Idiot: Black Robes Matter

If the judge is going to take sides, then he needs to take the side door out of the courtroom! m/r

Judge Who Blocked Trump Action Has Activist Past

Robart made a point of saying 'Black Lives Matter' in dispute with Seattle police, does pro bono work for refugees

U.S. District Court Judge James Robart, who Friday temporarily curtailed President Donald Trump’s refugee executive order, has something of an activist history on the bench.
When Robart ruled in favor of Washington state’s attorney generals Friday, he claimed that Trump’s order temporarily banning U.S. entry to citizens from seven terrorism-compromised nations was not “rationally based” and has “harmed” the states and “inflicted” damage upon them. Writing that “the court concludes that the circumstances brought before it today are such that it must intervene to fulfill its constitutional role in our tripartite government,” Robart issued a decision hailed by the mainstream media and liberal activists.
“Forty-one percent of the casualties, 20 percent people of the population. Black lives matter.”

“Judge Robart’s decision, effective immediately, effective now, puts a halt to President Trump’s unconstitutional and unlawful executive order. It puts a stop to it immediately, nationwide,” Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson told reporters, according to Politico. “What the judge announced today was nationwide; the president’s executive order does not apply.”
