Hawaii plans to fight President Trump’s ‘Muslim Ban 2.0’

by FOXNews.com
March 8, 2017

Attorneys for Hawaii are planning to file paperwork Wednesday to challenge President Trump’s revised travel ban, which goes into effect on March 16.

Lawyers for the state said they will move for a temporary restraining order on March 15, a day before the new executive order is supposed to take effect.

“This new executive order is nothing more than Muslim Ban 2.0,” Hawaii Attorney General Doug Chin said in a statement Monday. “Under the pretense of national security, it still targets immigrants and refugees. It leaves the door open for even further restrictions.”

The new order bars new visas for people from six predominantly Muslim nations and temporarily shuts down America’s refugee program, affecting would-be visitors and immigrants from Iran, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen and Libya.

    I got news for you, all of you the courts are below the Executive Branch, they don’t make the law they interpret it and make sure everything is within the law. The Constitution along with other laws gives our president the power to stop any people, form any place, at anytime for coming here if he deems them a threat. Seems that refugees are a threat, along with those who were naturalized we suffered 70 attacks altogether under O and only 30 reported.

    The president can by PROCLAMATION ONLY, like Carter did and O did stop anybody he wants and as to naturalized citizens you can have your citizenship revoked by doing anything against our country.

    All you smug people out there I can only hope for another attack on our doorsteps so you understand but they are too smart for that, they know better because that would push all of you stupid into the ditch.

    I hate stupid people. I really do.

    Of course we know most lawyers are scum, but these must be really foul!

      I am so sick of this. Trump needs to put out the Proclamation and stop all this just like Carter did and O did.

      Obama is wrong, Trump executive order on travel does not discriminate on the basis of religion

      Jan.
      30, 2017, Fairfax, Va.β€”Americans for Limited Government President Rick
      Manning today issued the following statement blasting former President Barack Obama’s statement via spokesperson Kevin Lewis that President Donald Trump’s executive order temporarily blocking travel from countries invoked by the 2015 exceptions to the visa waiver program stipulated under 8 U.S.C. Section 1187(a)(12),
      which include Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Yemen and Somalia,
      “discriminat[es] against individuals because of their faith or
      religion”:

      “The
      Trump executive order barring travel for 90 days from terror hotspots
      does not discriminate on the basis of religion, as Obama well knows. In
      2011 the State Department stopped processing refugees from Iraq for six
      months, not because of religion, but after the FBI caught al Qaeda terrorists in Kentucky who had snuck into the country posing as refugees.
      It is a fact that Obama himself as president issued three so-called
      212(f) travels bans, as presidents have broad authority to do so under 8 U.S.C. Section 1182(f), which
      was never repealed by the 1965 Immigration Act and therefore can only
      be read as a presidential exception in order for the two statutes to be
      read consistently. That is out 16 such travel active bans that were issued by presidents over the years prior to Trump’s inauguration.

      “The
      law states explicitly the president may ‘suspend the entry of all
      aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose
      on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate,’
      the same broad authority Trump is now relying upon in addition to his
      grant of executive power under Article II of the Constitution.

      “There
      are about 50 majority Muslim countries throughout the world. The Trump
      travel ban affects seven, which are known terror hotspots. In
      confronting radical Islam, focusing on those regions most affected by
      the conflict is a common-sense place to start. In Nov. 2015, before then-candidate Trump issued his own statement on this issue, Americans for Limited Government urged an even broader travel ban
      than what Trump has issued in light of the Paris terrorist attacks.
      Addressing this issue is long overdue, and will grant the U.S. the time
      it needs to reevaluate its broken immigration system and refugee
      programs, and if necessary, to expand these efforts in order to best
      protect the American people.”

  • Bob says:

    How about we quit fear mongering and use the proper terms. this is NOT a Muslim ban. There are 57 countries which are Majority Muslim in the world. The TEMPORARY HALT to entrance visas effects only 6 countries, or10.5% of the COUNTRIES, not even 10% of the people. More importantly, it effects those countries that the Obama Administration found to support terrorism. And the halt is only for 90 to 120 days. If they LEFT would quit lying about the program and it’s intent, it would alleviate the fear. However, since it is the stated intention of the Democratic “leadership” in Congress to oppose this administration on everything, what more can you expect from the party of “Wah, No, wah”.

    How about lets put a ban on taking vacations to Hawaii.

      Have you ever visited Hawaii? Try to get an orange through the airport. They treat you like you’re bringing in a nuc. Yet let’s open the doors to all who wish to come in, regardless if they have and actual nuc or not.

      1. mudguy1 says:

        Yes, I said what I said because if the AG of Hawaii whats to fight Trump’s travel ban then we should stop going there.
        The Democrats will vet oranges better than they would vet Terrorist
