GET READY: Republicans Pushing Bill To Divide Up Left-Wing 9th Circuit Court

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is radically left-wing.

They’ve just ruled that President Donald Trump’s travel ban is unconstitutional, despite travel bans being totally constitutional in the past.

And now, the 9th Circuit may be dismantled.

Fox News reports:

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

Right now, 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. 

Better get ready Democrats!

Reform is on its way!
