Washington asks judge to block new ban

"We are deeply concerned that the March 6, 2017, executive order halting refugee resettlement and suspending visa issuance and travel from six Muslim-majority countries will, like the prior version, weaken USA national security and undermine USA global leadership", reads the letter, dated Friday and delivered to Trump, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense James Mattis, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly and Michael Dempsey, acting director of national intelligence.

Ferguson said that he would review the decision with his legal team to determine the next step.

According to experts, the Hawaii court has to prove the revised travel ban still discriminates against Muslims on objective and thus violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.

Washington and Minnesota argued sections of the new order have the same effect as the original and the federal government can not decide unilaterally to change a court's previous ruling.

At least this time, the Trump administration subjected the executive order to careful legal vetting before the president signed it.

Hours after the man filed his new complaint Conley issued a temporary restraining order barring Trump's administration from enforcing the ban against the man's family, saying the family is in danger.

The letter said the new travel ban tells Muslims that the United States is an enemy of Islam.

The first order had also applied to citizens of Iraq but the country was dropped from the new list.

It now remains to be seen whether the second travel ban will run into legal obstacles similar to those faced by the first ban, which started with an executive order issued by Mr Trump in January. According to CNN, the revised travel ban goes into effect on March 16, which could complicate the matter However, if the U.S. Embassy does issue the wife and daughter visas, there should be no further complications to their entering the country.

Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson said Thursday he was asking a federal judge to find that his order last month halting the old travel ban applies to the new one, too.

Unlike the initial order, the new one says current visa holders won't be affected, and removes language that would give priority to religious minorities.

"President Trump's revised executive order is still a Muslim ban and it's still bigoted and un-American", said Rabbi Jack Moline, president of the Interfaith Alliance.
