GOP Pushes Bill To Split Up ‘Nutty 9th Circuit’ Court of Appeals

The appeals court ruling kept Mr. Trump’s executive order on hold while courts consider whether it’s legal for him to impose a temporary ban on refugees and immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim nations.

As judges on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals weigh the legality of President Trump’s immigration executive order, a Republican push to split up the controversial court — and shrink its clout — is gaining steam on Capitol Hill.

Republican Sens. Jeff Flake and John McCain of Arizona introduced legislation 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.

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.”

Flake says it typically takes the court 15 months to hand down a decision.

“It’s far too long,” he added.

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.

This means that the court has a reputation for being the most liberal court in the country. 18 of the court’s 25 active judges were appointed by Democrats. This is not fair and the court’s decision was totally stacked against Trump.

It is time for a change, enough is enough of the corruption and the disrespectful liberal who promote hate and we need law, order and God’s love always in prayer, watch over, protect our nation and stand for our American flag amen.

    Splitting some states out of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals into a new district is long overdue. As you can see from this geographical map of their boundaries https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:US_Court_of_Appeals_and_District_Court_map.svg , it is very reasonable to split the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals into two districts. This will speed up the average process time for any one case and will provide a more fair representation of the western states in the Judicial Branch of our government.
