A second federal judge in the US has blocked parts of Donald Trump’s revised travel ban.
The move follows a nationwide block on the order by a judge in Hawaii, hours before it was due to take effect.
The revised travel ban is designed to prevent citizens from six majority-Muslim countries from entering the US.
Trump has described judicial blocks to the ban as “unprecedented judicial overreach”, and has said he was willing to take the case “as far as it needs to go”, including to the Supreme Court.
