Posted on Mar 6, 2017 in Latest News

HONOLULU – Attorney General Doug Chin issued the following statement today in response to the new executive order banning immigration from several Muslim-majority countries.

“This new executive order is nothing more than Muslim Ban 2.0. Under the pretense of national security, it still targets immigrants and refugees. It leaves the door open for even further restrictions. Our office is reviewing the new order and will decide what next steps may be necessary.”
