New York Judge, Judge Ann Donnelly placed a stay on Donald Trump’s decision not to allow certain foreign nationals into the country, affecting between 100 and 200 people, was recommended by Chuck Schumer and nominated by Barack Obama. Like the ones who boosted her, Donnelly places ideology over the law.
From Fox News:
The order barred U.S. border agents from removing anyone who arrived in the U.S. with a valid visa from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen. It also covered anyone with an approved refugee application. The Department of Homeland Security said that more than 170 people were denied entry to the U.S. as of Saturday night, according to Reuters.
It’s interesting to note that the same law used by Trump for his ban has been used three times before, all by democrats with the last time being Barack Obama who banned all Iraqis from the United States for 6 months.
From The Brooklyn Eagle:
Donnelly was nominated to be a federal judge by President Barack Obama on the recommendation of Sen. Charles Schumer. On Friday, she had the oath of office administered to her by Chief Judge Carol Bagley Amon, and Judge Pamela K. Chen bestowed the ceremonial gavel to her as the newest judge in the court.
“We are indebted to Sen. Schumer for recommending Ann Donnelly and all of the other outstanding recent appointments,” Bagley Amon said. “She takes the seat vacated by Sandra Townes when Judge Towns took senior status — seat No. 10, created in 1978.”
