FILE - In this Friday, April 21, 2017, file photo, President Donald Trump poses for a portrait in the Oval Office in Washington. Trump will mark the end of his first 100 days in office with a flurry of executive orders as he looks to fulfill campaign promises and rack up victories ahead of that milestone.
Protests have been taking place in some airports across the US after President Donald Trump signed an executive order banning migrants and refugees from several Muslim countries. In a setback for Mr Trump, a federal judge has issued an emergency stay order that temporarily blocks the government from deporting people who land with valid visas.
"We are committed to ensuring that all individuals affected by the executive orders, including those affected by the court orders, are being provided all rights afforded under the law," the statement read. "We are also working closely with airline partners to prevent travelers who would not be granted entry under the executive orders from boarding international flights to the U.S. Therefore, we do not anticipate that further individuals traveling by air to the United States will be affected."
Judge Neil Gorsuch, who was nominated by Trump to the nation's high court last week, made the comments Wednesday after Trump accused an appellate court considering his immigration and refugee executive order of being "so political." During the weekend, the president labeled a judge who ruled on his executive order a "so-called judge" and referred to the ruling as "ridiculous."
