Hawaii has become the first US state to request an emergency order halting President Donald Trump’s revised travel restrictions, or in the words of its attorney general, ‘Muslim Ban 2.0’.
Doug Chin argues the second version of the controversial executive order violates the constitution and is, fundamentally, no different to the first.
“Essentially what you have is you still have a blanket ban against entry from people who are from different nations. It used to be seven. The biggest problem with that is you have an order that’s discriminating against people based on their nation of origin. Or based upon their religion,” said Chin.
