US Travel Ban revoked

Posted on: 06/02/2017

On Saturday 4th February 2017, just 3 days after the President had introduced his executive order, the US authorities rolled back the controversial travel ban after a judge suspended it.  The State Department said it was reversing the cancellation of visas, 60,000 of which were revoked after President Donald Trump's order. Judge James Robart ruled there were legal grounds to challenge the ban. Mr Trump reacted furiously, calling Mr Robart's ruling "ridiculous" and vowing to restore his ban. People affected by the ban treated news of the suspension warily as airlines began allowing them to board flights to America on Saturday.  Read More
