme Court overturns their ruling more than any court in the country. I just wish that President Trump would fire them all and start all over again, but sadly those justices are there for a lifetime.

    Wonder if any of these so called Attorneys in Hawaii have ever read the Constitution.
    It is so sad that we being ruled by rogue judges and not by the Constitution. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f401eafec615960c44af70003330ba103d61fdffb93067283dc33296d5cc806b.jpg

    Hawaii is asking the Supreme Court to take from Trump the powers he has on the books, that have been used by other presidents, Jimmy Carter deported all Iranian students from America and suspended all travel from Iran, Obama stopped Iraqi immigration for 6 months.

    Hawaii is asking the Supreme Court to go against the POTUS and become the Supreme Law of the land? Get out you insipid bunch of coconuts and macaroons, my suggestion is to send every single refugee in America the mainland to the islands all of them, of Hawaii. But wait, big CEO’s and people like Zuckerberg own islands there, oh well surely they wouldn’t object to giving some of their billions to these lovable, fuzzy muzzie.

      I was thinking that if Kim what’s his name wanted to drop a bomb someplace, Hawaii might be the place. Problem solved. Yes, I know that sounds unkind, Tiger.

      1. Tiger says:

        Nope Gvette you said what millions of us thinking and California might be another spot.
