US judge blocks latest version of Trump travel ban

Washington: A US judge has barred the White House from implementing yet another version of Donald Trump’s controversial executive order on immigration, hours before it was to go into full effect.

The decision by federal judge Derrick Watson — which the US government is likely to swiftly appeal — marks the latest blow to Trump’s long-running efforts to indefinitely restrict entry of travellers from targeted countries into the United States.
