A United States federal judge has blocked President Trump's third travel ban limiting visitor to the US from eight countries.
The most recent ban was scheduled to go into effect in the early hours of Wednesday, October 18, barring travelers from Syria, Libya, Iran, Yemen, Chad, Somalia, North Korea and Venezuela. U.S. District Judge Derrick K. Watson in Hawaii's order stops it with respect to all the countries except North Korea and Venezuela.
Judge Watson wrote that the executive order “plainly discriminates based on nationality” in a way that is opposed to federal law and “the founding principles of this Nation.”
