World's Airlines Are Told It's Back to Business as Usual for US-Bound Travelers in Wake of Judge's Order

The 60,000 visas canceled under the order are now valid.

— -- Airlines around the world are being told that it's business as usual regarding people's entry into the United States from the seven countries covered by President Trump's executive order on immigration and refugees.

The International Air Transport Association, which represents 265 airlines in 117 countries, sent a message to its members Saturday informing them that in light of a federal judge's block of the immigration order, airlines should follow practices in effect prior to the executive action.

The 60,000 visas canceled under President Trump's executive order are now again valid following a federal judge's temporary blocking of the executive action, the U.S. State Department said Saturday.

The provisional revocation of visas under the executive order has been reversed, and individuals with visas affected the executive action may now travel if the visa remains otherwise valid, the State Department said.

Christiansen added that the Trump administration will seek an emergency halt to the judge's order as soon as possible.

The government response comes after U.S. District Judge James Robart in Seattle issued a nationwide restraining order Friday blocking parts of the executive action that temporarily bars some immigrants and refugees from seven predominantly Muslim countries.
