>> A federal judge in Wisconsin dealt the first blow to President Trump's new travel ban, with a ruling that would let a Syrian refugee bring his wife and three-year-old daughter to the US. The ruling in the form of a temporary restraining order came down Friday. The new travel ban restricting people from six Muslim-majority countries from travelling to the US, is set to go into effect on Thursday.
And since it was issued this week, several states have been lining up again to challenge it starting with Hawaii. On Friday Maryland's Attorney General saying it would join a lawsuit brought by Washington state and others. Also on Friday however, the Seattle district court refused to put an emergency halt to the travel ban, saying lawyers from states opposed to the measure.
Needed to file more extensive court papers. Washington State had challenged Trump's original executive order issued in January, which sought to restrict travel from seven Muslim-majority countries, and won a temporary restraining order order at the Seattle district court. While the Wisconsin judge, an appointee of former President Barack Obama, ruled against Trump's new executive order, he adds the case is limited to the individuals involved.
