Trump's lawyers ask Supreme Court to rein in Hawaii judge - LA Times

Trump administration lawyers voicing frustration with a federal judge in Hawaii have asked the Supreme Court to intervene again and to allow the government to strictly enforce its temporary foreign travel ban.

The acting U.S. solicitor general said the justices should issue a ruling to clarify the travel ban or, at minimum, block the latest ruling by U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson in Hawaii.

"At this point, this court's intervention is both necessary and warranted," Jeffery Wall, the acting Solicitor General, said in an appeal filed Friday evening.
