U.S. District Court Judge Derrick Watson of Hawaii has ruled against an emergency motion filed by Hawaii, which asked him to elucidate a portion of the US Supreme Court ruling that stated the people “with a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States” could enter the country.
The legal officials in Hawaii were looking for a good clarification about the “bona fide relationship”, but Judge Derrick Watson of Hawaii declared that those concerns were better addressed by the Judges in the Supreme Court.
After that the federal lawyers filed a request for emergency relief with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, needing a clarification to “enjoin the Government’s unlawful conduct” or “order the District Court to issue an order clarifying the scope of the injunction.”
According to the newly elected President Trump governmental decision, it is said that the
“ travel ban” exemption applies to citizens from six Muslim countries like Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen with a parent, spouse, child, adult son or daughter, son-in-law, daughter-in-law or sibling already in the country.
Hawaiian Attorney General Doug Chin also argued against the omission of the travel ban on the grandparents, aunts and uncles. He said that Judge Watson’s decision did not address the matter of either party’s argument.
U.S. District Court Judge Derrick Watson of Hawaii was originally ruled against the travel ban in March. But he determined to rule against the emergency motion and allowed the Supreme Court of US to make the final decision on the matter.
The Supreme Court of USA also ruled that some of the portions of the Trump administration’s “travel ban” could put into implement on the pending arguments scheduled for October.
