The Justice Department, State Department and the Department of Homeland Security have all appealed Trump’s executive order banning travel to the U.S. from seven Muslim-majority countries and suspending refugee entry. People holding valid visas are now free to travel to and from the U.S. It is still unclear as to how many people lack visas.

The sudden halt of his immigration order has given Trump his first glance as to the limits of his presidential power.

Since the order was signed last week, protests spring up all over the nation, around 60,000 valid visas were revoked, the Acting Attorney General Sally Yates was fired, and many  were detained and deported.
