it is fine. california senator tweeted out, how many times is he going to lose before he stops trying to shut our doors on those fleeing wars and violence. the president is about to hold a raleigh in -- rally in nashville. we are joined about david levine to talk more about this decision about the judge in hawaii. what was the reason behind the judge's decision. >> basically the changes in the order from the first one to the second one is not enough. this suffers from the same problem that it is a ban on muslim and that is not not constitutional. >> this refined ban is just that, is there anything elsewhere they didn't go far enough sko. >> well, they made it better because they took out the problem of everyone who has green cards, the whole chaos that we saw in the airports.
they took care of thachlt they cut out one country, they cut out iraq which still had problems that the defense department had with the order. but this judge thinks that there is a probable success that tt intent behind this order is to ban muslims and the judge thought that the plaintiffs had a good shot for showing that's unconstitutional. >> what if their rulings are opposite what this judge ruled until hawaii, what happens then. >> right now it doesn't matter, because the judge's order out of hawaii has nationwide effect. even if a judge in baltimore trp top say i'm not going to issue an injunction, it wouldn't matter not unless or until the supreme court were to intervene. >> this is a political blow to the whitehouse. what does the administration do at this point? what options do they have? >> they have some problems here because of the way they act the
first time around. the problem is because they ran so quickly to the ninth circuit they ran with an unfavorable ruling with the ninth circuit. so, the trial judge in hawaii is going to follow that order. the chances of going to the ninth circuit again are really about zero. >> even though it's a revised travel order, they wouldn't re try it, they t would just hold up to the original one. >> it is going to be the same problems. you have the problem that the united states government would have the burden of persuasion of getting the ninth circuit to issue an emergency order. they failed the first time. they are likely to fail the second time. we have essentially the same problems, which is do you look at the intent behind the words in the order or not. the ninth circuit previously said that was okay, so presumably they are going to say it again. >> if they don't go to the ninth
circuit, what would they do? >> the next step after the temporary restraining order, the state of hawaii would seek a preliminary injunction within a week or two. >> what about the trump at mrgs, where would they go? >> wait. the answer is wait. let's say the preliminary injunction is issued and hawaii wins on that. the procedural proves you don't remember is much better for the united states government up at the ninth circuit if they wait. part of the problem last time is they just didn't wait. >> do you think it may go to the supreme court? >> it may well. maybe not this week, but we may well see it in the supreme court. >> thank you for coming in and giving us your perspective. >> of course. today the justice department formally indicted four russians in that massive hacking case that compromised 500 million yahoo accounts. two of the suspects were members
