Trump issued a Muslim Ban. Courts, including upon the urging of the State of Hawaii, struck it down. Trump issued another Muslim Ban. The Supreme Court limited it, per Hawaii's request. Trump issued a third Muslim Ban. The Supreme Court threw out arguments over the second one. Now, Hawaii is back at it: The state has filed an amended complaint to challenge Trump’s latest version of its Muslim Ban. The state’s attorney general stated, “Hawaii fought the first and second travel bans because they were illegal and unconstitutional efforts to implement the President’s Muslim ban. Unfortunately, the third travel ban is more of the same.” The Trump Administration has done its part in annoying the Aloha State. In early April, Jeff Sessions III dismissed a federal injunction by stating, “I really am amazed that a judge sitting on an island in the Pacific can issue an order that stops the President of the United States….” That comment, however, seems to just be foreshadowing how the Administration views another island, which just has happens to be part of the United States, to the great annoyance of the president himself.
