Executive Order 13769 is currently stayed by a Temporary Restraining Order from the State of Washington.  The Court of Appeals of the Ninth Circuit upheld this stay.  This means that Customs and Board Protection and other authorities cannot carry out the Executive Order's instructions and immigrants and refugees with valid documents should be allowed to fly to and enter the United States nationwide under the same conditions as before the Executive Order of January 27, 2017. Customs and Border Protection ("CBP") reportedly is reinstating visas and getting "back to business as usual."
