From Frances Langum:
DOJ Lawyer Jeffrey Wall does his best, referring to a third party brief (!?) to explain that Trump has “clarified” his campaign statements.
But the judges noted that the “Muslim ban” stuff didn’t come down off of the Trump campaign website until when? May 8?! And they were not, as great legal minds would put it, “impressed.”
A second judge on the panel mentioned “Koramatsu,” the case that upheld the inhumane detention of Japanese citizens during World War II, and that is now universally condemned as a bad case.
