Late last night a federal judge in Hawaii issued an Order scaling back the Trump administration’s implementation of the Travel Order.

The judge disagreed with the Trump administration as to who would be considered a “close familial relationship” under the Supreme Court’s ruling. The Hawaii judge ruled that “grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts,...

A federal judge in Hawaii has just granted in part, and denied in part, the State of Hawaii’s motion to enforce an injunction issued prior to the Supreme Court ruling as to Trump’s Travel Order No. 2. The key issue was who would be considered to have a “bona fide” connection...
