Washington: Donald Trump seems to be staring at a legal wall surrounding his Muslim travel ban. The travel ban was set to go into force beginning today, but now as two federal judges have halted its implementation, the President’s pet promise of banning Muslims’ entry in US is almost defeated.

First it was Judge Derrick K Watson who, while hearing an appeal from Hawaii delayed the travel ban’s implementation across the US. But if that was not enough, another judicial intervention from Judge Theodore Chuang has made its implementation simply impossible.
