Hawaii to become first state to challenge Trump's revised travel ban

Written by  CBS News

HONOLULU -- Hawaii is planning a challenge to President Donald Trump’s revised travel ban. A motion filed in federal court on Tuesday in Honolulu says the state wants to amend its existing lawsuit challenging Mr.

Trump’s previous order.

The new order bars new visas for people from six Muslim-majority countries and temporarily shuts down America’s refugee program, affecting would-be visitors and immigrants from Iran, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen and Libya. Hawaii’s lawsuit had been on hold while a nationwide injunction on the initial ban remained in place. Hawaii plans to file its amended lawsuit on Wednesday. According to the motion, attorneys for the government had no position on the request to file the amended lawsuit.

State Attorney General Doug Chin has called the order, issued Monday, “nothing more than Muslim ban 2.0,” CBS affiliate KGMB reports.

In a filing in federal court Tuesday, the state said it intended to seek a temporary stay to the new order. The motion could be heard as early as March 15, a day before the revised ban goes into effect.

Unfortunately, the citizens of Hawaii had nothing to do with BHO birth certificate debacle, however, it opens the door for faking other birth certificates. Now , there may be a tourism boycott, that could destroy the islands. Citizens, take back your islands!!! This a travel ban to protect you.

So, the state that said they have a "real" birth certificate for Barack Obama and Loretta Fuddy who put one out that was proven to be fake, is now dead from a suspicious plane crash. The only one who died and was wearing a life jacket and clinging to another person but is now dead. It is said that she paid off her mortgage and made large deposits into her account and now she is dead! I guess they really love illegal immigrants and will provide them with the necessary birth records as they obviously did for Obama. Watch out citizens of Hawaii, you might be in danger if you speak out on Obama.

Where were all these challenges when Obummer issued his travel ban. Therefore the courts should throw out all lawsuits, what changed?

Truly amazing how many complete and total morons there are in the country!!!!! Everyone of these shit for brains liberal idiots protesting need to have ONE or TWO poor refugees go home and live with them for 30-60 days. Bleeding heart 'tards, deserve everything they get if a terrorist does them harm. They'd be the first ones whining and crying for help and to them just say F OFF!!!! You want this trash in your state just as long s it's not in your very own home or backyard.

There are 57 Muslim majority countries. If you think that living with Muslims is so great, move to any one of these places.

Man oh man, the Socialist liberal states (Hawaii, California, Oregon, Washington) just keep on fighting the common sense approach to national security over and over. And what do you think they'll be crying about when ISIS hits them next? What's that old saying about "you can lead a horse to water...?"

Court decisions have repeatedly confirmed that the President has the authority to ban anyone at any time and for as long as he sees fit from entering this nation. Additionally, perhaps some of these Leftist a$$holes could show me where in our Constitution it states that we are required to permit ANYONE to EVER enter this nation. Hint: there is no requirement.

Maybe everyone who agrees with the ban should boycott the state of Hawaii. See how much money they lose by not having us Visit their state. Seems to work for liberal's who boycott places for not baking a cake for two men or women to marry. Runs them out of business ruins them for life.

The ban essentially effects sixgovernment country's for a temporary period, refugees from other counties are welcome under existing government rules. Why the misnomer referring to all refugees?
