Earlier in March, federal Judge Derrick Watson issued a restraining order against President Trump’s second Muslim travel ban.
On Wednesday, he extended the restraining order, saying that it was necessary in order to prevent discrimination.
Watson converted the original restraining order into a “preliminary injunction.”
“It is hereby ADJUDGED, ORDERED, and DECREED that: Defendants and all their respective officers, agents, servants, employees, and attorneys, and persons in active concert or participation with them, are hereby enjoined from enforcing or implementing Sections 2 and 6 of the Executive Order across the Nation. Enforcement of these provisions in all places, including the United States, at all United States borders and ports of entry, and in the issuance of visas is prohibited, pending further orders from this Court,” said Watson.
By issuing the order, Watson is suggesting that Trump somehow violated the rights of Muslims by issuing the travel ban.
However, what Watson forgot to mention is that the travel ban was put into place in order to protect American citizens from terrorism.
