Trump's new travel ban blocked
Singapore, March 17, 2017
Federal judges in Hawaii and Maryland have ruled against US president Trump's latest ban on travel from several Muslim-majority countries from going into effect, questioning the legality of the executive order. 
The new travel ban, which is narrower and would affect six countries with Iraq removed from the list, was blocked mere hours before it was scheduled to launch on Thursday midnight. 
The first executive order, implemented in January with little warning, caused massive confusion and disruption around the travel world. 
Data from travel intelligence company ForwardKeys has shown that travel to the US have been affected by Trump's travel bans.
