>> Thank you so much, Peter, thank you all.>> The number of states lining up to challenge President Trump's revised travel ban is growing. New York, Washington, Minnesota, Oregon, and Massachusetts, Thursday announcing plans to use the courts to fight against a new travel ban rolled out this week, aimed at restricting visitors from six majority Muslim countries.
00:00:19
Washington is the state to watch, says Reuters Legal Correspondent Mica Rosenberg.>> Washington state was one of the first states to challenge Trump's original ban, and they succeeded in getting a judge in Seattle to put an emergency stop to the order altogether. That was upheld by a Federal Appeals Court.
00:00:38
So now, Washington says it's going back to court to say, the new ban is basically the same thing, and we think that emergency halt should still apply.>> Hawaii, however, is the first out of the gate, winning an okay from a US District Court judge Wednesday to move ahead with its challenge.
00:00:54
But like the other states, its case is gonna face some hurdles.>> They need to prove that somebody has been harmed by the order, it's called standing. And part of the issue is that in the revisions, the administration put a lot of waivers and a lot of exemptions, and so it's more narrowly tailored.
00:01:13
So a court is going to have to decide who is actually harmed by this order and if they have standing to sue in court.>> The White House's revised ban is set to go into effect on March 16th, a day after Hawaii's lawsuit is scheduled to be heard before the court.
