U.S. District Judge Andre Birotte Jr. on Tuesday granted a temporary restraining order against President Donald Trump's controversial executive order, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Birotte in his order prohibited federal officials from "removing, detaining, or blocking the entry" of travelers affected by the ban or "canceling validly obtained and issued immigrant visas of plaintiffs."

Other federal judges in the country have issued similar rulings but news reports claim those edicts are not being followed.

Trump's order, dubbed "Protecting the nation from foreign terrorist entry into the United States," bans citizens from Syria, Somalia, Iran, Libya, Sudan, Yemen and Iraq from entering the country for at least 90 days. It also suspends the refugee program for four months, bans Syrian refugees, calls for new immigration screening procedures and directs the secretary of Homeland Security to conduct a 30-day review to determine which countries fail to provide "adequate information" for its citizens to be issued visas to enter the United States.
