Second Legal Method Against The Trump Travel Ban

There are two methods of fighting Donald Trump's travel ban of Middle-Eastern Muslims. The first way, which has been the method that has gotten all of the attention, is attacking the entire ban as unconstitutional.
Washington State was successful on getting the first travel ban suspended by using this method. Now, Hawaii, Washington, and all other states with attorneys Donald Trump can't fire are on the move challenging the second ban, according to Above The Law.
Another equally important way of challenging the Muslim travel ban is waiting until the Trump administration is trampled over by its own bigoted policies since rulings along these lines can be extremely limited. However,
In one of the cases that involved the travel ban, a temporary restraining order was issued by U.S. District Judge William Conley, preventing Trump from suspending the entry of the wife and child of a Syrian refugee who is already living in America. According to the ABA Journal, his wife and child had been cleared by the vetting process and were due for final processing, only to discover that their applications had been blocked by Trump's original travel ban.
"The court appreciates the important differences between the original executive order and the revised executive order," Conley wrote in a statement pertaining his decision. "As the order applies to the plaintiff here, however, the court finds his claims have at least some chance of prevailing for the reasons articulated by other courts."
There has been an ongoing fight against the travel ban. There have been macro issues and the theoretical effects on the national character of the United States, but it first needs to be death on the small scale.
As the Trump Administration tries to suspend individuals' entry based on their religion and nation of origin, the courts are going to be flooded with challenges. That doesn't include the pain and suffering the travel ban will cause, which will last a decade, or perhaps decades.
