Video: Judge Andrew Napolitano on Why the Ninth Circuit is Wrong in its Ruling on Immigration Ban

Judge Napolitano lays down the law on why the Ninth Circuit is wrong:

 

 

 

 Fox’s Judge Andrew Napolitano stated that the Ninth Circuit’s decision, to uphold the District Court halting of President Trump’s immigration ban from specific countries, had “inadequately addressed the primacy of the presidency when it comes to establishing foreign policy” and “stayed in the weeds on the rules.”   Napolitano pointed out that the Constitution empowers the President to handle foreign policy:

“This is an intellectually dishonest piece of work that the 9th Circuit has produced tonight, because it essentially consists of substituting the judgment of three judges for the President of the United States, when the Constitution unambiguously gives this area of jurisdiction––foreign policy––exclusively to the president.”
