Hawaii Federal Judge Halts Trump’s Latest Travel Ban

A federal judge in Hawaii blocked the implementation of the Trump administration’s third and latest iteration of its travel ban on Tuesday, the Washington Post reported. The ban, which was set to take effect on Wednesday, barred the entry of travelers from Syria, Libya, Iran, Yemen, Chad, Somalia, North Korea, and Venezuela. The decision from Judge Derrick K. Watson stops the ban temporarily at least, though there are still travel restrictions from North Korea and Venezuela. The previous two versions of Trump’s travel ban were also blocked by the courts.
