PostSubject: Government is Chaos: Acting Attorney General Orders Justice Dept. Not to Defend Refugee Ban   Mon Jan 30, 2017 6:56 pm

Acting Attorney General Sally Q. Yates, a holdover from the Obama administration, ordered the Justice Department on Monday not to defend President Trumpís executive order on immigration in court.



ďI am responsible for ensuring that the positions we take in court remain consistent with this institutionís solemn obligation to always seek justice and stand for what is right,Ē Ms. Yates wrote in a letter to Justice Department lawyers. ďAt present, I am not convinced that the defense of the executive order is consistent with these responsibilities nor am I convinced that the executive order is lawful.Ē
The decision is largely symbolic ó Mr. Trumpís nominee to be attorney general, Jeff Sessions, is likely to be confirmed soon ó but it highlights the deep divide at the Justice Department and elsewhere in the government over Mr. Trumpís order.
