Federal Judge Pauses Donald Trump's Travel Ban Executive Order
Donald Trump‘s temporary travel ban has been put on pause by a federal judge.
Just a week after the 70-year-old president signed the controversial Executive Order limiting travel from seven countries, a judge in Seattle has issued a temporary restraining order on the ban.
The ruling came at a hearing on Friday (February 3) during which Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson went up against federal lawyers after filing an amended complaint to stop the order.
“The Constitution prevailed today. No one is above the law — not even the president,” the Attorney General said in a statement.
