State Dept reverses revocation of 60K visas

The State Department Saturday morning reversed the revocation of up to 60,000 visas from foreigners from seven Muslim-majority countries following a federal judge’s ruling that immediately halted President Trump’s immigration order, according to reports.

The department says that for now, people covered by the order and holding a valid visa may now travel to the United States.

On Friday, the State Department announced that the 60,000 visas had been provisionally revoked to comply with President Trump’s temporary ban on travel.

Federal judge James Robart, who was appointed by former President George W. Bush in 2003, ruled Friday that the executive order would be stopped nationwide, effective immediately.

Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson, a Democrat, filed the lawsuit three days after Trump signed the executive order. The suit argued that the travel ban targets Muslims and violates constitutional rights of immigrants and their families.

The ruling, made at the request of Washington and Minnesota, is the broadest to date against Trump’s executive order.

Trump’s action bans people from Iraq, Iran, Syria, Yemen, Libya, Sudan and Somalia from entering the U.S. for 90 days. It also temporarily halts the United States’ refugee resettlement program for 120 days, while indefinitely suspending resettlement for refugees from Syria.
