News Release from Hawaii AG, Oct 30, 2017

HONOLULU – The states of California, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, and Washington today filed a motion to intervene as parties in the travel ban lawsuit brought by Hawaii against President Trump’s third travel ban. In today’s motion to intervene, the 6 states side with Hawaii’s position that the travel ban is illegal and unconstitutional.

Hawaii Attorney General Doug Chin stated, “Hawaii is not the only state to be negatively impacted by this discriminatory order. Attorneys general from states throughout the U.S. have objected to the President’s travel ban in all of its forms from day one. Hawaii has stood side-by-side with these states in opposing the various forms of this travel ban from the beginning.”

On September 24, 2017, President Trump issued a proclamation creating an indefinite ban on travel that targeted an overwhelmingly Muslim population. On October 17, 2017, a Hawaii federal district court judge ordered a nationwide injunction against the travel ban, hours before it was set to go into effect. The Trump administration has appealed to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
