Hawaii has been against President Trump’s travel ban from the start. Judge Derrick Watson once again has ruled against the 90-day travel ban but this time he’s going straight for the heart.
Judge Watson is an old friend of Barack Obama and whatever he can do to make Trump’s life a living hell, he’s going to do from the bench. He thinks he’s found a loophole in the Supreme Court ruling and language of Trump’s 90-day travel ban.
It will be great to see how President Trump responds when he returns from France.
Watson utilizes an old trick of the Democrat of directing his ruling from an emotional position dealing with the heart. He essentially has defanged the ruling by allowing grandparents, grandchildren, brothers and sisters-in-law, aunts and uncles and so on.

Specifically, the judge’s ruling strikes down one of the key “clarifications” issued by the State Department following the SC ruling: That a “bonda fide” family relationship was limited to immediate family only. Here’s the Wall Street Journal.
“Judge Watson said the Trump administration’s ban implementation after the high court ruling tilted the scale too far in its favor and against those travelers with US family connections. He ordered that the ban not apply to “grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins of persons in the United States.”
The judge also ruled that the US can’t turn away refugees who have already been granted formal resettlement agreements.
“Judge Watson also loosened some Trump administration restrictions on what type of US relationships qualify to exempt refugees from the ban. The judge said refugees aren’t subject to the ban if they are covered by a formal admissions agreement between the U.S. government and a refugee resettlement agency.”

I guess the silence from this court for the last couple of weeks dealt with a lot of research into this subject to come up with this ruling.
