Obama Appointed Federal Judge Indefinitely Extends Restraining Order Against Trump Travel Ban

In early March, Trump’s revised immigration order was was put on hold only hours before it was set to take effect by an Obama appointed far left judge. Judge Derrick Watson produced a 43 page ruling just 2 hours after the case was heard in his court.

On Wednesday Judge Watson indefinitely extended his restraining order on President Trump’s temporary travel ban from terror states.

CNBC reported:

A U.S. federal judge in Hawaii has indefinitely extended a court order blocking the enforcement of President Donald Trump’s revised travel ban.

The decision, which was published Wednesday by Judge Derrick Watson officially converted a temporary restraining order to a “preliminary injunction.”

Here’s the judge’s description of what that means:

It is hereby ADJUDGED, ORDERED, and DECREED that: Defendants and all their respective officers, agents, servants, employees, and attorneys, and persons in active concert or participation with them, are hereby enjoined from enforcing or implementing Sections 2 and 6 of the Executive Order across the Nation. Enforcement of these provisions in all places, including the United States, at all United States borders and ports of entry, and in the issuance of visas is prohibited, pending further orders from this Court.

Hawaii is arguing that the order, which restricts travelers and refugees from six Muslim-majority countries, discriminated against Muslims in violation of the U.S. Constitution.
