system,” a 9th Circuit judge said.

CNBC: “Congress has handed Trump a historic presidential victory”
Trump will get to fill the most federal judiciary vacancies in 40 years
President Donald Trump should give special thanks to two U.S. Senators this Thanksgiving weekend. One is still serving in the Senate, the other recently retired. One is a Republican. The other a Democrat. And what should President Trump be thanking them for?
Quite simply they have handed him one of the biggest victories any president could claim in the past 45 years.

The implications of this are stark and terrifying. “Almost overnight, the judicial branch would consist of equal parts judges picked by nine presidents combined — and judges picked by one: Donald J. Trump.”

Trump appointees. These judges could roll back years of
hard-fought victories.

Immigration judges are quitting or retiring early because of Trump

Dozens of other judges concerned about their independence
have done the same, according to the union that represents
them and interviews with several who left.

“We’ve seen stuff which is unprecedented — people leaving
the bench soon after they were appointed,” said A. Ashley
Tabaddor, an immigration judge in Los Angeles and president
of the National Assn. of Immigration Judges union. “Judges
are going to other federal agencies and retiring as soon as
possible. They just don’t want to deal with it. It’s become
unbearable.”
