Activist Judge Who Blocked Travel Ban Busted!!

The US District Judge James L. Robart recently blocked President Trump’s 90 day travel ban by putting as temporary restraining order in place onto a lawsuit that had been put forward by Bob Ferguson that made the argument that the order in question broke constitutional guarantees of equal protection under the law.

This was a rule which nationally is applied. Ferguson said in a press release following the ruling that the Constitution prevailed, because “no one is above the law – even the President.”

Of course Trump had a reply:

As LifeZette reported: U.S. District Court Judge James Robart, who Friday temporarily curtailed President Donald Trump’s refugee executive order, has something of an activist history on the bench.

Robart, who was nominated to his position by former President George W. Bush in 2004, said the phrase “black lives matter” during a court hearing for a case in August 2016 concerning the Seattle Police Departments potential use of excessive force in a racially charged situation. The Obama administration filed the lawsuit after an investigation concluded the SPD “had engaged in a pattern or practice of excessive force” that “could have a disparate impact on minority communities.”

During a court hearing, Robart became “deeply personal,” as the Seattle Times noted, when he pointed to FBI statistics.

“The importance, to me, of this issue is best demonstrated by the news, which was much reported again today,” Robart said with emotion. “According to FBI statistics, police shootings resulting in deaths involve 41 percent black people despite being only 20 percent of the population living in those cities. Forty-one percent of the casualties, 20 percent of the population. Black lives matter.
