Federal Court Rulings on President Trump’s EO – SCOTUS here it comes

Late Friday afternoon, a Seattle Judge and George W Bush appointee, put out a nationwide restraining order stopping further use of the President Trump Executive Order on Illegal Immigration. From the local Fox affiliate.

The hearing came about after the Attorneys General of Washington and Minnesota filed a lawsuit seeking to halt President Donald Trump’s Jan. 27 executive order restricting immigration to the United States from seven Muslim-majority countries. It also placed restrictions on refugees entering the country.

U.S. District Court Judge James L. Robart, a Seattle native who is an appointee of President George W. Bush, said the state proved that local economy and citizens have suffered irreparable harm and an injunction should be applied.

Meanwhile, earlier in the day, a Federal Court Judge in Mass had a different viewpoint and declined to renew a TRO on the Executive Order. From CBS news:

A federal judge in Boston has refused to extend a temporary injunction against President Donald Trump’s travel ban.

U.S. District Judge Nathaniel Gorton late Friday declined to renew an order prohibiting the detention or removal of persons as part of Trump’s executive order on refugees and immigrants.
