Jeff Sessions slams ‘activist’ judges for ruling against Trump

Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Thursday blasted federal judges for making decisions against President Trump’s executive orders, and said those rulings represent a unacceptable level of interference.

“This is especially problematic when district courts take the dramatic step of issuing activist nationwide injunctions — orders that block the entire United States government from enforcing a statute or a presidential policy nationwide,” Sessions said in remarks to the Heritage Foundation. He was referring to rulings against Trump’s travel ban executive order, and nationwide injunctions issued by Washington, Maryland and Hawaii courts.

Sessions said he feels “strongly” about judges acting strictly “because of a political agreement.”

“Today, more and more judges are issuing nationwide injunctions and in effect single judges … are making themselves super-legislators for the entire United States,” he said. “A single judge’s decision that can enjoin the entire federal government from acting is an extreme step, and too often, district court judges are doing it without following the law.”

    Maybe if Mr. Sessions would teach our president about the constitution and how to write a legal EO we wouldn’t have this problem. Trump still believes he was elected King.

      If you believe President Trump wrote to EO himself, you are not too bright. You might say which countries are on the list but the written EO is done by legal beagles who may not be very bright to begin with. After all they are “lawyers”

      Here you go again. Ever take a look to see just how many people agree with you? You just keep getting up on the wrong side of the bed. I’m pretty sure President Trump understands the Constitution, much better than you. You’re an ass hole!

      You’ll notice that these judges did not interfere with emperor Obamanation’s orders nearly as much. We have far too many activist liberal lunatic judges out there.
