President Trump's revised travel ban faces new challenges

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Several challenges are being made to President Trump's travel ban.

The latest is from Hawaii's attorney general.

He filed a lawsuit claiming the ban harms Hawaii's ethnic diversity and its welcoming reputation as the Aloha state.

In Maryland, a federal judge says he'll issue a ruling on a challenge to the ban before it takes effect Thursday.

The Seattle federal judge who blocked President Trump's original travel ban will also hear a new challenge.

An immigrant rights group says this version discriminates against Muslims and raises the same legal issues as the original.

The Trump administration says it believes its revised order is legal.
