Trump Suffers First His Major Defeat As Judge Blocks Part Of His Muslim Ban

The ACLU sued President Trump and won in court, as a judge has blocked the Trump administration from deporting Muslim immigrants who are currently stranded at US airports.

The judge wrote:

The order from the federal judge blocks the Trump administration from deporting all people stranded in U.S. airports under President Trump’s new Muslim ban.

ACLU Executive Director Anthony D. Romero said, “Clearly the judge understood the possibility for irreparable harm to hundreds of immigrants and lawful visitors to this country. Our courts today worked as they should as bulwarks against government abuse or unconstitutional policies and orders. On week one, Donald Trump suffered his first loss in court.”

The injunction is proof that the system is working and not tolerating President Trump’s overreach with his executive orders. Trump’s Muslim ban is clearly unconstitutional, and if the administration continues to pursue this path, they can count on suffering many more defeats likely up to and including the US Supreme Court.

The president is not a king, as is proven by the judicial reaction to Donald Trump’s illegal Muslim ban.
