Executive Orders Impacting Immigration:

Executive Orders impacting immigration were issued by the President of the United States on January 25th and 27th 2017. A revised Executive Order was signed by the President on March 6, 2017 however, certain portions of it were halted by a preliminary injunction on March 29, 2017.  

On June 26, 2018, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled on the case of Trump vs. Hawaii  which sought to contest the most recent iteration of the administration's travel ban on certain countries.  The 5-4 Supreme Court decision ruled in favor of the current policy on the grounds that the President of the United States has the authority to enact such a policy. The Court's ruling does not change or amend the current policy that has been in existence since September 2017.

Further information about the ruling can be found in the linked communications below.  The Immigration Services Office (ISO) will continue to post any additional information on this page, as it is made available. Please contact the ISO with any specific questions.
