A federal judge in Hawaii on Wednesday granted a temporary restraining order against President Donald Trump's third travel ban, just hours before it was set to take effect at midnight on October 18.

Trump issued a proclamation last month restricting travel to the US from nationals of eight countries, including Iran, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Venezuela, Chad, Libya, and North Korea.

Those restrictions came after the first two iterations of the travel ban, which targeted majority-Muslim nations, faced court challenges.

Trump's newest proclamation, issued on September 24, replaced the outright ban with travel restrictions tailored on a country-by-country basis.
