Federal judges partially block third travel ban

Oct. 17, 2017

On Oct. 17, a federal judge in Hawaii granted a temporary restraining order against the Trump administration's third travel ban. This decision means that the travel ban will not be enforced against individuals from six of the eight named countries--Iran, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Chad, and Libya. This ruling does not prevent the Trump administration from enforcing the travel ban on Venezuela and North Korea. Accordingly, the ban took effect against those countries on Oct. 18. A federal judge in Maryland also blocked part of the third travel ban. Northeastern will continue to closely monitor the presidential proclamation and update this page as more information becomes available.
