"The increasing frequency of limitless injunctions is simply unsustainable, and the ever-more extreme nature of some of these injunctions is only making it more obvious just how unconstitutional they are," Sessions said. 
 
"But we are hopeful that the Supreme Court will soon send a clear message to the lower courts that injunctions ought to be limited to the parties in the case," he added. 
 
Trump's executive orders to instate a travel ban from Muslim-majority countries and to halt the enlistment of transgender individuals in the military are among a number of policies that have been halted in court.
 
Multiple district court and federal appeals court judges have ruled on cases challenging the executive orders, oftentimes ordering injunctions that have temporarily halted Trump's policies from being implemented.
 
"In order for our system to function, the Court must end government-by-litigation," Sessions reportedly said Saturday. "I am hopeful they soon will, and that ... with your help we will restore the rule of law in this country."
 
According to CNN, Sessions praised a federal judge in Maryland during his speech, after the judge dismissed a case on Monday that challenged Trump's decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program
 
The Obama-era program permits certain immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children, often called "Dreamers," to temporarily stay in the country without fear of deportation. Dreamers and immigrant rights groups across the country have legally challenged the move to end DACA. 
 
Trump has ripped judges in the past for ruling against his policies.
 
The Supreme Court ultimately allowed Trump's executive order banning immigration from certain countries to go into effect. His ban on transgender individuals in the military, however, is still being challenged in court.
