Hawaii Judge Blocks Trump's Second Travel Ban
A Hawaii federal judge extended his order to block President Trump's revised travel ban. His ruling prevents the Trump administration from suspending visas for people from six countries and the nation's refugee program.
The Associated Press reports Hawaii Attorney General Douglas Chin said Trump's ban discriminates against Muslims and is like a "neon sign flashing 'Muslim ban, Muslim ban.'" Chin said the ban will harm the state's tourism industry.
The Justice Department may now appeal the decision, that would bring it all back to U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, where Trump's first travel ban was blocked. Trump called the order "unprecedented judicial overreach."
