After a Federal Judge in Seattle has issued temporary restraining order (TRO) on US President Donald Trump’s controversial executive order temporarily banning Muslim countries from the Middle East to enter United States, US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) ordered all US bound airlines to again to accommodate travelers to board their aircraft.
The US Agency immediately relayed the advisory to all US bound carriers to allow passengers who possesses valid visas issued by the embassy of their point of origin board their flights.
The US Customs immediately called a conference around 9 p.m. EST (10 a.m. Saturday, February 4 in Manila) to follow the order handed down by Judge James Robart, a George W. Bush appointee, who made his ruling effective immediately on Friday, suggesting that travel restrictions could be lifted straight away.
Affected passengers based on the Executive Order signed by US President Donald Trump have something to rejoice. They are the citizens of Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.
Judge Robart clarified in his Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) that respondents can still appeal the ruling to the higher court and have the policy upheld.
