Honolulu (Reuters) U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson on Wednesday said he would put an emergency halt on President Donald Trump’s revised travel ban that placed temporary U.S. entry restrictions on refugees and travelers from six Muslim-majority countries.

The new ban was set to go into effect at 12:01 a.m. on Thursday.
