US CUSTOMS AND BORDER PROTECTION GIVES AIRLINES GREEN LIGHT TO IGNORE IMMIGRATION BAN

River Stillwood

Mother Jones is reporting that US Customs & Border Protection broke with the Trump administration and informed airlines they could disregard the immigraton ban and resume bringing visa-permitted citizens from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Sudan, Somalia and Yemen.

Mother Jones: "In a conference call at around 9 p.m. EST (0200 GMT), the U.S. agency told airlines to operate just as they had before the order, which temporarily had stopped refugees and nationals from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States. Individuals from those states who have proper visas can now board U.S.-bound flights, and airlines are working to update their websites to reflect the change, said the official, who was not authorized to speak publicly."
