State Department data shows decline in visas issued

As we've documented on our blog over the last several months, the executive order signed -- and subsequently revised -- by President Donald Trump barring people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the U.S. for 90 days due to security concerns has been routinely defeated by the federal courts.
