Federal judge in Hawaii extends court order blocking Trump travel ban

Posted April 05, 2017

A US appeals court said on Monday it would hold a hearing in May over a Hawaii federal judge's order that blocked President Donald Trump's revised travel restrictions on citizens from six Muslim-majority countries.

Despite the changes, two federal judges ruled the revised ban does not appear to be constitutional.

The brief urges judges to reject a request by the Trump administration to let the ban take effect while the court considers its appeal. The Department of Justice filed a motion yesterday asking US District Judge Derrick Watson to pause proceedings in Hawaii's lawsuit pending resolution of the government's appeal.

Three judges will examine a Hawaii-based judge's order blocking the President's travel ban, which would bar citizens of Somalia, Libya, Syria, Sudan, Yemen and Iran from entering the USA for 90 days and put a halt to all refugee resettlement for 120 days. But it notes that the motion should not be used as the basis to do the same for any other lawsuits relating to the travel ban.

Watson said Hawaii has shown that the ban will harm the state's universities and tourism industry as well as the imam of a Honolulu mosque.

The revised order removed restrictions on holders of visas and green cards but still targeted predominantly Muslim nations.
