[Ed.: Say what you want about President Trump, but we’re pretty sure that “capitulation” isn’t exactly in his vocabulary.]
State Attorney General Bob Ferguson brought Washington’s suit with Minnesota against the president over the immigration order, leading a federal judge to put a temporary block on the order on Feb. 4, a ruling that was upheld last week by a federal appeals court.
[Ed.: We think it may be you AG Ferguson that has got problems with your “reading” of the law and Constitution. Great distinctions have been established by precedence between US citizens and foreign nationals. We still want to know why you didn’t oppose President Obama’s Executive Orders in similar veins? Oh right, because you’re a bloody political hack.]
This Op-Ed is in direct response to the Seattle P-I’s “news” story about Father Michael Ryan’s sermon of Sunday, Feb 5:
Fr. Michael Ryan of Seattle’s St. James Cathedral swerves unwittingly into the truth, but like a drunk driver on a car- and booze-fueled bender, he doesn’t realize it and keeps meandering his merry way home leaving (political) carnage in his wake.
Ryan argued Sunday that society has a right to “reasonable precautions” to assure public safety.
“Our nation has one of the most rigorous screening processes for immigrants and refugees in the world,” he said. “But when reasonable precautions turn into paranoia that whips up suspicion toward an entire population or religious group, we believers need to speak up and speak out.”
Sen. Murray slams ‘abhorrent’ move by President Trump on executive order targeting refugees | Bainbridge Island Review
Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) blasted President Donald Trump Saturday for his executive order for a 120-day halt on resettlement of any refugee to the United States.
[Ed.: More incoherent rambling from Senator Murray (D-WA). Evergreen State News has no record of her ‘blasting’ or ‘slamming’ Obama when he stopped refugees from Iraq from coming to the USA in 2011 for 6 months.]
‘We came to this beautiful country looking for safety’: Seattle-area refugees speak out on Trump crackdown | Seattle Times
Among the activists, politicians and immigrants gathered at Plymouth Congregational Church in Seattle to denounce President Trump’s approach to refugees was a Syrian couple who had hoped next week to be reunited here with their children, also fleeing the war-ravaged country.
[Ed.: While of course it’s lamentable that these folks are going through difficult times in their home country, it furthers the real need for pressure to be exerted on Bashar al-Assad to step down and a political solution to be reached that allows refugees to go back and rebuild their communities. An Islamic “reformation” would also be great while they’re at it.]
