WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is criticizing the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals over its ruling on the case involving young immigrants from deportation.
Trump says during a meeting with the nation’s governors that, “Nothing’s as bad as the 9th Circuit.”
He’s complaining that “every single case filed against us is in the 9th Circuit” and that, “We lose, we lose, we lose and then we do fine in the Supreme Court.”
Federal judges in San Francisco and New York have issued injunctions ordering the Trump administration to keep the program protecting “Dreamers” in place while courts consider legal challenges to Trump’s termination of the program.
The administration wanted to bypass the federal appeals court in San Francisco and go directly to the Supreme Court to decide the program’s fate, but the Supreme Court declined to intervene.
