Question:  When did the 120-day suspension begin, and when will the review be completed?

Answer:  Per the Presidential Memorandum of June 14, the 120-day suspension on refugee admissions began June 29, and the review of the refugee admissions and adjudication process outlined in the EO will be completed during that time.

The 120-day suspension does not apply to those determined to be “formally scheduled for transit” as of that time.
