Implementing and enforcing any immigration policy requires the cooperation of customs and border patrol which falls under the jurisdiction of the Department of Homeland Security, but our Moron in Chief did not even consult Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly before signing his order.
Secretary Kelly reportedly learned about the executive order by watching television.
Gen. John F. Kelly, the secretary of homeland security, had dialed in from a Coast Guard plane as he headed back to Washington from Miami. Along with other top officials, he needed guidance from the White House, which had not asked his department for a legal review of the order.
Halfway into the briefing, someone on the call looked up at a television in his office. “The president is signing the executive order that we’re discussing,” the official said, stunned.
This undoubtedly contributed to the patchwork of confusion that erupted over the weekend. The agency responsible for implementing the order had no guidance at all and relied almost entirely on low level superiors interpreting Trump's unconstitutional order for themselves.
With that said, some agents at airports across the country refused to comply with court orders that were physically handed to them in person and even refused to cooperate with elected representatives and senators. This weekend's events were a reminder that there are willing jackboots serving in our nation's security apparatus.
Based on what we know, it appears the White House either ignored or did not seek legal advice before Trump signed the order. The other possibility is Trump's crony legal advisers gave it the Okay. Trump seemingly does whatever Steve Bannon tells him to do.
