    Hawaii to Challenge Trump’s New Travel Ban

    Hawaii will be the first state to sue the federal government over President Donald Trump’s latest travel ban executive order. In a Tuesday filing, the state announced its intention to file for a temporary restraining order blocking the ban. Hawaii is planning to file for the restraining order Wednesday. Unlike the previous ban, which affected refugees from seven Muslim-majority countries, the new ban does not apply to Iraqi immigrants. But Neal Katyal, a lead attorney for the state of Hawaii, told CNN that the new ban “suffers from the same constitutional and statutory defects” as the previous executive order. Hawaii lawyers have asked judges to expedite the case before the new order goes into effect March 16.
