A federal judge in Hawaii on Tuesday blocked a third version of President Donald Trump's travel ban.

The ban was scheduled to go into effect at midnight and targeted eight nations, six of which have populations that are majority Muslim.

The state of Hawaii, the Muslim Association of Hawaii and others sought a temporary restraining order to stop the travel ban from going into effect, Politico reported.
