Hawaii sues to block Trump’s unconstitutional travel ban

US President Donald Trump’s immigration policies had faced a pair of new challenges on Wednesday.

The attorney general of Hawaii alleged that Donald Trump had violated the Constitution with his redrawn executive order banning travel from six predominantly Muslim countries and had requested immediate court intervention to halt the order.

Similarly, the city attorney of San Francisco asked a federal judge to issue an injunction blocking another executive order, which threatens to withdraw funding for sanctuary cities that do not extensively cooperate with federal immigration enforcement officials, The New York Times reported.

Doug Chin, Hawaii state attorney general, claimed that Trump’s new order would damage the state’s educational institutions and private businesses, including tourism industry, and discriminate against families with relatives overseas.

“This order brings back memories for a lot of people here. Any time you have an executive order or some government decision that’s calling out people by their nation of origin or by religion, we’ve got to be a check against that,” Chin said.

Earlier, a federal judge had put a hold on portions of US President Donald Trump’s executive order banning travel for tens of millions of people from seven Muslim-majority countries.
