Habeas Petition Challenges Refugee Executive Order as Unconstitutional

A federal judge in Brooklyn is allowing detained immigrants to stay in the USA following President Trump's order blacklisting refugees from seven countries in the Middle East and Africa.

"These are people with valid visas and legitimate refugee claims who have already been determined by the state department and the department of homeland security to be admissible and to be allowed to enter the U.S.", said Mr Doss told the newspaper.

One of the detained men, Hameed Khalid Darweesh, had worked as an interpreter for USA forces in Iraq as a decade, having his life targeted twice for doing so, the Times reported.

Donnelly ordered the stay after two Iraqi men were detained at John F Kennedy airport in NY on Saturday. The other was coming to the U.S.to join his wife, who works for a USA contractor, and their son.

Hirsch said the "special immigrant visa" program is for people from Iraq and Afghanistan who supported USA troops as interpreters during the wars.

Less than 24 hours after President Donald Trump signed an executive order clamping down on refugee admissions and temporarily restricting travelers from seven predominantly Muslim countries, the impact appears to already be resonating at airports around the world.

In response to the executive order, Iran's foreign ministry suggested the country will limit issuing visas to American tourists.

The countries impacted are Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Yemen and Somalia, according to a White House official. He said Darweesh, who was among the first Iraqis to sign up to serve the USA military, was "fearless" and saved countless U.S. lives.

The detention at Kennedy of two Iraqi refugees who had been in the air when the order was signed has led to legal challenges of the executive order from their attorneys, who are also seeking motion for class certification to represent all refugees and immigrants being detained at points of entry. On Saturday, people who'd been legally authorized to travel to the USA when they boarded their flights found themselves treated like criminals when they disembarked.

The two Iraqi men were just some of the many people being illegally held inside of airports, subject to unreasonable search and interrogation.

The three women became part of a massive evening protest of more than 1,000 people in terminal four of JFK Airport.

Alghnimi had been to the USA several times before and has a valid visa, Rehab said.

Jeremy Swick, a corporate immigration counsel based in Detroit, Michigan, home to one of the largest and diverse Arab American Muslim communities saiid: "I think the order was rushed and Trump was trying to make a political statement". Google, one report says, has out 100 people who are traveling overseas who might be affected by this order.

But Stephen Yale-Loehr, a professor of immigration law practice at Cornell Law School, said Trump's order may have merit. "You see it at the airports, you see it all over".

Trump's order suspends entry of all refugees to the US for 120 days.

Trump's order does not mention specific religions, but in an interview on Friday with the Christian Broadcasting Network, Trump said he was acting to help Christians in Syria who were "horribly treated". "We don't want them here".
