All other executive orders signed by President Donald Trump got eclipsed by the once he signed last weekend, to ban immigration from seven countries in the war-torn region namely Syria, Sudan, Libya, Iran, Iraq, Yemen, and Somalia, temporarily for 90 days. The order has triggered protests all across the globe and earned Trump the ire of global leaders. The move has also triggered an administrative war within the Federal government.
In the Senate and in the House, democrats are furious over Trump’s executive orders and the acting Attorney General Sally Yates ordered the justice department lawyers to not to defend Trump’s executive orders in court. She got fired by the President, within the next few hours. The next attorney general Jeff Sessions is yet to be confirmed by the Senate democrats, so the President appointed Dana J. Boente for the time being. This could mark the beginning of a deep cleansing through the federal government and its agencies under the new administration by showing the door to those who fail to abide by both the vision of the new government and the law.
While the attorney general may not have liked the order, she was legally bound to abide by it. The Federal immigration law under Section 1182(f) gives the President Trump the power to ban or suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants.
