Hawaii files challenge to Trump's new travel order
by Lydia Wheeler
Hawaii is filing a challenge to President Trump's new travel ban.
Attorneys for the state asked a federal district court judge late Tuesday to temporarily block the revised order Trump signed Monday.
In revising the executive order, Trump removed Iraq from the list of predominantly Muslim countries from which travel is temporarily banned, as well as provisions that banned Syrian refugees indefinitely and included current green card holders — changes meant to more easily defend the order in court.
