Trump Supporters Boycott Hawaii, But Their Twitter Campaign Already Backfired


On Wednesday, March 15, Judge Derrick K. Watson, a federal judge in Hawaii, issued a freeze on President Donald Trump’s executive order. Judge Watson did this just hours before the executive order would have frozen visa issuance and suspended refugee acceptance from six Muslim-majority countries. The order would've been Donald Trump's second attempt at a travel ban, after his first was shot down by another judge.

Watson argued that the order discriminated against Muslims and would open the United States to legal action, because it could easily be shown that the directive violated the Constitution.
