Two judges have ruled against Donald Trump revised travel ban. The judges in Hawaii and Maryland determined that the ban is discriminatory against Muslims and request a nationwide halt.
Judge Derrick K. Watson in Honolulu Hawaii shared that any “reasonable, objective observer” would see this ban “issued with a purpose to disfavor a particular religion, in spite of its stated, religiously neutral purpose.”
The Maryland judge did not rule it out completely but granted a preliminary injunction. He argued that Trump had not proven that the ban was helpful to the security of the nation.
Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson elaborated.
“What we’re looking at is what Donald Trump said when he was running for president. He said he wanted to create a Muslim ban.” He added that the “strong evidence that the intent behind these executive orders was actually less about national security, and more about a Muslim ban.”
