The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit upheld most of California’s “sanctuary state” laws on Thursday, dealing another setback to the Trump administration in its effort to challenge the laws. Last March, then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions traveled to California personally to challenge three main “sanctuary state” laws in a federal lawsuit filed in Sacramento. The three laws are: the Inspection and Review of Facilities Housing Federal Detainees law (AB 103); the Immigrant Worker Protection Act (AB 450); and the California Values Act (SB 54). The U.S. Department of Justice sought a preliminary injunction against the enforcement of the laws.In July 2018, a federal district judge upheld AB 103 and SB 54, but blocked enforcement of portions of AB 450 that applied monetary penalties to employers who complied with the federal government’s efforts to inspect workplaces to determine the immigration status of employees.

U s court of appeals for the ninth circuit
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit temporarily stayed a lower court order on Friday that had blocked President Donald Trump’s asylum policy. The stay lasts only until the court can decide the next steps of the latest ongoing legal challenge to the crisis on the Mexican border. To deal with the growing humanitarian crisis on the southern border, President Trump’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) implemented Migrant Protection Protocols, a policy requiring applicants for asylum to stay in Mexico while U.S. immigration courts consider their asylum claims.Immigration law at 8 U.S.C. § 1225(b)(2) authorizes the secretary of DHS to return aliens who crossed the Mexican border back to Mexico while their asylum claims are processed. DHS is using that statutory authority. Left-wing legal groups sued, and a federal district judge in California issued a preliminary injunction blocking the policy nationwide, ordering the federal government to allow those aliens … [Read more...] about Ninth Circuit Court Temporarily Reinstates Trump Asylum Policy

Supported by Fact Check of the Day This claim about the federal appeals court circuit, made by President Trump, a Republican senator and conservative pundits, is false by one metric and true by another. ByLinda Qiu Nov. 26, 2018 What Was Said Well, first of all, it is clearly the case that there are a lot of bad opinions that come out of the Ninth Circuit. That’s why they get turned over at a rate higher than any other circuit in the nation, and it’s legitimate to talk about that. — Senator Ben Sasse, Republican of Nebraska, in an interview on “Fox News Sunday” Justice Roberts can say what he wants, but the 9th Circuit is a complete & total disaster. It is out of control, has a horrible … [Read more...] about Does the Ninth Circuit Have the Highest Reversal Rate in the Country?
POLITICS 11/23/2018 02:23 am ET Conway lays out data tearing holes in web of misinformation about court Trump loves to hate. By Mary Papenfuss Kellyanne Conway’s attorney husband went toe-to-toe with President Donald Trump on Thursday, this time defending the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals even as Trump bashed it again — and again. George Conway, a conservative Republican who would not typically defend rulings of the court criticized for its more liberal leanings, accused Trump of using “misleading’ statistics to attack the 9th Circuit. Trump ripped the court as a “complete and total disaster” in a tweet Thursday, called it a “thorn in our side” in a phone call with service members, and told reporters later that a judge who “knows nothing about it” made a “ridiculous ruling” against his immigrant asylum crackdown. A day earlier he slammed the court because its decisions are … [Read more...] about George Conway Scorches Trump’s ‘Misleading’ Attack On 9th Circuit Court Of Appeals
Juliet Eilperin, The Washington Post Published 9:52 am PDT, Saturday, August 18, 2018 It turns out that unraveling Barack Obama's environmental agenda is harder than it looks. Federal judges have ruled against the Trump administration three times in the last three days, arguing that the administration short-circuited the regulatory process in its push to reverse policies on water protections, chemical plant safety operations and the controversial Keystone XL pipeline. In each instance, the courts either reinstated the existing rule or delayed the administration's proposal from taking effect. On Friday, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the Environmental Protection Agency's move to delay new chemical and safety requirements was "arbitrary and capricious." The day before, a judge on the U.S. District Court in South Carolina reinstated a rule in 26 states limiting the dredging and filling of streams and waterways on the grounds that the EPA had not solicited … [Read more...] about The Trump administration keeps losing environmental court cases
