A Hawaiian judge has temporarily suspended U.S. President Donald Trump’s revised travel ban before it was to go into effect on Thursday.
Judge Derrick Watson granted the emergency suspension as lawsuits are filed across the country against the ban, citing its discrimination against Muslims as unconstitutional.
The ban would ban immigration from 6 Muslim-majority countries, including Libya and Syria, and would suspend the Syrian refugee program.
President Trump has repeatedly denounced efforts to halt his travel bans, the first of which was thrown out by a federal judge, with an appeal also rejected. He claims that the bans would help ensure national security.
Donald Trump said that the temporary suspension “made [the United States] look weak.”
He is expected to appeal any suspension of the ban.
