Hawaii become first to sue Trump's revised travel ban

Hawaii become first to sue Trump's revised travel banHawaii gave notice Tuesday night that it intended to file an amended lawsuit to cover the new ban, which plans to go into effect March 16.

This is reported by Associated Press.

Attorneys for the state filed the lawsuit Wednesday in federal court in Honolulu. The state had previously sued over Trump's initial travel ban, but that lawsuit was put on hold while other cases played out across the country.

The revised executive order bars new visas for people from six predominantly Muslim countries and temporarily shuts down the U.S. refugee program. It doesn't apply to travelers who already have visas.

Hawaii's lawsuit says the order will harm Hawaii's Muslim population, tourism and foreign students.
