Hawaii Challenges Trump’s Refugee Order, Takes No Refugees

Hawaii filed a challenge in federal court to President Donald Trump’s new executive order on refugee and migrant entry to the U.S. Wednesday, though the state has a dismal track record on refugee resettlement.

“If a new order still discriminates against persons based upon national origins, violates our nation’s freedom of religion, or otherwise violates the Constitution, the State of Hawaii and its people must oppose it,” state Attorney General Doug Chin said, in advance of the second order’s promulgation.

It’s commitment to free movement of refugees notwithstanding, during fiscal year 2015, the state accepted all of seven refugees, according to data from the Office of Refugee Resettlement. Only one jurisdiction, the District of Columbia, accepted fewer.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

While the corporate media continues to push that this is a Muslim ban, the truth is that anyone of ANY religion attempting to travel from these specific nations will have an equal amount of trouble crossing the border. Christian, Muslim, Jew, Pastafarian, Atheist; all are equal in the eyes of the law, and in this case, the law is on Trump's side.

8 U.S. Code § 1182 states...

(f) Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by President Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate. Whenever the Attorney General finds that a commercial airline has failed to comply with regulations of the Attorney General relating to requirements of airlines for the detection of fraudulent documents used by passengers traveling to the United States (including the training of personnel in such detection), the Attorney General may suspend the entry of some or all aliens transported to the United States by such airline.
