Hawaii judge loosens travel ban to allow grandparents, other relatives

A federal judge says the government may not exclude refugees who have formal assurance from a resettlement agency in the U.S. Judge Derrick K. Watson said grandparents and other close relatives - such as in-laws, aunts and uncles - traveling from the six affected countries, all of them predominantly Muslim, are exempt from the ban, for now.

The Supreme Court ruled late last month that the government could begin enforcing the executive order, but not on people with "a credible claim of a bona fide relationship" with a person or entity in the United States.

People participate in a NY rally in June to protest the separation of families under the Trump administration's travel ban.

His ruling also expands the list of relatives allowed in under the travel ban.

The Trump administration then decided to make exceptions for spouses, parents, parents-in-law, children, sons-in-law and daughters-in-law, fiances and siblings of those already in the country.

Hawaii filed documents Wednesday saying it's cruel to enforce the ban against grandmothers and other relatives of USA citizens who were excluded from the government's definition.
