Judge James Robart, of the Federal District Court in Seattle, blocked President Trump’s travel ban on people from seven countries. But, Judge Napolitano isn’t sure that is going to stand.
Judge Nap says the states of Washington an Minnesota aren’t appropriate plaintiffs in this case. “The Constitution requires the plaintiffs be people who are actually harmed or in immediate likelihood of harm … to bring a lawsuit, particularly against the president of the United States,” Judge Napolitano said.
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals will be hearing the appeal on the ban today. When asked what he thinks will happen, the Judge says he thinks things will go the President’s way.
“That the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals will reverse Judge Robart and reinstate President Trump’s executive order, because the two plaintiffs here – the two states, Washington and Minnesota – do not have the standing to bring an action on behalf of others,” Judge Napolitano said. “Others who are harmed have to bring that action directly.”
Watch him explain why in the video below.
We’ll soon find out if he’s right. President Trump has been clear about how he feels about what many are saying was a ruling from an activist judge.
The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!

Just cannot believe a judge would put our country in such peril. If something happens blame him and court system. People pouring in. Bad!
