The federal District Court in Hawaii has enjoined the third version of President Donald Trump’s executive actions banning immigration and travel from Muslim-majority countries, which was to go into effect on October 18. Although this third version was based on additional review and findings by federal departments and agencies, U.S. District Court Judge Derrick Watson found that the conclusions from that review were inconsistent, and insufficient to overcome the often-repeated campaign pledge of then candidate Trump to ban Muslims from the U.S. The court continued to reference tweets by the President about the litigation about the second executive order, which had been enjoined by this court and another court in Maryland, as the true intent of these executive actions, undermining the legal rationales being argued in court.
