Judge Partially Blocks the Trump Administration’s Temporary Visa Ban

A San Francisco federal judge’s ruling has blocked the Trump Administration from its ban against bringing in foreign workers under employment-based visas, including those under H-2b and other employment-based visas.

The ruling applies to workers for companies represented by the plaintiffs in the suit: the National Association of Manufacturers, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Retail Federation and TechNet. Together, the four organizations represent hundreds of thousands of companies, including major Silicon Valley technology employers, significant names in manufacturing and pharmaceuticals, and some small businesses.

The order, in effect until the end of the year, is national in scope, though it doesn’t apply to employers not represented by one of the four plaintiffs.
