UPDATE: Federal judge in Seattle puts nationwide halt to Trump’s immigration order
A federal judge in Seattle has ordered a halt to enforcement of President Trump’s controversial travel ban on citizens from seven predominantly Muslim nations.
U.S. District Judge James Robart ruled in favor Friday of Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson, who sued to invalidate key provisions of Trump’s executive order. That order indefinitely blocks entry to the United States for Syrian refugees and temporarily suspends entry to citizens of seven majority-Muslim countries.
The temporary restraining order is granted on a nationwide basis, Robart said. Continue to register on TAP as this is only a temporary halt.
