Federal Court Blocks Donald Trump's Latest Travel Ban...AGAIN.

A federal court in Hawaii blocked President Donald Trump’s third and most extensive initiative to limit travel into the United States on Tuesday, just hours before it was set to go into effect.

The International Refugee Assistance Project, the Iranian Alliances Across Borders and various individual plaintiffs, including the state of Hawaii, filed lawsuits in Hawaii and Maryland after the travel ban ― which would indefinitely ban citizens from Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela and Yemen from entering the country ― was announced on Sept. 24. They view this ban as yet another thinly veiled attempt to target Muslims (six out of the eight countries on the list are Muslim-majority).

“EO-3 suffers from precisely the same maladies as its predecessor: it lacks sufficient findings that the entry of more than 150 million nationals from six specified countries would be ‘detrimental to the interests of the United States,’” the court order said. The ban also “plainly discriminates based on nationality in the manner that the Ninth Circuit has found antithetical to both Section 1152(a) and the founding principles of this Nation.”

Non-visa holders from most of the countries listed have already been banned for the last several months, after the Supreme Court ruled to allow parts of a previous travel ban to go into effect in June. The latest initiative removed Sudan from the list, and added Chad, North Korea It was planned to go into effect Wednesday.

The changes were interpreted by many as mere political posturing ― an attempt to make the ban appear less overtly targeted toward Muslims.

“This is the third time we feel compelled to ask the courts to block the President’s Muslim ban,” Becca Heller, head of the International Refugee Assistant Project, said Monday. “Each new version is just an updated version of the previous ones, and they all have one goal: to keep out people primarily from majority-Muslim countries. Any supposed national security goals are not based in fact. Instead, millions of people will be harmed indefinitely, including American families and institutions. We will not rest until this cruel and senseless policy is blocked for good.”
You'd think the moron in chief would get the hint at this point. #-o

The USSC tried very hard to duck this whole thing but it doesn't appear they will be able too....I have no idea which way 6 of the justices will rule.

And again, a second court reached nearly the same conclusion:

I'm curious why is this a good thing? Why don't these judges block the homesteading ban as well? Since they care so much for liberty of non americans.
