DHS Suspends Implementation of Trump’s Travel Ban Due To Court Order

On February 3, 2017, a federal court in Seattle granted Washington State and Minnesota’s emergency motion for a temporary restraining order in its challenge to President Trump’s January 27, 2017, Executive Order¬†imposing a travel and refugee ban. In accordance with the court’s ruling, DHS has suspended any and all actions implementing the affected sections of the Order. Likewise, DOS has lifted the provisional revocation of valid visas of nationals of Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen. ¬†Nevertheless, foreign nationals from these countries should continue to refrain from travel outside of the U.S. or do so with the knowledge that the restraining order is temporary and implemtation of the order could resume at any time depending upon pending federal litigation.
