Trump ban blocked again

US President Donald Trump is having great difficulty implementing his proposed ban on inbound travellers from certain countries, with a second attempt also blocked by a number of courts across America. The ban would stop travel into the US by citizens of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, as well as impose a 120-day pause on all refugee resettlements. However a Hawaiian judge ruled that the ban was discriminatory, and refused to scale back his ruling, despite requests from the
administration.

The legal battle over the constitutionality of the ban looks set to continue, with a number of other courts also hearing cases about the proposal. For his part Trump remains undaunted, describing the rulings as “unprecedented judicial overreach” and promising to take the case “all the way up to the Supreme Court” if necessary.
