Funny how if she was "doing her job" why did she never question the decision made by President Obama on 26 May 2011 to renew the Patriot Act? If there was such a need to close Gitmo, why renew the law that put those people in there in the first place? 

Just another way to distract the public from the real issue at hand. Until the Patriot Act is fully repealed, it does not matter what your status is in this country. When the government wants to label anyone as a threat to national security all your right go out the window. 

Of course it doesn't help that she was the lead prosecutor for a terrorist attack in 1996. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centenni…

She was just another 'yes person' who wouldn't be looking too hard at the laws on the books. Like President Obama's drone policy.

I just like that is looking out for the constitution and all that. It was her job to make sure laws and regulations are well written, thought out, and follow the rules of our existing laws. Many people were baffled by how quickly this was all attempted to be enforced beyond the questions of morality and humanity it brought up. The bill was poorly constructed and rushed and she called it out, that's her job. I like living in a world where the president's word is not the absolute final say, we don't live in a monarchy. As a phrase one of my friends always says 'there are rules'. She did not get 'what she deserved', she got fired from doing her job because her boss wanted a 'yes man'.

During the campaign Trump literally got on stage and cited the constitutional statute that gave him authority to limit immigration from literally anywhere that he wants.
You chose to be willfully ignorant about this.
Zero sympathy for you, or her.

the worst part is that there was so much good that yates could have done!! so many ways she could have tried to temper the new administration and its ban..but instead of trying to address nuance and precise issues and enact change while at the table, she chose this hill to die on.  like wtf!!! it was martyrdom thru self-righteous indignation and now theres ZERO dissenting opinions in the doj with the sway she had.  it was an incredibly foolish decision.  progressives minds need to stop shooting themselves in the foot!!!! -_-

Someone is standing up. It's great to see and so cool you paid tribute.

I hope Sally uses this as a springboard to seek office somewhere.
