Hawaii lawmakers criticize Sessions' island judge remarks

In March, U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson issued a nationwide temporary restraining order to Trump's travel ban, and then extended the order, prompting the president to file an appeal.

In an interview with a conservative radio host Mark Levin on Wednesday, Sessions argued that he was in dismay that the Hawaii judge had the power to halt the president's apparent constitutional authority.

Session's comment was clarified by Ian Prior, a spokesman for the Justice Department and he told CNN: "Hawaii is, in fact, an island in the Pacific - a attractive one where the attorney general's granddaughter was born".

Another Hawaii federal senator Brian Schatz slammed Sessions' remark on Twitter as well, saying that "Mr. Attorney General: You voted for that judge". "Hawaii is, in fact, an island in the Pacific - a attractive one where the Attorney General's granddaughter was born", a spokesman told the network.

On Thursday evening, the spokesperson of the Justice Department Ian Prior tried to clarified Sessions' statement.

I believe it is constitutionally sound. Frankly, given the amount of tourism to Hawaii, if we're deciding which judges are and aren't "qualified" to rule on a travel ban, a judge in Oahu may be better suited than a judge in, say, Nebraska.
