Donald Trump Struck Down In Court

The Orangutan In Chief has only been in office for a week, and has already had one of his executive orders overturned in federal court. Judge Ann Donnelly of New York overturned Donald Trump's recent orders to deny entrance into the United States to anyone from Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, Yemen, and Syria. Trump was not concerned about his violation of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, which does not allow discrimination of any immigrant or perspective immigrant based on country of origin or religion. He just created and edict and let it fly. Hundreds of people from those countries were detained at airports until Judge Donnelly set them free. She also reminded those in the courtroom to let her know if those affected were still being detained after her ruling. The stay is temporary, so more court action is sure to follow. Wouldn't it be nice if the United States had a sitting president who was familiar with law?
