Federal Judge Limits Trump Administration Travel Ban Enforcement Rules

The state of Hawaii is again urging a federal judge to clarify his block of President Trump's travel ban.

A federal judge in Hawaii has put new limits on the Trump administration's travel ban on people from six mostly Muslim countries, allowing travel for grandparents, grandchildren, and other family members of people in the United States.

'Indeed grandparents are the epitome of close family members'.

Rosenberg may be conflating the portion of Watson's injunction that protects refugees, which the Supreme Court left intact, with the injunction against the 120-day ban on immigrants from six Muslim-majority countries, which the Supreme Court overturned.

US District Court Judge Derrick Watson - who originally blocked the travel ban back in March - said the Trump administration's interpretation of the Supreme Court's decision defied common sense.

In another setback for President Donald Trump, a federal judge in Hawaii has further weakened his already diluted travel ban by vastly expanding the list of family relationships with US citizens that visa applicants can use to get into the U.S.

There was a storm delay at 4:29 p.m. with play resuming on a soggy course at 6:34 p.m. amid occasional showers. Yang also shot 31 on the back nine, but she played it second after an even-par 36 on the front side.

Chin says, "Family members have been separated and real people have suffered enough" under the ban. "We will continue preparing for arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in October".

Rosenberg countered that an assurance from a refugee resettlement agency does not constitute a bona fide relationship and that resettlement is contingent upon a contract between the agency and the government.

Mr Trump's ban on travel to the United States for people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen has been controversial since its announcement.

Hawaii filed a renewed request to expand the list. "Common sense, for instance, dictates that close family members be defined to include grandparents".

"'Bona fide" does not get any more "bona fide' than that", Watson said. He rejected a request to categorically exempt all Iraqis refugee applicants who believe they are at risk due to their work for the USA government since March, 2003, as interpreters and translators, for instance.

"What is clear from the Supreme Court's decision is that this Court's analysis is to be guided by consideration of whether foreign nationals have a requisite "connection" or "tie" to this country", Watson wrote. The judge said the ban had interpreted the Supreme Court ruling too narrowly.
