UPDATE 1:44 PM |  The State Department says fewer than 60,000 visas were canceled.

The government revoked more than 100,000 visas as a result of President Trump’s ban on travel from seven predominantly Muslim countries, an attorney for the government revealed in Alexandria federal court Friday.

The number came out during a hearing in a lawsuit filed by attorneys for two Yemeni brothers who arrived at Dulles International Airport on Saturday and were quickly put on a return flight to Ethiopia in response to the president’s executive order, according to the Washington Post.
