Washington and Wall Street are supporting global terrorists, not the countries which are targeted in US President Donald Trump’s travel ban, an American journalist and political analyst says.
Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Thursday, after a federal judge in the US state of Hawaii blocked Trump’s latest version of travel ban, saying it “plainly discriminates based on nationality.”
Derrick K. Watson, the judge of US Federal District Court in Honolulu, issued a nationwide order on Tuesday and blocked the third version of Trump’s controversial travel ban, calling it discriminatory and in contravention to immigration law.
The new regulations, set last month, indefinitely banned entry to the US by most nationals of Syria, Libya, Iran, Yemen, Somalia, Chad and North Korea. The restriction also targeted certain Venezuelan government officials and their families.
