Skip to comments.9th Circuit Judge Blocks Trump Refugee Policy [semi-satire]
Posted on 11/24/2018 8:50:27 AM PST by John Semmens
US District Judge Jon Steven Tigar in San Francisco blocked the Trump Administration's policy requiring applicants for refugee status to follow established legal procedures. According to Tigar, "the Trump Administration protocol discriminates against the estimated 500 members of the migrant caravan whose criminal records make following established legal procedures impractical. Under the Trump protocol these criminals would be automatically barred from entrytotally negating their chance for integrating themselves into the United States."
Unsurprisingly, the Trump Administration denounced Tigar's ruling, calling it contrary to law and vowing to appeal it to a higher court. "It's just one more example of the outrageous and lawless behavior of the infamous 9th Circuit," President Trump complained. "The numbers speak for themselves. The 9th Circuit has been overruled by the Supreme Court more than any other circuit in the country."
US Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts prematurely injected himself into the controversy by admonishing President Trump's complaint about the 9th Circuit. "The President is unfairly accusing the 9th Circuit of political bias and overlooking the possibility that the judges there are simply incompetent. What Trump is characterizing as bias could be stupidity or ignorance. The frequent overturning of the 9th Circuit by the Supreme Court is, in my opinion, stronger evidence for ignorance of the law and Constitution than it is of political bias, which if intelligently crafted might have a better chance of avoiding reversal. And let's not forget that the 9th Circuit is located in Californiaa state notorious for ill-considered and ignorant public policies enacted and carried out by non-judicial elements of the government. Right now half the state is on fire because Gov. Brown vetoed sensible fire control measures."
Meanwhile, members of the migrant caravan have been complaining about the free tacos and refried beans being given to them, calling it "pig food" and citing this as a reason for rejecting Mexico's offer of asylum. "We want to eat the same steaks wealthy Americans eat," said the complaining refugee. "There's no point in us settling for the same kind of crappy food that was available to us in Guatemala."

Excellence!! This is one of the best ones ever!
Kellyanne Conway’s husband keeps slamming Trump for claiming 9th Circuit Court judges are Barack Obama appointees. US District Judge Jon Steven Tigar is on the 9th Circuit Court. He is a Barack Obama appointee. His decision was that requiring applicants for refugee status to follow established legal procedures discriminates against the estimated 500 members of the migrant caravan whose criminal records make following established legal procedures impractical was unconstitutional. Funny how all the Obama judges on the 9th Circuit Court have these twisted opinions on the Constitution! Kellyanne’s husband is a jackass!
