How will the H1B immigration ban affect people who have to land in Canada post PPR as a formality?

Is it risky to travel outside USA due to the new executive order?

If you have an H1B visa stamped, you should be good. But since executed order passed just today, border security could deport anyone as all they care is whether you are H1B or not. The best option would be to stay in the US and follow the news.

I don’t think so. If you are employed and currently holding a valid visa in US then you should be fine travelling into US.

With a valid stamped visa, you should be fine.I would still wait for a few days to observe how the border agents are interpreting the EO.During the infamous “Muslim Ban” many US permanent residents and dual citizens were denied entry in the US
