A growing number of states challenging Trump’s revised ban is showing up every day…
After scraping the revised executive order to ban citizens form a selected number of Islamic nations by the state of Hawaii, five more states followed the suit to boost this now nationwide call.
Washington was the one to play the most significant part in suspending the first ban that trump’s administration applied. The other five states to seek a temporary restraining order (TRO) from the federal court are Oregon, New York, Minnesota and Massachusetts, which all filed their respective complaints.
Back on Monday, California was the state to join the other six states, admitting that a large fraction of its constituents will be affected by the ban.
The California’s attorney general Xavier Becerra told the press: “The Trump Administration may have changed the text of the now-discredited Muslim travel ban, but they didn’t change its unconstitutional intent and effect,”
The official implementation of Trump’s revised ban was on Thursday, March 16, 2017. The administration maintains its stance on the matter, saying that the new policies it wants to implement are indisputably constitutional and they only aim to protect the country from all forms of terrorist attacks.
