Federal Court Halts Executive Order
Tonight a federal court in New York granted a motion which temporarily halts the effects of the Executive Order banning the entry of certain individuals (see posting from earlier).  This order retrains the U.S. government from removing any individuals with a refugee application already approved by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, holders of valid immigrant visas (green cards), nonimmigrant visas, and “other individuals from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen  legally authorized to enter the United States.”  With that said, and in light of uncertainties ahead, Clark Lau cautions individuals fitting into these categories against traveling for the time being.
