The abuse of national injunctions allows courts to bypass normal legislative channels to pursue individual judges’ agendas, politicizing the courts and taking policymaking power away from the legislative and executive branches. Ending district courts’ use of nationwide injunctions will prevent unelected judges from wrongfully blocking policies crafted and enacted by publicly elected legislators.
National injunctions are a necessary court-based check against executive overreach, especially in the current political climate. Blocking district courts from issuing national injunctions is a clear partisan move that seeks to limit courts’ abilities to block the Trump administration’s most divisive — and often legally questionable — policies.
