Earlier today, acting Attorney General Sally Yates that was appointed by Obama is waiting the days until she is inevitably replaced by Jeff Sessions. President Trump’s pick for the position is set to be confirmed when the Senate votes on Tuesday.
The problem came when Attorney General Yates decided to tell the Justice Department earlier to not uphold and defend President Trump’s pause on immigrants and refugees from terrorist connected countries, but her protest has been short lived.
As reported by The New York Times, Attorney General Yates was just fired by President Trump.
She didn’t have the right to abuse the position that she was given under a different president to try and stall the plans of the now acting President Trump.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer cleared the air about the temporary ban for immigrants and refugees.
Reported by The New York Times:
“The president has a very clear vision,” Mr. Spicer said. “He’s been clear on it since the campaign, he’s been clear on it since taking office — that he’s going to put the country first.”
“If somebody has a problem with that agenda,” he added, “that does call into question whether or not they should continue in that post.”
Sean Spicer also had more to say after State Department officials circulated a dissent memo about Trump’s pause to establish sufficient vetting measures on immigrants.
“These career bureaucrats have a problem with it?” Mr. Spicer said. “They should either get with the program or they can go.”
Trump’s ban is actually for only half a long as President Obama’s, but the media isn’t talking about that.
President Trump simply wants to protect the borders and the American people from terrorism and is pausing the immigration and refugee programs until extreme vetting measures can be implemented.
This is strategy people not racism. It was Obama’s administration that identified the seven countries on the list as having the most potential to have terrorist connections.
