Hawaii will be the first state to sue over Trump’s travel ban 2.0. The state also sued over the first version of the ban.
Hawaii is stating that the ban will negatively affect its tourism, students, and Muslim population. Attorney General Douglas Chin said that:
“Hawaii is special in that it has always been non-discriminatory in both its history and constitution. Twenty percent of the people are foreign-born, 100,000 are non-citizens and 20 percent of the labor force is foreign-born.”
Hawaii’s government is spending $150,000 on legal assistance with the case, which will go to hearing on March 15. The revised order of the travel ban will go into effect on March 16.
