Revised travel ban still poses problems

ILLINOIS -- President Trump's revised travel ban did not receive a warmer welcome the second time around from Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan.

She writes, “The changes to the travel ban do not alter the fact that this executive action is discriminatory and contrary to the founding principles of our country."

Madigan signed on to a new court motion with 12 other states and Washington DC, which argues the President's Executive Order "will inhibit the free exchange of information, ideas, and talent," between the US and the six nations on the list.

A court hearing is scheduled in Hawaii for Wednesday, a last ditch effort to block the travel ban which is scheduled to go into effect later this week.
