Federal court in Seattle (Washington) blocked the order of US President Donald Trump which prohibited refugees’ entry into the country and granting visas to the citizens of seven states, populated mostly with Muslim, according to BBC.
The ruling is halted until the application filled by the local attorney office is considered. They demand to recognize the main provisions of this order unconstitutional and repeal it.
100 thousand American visas have already been revoked as a result of the introduction of the immigration order. At the same time, US authorities note that the migrants with permanent residence permit are feely entering the country.
In turn, the representative of the consular service reported that US authorities have cancelled less than 60 thousand visas in terms of the newly introduced Trump’s order.
United States Department of Justice promised to litigate the ban of immigration decree. White House press-secretary Sean Spicer made a corresponding announcement: “We consider president’s decree appropriate and helpful.”
As it was reported, President Donald Trump has signed an executive memorandum that makes sweeping changes to US refugee and immigration policy on January 27. Many Attorneys General have condemned Trump’s immigration police, foreign political leaders also condemned the decision on banning refugees.
