A US federal judge in Hawaii indefinitely extended on Wednesday a court order blocking US President Trump's new travel ban.

​US District Court Judge Derrick Watson in Hawaii indefinitely blocked Trump's revised travel ban that he temporarily halted on March 15. The initial order read that the ban discriminates against residents on the basis of their religion, and violates their rights to due process and equal protection guaranteed by the US Constitution. Later, Watson's decision was supported by a federal judge in Maryland.

Trump called the ruling issued by the Hawaiian judge "an unprecedented judicial overreach," citing the section of the US Constitution that gives the president executive authority to suspend the entry of aliens.

On March 6, Trump issued an executive order that restricts individuals from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the United States for 90 days, and suspends refugees from entering the country for 120 days. Unlike the first order, which was signed in January and later suspended by a court in February, Iraqi nationals are not included in the new ban.

Now that the block has been extended, the Trump administration will need to appeal to the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco.
