One thing that seems to go unnoticed about Donald Trump’s presidency is how he is reshaping the federal judiciary.
Aside from getting Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh confirmed to the Supreme Court, Trump has been placing constitutionalists on benches nationwide.
Now, the far-left Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is set for a big league makeover.
It has been a long time coming.
You’d have to figure that Dems are about to lose their collective mind.
Here’s the scoop…
From Fox News:
For the first time in more than three decades, Republican-appointed judges will soon occupy nearly half the seats on the left-leaning 9th Circuit Court of Appeals — dealing a setback to progressive legal advocates who have long seen the court as a safe bet for favorable rulings.
The radical transformation of the San Francisco-based court is largely the result of President Trump’s aggressive push to nominate conservative judges and bypass traditional consultations with Senate Democrats — a practice that has led to repeated howls of protest from California’s two Democratic senators, Kamala Harris and Judiciary Committee ranking member Dianne Feinstein. The 9th Circuit has a sprawling purview over cases arising in nine western states, including California, Hawaii, and Oregon.
Once Trump’s latest picks to the 9th Circuit, including Ken Lee and Dan Collins, are confirmed as expected and remaining vacancies are filled, 13 of the 29 active seats on the key appellate court will be filled with judges picked by Republican presidents. At this time last year, 16 judges on the 9th Circuit were appointed by Democrats, with only six chosen by Republicans.
Alan Feldman, a legal scholar and judicial data guru, noted, “As the 9th Circuit shifts to become more conservative and better parallels the Supreme Court’s ideological baseline, I could only imagine fewer liberal 9th Circuit decisions and fewer overturned 9th Circuit decisions generally.“
45 is doing what he was elected to do. That’s why he’ll be re-elected next year.
You don’t necessarily have to be American to be granted constitutional rights.
Enter the Ninth Circuit, which drove that point home…
From Daily Wire:
On Thursday, a unanimous three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit found that asylum seekers at the U.S.-Mexico border who fail their initial threshold of showing a “credible fear” of persecution in their home countries are entitled to a judicial appeal before they can be deported. The decision could severely undermine the Trump Administration’s efforts at securing the border and expeditiously deporting frivolous would-be aslyees in California and Arizona, which are both border states under the jurisdiction of the Ninth Circuit.
The bottom line is that POTUS Trump is winning.
He’s getting things done for the American people and making it clear that the United States is no longer Obama’s America; that she will no longer be plagued by far-left ideas.
Those days are done.
And the country is already better off because of it.
