Sloppy, reckless, and hurtful Trump

Donald Trump mindlessly breezed through executive orders this week believing that anybody can whip them out just as he. The job of president is to preside as the lawyer in chief because they initiate, amend, modify, and seek to retire laws and regulations through due process. They do so in concert with the legislative branch.

Executive orders are a mechanism for operating within the law to direct the preferences of the President. They must be well crafted and vetted by lawyers for their legal foundation. They must be tested as to how they will work when implemented. Details matter the most in the operational environment. They affect people.

Donald Trump' style is unsuited for the automated regulatory environment. According to the judge, Trump's actions cause "substantial and irreparable injury to refugees, visa-holders, and other individuals."

The Republican Party, members of the House and Senate, are well advised to get a grip on the Commander-in-Chief who represents their brand of leadership.

“Federal Judge Stays Deportations, Blocking Part Of Trump's Immigration Order 
A federal judge in Brooklyn, N.Y. granted a request from the ACLU on Saturday to stay deportations of people after they have landed at a U.S. airport with valid visas. The ruling by Judge Ann Donnelly temporarily blocks part of President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration signed on Friday. 
According to NPR's Hansi Lo Wang:
"In her order, Judge Ann Donnelly cited "substantial and irreparable injury to refugees, visa-holders, and other individuals" from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen, as well as a strong likelihood that deporting these individuals would violate "their rights to Due Process and Equal Protection guaranteed by the United States Constitution." 
The stay will last until a court hearing is held on the merits of this case brought by the ACLU and other legal organizations. It applies to "all people stranded in U.S. airports," according to a statement by the ACLU. They say the stay will affect 100 to 200 people detained at U.S. airports or in transit.”
