VIDEO: Peter Van Voorhis Slams Activist Judge Blocking Border Wall
Republican strategist Peter Van Voorhis joined Fox and Friends First on Memorial Day to debate Democrat consultant Mustafa Tameez on the topic of ‘judge shopping’ and how the left is using the court system to block President Trump’s campaign promise to build the border wall.
“Trump calls for an 'expedited appeal' after an Obama-appointed judge blocks the president from building sections of the border wall; reaction from political strategists Peter Van Voorhis and Mustafa Tameez.”
Editor in Chief of Kivo Daily, Dillon Kivo wrote, “The segment discussed a recent federal court ruling, where Judge Haywood Gilliam, who donated more than $20,000 to President Obama’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee, ruled against the Trump administration’s plans to construct a border fence in Arizona and Texas.
Van Voorhis argued that, “When these are supposedly clear cut Constitutional issues like this Judge said, why are these Democrats filing cases in places like Oakland, like New York, like Washington D.C.? It’s not by accident, it’s because they have no agenda in 2020 and they have to do everything they can to shut down the President, and this is what they’re going to do.”
Adam Kohen covered the segment for The Schpiel writing, “On Fox News this morning, Republican commentator Peter Van Voorhis argued that Democrats cannot justify using the term ‘constitutional principles’ to fight against border security because they don’t stand for those principles in their politics.
“The Left likes to selectively adopt the term Constitutional argument,” Van Voorhis said. “You can cry Constitutional foul all you want, but if you haven’t stood for constitutional principles at all in your politics, why are you coming on here and talking about the Constitution?”
Peter Van Voorhis was named to the Red Alert 30 under 30 list for conservatives and has been labeled by the LA Times as the ‘Fresh Face of the GOP.’ Follow Peter on Twitter and Instagram and visit PeterVanVoorhis.com
