The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals will hear the Trump administration’s case today…Note that the Tech companies have filed a brief because they’re freaking out that they won’t be able to hire foreign workers. The H1B Visa program has been notorious for replacing American workers with foreign workers. It’s brutal to American workers because the American worker has to train their foreign replacement! It’s all about cheap labor at the expense of American jobs…
Here are our past reports on this:
This should be a slam dunk by the Trump administration! Americans deserve law and order and President Trump is delivering it with a top notch legal team. The Trump administration’s lawyers demolished any case being made by the opposition to Trump’s EO on refugees.
WASHINGTON STATE AND MINNESOTA – TECH COMPANIES FREAK OUT!
AP: Lawyers for Washington state and Minnesota have told a federal appellate court it would “unleash chaos again” if it lifted an order temporarily halting President Donald Trump’s ban on refugees and travelers from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States.
In briefs filed early Monday morning with the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Washington state and Minnesota said Trump’s travel ban harmed residents, businesses and universities and was unconstitutional.
Dozens of tech companies, including giants like Apple, Google, and Uber, are siding with Washington state as it fights President Donald Trump’s ban on refugees and travelers from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States.
The companies filed briefs late Sunday with a federal appellate court saying the Trump executive order hurts their businesses by making it harder to recruit employees. The companies also said the travel ban would prompt businesses to build operations outside the United States.
Despite the initial 9th circuit denial of the Trump administration’s request to immediately set aside a Seattle judge’s ruling that put a hold on the executive order nationwide, the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals (the most liberal and overturned appellate court in the nation) requested legal briefs from both sides by 6:00 pm EST today / 3:00 pm PST.
BYRON YORK: TRUMP TEAM DEMOLISHES WASHINGTON STATE’S CASE:
Now the government has answered Judge Robart, and unlike the judge, Justice Department lawyers have produced a point-by-point demolition of Washington State’s claims. Indeed, for all except the most partisan, it is likely impossible to read the Washington State lawsuit, plus Robart’s brief comments and writing on the matter, plus the Justice Department’s response, and not come away with the conclusion that the Trump order is on sound legal and constitutional ground.
Beginning with the big picture, the Justice Department argued that Robart’s restraining order violates the separation of powers, encroaches on the president’s constitutional and legal authority in the areas of foreign affairs, national security, and immigration, and “second-guesses the president’s national security judgment” about risks faced by the United States.
