A US judge in Hawaii has blocked the latest version of Trump's travel ban

Hours before the Trump administration’s travel ban was to take effect, a judge in Hawaii has temporarily blocked the ban, according to the Associated Press.

U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson granted Hawaii’s request to temporarily block the federal government from enforcing the policy. It was supposed to take effect at midnight EDT Wednesday.

Hawaii argues the updated ban is a continuation of President Donald Trump’s “promise to exclude Muslims from the United States.”
