Hawaii wasted no time in filing a lawsuit seeking to block President Trump’s executive order on immigration and refugees. They care nothing about national security or protecting people from the possible terrorists attacks. Like every other liberal, they value foreigners over American citizens.
Lawyers for the State of Hawaii on Wednesday asked a federal judge to temporarily block President Trump’s revised executive order on immigration. The move could signal a wave of lawsuits expected to follow over the constitutionality of the proposal.
Hawaii’s Attorney General Doug Chin, a Democrat, filed the legal challenge in federal distict court in Hawaii. Lawyers for the state argued that “the new executive order is resulting in the establishment of religion in the State of Hawaii contrary to its state Constitution.”
The filing also says the revised ban will damage Hawaii’s “economy, educational institutions, and tourism industry; and it is subjecting a portion of the state’s citizens to second-class treatment and discrimination, while denying all Hawaii residents the benefits of an inclusive and pluralistic society.”
Lawyers for the state said they will move for a temporary restraining order on March 15, a day before the new executive order is supposed to take effect.
