In this episode, the guys break down the recent decision by a federal court to enjoin the enforcement of President Trump’s Executive Order 13768 regarding Sanctuary Cities.
First, though, Andrew tackles a popular question from Brad Kalmanson (and others) as to whether Donald Trump can really make good on his weird threat to “break up” the 9th Circuit. The answer will almost certainly surprise you.
In the main segment, we analyze the Sanctuary Cities Executive Order and the Trump Administration’s rather amazing legal “strategy” they orchestrated to try and defend it. If you have Trump supporters in your news feed (or are one yourself!), you’ll be amazed at what the administration did.
After that, Andrew answers an in-person question from David at ReasonCon about the practice of law.
Finally, we end with a brand new Thomas Takes the Bar Exam question #22 about selling a priceless work of art. Remember that TTTBE issues a new question every Friday, followed by the answer on next Tuesday’s show.
