Federal judge who blocked executive order receives death threats

Several news outlets have reported that Judge Derrick Watson, of the United States District Court for the District of Hawaii, has received death threats in the wake of his March 15 order enjoining the enforcement of President Trump’s revised travel ban.

This is not the first time American judges have been threatened, and certainly won’t be the last.  Fortunately, the U.S. Marshals and local police take such threats very seriously.
