Gulf carrier Qatar Airways will allow passengers barred from the United States by President Donald Trump's executive order last week to resume boarding U.S.-bound flights after a federal judge blocked the move, an airline spokeswoman said on Saturday.
U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP) has advised Qatar Airways it can board travellers from seven Muslim-majority countries and all refugees who had been banned under the order, according to a statement on the airline's website.

The White House said on Wednesday it has issued updated guidance on President Donald Trump's executive order on immigration clarifying that legal permanent residents, or green card holders, do not require a waiver to enter the United States.
"They no longer need a waiver because if they are a legal permanent resident they won't need it anymore," White House spokesman Sean Spicer said at a news briefing.
The restriction on green card holders was among the most confusing elements in the executive order signed on Friday.

The confusion was intentionally perpetrated. Then, the rabid foaming-at-the-mouth Trump haters in the media saw an opportunity to add to the confusion. Study it all very closely, folks, and you can follow the path of hype and obfuscation.
Trump's rollout was just fine. It is legal and went through all the proper channels, including the Office of Legal Counsel of the Attorney General's office.
Some serious scheisse is attempting to undermine this administration. He's getting too close for their comfort and they are scrambling like the rats they are, imo.
