A federal judge in Hawaii blocked President Donald Trump's new travel ban on Wednesday afternoon, hours before the ban was set to go into effect. The ruling -- which applies nationwide -- means that travelers from six Muslim-majority countries and refugees will be able to travel to the U.S. The Trump administration took over a month to rewrite the travel ban order after multiple federal courts blocked its implementation last month. Unlike the previous executive order, the new one removed Iraq from the list of banned countries, exempted those with green cards and visas, and removed a provision that arguably prioritizes certain religious minorities.


CNN: A federal judge in Hawaii has blocked President Donald Trump's new travel ban on Wednesday afternoon, hours before the ban was set to go into effect.

This ruling means that travelers from six Muslim-majority countries and refugees will be able to travel to the US.

The Trump administration took over a month to rewrite the travel ban order after multiple federal courts blocked its implementation last month.

Unlike the previous executive order, the new one removed Iraq from the list of banned countries, exempted those with green cards and visas, and removed a provision arguably prioritizes certain religious minorities.

Despite this change, US District Court Judge Derrick Watson concluded that the new executive order still failed to pass legal muster.

More than 114,000 people have pledged to boycott Disney over its promotion of the LGBT agenda in its Beauty and the Beast remake. And the number continues to rise.

LifeSiteNews' petition, launched March 2, tells Disney that harmful sexual political agendas have no place in children's movies. It promptly exceeded its initial goal of 50,000 signatures on the first day.

After getting picked up by other media outlets, it quickly passed a subsequent goal of 100,000. Now the initiative is aiming for a quarter-million people.

The film's so-called "explicitly gay moment" flies in the face of the company's history as a source of wholesome family entertainment, betraying a corporation having caved to a morally flawed agenda of the culture.

The pushback in Disney's direction indicates that many people have had enough.

LifeSiteNews' petition is among concerted efforts to tell Disney that weaving homosexual indoctrination into its programming is not acceptable.

The One Million Moms petition says Disney is "pushing [the LGBT agenda] on families and children." It has yielded over 47,000 signatures and continues to grow.

In addition, an Alabama drive-in theater is refusing to show the Beauty and the Beast remake. The owners cited their Christian principles and have persisted in the face of negative response.

While Beauty and the Beast is slated to open in Russia on March 16, one day before its U.S. release, the Russian government will ban the film for viewers under age 16. Officials determined that there is evidence of violation of Russia's law banning homosexual propaganda for young people.
