Travel Ban Dispute Exposes American Rift

A senior legislator said the blockage of the third US federal government’s travel ban targeting Iran, among other countries, by a Hawaii court indicates state authorities are out of tune with the controversial US President Donald Trump’s hardened rhetoric against Tehran.
Trump’s third attempt to ban travel to the US by citizens of several countries was blocked by a federal judge in Hawaii on Tuesday, just hours before the executive order was to go into full effect on Wednesday.
“The opposition of [some] states to the travel ban shows the plan is not well thought outand that the states and federal government hold conflicting views about it,” Alaeddin Boroujerdi, the chairman of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, told ICANA on Wednesday.
After earlier orders by Trump in January and March were partially blocked by legal challenges, the White House issued another version on Sept. 24, targeting people from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Chad and North Korea, as well as certain government officials from Venezuela.
The ruling came in response to a lawsuit by the Hawaiian state government and other entities against the renewed measure.
