    The US government will bring the fight to exert its executive power to suspend immigration all the way to the Supreme Court, President Donald Trump told a rally in Nashville in the US state of Tennessee after a Hawaii federal judge blocked his travel ban.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Trump called the ruling by a federal judge in Hawaii on the 9th District Court “an unprecedented judicial overreach” and read to the rally the section of the US Constitution giving the president executive authority to suspend the entry of aliens at the rally on Wednesday.

    Earlier, Hawaiian federal judge Derrick K. Watson granted a motion to implement a temporary restraining order against US President Donald Trump's executive order temporarily banning migrants from six Muslim-majority nations.

    The ban was set to take effect Thursday, but federal judge Derrick K. Watson has issued a response that suspends Trump's ban nationwide. On Wednesday, federal judges in Maryland and Washington state were slated to hear similar cases as well.

    The order had placed a ban on granting asylum to refugees while denying entry to the US to citizens of Libya, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Yemen and Somalia. Unlike the first controversial executive action, Iraq was not included on the list.

      Blatantly unconstitutional. Remove and imprison that judge. We don't have dictators in this country. Obama is effectually refusing to cede power to Trump. Trump should start taking this a lot more seriously.

      Where were these communist judges when the "constitutional free zone" was established along 100 miles inland in the US?
      Where were these judges when the constitution was being ripped apart the last 10 years?
      Obviously they only scream "Constitution" when it benefits Them!
