OCTOBER 18, 2017 UPDATE:
A Temporary Restraining Order issued by the U.S. District Court for the District of Hawaii on October 17 blocked enforcement of the Presidential Proclamation restrictions on the following countries: Chad, Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, and Somalia. A preliminary injunction issued by the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland on October 18 also blocked parts of the Proclamation. Together, these rulings mean that for the time being, except for citizens of North Korea and certain citizens of Venezuela, foreign nationals can travel to the United States as they could before the Sept. 24 travel restrictions were announced. These rulings could of course still be reversed or limited by an appellate court. If that happens, the travel restrictions still could take effect in the coming days or weeks.
