New Muslim Ban (Same As the Old) Blocked in Federal Court
A federal judge in Hawaii blocked President Donald Trump's new travel ban on Wednesday afternoon, hours before the ban was set to go into effect.
The ruling -- which applies nationwide -- means that travelers from six Muslim-majority countries and refugees will be able to travel to the US.
US District Court Judge Derrick Watson concluded that the new executive order still failed to pass legal muster.
"The illogic of the Government's contentions is palpable. The notion that one can demonstrate animus toward any group of people only by targeting all of them at once is fundamentally flawed," Watson wrote.
