Also, early today, the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland issued an injunction barring enforcement nationwide of Section 2(c) of the order. DOS announced that it will suspend implementation of the provisions of the Executive Order as required by the relevant court orders, and that U.S. embassies and consulates will continue to process visas for nationals of Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen. - AILA National
