As the founder of both Judicial Watch and now Freedom Watch and a former federal prosecutor, I issued the following statement though a press release earlier today, in the wake of the outrageous and patently illegal decision of a federal judge in Seattle to place a temporary restraining order on the recent executive action by President Donald Trump to put a 90-day hold on immigration from seven Middle Eastern countries, all of which harbor huge numbers of Muslim terrorists bent on harming the United States.
"The ruling is regrettably not surprising, as this judge not only disobeyed and flouted the law but apparently was more intent on making a name for himself in a very leftist state, Washington, and around the nation. While he was nominated by former President George W. Bush, this means little to nothing.
