SCOTUS sounded a little bit testy with lower courts

You know how the tone of your Mother’s voice could tell you that she was not pleased with your behavior? Well SCOTUS, the Supreme Court of the United States, seems to have used that tone to its lower courts. They did not seem pleased that the lower courts had inserted themselves into what is the responsibilities of the President. Specifically, the President’s travel ban. Observers of the Court took note of a couple of ways that the court sent the message back downstream. You can see how they read that from the court findings by reading more here.

As Written By Kevin Daley for the Daily Caller:

The U.S. Supreme Court appears somewhat irritated with federal courts that have repeatedly barred the Trump administration from enforcing immigration policies halting the entry of certain classes of migrants and refugees.

The high court’s latest orders sent three clear signals to lower courts, all of which are positive signs for President Donald Trump.

First, the Supreme Court is quite clearly expressing its view that the government will prevail on the merits of this dispute. The Court would not grant an application with these facts if a majority of the justices did not believe the administration will ultimately be vindicated. As such, the orders appear to be a signal to the 4th and 9th U.S. Circuit Courts of Appeal, two venues currently adjudicating travel ban challenges — proceed prudently, and with sufficient respect for the presumption that the administration is acting in good faith.

Secondly, the Court, for the most part, spoke as an institution. The order was forthright and terse, suggesting the Court sees little ambiguity in this case. The sober style means to communicate decisiveness, competence and the sense that the Court is conducting its business without dramatics, unlike the rest of the government. What’s more…….
