Travel and Refugee Ban Suspended For Now

By court order, the travel ban and refugee ban are suspended for now. However, the Trump administration has appeal the court order.  Basically, the federal judge’s ruling in favor of the states of Michigan and Washington, temporarily stops the any actions under Executive Order until the court can fully consider the lawsuit.  The lawsuit seeks invalidation of the Executive Order (E.O.) as unconstitutional.  The court’s order places a nationwide block on the E.O.  The Trump administration has appealed but the appeals court has denied the administration request to continue the E.O. until further hearing.

According to current news reports, the Department of Homeland Security “announced it has suspended all actions to implement the immigration order and will resume standard inspections of travelers as it did prior to the signing of the travel ban.”

Also, according to CNN:

“CBP alerted airlines Friday night that the US government would quickly begin reinstating visas that were previously canceled, and it advised airlines that refugees in possession of US visas will be admitted as well, an airline executive said.

CBP told major US airlines Friday night that the government is in the process of reinstating visas and is “back to business as usual” before the situation that was in place before last week’s executive order, the airline executive told CNN. Airlines were expected to remove travel alerts from their websites and get messages out to customers to alert them about the change.”
