Trump’s Travel Ban Once Again Blocked

A federal judge in Hawaii has blocked US President Trump’s revised travel ban just hours before it was due to go into effect, marking another stinging blow to the administration.

Judge Derrick Watson, a district judge in Honolulu, issued a nationwide temporary restraining order against Trump’s travel ban, which targets visa applicants from six Muslim majority countries and temporarily suspends the US refugee resettlement program.

According to The Guardian, the ruling comes a month after Trump’s first order was blocked by a court in Washington state, prompting the administration to issue a narrower order last week that attempted to navigate some of the complaints made in the first round of legal battles.
