U.S. State Department reinstates visas in wake of federal judge’s hold order

WASHINGTON — The State Department says it’s reversed the cancellations of visas for foreigners after a federal judge put on hold President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration.

The department had said up to 60,000 foreigners from seven majority-Muslim countries had their visas “provisionally revoked” to comply with Trump’s order blocking them from traveling to the United States.

The department says it acted to reinstate the visas after getting word from the Justice Department about the judge’s ruling Friday in Washington state.

For now, the department says people covered by the order and holding a valid visa may now travel to the United States.

    Remember all the press coverage from the “non bias mainstream” media after Benghazi to include Susan Rice and Hillary Clinton lying to the American public, secret army deserter Bowe Bergdahl trade for 5 senior Taliban leaders, the failed fast and furious operation that resulted in dead U.S. Border patrol agents, the ransom paid to Iran (in gold) for hostages and all the protests from Romney voters? Me neither.
