Dispute over Trump’s executive order
What did Trump say to Biden?
Briar Patch Theater.
More Newsom: We might ban fracking in 2024, too.
Reform, but also law and order
“I’d have to go through a legal process.”
Plus: Trump’s EO is as inevitable as it is un-conservative.
We saw a draft of this last year.
Nothing like the last minute …
That’s gonna be a nope for us
“The Times f**ked this one up.”
“Mr. Trump will use his executive power to take action where Congress has not…”
Monarchial executive overreach.
Winning a battle for a single presidential term
Pence: “We need to fix a broken immigration system.”
He has top men working on it … right now.
“the president is likely to face an immediate legal challenge from immigration activists”
Ryan: House vote tomorrow on bill ending family separation.
Bad when Obama did it. Bad when Trump does it.
“Together, these changes represent a serious threat to Obamacare…”
Better late than never?
Two of these things are not like the others.
Order this, pal
It’s about time
“…we will execute our sworn duty and enforce the law.”
Take the long view.
But not LGBT protections.
“There is nothing the Republican base…hate more than what they view as liberal judges run amok.”
“…the Trump administration’s new order is legal and falls under the president’s power over foreign affairs and national security.”
“…it is no longer likely that plaintiffs can succeed on their claim that the predominate purpose of EO-2 is to discriminate against Muslims”
ACLU vows: We’ll block the new one too.
11-day warning period?
“we will explore lawful pathways for them to remain in the United States”
