Vrijenhoek said she had no specifics on their nationalities, although she confirmed they were from countries affected by the three-month immigration ban – Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen.
The ban sparked panic yesterday when it came into effect at 4.30pm with many passengers left in legal limbo as to whether or not their valid visas would be accepted if they tried to enter the US.
