Sessions criticizes federal judges for slowing Trump's national agenda. By BRENT D. GRIFFITHS

NOTE: You might be glad that liberal judges are doing this to Trump, but how will you feel if they get away with it and the Trump-appointed conservative judges do it to future Democratic presidents?

Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Saturday railed against federal judges for impeding President Donald Trump's national agenda, telling students at a conservative gathering that a handful of judges are making themselves "super legislators" by authoring sweeping decisions in the heat of legal fights.


"In truth, this is a question of raw power ó of who gets to decide the policy questions facing America: our elected representatives, our elected president or unelected lifetime-appointed federal judges," Sessions told the Federalist Society's 2018 National Student Symposium at the Georgetown University Law Center in Washington.

On topics like Trump's proposed travel ban and the ending of an Obama-era
immigration program, Sessions complained that a single federal judge is ableto issue a nationwide ruling that stops the administration in its tracks. Knownas a nationwide injunction, such a ruling applies beyond the particular peopleinvolved in a case and remains in force even when another federal court sideswith the administration. Such a split occurred this past week when a federaljudge in Maryland upheld Trump's decision to end Deferred Action forChildhood Arrivals, but because of an earlier injunction from federal judgesin California and New York, parts of the program remain in place.

    For a different perspective from Nolan's conclusion above, see my March 10 ilw.com comment dealing with the danger to America's democracy posed by the Trump/Sessions strategy of trying to de-legitimize judges who stand up against Trump's white supremacist immigration agenda:

    And for more details on California's resistance to Trump's authoritarian attempts to conduct ethnic cleansing against non-white immigrants by expelling as many as possible, see the following link to a Washington Post March 7 report:

    For my latest comment about another lawsuit dealing with a different, but not unrelated, aspect of how Trump's white supremacist immigration "enforcement" policies are leading the United States closer toward dictatorship, see my March 12 ilw.com post about the ACLU's lawsuit against the Trump administration's inhuman policy of separating asylum-seeking parents in detention from their young children by holding the children in facilities that are hundreds, or in one case, two thousand miles, away from the parent:

    In the latest news, an ICE official in San Francisco has just resigned over alleged pressure from Sessions and ICE director Homan to lie about the effects of California's Sanctuary policies.
