A Leftist federal judge in Hawaii has blocked the federal government from carrying out the President Trump administration’s newest…..
TRAVEL BAN: U.S. District Court Judge Derrick Watson issued a temporary restraining order Tuesday on President Trump’s executive order, which had banned citizens of eight countries from entering the U.S. due to national security concerns. Hawaii argues the updated ban is a continuation of Donald Trump’s “promise to exclude Muslims from the United States”.
WATSON: Had previously blocked Trump’s last travel ban in March. In his ruling on Tuesday, Watson said Hawaii was likely to succeed in proving that Trump’s latest travel ban violates federal immigration law.
The policy “suffers from precisely the same maladies as its predecessor: it lacks sufficient findings that the entry of more than 150 million nationals from six specified countries would be ‘detrimental to the interests of the United States,’” Watson wrote.
THE WHITE HOUSE: President Trump added Chad, Venezuela, and North Korea to the total list of eight countries whose citizens may not travel to the U.S., except for Venezuela, where only government officials were banned.
The White House added the affected countries still have a way to get off the list.
They Said “The restrictions being imposed on these eight countries are conditional and may be lifted as they work with the United States Government to ensure the safety of Americans.”
