President Donald trump has fired the acting attorney General Sally Yates Monday night because of "non-observance of the legal order designed to protect the citizens of the United States," the White house said.
Dana Boente, the Prosecutor in the Eastern district of Virginia was sworn in at 9 PM Eastern time. After a few hours, Bente issued a statement abolishing the order of the Yates." Trump didn't call Yates to fire her, she was informed by letter in accordance with another officer of the authority.
The drastic step was taken shortly after Yates informed the lawyers of the Ministry of justice not to do legal documents that protect orders trump on immigration and refugees. "My responsibility is to ensure that the position of the Ministry of justice is not only legally justified, but is informed by law after consideration of all the facts," she said in the letter. "In addition, I am responsible for ensuring that positions in the court remained consistent with the solemn obligation of the institution to always seek justice and stand for what is right."
There are currently cases filed in at least five States, including Virginia, new York, Massachusetts, Washington and California, which challenge the order of the trump about refugees. Policy Director of the White house Steven Miller, who helped the government order to come into force, said the decision of the Yates "a further demonstration of how politicized our legal system". Miller also defended the legality of the Order, insisting that the immigration Act and the citizenship gives the President "the opportunity to exclude any class of potential visitors or immigrants to our country based on our national security interests."
