Judge In Hawaii Extends Order Blocking Trump’s Travel Ban

Judge In Hawaii Extends Order Blocking Trumps Travel BanU.S. District Judge Derrick Watson on Wednesday evening extended his previous order that halts President Trump’s revised travel ban. He made his decision after hearing arguments from the government and from Hawaii Attorney General Douglas Chin, who argued that Trump’s order was like a “neon sign flashing ‘Muslim ban, Muslim ban'” and that Watson’s earlier temporary order needed to be extended. In early March, Watson ruled in favor of Hawaii, with the state saying Trump’s executive order, which would have suspended new visas for people from six Muslim-majority countries and paused the country’s refugee program, was discriminatory and would have hurt tourism.
