- Judge Theodore Chuang issues injunction against third version of ban
- White House called earlier decision by judge in Hawaii ‘dangerously flawed’
A second federal judge has blocked the Trump administration’s latest travel ban hours before it was set to take full effect.
Theodore Chuang,a US district judge in Maryland, granted a nationwide preliminary injunction late on Tuesday, after Derrick Watson, a US district judge in Hawaii, blocked the revised ban earlier that day. The ban sought to place travel restrictions on citizens of eight countries. The new restrictions had been slated to go into effect on Wednesday.
