The US state of Hawaii is preparing for its second legal battle against President Donald Trump’s travel ban after a victory in the Supreme Court Hawaii State Attorney Doug Chin stated in a press release.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — "The Supreme Court did stay Judge Watson’s order with respect to refugees covered by a formal assurance, pending resolution by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals," Chin stated in the release on Wednesday. "We are currently preparing our arguments for the Ninth Circuit to resolve that issue."

US Supreme Court Confirms Trump 'Overreached' on Travel Ban
Earlier in the day, the Supreme Court confirmed the Hawaii federal court order that grandparents, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and cousins are considered close family and should be included in exemptions to the travel ban.

The Trump Administration filed a notice of appeal with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in addition to its motion to the Supreme Court. In light of the Supreme Court’s order denying the Administration’s motion to clarify today, the government’s argument regarding refugees will now be heard before the Ninth Circuit.
