Get in line…examining judicial bias

Mass incarceration attributed to judicial bias

To stop President Trump’s travel ban, a slew of Federal court judges in record speed rushed to decide Constitution protections for immigrants. Affected immigration travelers were composed of individuals who can legally enter the United States to those non-citizens who never touched US soil. While in contrast deciding rights of US citizens in courts across the country, there exists a problem of case backlog in enormous proportions.

Separation of power for three branches of government is being challenged by the Judiciary piling on to deny the president’s executive orders. Jurists have rationalized Trump’s campaign rhetoric as demonstrating religious bias intent rather than the travel ban stated reason which is public safety; setting a unique ‘past actions’ precedent for proving bias under the law. Today in the criminal justice system, 7 million people in the United States are controlled by the judiciary. Mass incarnation took hold at the launch of 1980s Drug War and its exorbitant increase in numbers has been rightfully attributed to the judiciary’s uneven delivery of justice.

Much like the Veterans Administration scandal, close examination of Federal district courts in processing cases will show enormous backlogs; inefficiencies. Federal Rules of Civic Procedure Rule 1 states, “These rules govern the procedure in all civil actions and proceedings in the United States district courts, except as stated in Rule 81. They should be construed, administered, and employed by the court and the parties to secure the just, speedy, and inexpensive determination of every action and proceeding.”

While many citizens wait for justice, it brings to the forefront that more needs to be done to get government functioning under the Constitution.
