She you know there was a moment where it she just didn't click cheek she didn't get it but for. For whatever reason she wanted to use the big snow blowers about whether if nothing else it's it's a way that it. You know it starts in addicted.

Or negate TCI it's 46 and blue springs 48 at your official weather station I'm Kara marks her stay connected with nears 981 KM BZ and KM BZ in dot com. Breaking news here from Reuters and NBC news. It's simply. Eight seconds federal judge today has blocked. President Donald Trump's decision to end a program that protects immigrants brought to the United States illegally. As children from deportation. Mommy put this in layman's terms I understand. A federal judge today a second federal judge. Has ruled that the president's decision to end doctor is not okay. Or said more simply. A federal judge has blocked. An attempt to end dock which likely is going to according to this story send it even closer. The US supreme court for final decision on Friday. The US Supreme Court is due to consider whether to take up. The administration's appeal of the Sanford Cisco ruling. The court could amounts. As soon as Friday afternoon whether it plans to hear the case but race is a second federal judge today. Has rejected the president's. Executive order to end the doctor in March. Here's what this means and this from dateline. Is. What really should have happened. And you know people tend to like executive orders when their president is is an office are you today hate executive orders when it's the other guys agree. Doctor Joseph was a President Obama. Executive executive order that Donald Trump argued was unconstitutional. Brand is on defense the huge rise to as an executive board so. Like docket or hate doc act. This is what needs to happen people need clarification. There are too many families. That are. Living terrified right now. Young people contributing members of society because they don't know what tomorrow is gonna bring our next week or next month if I check in like I'm supposed to with ice. Are they go going to arrest me and kick me out. The Supreme Court. Has to weigh in on this Scott we have a full court. Let the justices hear the arguments and then let's move on yeah settled law and let's blue line. Somebody says an executive orders started docket did it not yes. It's an answer this tax as I go through it but that does not mean because an executive order start something. That it should not be used as a test case for the Supreme Court somebody says an executive order started docket did it not yes. So why can't an executive order ended I am genuinely curious. 24884. Great question that is. Here is here is the answer as I would understand it and I am no law professor or a lawyer you're. Com boom ba. And Dave is right to this extent. We hate. Executive as Republicans. We hated executive borders when Obama was right at them but man we love them when trumpets. And you can't really have it both ways just like for those of you who were big time supporters of Barack Obama of which I was not. You can't love executive orders when he's the president and then hate him when trump he has. However. Here is to answer your question genuinely curious and it's a great question. The Supreme Court has to take into consideration and I think ultimately this is what the courts are trying to do is send it up. To the supreme courts of those nine justices can finally determine. What's right and what is wrong. And ultimately we're gonna have to abide by what they say what you wanna write an amendment of the constitution and that's per hour. I don't even know if his judge believed what I hear she said and I think they're ultimately trying to send this up to the Supreme Court right now. Just to get it settled once and parole but to answer your question. If they president passes a law or check that president's camp pass laws. If a president signs an executive order will let me use this is the example. That says that. Black people have the right. To eat in any restaurant they so choose and restaurants don't have the right to ban people based on their color. And the next president comes in. And says screw that executive order and I must say I'm not using a bomber trump I'm using a hypothetical here. And the next president comes and this is no screw that executive order. Black people do not have the right to go into any restaurant they so choose and restaurants have every right to say that. They will serve people based on the color of their skin. That would then go presumably at some point as it works its way through the appellate court system. To the US Supreme Court at which time he was Supreme Court. Would decide whether or not black people have the right to eat in any restaurant they want or whether restaurants have the right to ban people. Based on the color of their scam. What's happening here is these two presidents Obama and trump. Have locked us into a debate that congress apparently doesn't want to Saul. And by that I mean Democrats and Republicans. And so the courts are thrusting it up to the US Supreme Court because. Obama said children brought here by their parents who broke no all on their own volition. Should be allowed to stay in this country illegally. Donald Trump said that is unconstitutional. For president to make some such a sweeping. Decision. And I am going to rescind that decision in an executive order and force the congress to come up with an agreement within six months. The courts have decided we were sending this to the Supreme Court were what these guys take care. I love it as I try to benefit is that a fair. It is you just want to back and forth in the back and forth I'm trying to read through in New York magazine had an article about a week ago and it says. These Supreme Court would be crazy. To jump into the dock a dispute and I'm reading through it now I think it's there are I think I am Robert de grace I think it is their obligation. To jump into this dispute this needs to be settled. Law period. Come by the way some misses the Supreme Court decides on laws of the country Donald Trump's executive orders. They can't turn into. Sorry techs like keeps things on Santa's side because of the legal challenges making their way up through the courts. Regarding the deportation of the dreamers. That's what's happening there's going to be a test case was someone who's. 24 years old okay who has been told you can't stay here and that person and that case is winding its way up the court. It's so bases doesn't program and next month yes I believe it's march 5. If I'm not mistaken march 5. So the Supreme Court is going to decide this Friday. Whether they're gonna take up the dock issue. 82 federal judge has now said the Donald Trump did not have the rights and the doctor program. 576779576779. So as of right now. The way I understand all docket does not end on March 5. Until or unless another judge or the Supreme Court says Donald Trump was in the right. And Donald Trump had every right to and doc. Correct me if I'm wrong my lawyer friends. But he second federal judge has just rule. That Donald Trump did not have the right to and the doctor program. It's my understanding that. Now doctor is the law of the land until or unless. Another judge higher up than that one or the Supreme Court. Says he most certainly did it 57677. On it.

