There is a new sheriff in town, and liberals like Judge Ann Donnelly are having a hard time adjusting.
Liberals celebrated when an Obama-appointed judge blocked President Donald Trump’s ban on travelers from seven Muslim countries. The thought of a Trump loss brought them laughter, but after the defiant liberal judge learned an immediate and brutal lesson, they aren’t laughing now.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), among others, was ecstatic when Judge Ann Donnelly of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York issued a temporary emergency halt to Trump’s immigration ban. As reported by RedStateWatcher, Donnelly was appointed by Barack Obama in 2015. So, it’s no wonder that the liberal left was applauding her defiance.
The National Political Director of the ACLU, Faiz Shakir, boldly stated, “I hope Trump enjoys losing. He’s going to lose so much we’re going to get sick and tired of his losing.” However, the liberal victory appears to be short-lived:
The Department of Homeland Security issued a statement early Sunday saying that they plan on continuing to “enforce all of the president’s executive orders in a manner that ensures the safety and security of the American people.”
The DHS said the court order would not affect the overall implementation of the White House order and the court order affected a small number of travelers who were inconvenienced by security procedures upon their return.
“The president’s executive orders remain in place—prohibited travel will remain prohibited, and the U.S. government retains its right to revoke visas at any time if required for national security or public safety,” the statement said. [Source: Fox News]
Stephen Miller, a Senior Advisor to the White House, also weighed in, explaining, “Nothing in the Brooklyn judge’s order in any way impedes or prevents the implementation of the president’s executive order which remains in full, complete and total effect.”
Protests ran rampant after the first travelers were detained, the event at JFK Airport being the most prominent.

After eight long years of Barack Obama and then a shocking upset of Hillary Clinton in the Election of 2016, liberals are having a hard time adjusting to their new reality.
Donald Trump was elected because people are concerned about immigration and border security, and if liberals in the judiciary, the legislature, and the media cannot come to accept the will of the Electorate, they will continue to live in a state of perpetual shock.
It is best to grow, evolve, and improve, isn’t it? Perhaps our “progressive” friends are not so progressive after all.
