About a dozen deputies from the US Marshals Service have been sent to provide 24-hour protection for the federal judge who implemented an emergency stop to a new version of President Donald Trump's controversial travel ban, according to Hawaii News Now.
Hawaii Attorney General Douglas Chin said in court papers Saturday that the easy implementation of the laptop policy belies any claim that Trump's "hands are tied" by litigation seeking to overturn the travel ban on the grounds that it discriminates against Islam.
"As the Court correctly explains, the President's Executive Order falls well within his authority to safeguard the nation's security", she said. In his Friday opinion, Trenga called the first version of the travel ban "a facially discriminatory order coupled with contemporaneous statements suggesting discriminatory intent".
Trump's executive order, signed March 6, was scheduled to go into effect earlier this month.
It more strictly looked at how the travel ban is worded in light of presidential power over immigration and national security. Authorities have said the ban is based on a credible terror threat.
The judge's decision, issued Friday in federal court in Alexandria, is even more sweeping in support of the administration.
But his 32-page decision goes far beyond that technical question, giving a major victory to the Trump administration and its authority to issue the order, which would temporarily ban immigration from six Muslim-majority countries and suspend the US refugee program. The ruling in Maryland is set to be heard before an appeals court in May. While the decision won't have any immediate effect, it is certain to be cited by administration lawyers as the cases move toward the U.S. Supreme Court. "Supreme Court weighing in on this matter, as those are the judicial bodies that will ultimately decide whether the Constitution protects the rights of Muslim Americans".
"The Department of Justice is pleased with the ruling", said Sarah Isgur Flores, a Justice Department spokesperson.
If the court does issue a preliminary injunction, the next step in permanently halting the order, the Justice Department has asked that it be limited to the 90-day travel ban affecting the six mostly Muslim countries.
Because we know there had to be one, a federal judge in Virginia ruled in favor of President Trump's revised travel ban, making the opposite decision of judges who have ruled before him and providing ammunition to Justice Department lawyers who are arguing in favor of the ban in several courts across the United States. And while the laptop ban, like the travel ban, can and does apply to people of other religious faiths, it seems clear that both will primarily adversely affect Muslims.
