How such a policy would be implemented remains under discussion.

Homeland Security to Comply With Judicial Orders Not to Deport Detained Travelers Affected by President Trump’s Ban

“This should not happen in America,” Velazquez said following Darweesh’s release. This ruling was made after the ACLU of Massachusetts filed a lawsuit asking for the release of two associate professors at the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth, both Iranian nationals who are permanent residents of the United States. “When Mr. You see it all over.” However. The countries impacted are Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Yemen and Somalia, according to a White House official. Similar legal actions had been initiated in other states.. “America is the land of freedom,” he told reporters at the airport shortly after his release. soil.”
Lawsuit is first challenge to executive order
The class-action lawsuit is the first legal challenge to Trump’s controversial executive order, which indefinitely suspends admissions for Syrian refugees and limits the flow of other refugees into the United States by instituting what the President has called “extreme vetting” of immigrants. Here are the latest developments:
• Two Iraqis who were named as the petitioners in the legal action had been released by Saturday night. When the attorneys asked, ‘Who is the person to talk to?’ the CBP agents responded, ‘Mr. Kennedy airport in New York. “Our courageous plaintiff and countless others risked their lives helping US service members in Iraq. An official was not able to provide numbers of how many have already been detained.

Trump’s travel ban. Nydia Velazquez, D-New York, who had arrived at JFK by early Saturday afternoon to try and secure the release of the two Iraqis, railed against Trump’s order and pledged continued action. The two Iraqis, Hameed Khalid Darweesh and Haider Sameer Abdulkaleq Alshawi, had been released by Saturday night. “Because the executive order is unlawful as applied to petitioners, their continued detention based solely on the executive order violates their Fifth Amendment procedural and substantive due process rights,” the lawyers argue in court papers. The lawsuit was earlier reported by The New York Times. If the person landed after the order was signed Friday afternoon, then the person would be detained and put back on a flight to their country of citizenship. It also caps the total number of refugees admitted into the United States during the 2017 fiscal year at 50,000, down more than half from the current level of 110,000. On Saturday protesters converged on at least eight major US airports, demonstrating against the policy. Legality questioned
Trump’s executive order, titled “Protection Of The Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into The United States,” makes good on his longtime campaign promise to tighten borders and halt certain refugees from entering the United States. The lawyers for the two men called for a hearing because they maintain the detention of people with valid visas is illegal. It also suspends the US Refugee Admissions Program for 120 days until it is reinstated “only for nationals of countries for whom” members of Trump’s Cabinet deem can be properly vetted. But lawyers said in a court filing that “dozens and dozens” of people remained in detention at John F. “It’s working out very nicely,” Trump told reporters Saturday. Sen. The United States denied entry to 109 travelers heading to the country at the time the ruling was signed, a Department of Homeland Security official said. Court papers said Customs and Border Protection authorities did not allow the lawyers to meet with the men and told them to try reaching Trump.

At Least 7 Detainees Held at LAX as Protesters Rail Against Trump’s Travel Ban “We are hoping that CBP (Customs and Border Patrol), now that they no longer have a reason to detain them, will release them. A federal court in Washington state issued a stay forbidding travelers being detained there from being sent back to their home country. Doss, an attorney with the International Refugee Assistance Project, told CNN his clients knew they had to get to the US as soon as possible so they boarded the first flight they could. The US Department of Homeland Security said on Sunday it will comply with judicial orders not to deport detained travelers affected by President Donald Trump’s seismic move to ban more than 130 million people from entering the United States. “One by one, street by street, if we have to go to court, we will fight this anyplace, anywhere.”
‘The executive order is unlawful’
The lawsuit said the US granted Alshawi a visa earlier this month to meet with his wife and son, whom the US already granted refugee status for her association with the US military.

A federal judge in New York granted an emergency stay Saturday night for citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries who have already arrived in the US and those who are in transit, and who hold valid visas, ruling they cannot be removed from the US. On week one, Donald Trump suffered his first loss in court.”
Lee Gelernt, deputy director of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, who argued the case, said the ruling “preserves the status quo and ensures that people who have been granted permission to be in this country are not illegally removed off U.S. “The petitioners have a strong likelihood of success in establishing that the removal of the petitioner and other similarly situated violates their due process and equal protection guaranteed by the United States Constitution,” Donnelly wrote in her decision. Rep. President. But lawyers for other detained travelers said in a court filing that “dozens and dozens” of individuals remained held at JFK.

After the federal orders were issued, the department said it “will continue to enforce all of the president’s Executive Orders in a manner that ensures the safety and security of the American people. The suit said Darweesh held a special immigrant visa, which he was granted the day of Trump’s inauguration on January 20, due to his work for the US government from 2003 to 2013. Romero praised the ruling, saying “our courts today worked as they should as bulwarks against government abuse or unconstitutional policies and orders. ACLU Executive Director Anthony D.

Alshawi was released Saturday night, according to his attorney, Mark Doss. “America is the greatest nation.”
A source with knowledge of the case confirmed Darweesh will be allowed into the US due to provisions in Trump’s order that allow the State and Homeland Security departments to admit individuals into the US on a case-by-case base for certain reasons, including when the person is already in transit and it would cause undue hardship and would not pose a threat to the security of the US. Darweesh’s attorneys approached CBP requesting to speak with Mr. there was widespread confusion across the country as authorities at airports struggled to adjust to the new directives. The ruling does not necessarily mean the people being held at airports across the US are going to be released, said Zachary Manfredi, from Yale’s Worker and Immigrant Rights Advocacy Clinic, who helped draft the emergency stay motion. Trump’s order, signed Friday, bars travel from seven Muslim-majority countries, including Iraq, to the US for 90 days.

