Hawai‘i to Pursue Legal Action on Travel Ban

Posted March 8, 2017, 08:40 AM HST

Hawai‘i Attorney General Doug Chin confirmed yesterday, March 7, 2017, that the State of Hawai‘i intends to pursue legal action regarding President Donald Trump’s new travel ban, which was issued on Monday, March 6.

The state, together with the Department of Justice, asked Judge Derrick K. Watson for an expedited briefing schedule on a motion for a temporary restraining order. If Judge Watson agrees, this schedule will allow the court to hear the state’s motion before the new travel ban goes into effect on March 16, 2017.

The state anticipates filing a second amended complaint and a motion for temporary restraining order in the near future. Those documents will be available to the public after they have been filed in court.

Shylo Saragosa This guy needs out. If you're not interested in American lives you shouldn't hold public office. This isn't some right wing conspiracy, the ideology of Islam is entirely incompatible with Western values, let alone human rights in general! Why aren't people seeing this??? I really don't get it. The libs and democrats are being nothing but "usefull idiots", to the one and only goal of Islam ~the advancement of Islam!!😡😡😢😢March 09, 2017 03:20am
