Sally Yates, Attorney General (AG) for the US, you’re fired!
“In a statement, the White House said Yates “has betrayed the Department of Justice by refusing to enforce a legal order designed to protect the citizens of the United States. This order was approved as to form and legality by the Department of Justice Office of Legal Counsel.
“Ms. Yates is an Obama Administration appointee who is weak on borders and very weak on illegal immigration.”
President Trump named Dana Boente, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, as acting attorney general until, according to the White House, U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions is approved by the Senate as the nation’s new chief justice officer.”
As liberal heads exploded across the country, conservatives quietly giggled in the background. Ok, maybe laughed heartily is more accurate. Trump dont play.
Ms. Yates, an Obama appointee since 2015, was the Acting AG. She lasted ten days in the Trump administration.
Trump really is draining the swamp.
After Ms. Yates refused to defend the POTUS’ recent Executive Order (EO) issuing a temporary halt on immigration from high risk countries, she was summarily dismissed.
Ironically, the Obama appointee was resisting an order similar to one originally penned by her former boss. The countries listed are from a list created also by her former boss.
The AG’s job is to enforce the laws of the US. Ms. Yate’s refusal to comply with immigration laws, including the EO, constitutes a betrayal of the office, and the entire country.
The AG office must enforce the laws as they exist. Anarchy from the Deptartment of Justice (DOJ) can not be tolerated. There is a time and a place for activism. The office of the AG of the US is neither.
Liberals ignored Obama’s reckless disregard for the law with complicity from the DOJ. Given these past behaviors, Ms. Yates felt she could run rough shod over these same laws.
Sorry Sally, there is a new sherriff in town. Sally better head on down to that unemployment line tomorrow.
Welcome to the real world.
