Wednesday an order that blocks the enforcement of President Trump's revised travel ban from six mostly Muslim countries from entering the U.S. has now been turned into a preliminary injunction. The United States District Judge from the state of Hawaii, Derrick Watson, is now challenging President Donald Trump's revised travel ban as unconstitutional religious discrimination.

In an attempt to stop Muslims from entering the U.S. Donald Trump issued yet another travel ban, his revised ban, enacted on March 6 that provoked protests around the world and chaos throughout major U.S.

airports. In spite of the upheaval it caused and the many lives it disrupted, President Trump insisted the ban was a necessary national security step to protect American's from Muslim nations. In February, however, a Washington judge temporally stopped the enforcement of the travel ban, until it was overturned last month.

Universities in Hawaii will suffer

Hawaii claims the travel ban causes recruiting difficulties for its state universities when trying to entice students and hire faculty. The state also makes claims that Hawaii’s economy would suffer significantly should there be a decline in tourism due to the revised travel ban. Court papers indicate that travel throughout the United States dropped dramatically after Donald Trump's ban went into effect.

Joining the state of Hawaii in this preliminary injunction is Ismail Elshikh – an American citizen from Egypt. Elshikh has a mother-in-law living in Syria and is an imam at the Muslim Association of Hawaii. Other Muslim American's living in Hawaii claim Trump's motive is to keep his campaign promise to “shut down Muslims entering the U.S.”

Ban violates religious freedom

Watson wrote that the courts will not pretend it does not see what is really going on.

That granting the preliminary injunction, Watson said, was based on Hawaii proving the travel ban violates the religious freedom protection as clearly stated in the United States Constitution.

President Donald Trump has promised he will take the state of Hawaii's injunction case to the Supreme Court.
