U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i) released the following statement on U.S. District Court Judge Derrick Watson’s ruling today granting Hawai‘i’s request to block President Donald Trump’s revised Muslim ban.

“Judge Watson properly concluded that President Trump’s second executive order continues to target Muslims, and is, in fact, a Muslim ban. I commend the State of Hawai‘i for taking swift action against this unconstitutional order as well as Judge Watson for stopping its implementation. It’s time for President Trump to stop violating the Constitution, and to rescind this latest effort to promote religious bigotry.”
