Immigration Order: A week in review

- With all that's happened since President Trump signed the executive order on immigration, it can be hard to keep up. Fox 9 takes a look at this week in review, from what's happened at our nation's airports, how the community has reacted and how Minnesotans have been affected.

Most recently, the Department of Homeland Security announced they won't direct airlines to keep visa-holders covered by the Trump order from boarding US-bound planes. Additionally, the State Department reversed the cancellations of visas for foreigners after a federal judge put the order on hold.
