A federal judge in Hawaii issued a nationwide order on Wednesday evening blocking President Trump’s decree banning travel from parts of the Muslim world. The decision deals a political blow to the White House and signals that proponents of the ban face a long and risky legal battle ahead.
The ruling is the second frustrating defeat for Mr. Trump’s travel ban, after a federal court in Seattle halted an earlier version of the executive order last month. Mr. Trump responded with fury to that setback, lashing out at the judiciary before ultimately abandoning the order.
