Federal Judge Not Ready to Rule on Revised Travel Ban

In an announcement [press release] Monday, Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson said California is the latest state to join in opposition to the order, with Maryland, Massachusetts and NY also seeking permission to join the lawsuit.

Immigrant rights groups asked the Washington District Court to again enjoin the Trump Administration's "Muslim Ban" executive order.

The experts said they were heartened that Iraq was removed from the 90-day travel ban, as the country was included in Trump's first executive order. Hawaii has launched its own lawsuit, reports the Boston Globe.

The second travel ban proposed by the Trump administration, redesigned to better withstand legal challenges, is just as likely as the previous ban to reduce travel to the US, industry representatives say. Like the first order - which suspended the refugee program, blocked citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the country, and resulted in the provisional revocation of tens of thousands of visas - it has encountered significant legal resistance.

U.S. District Judge William Conley on Friday issued the temporary restraining order that applies only to the woman and child.

The Trump Administration may have changed the text of the now-discredited Muslim travel ban, but they didn't change its unconstitutional intent and effect.

The first version of the order, signed by Trump on January 27, triggered howls of protest at home and overseas as well as chaos at U.S. airports as some people were detained upon arrival and either held for hours or sent back where they came from.

While the new order contains changes, the basic legal problems remain, said Washington's attorney general, Bob Ferguson.

Hours after the man filed his new complaint Conley issued a temporary restraining order barring Trump's administration from enforcing the ban against the man's family, saying the family is in danger.

Robart said in an order that motions or a complaint over the revised ban need to be filed before he can make a decision on the new travel restrictions. Chaos ensued, with confusion over the dictates of Trump's order playing out at the nation's airports, which saw repeated protests.

Hawaii "is merely guessing" about what the order might mean to the state and is engaging in "mere speculation" when it argues that the executive order will interfere with recruitment by state universities and harm tourism, the government said. The attorneys' general of four other states have also announced their intention to sue.

The Justice Department declined to comment to CNN on the status of any ongoing litigation. Unlike the first order, the new ban would not affect current visa holders and removes language that would give priority to religious minorities.

Robart initially put a stay on the first travel ban, which was immediately appealed to the Ninth Circuit.
