Here's How to Comply With the Travel Ban

Updated on

Hawaii says President Donald Trump’s latest attempt to restrict foreigners’ travel to the U.S. is just the latest outgrowth of his stated aim to enact a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the country.

The state asked a federal judge in Honolulu Tuesday for permission to challenge the third iteration of the president’s travel ban, scheduled to go into effect Oct. 17. Hawaii said the latest ban, like its precursors, is unconstitutional. It will also impair the state’s tourism industry, prevent the University of Hawaii from recruiting qualified individuals and undermine its refugee resettlement program.
