Gromnir Posted February 13, 2017 Author Share Posted February 13, 2017 I suppose the US civil service is in revolt, heh. it is kinda amusing how trump blasted the courts for allowing dangerous folks to flood into the US after the tro o' o' his travel ban. after all, the process o' being vetted and allowed into the US takes approx. 18 months to two years. so what actual happened were folks in the Executive branch, sympathetic to the plight o' refugees from potential travel-banned nations, took steps to accelerate the process a smidge as they foresaw the possibility o' a more permanent and successful ban looming on the horizon. the courts didn't have any power to process more applications, and they sure as heck didn't increase the rate o' refugees being allowed into the US. it were those beautifully apolitical career bureaucrats working in the executive who took matters into their own hands to do the right thing. folks look at the fed judge and the appellate courts as having delivered a shot across the bow with rulings, but they often miss how it were executive branch bureaucrats who torpedoed trump's efforts and made it possible for all those new refugees to gain access to the american dream in expedited fashion. am wondering if trump learns the hidden lesson from recent events surrounding the travel ban: the President is gonna be needing fight the executive as much as the courts. is actual a pretty common problem for Presidents.
