Washington state to challenge Trump's decree

Published on 12 Oct 2017, 8:33
The US state of Washington is seeking to challenge the latest travel ban introduced by President Donald Trump.
The state attorney general is asking a federal judge to lift his stay halting the state's case against Trump's travel ban. Lifting the stay will allow it to challenge the third version of the ban before it takes effect later this month. The Trump administration issued a declaration in September, outlining the most recent restrictions, which affect citizens of Chad, Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, North Korea, and some Venezuelan officials. Sudan was delisted after lobbying by Saudi Arabia. The additional measures to limit travel to the U-S were introduced after a broad ban that sparked chaos and protests in the U-S in January and challenges in courts across the country.
