WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. State Department was informed by the Justice Department of the ruling by a Washington state court blocking U.S. President Donald Trump's order barring nationals from seven countries from entering the United States, a State Department spokesperson said on Friday.
The State Department is working with the Department of Homeland Security to determine how the ruling affects its operations and will announce any changes affecting travellers to the United States as soon as that information is available, the spokesperson said.
A federal judge in Seattle on Friday put a nationwide block on Trump's week-old executive order.
