9th Circuit Court of Appeals refuses to reinstate Trump’s Muslim travel ban

On Tuesday, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals conducted an hour-long phone hearing to determine the future of President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration. Namely, three federal judges determined whether a restraining order against Trump’s travel ban would remain in place. The court announced a decision on the ban on Thursday, Feb. 9 and ultimately ruled unanimously against reinstating the travel ban.

Trump’s executive order, signed on Friday Jan. 27, 2017, sought to temporarily ban U.S. entry to people traveling from seven majority-Muslim countries: Yemen, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Syria. The order would ban travel from those countries for 90 days and suspend the admission of refugees for 120 days. The day after signing his controversial order, thousands showed up to airports across the country in solidarity to protest what many referred to as an anti-Muslim ban.

Last week, the implementation of the travel ban was halted by a Seattle federal judge, which prompted a tweetstorm from the president. Trump tweeted on Feb. 4 in response to the restraining order, “The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!”

The legal battle continued this week as the Trump administration demanded an immediate reinstatement of the travel ban. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, upon hearing responses and counter-responses from both sides, decided against its reinstatement.

Time for Obama’s CCC?

With the Republican takeover of the House, getting any positive motion on anything the next two years will be impossible. Republicans are a worse case scenario in terms of significant recovery from the deepening recession…

Maybe it is time for some bold strokes. The US has major infrastructure problems, with roads, bridges, and culverts crumbling. Obama has consistently failed to utilize the apparatus of the Executive to drive positive change.

Maybe it’s time to start.

[spirit.jpg]Obama Should Create Jobs by Executive Order

On May 6, 1935, with the country in the midst of the Great Depression and with indirect efforts to create jobs having not moved the needle of unemployment rates, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 7034 and appropriated $4.8 billion for the Works Progress Administration (WPA). The WPA put millions of Americans to work constructing buildings, painting murals to decorate them and performing plays for audiences that had never before seen a dramatic production. In the process, many were saved from poverty and starvation and the economy began to revive.

Although Congress, as part of the New Deal, had appropriated money specifically for relief, FDR decided to use the money for a direct jobs program by issuing a presidential executive order. This executive order described the agencies to be involved in the program, its structure and procedure for application and allocation of jobs.

The WPA was quickly implemented. By March 1936, 3.4 million people were employed and an average of 2.3 million people worked monthly until the program ended in June 1943. During its existence, the WPA employed more than 8,500,000 different persons on 1,410,000 individual projects and spent about $11 billion. The average yearly salary was $1,100, a living wage at the time. During its eight-year history, the WPA built 651,087 miles of highways, roads and streets. It constructed, repaired or improved 124,031 bridges, 125,110 public buildings, 8,192 parks and 853 airport landing fields. Read the rest of this entry »
