Washington, Feb 4: US State Department on Saturday reversed revocation of visas after a judge stayed Donald Trump's executive order on banning travellers. US State Department said visas that were previously revoked under Trump's executive order are now valid for travel.

Department of Homeland Security says it has suspended all actions to implement Trump's immigration order. This comes after Trump lashed out on Saturday at a court ruling suspending his controversial ban. Trump described federal judge James Robart as a "so-called" justice whose "ridiculous" opinion "essentially takes law-enforcement away from" the US.

Judge Robart ruled on Friday that the prohibition was unconstitutional. A number of airlines have said they are allowing nationals targeted by the ban to board flights to America.

"The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!" Trump said on Twitter.
