A Hawaii federal judge blocked the latest iteration of Trump's travel ban, claiming it is discriminatory.

Watson wrote that the latest ban “suffers from precisely the same maladies as its predecessor: it lacks sufficient findings that the entry of more than 150 million nationals from six specified countries would be ‘detrimental to the interests of the United States.’”
He also wrote that the executive order “plainly discriminates based on nationality” in a way that was opposed to federal law and “the founding principles of this Nation.”

The ban would bar certain travelers from "Syria, Libya, Iran, Yemen, Chad, Somalia, North Korea and Venezuela" from entering the United States.

President Trump has consistently defended his travel ban, citing security concerns as his top priority.

But opponents of the travel ban argue not only is it unconstitutional, it will actually make Americans less safe.

Convicted terrorists support Trump’s travel ban because it sends a message that is consistent with their extremist propaganda. The reality is that the travel ban will not impact terrorists nor protect Americans. It is more likely to negatively impact good people who are simply trying to escape dangerous regimes and/or be reunited with family.

Critics of the ban argue it is nothing more than discrimination and the Trump administration is hypocritical for claiming to care about the safety of the nation.

But supporters of Trump believe the travel ban is necessary to keep America safe, and activist judges shouldn't put their own political beliefs above the security of America.
