On Thursday, the far-left Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against President Trump’s temporary ban on immigration from seven countries known to be hotbeds of terrorism, essentially telling the president he can’t protect the country from terrorists who might sneak into the U.S. posing as “refugees,” despite federal law. Now it seems there’s a growing move to split the court, known by many conservatives as the “9th Circus,” Fox News reported.
According to Fox:
Republican Sens. Jeff Flake and John McCain of Arizona introduced legislation last month to carve six states out of the San Francisco-based court circuit and create a brand new 12th Circuit.
They argue that the 9th is too big, too liberal and too slow resolving cases. If they succeed, only California, Oregon, Hawaii and two island districts would remain in the 9th’s judicial fiefdom.
Right now, Flake said, the circuit is far too sprawling.
“It represents 20 percent of the population — and 40 percent of the land mass is in that jurisdiction. It’s just too big,” Flake told Fox News on Wednesday. “We have a bedrock principle of swift justice and if you live in Arizona or anywhere in the 9th Circuit, you just don’t have it.”
Conservatives have mocked the 9th Circuit for years, often calling it the “Nutty 9th” or the “9th Circus,” in part because so many of its rulings have been overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court.
In fact, the Ninth Circuit is the most reversed court, according to numbers provided by the National Review…
“The court has a reputation as one of the most liberal in the country, in large part because of its makeup. Eighteen of the court’s 25 active judges have been appointed by Democrats. Former President George W. Bush appointed six justices, while former President Barack Obama appointed seven,” Fox said.
