Hawaii Files Lawsuit to Block Trumpís New Immigration Executive Order
Legal Insurrection ^ | 03/08/2017 | Mary Chastain

Posted on 03/08/2017 1:58:52 PM PST by TheConservator

And there it is! Hawaii has become the first to file a lawsuit against President Donald Trump’s revised executive order on six nations. From The Hill:

“The Executive Order means that thousands of individuals across the United States and in Hawai‘i who have immediate family members living in the affected countries will now be unable to receive visits from those persons or to be reunited with them in the United States,”.

“It means that universities, employers, and other institutions throughout the United States and in Hawaii will be unable to recruit or to welcome qualified individuals from the six designated countries. It threatens certain non-citizens within the United States and in Hawaii with the possibility that they will be unable to travel abroad and return—for instance, because their visa only permits them one entry, or because their visa will have expired during the time the Executive Order is still in place.”

The newest order exempts Iraq and those who already hold visas. It halts citizens from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen from entering the country for 90 days. It will go into effect on March 16.

The new order only allows 50,000 admitted refugees. It also places Syria on the same level as everyone else while in the old order “indefinitely suspended the admission of Syrian refugees.”

Hawaii sued the Trump administration over the first order. The state wants the court to lift its old complaint and accept the amended one:

“To be sure, the new executive order covers fewer people than the old one,” Neal Katyal, one of the lead attorneys for Hawaii and former acting US solicitor general, explained in an interview with CNN. But in his view, the new travel ban still “suffers from the same constitutional and statutory defects.”

That used to be true, until the 9th Circuit got a hold of the first case.

You are correct except Hawaii is in the 9th circuit.

Is it true lots of the Islanders are racist? I’ve never been to Hawaii but my brother’s been twice and says all they do to the white man is give him dirty looks as if to say, “you’re not welcome here.”

Also, he said they are lazy asses and leech off the system. He said you go down any given neighborhood and a lot of the folk are out on their front porches kicking whilst drinking beer, etc.

FU Hawaii!

Agree. Some schlub district court judge, backed up by the notorious 9th Circuit, essentially overturned a congressional law that ordered the President to keep dangerous people out of the US.

I call it The Crisis at Hand.

I have been to Hawaii many times.

If they think that inviting hegira and jihad is going to enhance and attract tourism, their ONLY industry since Dole moved its pineapple farms to Costa Rica, they are in for an unpleasant surprise.
