    ACLU *mistakenly* posts *most unfortunate* tweet ever

    Exuberance at Hawaii Order scaling back Trump Travel Order led to unfortunate error.

    Late last night a federal judge in Hawaii issued an Order scaling back the Trump administration’s implementation of the Travel Order.

    The judge disagreed with the Trump administration as to who would be considered a “close familial relationship” under the Supreme Court’s ruling. The Hawaii judge ruled that “grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins” would fall under that category, and thus be excluded from Travel Order bar to entry.

    The ACLU celebrated early this morning with a *most unfortunate* tweet:

    Oops. They linked the wrong AP report.

    The tweet was deleted but lives on in the Internet archives. (h/t Ashley Rae on Twitter)

    When someone called it to their attention, the ACLU noted the mistake.

    Here is the new, corrected tweet:
