Blocking Trump

I'm sure this isn't the last we'll see of this kind of stuff.

Judge in Hawaii puts Trump’s travel ban on hold
(AP) — A federal judge in Hawaii has put President Donald Trump’s revised travel ban on hold.
U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson issued his ruling Wednesday after hearing arguments on Hawaii’s request for a temporary restraining order involving the ban.

His ruling prevents the executive order from going into effect Thursday.

More than half a dozen states are trying to stop the ban, and federal courts in Maryland, Washington state and Hawaii heard arguments Wednesday about whether it should be put into practice.

Hawaii argued that the ban discriminates on the basis of nationality and would prevent Hawaii residents from receiving visits from relatives in the six mostly Muslim countries covered by the ban.

The state also says the ban would harm its tourism industry and the ability to recruit foreign students and workers.
I can't say this was a surprise. I mean democrats/leftists and #NeverTrumper's have made it well known that they will do everything in their power to obstruct anything coming out of Trump's White House.
Even judge shopping.
It will take years to dig out the worms that Obama left burrowing their way into the judiciary.
