Another federal judge halts Trump’s 2nd attempt at travel ban

(USA TODAY) President Trump’s temporary travel ban targeting six majority-Muslim countries was dealt another blow Thursday after a federal judge in Maryland suspended a portion of the ban that prevented visas being issued to nationals of the six countries.

The Maryland decision follows a ruling by a federal judge in Hawaii on Wednesday, although it is narrower in scope.

In the Hawaii ruling, U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson issued a nationwide halt to the ban that would have barred new visas and prevented the admission of new refugees. It was a stinging rebuke of Trump’s second attempt to institute the controversial order just hours before it was to take effect.
