Hawaii's attorney general says new USA government rules prohibiting the use of laptops and other electronic gadgets on flights from eight Muslim-majority nations prove that President Donald Trump's control of immigration and national security isn't hampered by the state's lawsuit over his travel ban.
In its filing, the government points to a Maryland district court's decision to ban only one section of the 15-page travel ban, while highlighting Friday's ruling that the president's revised travel order appears to fall within the president's authority.
The legal issue before him, Trenga wrote, "is whether EO-2 falls within the bounds of the President's statutory authority or whether the President has exercised that authority in violation of constitutional restraints".
"T$3 he substantive revisions reflected in [executive order] have".
White House press secretary Sean Spicer applauded the decision, as did the US Department of Justice.
At this stage of the lawsuit, Trenga concluded, the plaintiffs have not demonstrated a likelihood to succeed on the merits.
Trenga ruled that, despite Trump's past statements, the changes made from the first executive order, notably removing specific references to religion, meant it was not unlawful.
