All 109 travelers who were detained at airports nationwide following a new executive order from President Trump have been released, according to a New York Post report.

Trump on Friday signed an executive order that prohibits foreign nationals from “countries compromised by terrorism” from entering the country, according to a White House release. The order also mandates “a more rigorous vetting process.”

On Twitter, Trump disputed reports of widespread chaos at airports.

A federal judge on Saturday issued a stay on the deportations, and the Trump Administration clarified that permanent green card holders are able to enter the country, CNN reported.
