Why is Congress trying to weaken the Presidency? Barr Says Trump's Presidency's Agendas Are Being Hampered by Lower Court Rulings Source: Trump's agenda hampered by troubling number of lower court injunctions, Barr says Attorney General William Barr on Tuesday said he has noticed a troubling trend of nationwide injunctions issued by lower courts that have taken their toll on President Trump’s agenda and threaten the political process for future administrations.Barr, who has been accused by Democrats of protecting Trump after the release of the Mueller report, told the American Law Institute that there is a new trend of judicial "willingness" to review executive action, which injects courts into the political process. He pointed to the district court in California that in January 2018 issued a temporary injunction to block the Trump administration from ending Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. DACA has protected about 800,000 people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children or came with families who overstayed visas. The Obama-era program includes hundreds of thousands of college-age students. U. S. District Judge William Alsup said at the time that lawyers in favor of Daca demonstrated that the immigrants "were likely to suffer serious, irreparable harm" without court action. The judge also said the lawyers have a strong chance of succeeding at trial. The White House was swift to criticize these lower court injunctions and called this particular decision "outrageous." USVP Mike Pence recently said the administration will ask the Supreme Court to bar them. "So what have these nationwide injunctions wrought? Dreamers remain in limbo the political process has been pre-empted, and we have had over a year of bitter political division that included a government shutdown of unprecedented length," Barr said. Barr said nationwide injunctions violate the separation of powers. He said that since Trump took office, there have been 37 nationwide injunctions - more than one a month - against his office and he said there is likely no end in sight. He said by comparison, there were two instances where district courts issued an injunction in President Obama's first two years. The Associated Press wrote that this is "the latest example of Barr moving to embrace Trump's political talking points." Its report pointed out that Trump criticized these rulings at a rally earlier this month saying "activist judges who issue nationwide injunctions on their personal beliefs, undermine democracy and threaten the rule of law." Barr has brushed aside criticism from Democrats that he is in the President's pocket. He told the Wall Street Journal that he is defending the presidency, not Trump. "If you destroy the presidency and make it an errand boy for Congress, we're going to be a much weaker and more divided nation," he said. AP contributed to this report. What do you think about Congress weakening the Presidency? How can we stop this impingement upon the Separation of Powers? Right now, many of us are wondering what further tricks Nancy Pelosi and her Congressional minions, hungry for her endowment of funding for their campaigns, will be using stolen FBI documents to twist the arm of more Obama-appointed lower court bleatings. I hold the Democrats responsible for taking President Trump away from his responsibilities to hold governments like North Korea from vaporizing San Francisco, Seattle, and Portland Oregon with atomic weaponry China has funneled to him sans information what he actually does to the United States may be done to him. Congress, get the hell off President Trump's restoration of America's refined leadership in the world that has attracted jealousy and hatred from governments with a history of eating their own people with starvation, with sarin gas, and other means of genocide.
