president fires acting attorney general over refugee ban statement


president trump fired the acting attorney general of the united states after she refused to defend in court his refugee and immigration ban.the clash monday between trump and longtime prosecutor sally yates revealed disagreements surrounding friday’s executive order that suspended the u.s. refugee program for 120 days and banned entries from seven muslim-majority nations for 90 days. the attorney general is the head of the department of justice and the chief lawyer for the u.s. government. if a person or group were to challenge whether trump’s order is lawful under the constitution, the attorney general or someone from that office would argue in support of the order.on monday afternoon, yates told justice department lawyers that she wasn’t “convinced that the executive order is lawful.” th






sally yates' principled stand - ny daily news

trump’s firing of the acting attorney general sets a dangerous precedent


matthew miller was director of the justice department’s public affairs office from 2009 to 2011.president trump’s decision on monday night to fire acting attorney general sally yates for daring to exercise her objective legal judgment about the president’s recent immigration order violated the traditional independence of the justice department and sets a dangerous precedent for the rule of law under his administration.under long-standing traditions in administrations of both parties, the attorney general is charged with enforcing the law free from political interference from the white house. this standard of independence, unique among cabinet members, is designed to insulate questions of law from inappropriate political pressure, and presidents and attorneys general who have violated that






official: trump, giuliani tv interviews influenced yates’s decision to defy pres


as acting attorney general sally yates struggled to figure out how or whether to defend president trump’s immigration order last weekend — while protests erupted at airports nationwide, immigrants were denied entry to the united states and civil rights lawyers rushed to court — two events helped crystallize her decision.the first was a television appearance by trump on the christian broadcasting network. in an interview, he said that christians in the middle east who were persecuted should be given priority to move to the united states because they had been “horribly treated.”the second was late urday night when former new york mayor rudolph w. giuliani appeared on fox news. giuliani said trump wanted a “muslim ban” and asked him to pull together a commission to show him “the right way to

trump goes above and beyond to break the unwritten rules of governing


america’s history of orderly freedom reflects the strength of our constitution and laws. yet it also demonstrates the power of unwritten rules — norms of civility and decency — that are often hard to define but always crucial to respect, lest social trust disappear and instability spread. as judge learned hand famously remarked: “liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it; no constitution, no law, no court can even do much to help it.” unwritten rules lie at the heart of the conflict over president trump’s firing of the acting attorney general, sally yates, a caretaker left over from the obama administration. ms. yates felt she was honoring a vital unwritten rule — the justice department’s political independence — by refus
