Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson files new complaint, seeks travel-ban hearings

Trump's New Travel Ban Beating a Dead Horse Trump's New Travel Ban Beating a Dead Horse

Trump's first ban barred citizens of Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen for 90 days, all refugees for 120 days and Syrian citizens indefinitely.

Washington concedes that the new order no longer covers green card holders.

Herring has joined attorneys general from 13 other states in filing a brief in support of Hawaii's bid to halt enforcement of President Donald Trump's revised travel ban.

President Donald Trump's first executive order temporarily restricting travel from seven Muslim-majority countries and banning refugees was suspended in federal court. But the family doesn't have dates for the interviews yet and Trump's new travel ban goes into effect March 16, stirring fears that the process could halt again before visas are issued, according to the Syrian man's attorneys. He said he's had his days in court with the first travel ban - and he won "each time".

The U.S. Justice Department is defending the ban.

Federal judges will weigh the president's powers to secure the nation from terrorists against the constitutional rights of foreigners in the United States. "Furthermore, based on DHS data and the experience of its operators, nationals from these countries are more likely to overstay their visas and are harder to remove to their home countries".

He set a March 21 date for a full hearing of the case.

Ferguson said he was pleased that attorneys general from NY and OR had sought to take part in the legal action.

On Friday, U.S. District Court Judge James Robart declined to rule on Ferguson's new request.

President Trump's second attempt at a temporary travel ban targeting majority Muslim countries goes into effect Thursday - and faces a second round of legal attempts to thwart it.

The White House reworked the first executive order to address some of the issues that came up in court.

Hawaii-bound flight diverted to LAX after passenger complains about $12 blanket
An HA Plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Los Angeles after passenger threatened staff member over renting a blanket. Da Silva said the plane will be refueled and will land in Honolulu later today, but he did not know exactly when.

The Washington case has become the focal point of resistance to Trump's revised order with the Democratic states of Minnesota and OR already part of the challenge and the states of New York, Maryland, Massachusetts and California requesting to join the legal action.

The Justice Department declined to comment to CNN on the status of any ongoing litigation.

Despite those changes, Washington argues TRO is still in effect.

"After spending more than a month to fix a broken order that he rushed out the door, the President's new order reinstates several of the same provisions and has the same illegal motivations as the original".

The original travel ban, issued January 27, sparked protests at airports across the country, including at Honolulu International Airport.

Judge Robart has ordered the government to respond to the arguments put forward by the six states by late Tuesday, and said a new hearing would take place Wednesday at the earliest.

But critics say the order essentially remains a ban on Muslims and therefore unconstitutional as it singles out people of a certain religion for discriminatory treatment.

The parliamentarian noted that the public opinion about Trump has been negatively influenced by his latest decision and should the USA judicial system adopt a wise approach, the reaction against the new decision will be similar to the one against his last order.

In the current political climate, making the case for expanded immigration - from any country - is, tragically, a nonstarter.

A restraining order from any of the three courts could deal Mr Trump another significant setback in fulfilling a watered down version of his campaign promise to ban all Muslims from entering America. "However, having said that, I think it's important to remember that we as Muslims contribute to this community and to this country". At least five state attorneys general are planning to do that on Monday.
