Federal Judge Temporarily Blocks Travel Ban

Late on Friday, February 3, 2017, a federal judge ordered a temporary halt nationwide to the travel ban that had applied to nationals of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen. This travel ban, which was instituted by President Trump via executive order, had been in effect since Friday, January 27, 2017. The White House is in the process of challenging this order. For the time being, however, nationals of the affected countries have had their visas reinstated and they should not be denied admission to the United States based on this executive order.
