Trump’s Travel Ban Suspended Indefinitely by Hawaiian Judge
It never got out of the gate. After President Donald Trump’s first executive order barring travelers from seven Muslim-majority nations was blocked, the second, which removed Iraq from the list, was temporarily halted by a federal judge in Hawaii. Now Judge Derrick Watson has indefinitely extended that suspension, reiterating that the order amounts to unconstitutional religious discrimination, considering campaign promises from the president to ban Muslims from entering the United States. As long as the order is being contested in court, officials won’t be allowed to enforce it.
