Lone judges’ rulings already have halted president’s plans 40 times…
William Barr hasn’t pulled many punches as attorney general. He bluntly told Congress the Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign. And he confirmed special counsel Robert Mueller’s conclusions that there was no Trump collusion with Russia.
Now he’s taken on a new fight: that of lone judges sitting on district court benches who want to control the national policy set by the president and his administration.
It’s already happened dozens of times to President Trump, delaying his efforts to restrict terrorists’ access to the U.S., deport illegal aliens and more.
The Washington Examiner reports Barr wrote a commentary in the Wall Street Journal that takes his arguments to the people.
The nationwide rulings by lone judges “create an unfair, one-way system in which the democratically accountable government must fend off case after case to put its policy into effect, while those challenging the policy need only find a single sympathetic judge.”
