So Hawaii has already filed a lawsuit against Trump’s second formulation of the travel ban, and three other states have jumped on the lawsuit-wagon.
Democratic attorneys general in three states announced Thursday they will push for a temporary halt on the Trump administration’s ban on travel from several Muslim-majority countries to remain intact under the president’s revised executive order.
…Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson (D) said Thursday his office will file a motion asking Robart to reaffirm that the order applies to the new version of the travel ban, which is scheduled to go into effect next Thursday, March 16.
…New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (D) and Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum (D) will join Washington in challenging the new ban.
“President Trump’s latest executive order is a Muslim ban by another name, imposing policies and protocols that once again violate the Equal Protection Clause and Establishment Clause of the United States Constitution,” Schneiderman said in a statement.
So there you go. They’re going to have to defend it in court before he can ever actually get it into place, and he better hope that this one was better written than the first.
