President Donald Trump’s controversial executive order temporarily barring travel into the United States from six majority-Muslim nations is expected to begin Thursday, a Homeland Security official told Business Insider Wednesday.

“We expect implementation to begin tomorrow and we’ll release additional information then,” David Lapan, a spokesperson for the Department of Homeland Security, told Business Insider.

Lapan said DHS continues to “work with the Departments of State and Justice on the way forward for implementation of the executive order based on the Supreme Court’s ruling.”
