Acting Attorney General fired after refusing to enforce Executive Order

Washington Post:
White House says ousted official had ‘betrayed’ the Justice Dept.

In ordering the Justice Department to not defend the travel order, Sally Yates, a holdover from the Obama administration, said she was not convinced that the travel order is lawful.

President Trump named Dana Boente, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, as acting attorney general. Boente said he will agree to enforce the order.

Earlier Monday, the president sought to play down the effects of his immigration order in a series of tweets, blaming “big problems at airports” on other factors, including demonstrators.
She should have resigned if she was unwilling to enforce the order.  It is not surprising that she was fired and she should have been.  What she did can be described as a betrayal of the Justice Department and the administration.

Trump is better off getting her out of there now rather than allowing her to poison the well from within with her bad attitude and her partisan fervor for the failed policies of the democrats.  Getting rid of people who do not support the policies Americans voted for should be a benefit to the new administration.
