Trump’s Travel Ban Temporarily Lifted after Federal Judge’s Ruling

After a federal judge suspended US President Trump’s executive order, passengers with valid travel documents are permitted to fly.

A federal judge in Washington State declared Friday that he would temporarily block enforcement of President Donald Trump’s controversial ban on entry to the United States, and government authorities immediately began taking steps that would allow those previously affected to travel, according to a US official familiar with the matter.

The ruling from Judge James Robart was broader than similar ones before it, and it prompted officials to immediately communicate with airlines, Chicago Tribune reported.

Airlines in Europe and the Middle East responded to the suspension of tightened US immigration rules by again allowing passengers from countries that had been blocked to fly to the US, following chaos at airports and protests across the country, WSJ reported.
