Trump administration to challenge lower courts issuing nationwide injunctions

Vice President Mike Pence on Wednesday called on the Supreme Court to step in and order lower courts to limit their rulings to the parties in front of them, tamping down on the explosion of nationwide injunctions that have stymied many of the Trump administration’s policies.

Mr. Pence said the administration will give the justices a chance to make that ruling.

“In the days ahead, our administration will seek opportunities to put this question before the Supreme Court — to ensure that decisions affecting every American are made either by those elected to represent the American people or by the highest court in the land,” the vice president told the Federalist Society.

He said the Trump administration has “faced more nationwide injunctions than the first 40 American presidents — combined.”
