    "A federal judge temporarily halted President Donald Trump's immigration executive order effective nationwide Friday, a significant setback for the controversial travel ban.

    Federal Judge James Robart, who presides in Washington state, orally granted the temporary restraining order. There was no written order immediately available.

    Trump's executive order that he signed last week suspended immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries for 90 days, the US refugee program for 120 days and indefinitely halted Syrian refugees from entering the US.

    "No one is above the law -- not even the President," Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson said.This suit was brought by the states of Washington and Minnesota against the travel ban enacted by Trump's executive order.

    A Customs and Border Patrol spokesman told CNN the agency will review the order and comply with all court orders.

    There was no immediate response from the Trump administration.

    "We only challenged the parts that are actually affecting people immediately, which are the parts about refugees and the parts about targeting these seven countries ... the parts that have getting so much attention and have been causing such immediate harm to people, stranding them oversees and such, are enjoined right away," Washington Solicitor General Noah Purcell told reporters."

    The cases last weekend were about releasing (and not deporting) people who were in transit to American airports when the ban was imposed.

    This case is much wider. It is about stopping the enforcement of Trump's ban on people travelling to the USA.

    He has lifetime tenure. He can only be removed by impeachment.

    The electoral college voted Trump. The people voted Clinton.

    However, the Congress and the States adopted a Constitutional Amendment which this judge considers arguably renders Trump's actions unconstitutional. He has forbad the enforcement of Trump's Order until that question is determined.

    To be against the POTUS is to act against America, against the constitution, against democracy. The military and the second amendment people will do the firing.

    It helps if you read and understand or you end up looking foolish. It is not old news and it is a different case.

    Is Trump above the constitution and the law? He will have to go to court to get the decision overturned. Its only a temp block, but it shows he cnat just do what eh wnats , how he wants and ignore the law.

    The US authorities have rolled back a controversial travel ban on people from seven mainly Muslim countries after a judge suspended it.

    The state department said it was reversing the cancellation of visas, 60,000 of which were revoked after President Donald Trump's order.

    Judge James Robart ruled there were legal grounds to challenge the ban.
    Mr Trump reacted furiously, calling Mr Robart's ruling "ridiculous" and vowing to restore his ban.

    People affected by the ban treated news of the suspension warily as airlines began allowing them to board flights to America on Saturday.

    The ban's implementation was halted with immediate effect by Judge Robart's ruling, in which he found that legal challenges to the ban launched by two states, Washington and Minnesota, were likely to succeed.

    Homeland Security Department employees were told by the department to comply with the ruling immediately.

    Customs officials told airlines that they could resume boarding banned travellers. Within hours, Qatar Airways said it would do so, followed by Air France, Etihad Airways, Lufthansa and others.

    Trump is a deranged clown. There is no doubt he'll soon become the village idiot amongst the head of states.
