Trump’s agenda is hampered by the disturbing number of lower-court rulings, Barr says

nearvideo-attorney General William Barr reacted to claims that he lied to Congress

California-Republicans-Rep. Devin Nunes, says that the General state attorney William Barr, and the house Republicans to be swayed by these false claims.

Attorney General William Barr said on Tuesday he has noticed a disturbing trend, the nationwide injunctions issued by the lower courts, which have taken their toll on President Trump agenda and threaten the political process for the future government.

To protect Barr, who was accused by Democrats Trump after the release of the Mueller report, said the American Law Institute, to check that there is a new trend in the judiciary “readiness,” Executive action, which injected the courts into the political process.

He pointed to the district court in California, in January 2018 a preliminary injunction to block the Trump administration at the end of the Deferred action for Childhood arrivals, or daca granted.

DACA about 800,000 people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children, or came with families, the overstayed Visa. The program contains hundreds of thousands of college-age students.

U.S. district judge William Alsup said at the time that the lawyers showed to the benefit of DACA is that the immigrants are “more likely to suffer serious, irreparable harm” without the suit. The judge also said the lawyers have a good chance of success at trial.

The White house was quick to criticize what these lower court rulings and called the decision “outrageous.” Vice-President Mike Pence, who recently said, the administration is the question of the Supreme Court bar for you.

“So, what does this Federal government have cast-wide injunction? Dreamers remain in limbo, the political process has come before, and we had over a year of bitter political division, that a government shutdown of unheard-of length,” Barr said.


Barr said nationwide injunctions against the separation of powers. He said that since trump took office, there were 37 Federal-wide injunctions—more than once-a-month-in front of his office, and he said, there is no end is probably in sight. He said in comparison, there were two cases in which district courts issued a restraining order, in the President Obama the first two years.

The Associated Press wrote that this “move to the last example, by Barr, to embrace Trump’s political talking points.” His report pointed out, the Trump criticized these decisions on a rally earlier this month, said, “activist judges, the country wide issue injunctions on the basis of their personal beliefs, which undermine democracy and threaten the rule of law.”

Barr has set aside criticism from Democrats that he is in the presidents pocket. He told The Wall Street Journal in an interview that he defended the presidency, not trump.


“If you destroy the presidency and makes it a errand boy for the Congress, we will have a much weaker and more divided nation,” he said.
