Hawaii lawmakers criticize Sessions' island judge remarks (365 hits)

Hawaii lawmakers criticize Sessions' island judge remarks
By AUDREY McAVOY, Associated Press

HONOLULU — Hawaii's Democratic lawmakers on Thursday criticized Attorney General Jeff Sessions after he expressed amazement on a radio show that a "judge sitting on an island in the Pacific" could stop the president's travel ban.

U.S. Sen. Mazie Hirono responded by trying to give Sessions a civics lesson on Twitter, saying Hawaii has been a U.S. state for 58 years.

The senator said later in a telephone interview the remarks showed a lack of awareness about the separation of powers between the judiciary and executive branches.

U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson last month blocked President Donald Trump's executive order prohibiting new visas for people from six Muslim-majority countries and temporarily halting the U.S. refugee program. The Trump Administration appealed the ruling.

HEY STEVEN, NEWS FLASH!!!!

FACT, HAWAII IS THE 50th STATE IN THE UNION

Think about it for a moment Steven, if U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson did not have that power, why is Attorney General Jeff Sessions crying about what happen from HAWAII?