Inside Trump’s Executive Order and Travel Ban

Their decision held that, on a case by case basis, DHS could allow green card holders to enter the US. Separately, a person familiar with the matter said career officials in charge of enforcing the executive order were not fully briefed on the specifics until Friday. President Donald Trump signs executive orders in the Hall of Heroes at the Department of Defense on January 27, 2017 in Arlington, Virginia. Trump’s unilateral moves, which have drawn the ire of human rights groups and prompted protests at US airports, reflect the President’s desire to quickly make good on his campaign promises. “You see it at the airports. Administration officials also seemed unsure at first who was covered in the action, and a list of impacted countries was only produced later on Friday night, hours after the President signed the document at the Pentagon. The Department of Homeland Security was left making a legal analysis on the order after Trump signed it. A Border Patrol agent, confronted with arriving refugees, referred questions only to the President himself, according to court filings. Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly and Department of Homeland Security leadership saw the final details shortly before the order was finalized, government officials said. Adviser Kellyanne Conway even said at one point it was not going to be released before eventually it did get sent out. Regarding the green card holders and some of the confusion about whether they were impacted, the person familiar with the matter said if career officials had known more about the executive order earlier, some of the confusion could have been avoided and a better plan could be in place. It wasn’t until Friday — the day Trump signed the order banning travel from seven Muslim-majority countries for 90 days and suspending all refugee admission for 120 days — that career homeland security staff were allowed to see the final details of the order, a person familiar with the matter said.

When President Donald Trump declared at the Pentagon Friday he was enacting strict new measures to prevent domestic terror attacks, there were few within his government who knew exactly what he meant. But the guidance sent to airlines on Friday night, obtained by CNN, said clearly, “lawful permanent residents are not included and may continue to travel to the USA.”
As of Saturday afternoon, Customs and Border Protection continued to issue the same guidance to airlines as it did Friday, telling airlines that fly to the US that green card holders can board planes to the US but they may get extra scrutiny on arrival, according to an airline official. That order came from the President’s inner circle, led by Stephen Miller and Steve Bannon. The officials were caught off guard by some of the specifics and raised questions about how to handle the new banned passengers on US-bound planes. Friday night, DHS arrived at the legal interpretation that the executive order restrictions applying to seven countries — Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Sudan and Yemen — did not apply to people who with lawful permanent residence, generally referred to as green card holders. Administration officials also defended the process Saturday. U.S. President Donald Trump signs executive orders in the Hall of Heroes at the Department of Defense on January 27, 2017 in Arlington, Virginia. It’s working out very nicely and we’re going to have a very, very strict ban, and we’re going to have extreme vetting, which we should have had in this country for many years.”
The policy team at the White House developed the executive order on refugees and visas, and largely avoided the traditional interagency process that would have allowed the Justice Department and homeland security agencies to provide operational guidance, according to numerous officials who spoke to CNN on Saturday. But even after the Friday afternoon announcement, administration officials at the White House took several hours to produce text of the action until several hours after it was signed. Trump signed two orders calling for the "great rebuilding" of the nation's military and the "extreme vetting" of visa seekers from seven Muslim-majority countries. In Philadelphia, a Syrian family of six who had a visa through a family connection in the US was placed on a return flight to Doha, Qatar, and Department of Homeland Security officials said others who were in the air would be detained upon arrival and put back on a plane to their home country. Saturday night, a federal judge granted an emergency stay for citizens of the affected countries who had already arrived in the US and those who are in transit and hold valid visas, ruling they can legally enter the US. Asked during a photo opportunity in the Oval Office Saturday afternoon about the rollout, Trump said his government was “totally prepared.”
“It’s working out very nicely,” Trump told reporters. Administration officials weren’t immediately sure which countries’ citizens would be barred from entering the United States. But they also encapsulate the pitfalls of an administration largely operated by officials with scant federal experience. The result was widespread confusion across the country on Saturday as airports struggled to adjust to the new directives. (Credit: Olivier Douliery-Pool/Getty Images)

Inside Trump’s Executive Order and Travel Ban

U.S. It was decided by the Department of Homeland Security they could fly to the US and would be considered on a case-by-case basis after passing a secondary screening. Bannon and Miller were running point on this order and giving directives regarding green cards, according to a Republican close to the White House. Before the President issued the order, the White House did not seek the legal guidance of the Office of Legal Counsel, the Justice Department office that interprets the law for the executive branch. They said the people who needed to be briefed ahead of time on the plane were briefed and that people at the State Department and DHS who were involved in the process were able to make decisions about who to talk and inform about this. There had been some debate whether green card holders should be even allowed to board international flights. The White House overruled that guidance overnight, according to officials familiar with the rollout. Kennedy International Airport, and 10 others were detained as well. A source said the executive order did not follow the standard agency review process that’s typically overseen by the National Security Council, though the source couldn’t specifically say if that included the decision to not have the order go through the Office of Legal Counsel. 38.907192

Kayla Razavi, whose family emigrated from Iran, addresses the crowd during a rally against a ban on Muslim immigration at San Francisco International Airport on Jan. “The US decision to restrict travel for Muslims to the US, even if for a temporary period of three months, is an obvious insult to the Islamic world and in particular to the great nation of Iran,” the Foreign Affairs Ministry statement said. “Despite the claims of combating terrorism and keeping American people safe, it will be recorded in history as a big gift to extremists and their supporters.”
Iran will take “proportionate legal, consular and political action and … will take reciprocal measures in order to safeguard the rights of its citizens until the time of the removal of the insulting restrictions of the government of the United States against Iranian nationals.”
