Zedd organizes concert to speak out against Trump's travel ban

Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson, joined in his lawsuit by heavily Democratic California, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York and OR, asked for a hearing with a federal judge in Seattle before the administration plans to implement the ban Thursday on new visas for people from six predominantly Muslim nations.

President Donald Trump's first executive order temporarily restricting travel from seven Muslim-majority countries and banning refugees was suspended in federal court.

California joins Washington, Maryland, New York, Oregon, Massachusetts and Minnesota in challenging the new version of the travel ban, which the Trump administration revised so that it would stand in court.

"The Trump administration may have changed the text of the now-discredited Muslim travel ban, but they didn't change its unconstitutional intent and effect", California Attorney General Xavier Becerra wrote.

Senior Advisor Kellyanne Conway appeared on "The O'Reilly Factor" to discuss the upcoming legal challenges.

As anticipated, the Trump administration argued that since the new order specifically protects legal usa residents, it doesn't have the harmful effects that Hawaii claims it does. They are asking a judge to halt the order along with Trump's move to lower the total number of refugees accepted by the US this year from 110,000 to 50,000.

This week, as the second act of Trump's immigration strategy plays out, his lawyers' revised travel plan is receiving fire from attorneys general in a growing list of states.

The U.S. Travel Assn., the trade group for the nation's $2.1-trillion travel industry, echoed Wooden's comments.

The revised travel ban is scheduled to go into effect on Thursday, March 16.

"I congratulate the Administration for modifying the original order to ensure that it is prospective in application, protective of those with valid visas and legal status, and exempts Iraqis, as five thousand Americans are now fighting alongside them against ISIL".
