Federal judge halts the third version of Trump's Muslim Ban

8 monthes ago   |   By

President Donald Trump has now revised his Muslim ban twice, both times in efforts to rescue the ban from court decisions halting at least some of its provisions. On Tuesday, however, a federal judge held that Trump's latest efforts are not good enough.
