Federal judge keeps in place Trump's travel ban rules following challenge from Hawaii


Recommended Posts


A federal judge has denied Hawaii's request to clarify the scope of the Supreme Court's lifting of the blockade against President Trump's travel ban.
The ruling Thursday evening by U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson leaves in place the Trump administration's rules regarding what classes of people to exempt from the travel ban.
Trump's ban, implemented by a revised executive order, sought to prevent nationals from six Muslim-majority countries — Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen — from entering the U.S. for 90 days and some refugees from all countries for 120 days.
