New Trump Executive Order Stopped!

Just hours before President Trump’s new Executive Order or “Muslim Travel Ban” was to become effective, U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson in Hawaii issued a Temporary Restraining Order to stop the ban from being implemented on a national basis. The TRO was issued based on Judge Watson’s determination that the new Executive Order violated the Constitution’s First Amendment protections against religious discrimination and relied heavily on statements made by President Trump on the campaign trail and statements by Trump policy advisor Stephen Miller that the intent of the ban is to ban Muslims. President Trump vows to fight the ruling to the Supreme Court. Next stop: 9th Circuit Court of Appeals!
