Okay, so here's a rough overview.

1. Trump signs travel ban. DHS, et al, not shown it in advance.
2. DHS rules that it doesn't apply to green card holders, et al.
3. Bannon overrules DHS, applies it to green card holders, et al.
4. At least five Federal courts throw injunctions, including Seattle's.
5. DHS delays many hours before agreeing to respect courts.
6. Trump/Bannon et al release statement saying the order isn't changed by court rulings.
7. CPB on the ground honours injunctions in Seattle, Boston; refuses in SFO, DFW, JFK. Refuses to meet with Congressional representatives, refuses access to lawyers.
8. Lots of conflicting reports floating around now.

Also, the DHS press release just needs a few "Dear Leaders" to sound North Korean.
