Describing 17 October’s ruling of Derrick Watson, a Hawaiian Judge, The White House said that blocking travel ban of Donald Trump was ‘dangerously flawed’ and added that it weakens the efforts of the president to keep Americans safe.
Meanwhile, in line with the order of the court, the State Department has instructed US embassies to begin processing of visa applications of nationals of Syria, Yemen Libya, Chad, Iran and Somalia. The Associated Press said but the presidential guidelines will be followed by the State Department to process visa applications of North Koreans and Venezuelans.
The US Department of Justice felt that the ruling was incorrect and neglects to rightly respect the separation of powers.
On the other hand, Doug Chin, Hawaii Attorney General, termed the ruling of the judge another triumph for the rule of law.
Judge Watson, in his ruling, stated that the third version of the ban does not have adequate findings that when 150 million citizens from six designated countries enter the United States, it hurts the country’s interests.
In fact, the second version of the Trump’s travel ban was also blocked by Judge Watson, who, at that time, said the ruling was not constitutional as it targeted people on the basis of their religion.
