Supporters of Donald Trump angrily took to Twitter on Wednesday night to express their outrage after a federal judge in Hawaii blocked the president’s second anti-Muslim travel ban just hours before it was set to go into effect.
The new executive order would temporarily ban the issuance of new visas to people coming from six-Muslim majority countries, and would also halt new refugees from entering the country. But U.S. District Judge Derrick K. Watson halted the order, the Washington Post reported.
Trump supporters were not happy about the news, suggesting that Hawaii should be banned, and suggesting the judge “should be punished according US Legal Code 4 treason.”
Maybe we should ban Hawaii? #travelban you know what Australia does for immigration they put them on a island away from mainland

All refugees should be sent to Hawaii to live in Obama’s old house. Both his moms and grandparents.

This #travelban has to go all the way to Supreme Court if necessary. These activist judges must be reigned in. Dissolve the 9th circuit!