Going on right now and Nebraska furniture mart. And we'll come up. Sources give this one out away. These two federal judges the most res one being with them last. A couple of hours that have ruled that Donald Trump overstepped his bounds. He in getting rid of these doctoral program both. Were appointed by President Bill Clinton. The US Supreme Court. Is expected to announce by Friday whether they plan to take up daka. And is it possible is really quick I need to clarify this you know usually. They look at a case they think on the case there's an opinion there's a dissenting opinion than there are other opinions and nine months later we have the results. Are used suggesting that the Supreme Court will take up this case hear it and decided within. Weeks well they can and have I'm I'm I'm trying to remember one off the top of my head. But I can I held all look at one up. From time to time the Supreme Court does meet and issue an immediate order think about people who were on death row for example. The US Supreme Court doesn't take up your case. At 8 o'clock at night when your schedule to be executed at midnight. And say what will give back to you in six months. They take up the case of either rejected or they except at a meter issuance today or they don't. And so. That that is a bad example but it is an example. Of when the US Supreme Court will immediately here or not hear a case. And by not hearing at the issue a decision any real. Sure if you think about it. We're targeting your case there there there are not going to I think it's likely I'm not a lawyer I have no experience in the law. Never been charged with a crime. And speeding tickets and stuff but I would imagine the US Supreme Court takes us one. Pierce I think it is is appears. Here's. So I was gonna say that the market doesn't it could be determined one way or the other but it needs to be done by the legislature and courts courts. Do not make law they interpret law that. Simple separation of powers. Opposition. We need to meet older legislators creek fire and make them come up with some compromised or some rule that represents. The world people. Near record Ayers wouldn't the Supreme Court in essence just be cutting out the middleman here docking is all ready for today anyway. The rule of order that is being followed. It I think if you bring the legislature into it as dysfunctional as our lawmakers are. This is something that needs to be decided quickly not ten years from now or six years from now. Isn't this just coming up the middle man if it goes directly to the Supreme Court the Supreme Court can rule either at the dreamers can stay where they got to go and then. After that they can go back and craft a law. Based on our legality of the dreamers staying here. Well that's possible they could say so if you look at what so what the judge in New York today so he just that the basis for. I executive order. Ending dark was too arbitrary JavaScript cork common and say. We're gonna hold out and say. We're gonna extend the time for daka. Intel the legislature comes to an opinion that it kind of than usual but I think they could do but they can't. They can't be the final word on creating a law that allows. That essentially makes an executive order of the law the way. And they were later group. But in the executive order has the force of eight ball. It does that then you have an executive sort docket was. Let the DREAM Act Kremer sack went through the legislature or. And then in both cases the Republicans cool blustery. Morning to overcome. So then you have Obama critics and executives weren't that becomes the law that then what you do to win another executive order. Confidently send and it would appear to me. That he wants trump listened or is executive order rescinding Obama cricket ordered them not become. So the question isn't that too arbitrary. That's what the rule in Tibet and that this it was too arbitrary. Supreme Court maybe he'll say here we're going. You know basically call now and but ultimately the Supreme Court and beat the final work they cannot beat the ones who made the law. It says that can't be listened to by. They are interpreting them on here and are now permanent that would be great. What about the Dred Scott decision what there have been countless times with the US Supreme Court has. In essence made law by upholding or rejecting existing law. What note that the dread Scott decision was a constitutional. Ones. Go to law where the constitutional. Because of Michael. Here's I think looking at a different without a distinction are distinct without a difference are you phrase it because by saying that something is either constitutional. Or not constitutional. That's one way to settle it on your agent while you're doing is well know sometimes the US Supreme Court does make law. By ruling some a law unconstitutional. That's not making a law. That's a report that through that is relevant laws being not constitute I please have. All to a fact making a bull. What what he's saying I think they'll work and this is on that text line that docket isn't a law so how can that court interprets something that isn't a law because the court is allowed let me read you this. We're this is from Wikipedia some checkers source you don't like it then don't was. In the United States an executive order is a directive issued by the president of the United States. That manages operations of the federal government and has the force of law. But here's what argue has the force of law does not make it's the law the legal or constitutional basis for executive orders has multiple sources goes on to cite them okay. Like both legislative statutes and regulations promulgate by government agencies. Executive orders are subject to judicial review. And may be overturned. If the orders lacks support by statute of the US constitution. They are in essence law we may not like it. And yes the the federal courts are an equal branch of government. And by rejecting laws as unconstitutional. In essence make wall that's just a fact. By the way if you want an example of an executive order that was never passed by the congress look at the integration of the US military. That was an executive order from one Harry S Truman really tenants Missouri. Allowing blacks and the military was an hour blacks to serve with whites in the military. Was an executive order by Harry S Truman it was not a long haul. Per say passed by the congress it is still in effect today thank god. To the newsroom and in one.
