The federal judiciary is one of the core elements of the Deep State, and Federal Judge James’ Robart’s anti-constitutional order suspending President Donald Trump’s Executive Order pausing immigration from seven terrorist hotspots is only the first step in a well thought out plan by the Deep State to conduct what amounts to a coup against the newly-elected Trump government.
And Judge Robart’s order was only the first step in how the coup will be conducted, step two has already been executed.
Understand that the original lawsuit to block President Trump’s Executive Order on travel from terrorism hotspots was filed in Federal Court for the Western District of Washington, which is part of the Ninth Circuit; a hotbed of Far-Left judicial activism that is deeply hostile to the limited government constitutional order created by the Founders of our federal republic.
Early Sunday morning, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals denied the government's emergency request to resume President Trump's travel ban.
The Court of Appeals at that time asked for both sides to file legal briefs before the court makes its final decision on the Friday order by Judge Robart that halted the program.
And the two states, Washington and Minnesota, that were original parties to the lawsuit are now not alone.
Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter and some 97 tech companies filed an amicus brief voicing opposition to President Trump’s executive order on immigration on the grounds that it is discriminatory and has a negative impact on business.
As TechCrunch’s Kate Conger put it:
The amicus brief, which argues that Trump’s immigration order is illegal, highlights the contributions of immigrants to the tech economy while stressing the immigration controls already in place. The companies argue that Trump’s order is discriminatory and will have a negative impact on American businesses. The brief states that Trump’s immigration policies will make it more difficult and expensive for companies to hire new employees from around the world, and will make it more difficult for companies to conduct business because of travel restrictions on their employees. The companies also argue that the discrimination enshrined in the order will trickle down to the companies themselves — if job applicants can’t travel to the United States, companies might be forced to discriminate against them, the brief claims.
The brief describes previous immigration laws that were later overturned, such as the Literacy Act and the Johnson-Reed Act. “The march of time has discredited these laws and policies,” the brief states.
The filing criticizes Trump’s administration for rolling out the ban haphazardly, with little notice to the Department of Homeland Security and other enforcement agencies. It argues that the order is confusing by design and that the confusion caused by it will only grow. The ultimate result, according to the companies, is that skilled workers will no longer seek employment in the United States.
“Skilled individuals will not wish to immigrate to the country if they may be cut off without warning from their spouses, grandparents, relatives, and friends — they will not pull up roots, incur significant economic risk, and subject their family to considerable uncertainty to immigrate to the United States in the face of this instability,” the brief says.
A draft of the amicus filing obtained by TechCrunch stressed the importance of open borders. “The experience and energy of people who come to our country to seek a better life for themselves and their children — to pursue the ‘American Dream’ — are woven throughout the social, political, and economic fabric of the Nation,” the draft stated.
What this means is that the ruling by Robart, who suspended the temporary pause, will remain in place, unless the Supreme Court overturns it.
But, as with most politically charged matters, the Supreme Court is in a 4 to 4 deadlock on immigration.
In February 2015, Judge Andrew S. Hanen of Federal District Court in Brownsville, Tex., entered a preliminary injunction shutting down President Obama’s Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents program while the legal case filed by Texas and other states proceeded. The government appealed, and a divided three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in New Orleans affirmed the injunction.
Meaning Judge Hanen’s order remained in place while the case went forward.
Today, as Democrats in the Senate plan an indefinite filibuster against the nomination to the Supreme Court of 10th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Neil Gorsuch that 4 to 4 deadlock remains in place.
So, all Democrats have to do is keep filibustering Judge Gorsuch to overturn the clear meaning of Articles 1 and 2 of the Constitution, over 200 years of precedent and the laws passed by Congress to keep the door open to millions of potential terrorists – and claim the powers the Constitution grants the President.
This means that for all intents and purposes the President’s powers as Commander in Chief and his executive power to maintain the country’s sovereignty have been seized by 97 globalist technology companies and an unelected judge in the Western District of Washington.
