US suspends travel ban after judge stayed Trump executive order

Washington: US authorities on Saturday suspended President Donald Trump’s controversial ban on travelers from seven Muslim countries, following a court ruling that blocked its enforcement.

“We have reversed the provisional revocation of visas,” a US State Department spokesman told AFP.

“Those individuals with visas that were not physically cancelled may now travel if the visa is otherwise valid,” the official said.

The State Department official added that the Trump administration is “working closely with the Department of Homeland Security and our legal teams” pending a full review of a complaint filed by Washington state’s attorney general, which filed the challenge.
