Judge Orders Stay For People Impacted by Trump Immigration Order

The judge who put the brakes on deportations following President Donald Trump's immigration orders this weekend earned her law degree at Ohio State University and immediately went on to the big stage of NY.

He "demonstrated a strong likelihood of success in establishing that removal violates the Establishment Clause, the Immigration and Nationality Act, and his rights to Equal Protection guaranteed by the United States Constitution", the order said. But the judge stopped short of letting them into the country or issuing a broader ruling on the constitutionality of Trump's actions.

On the morning of January 26, a day before Trump's order halting immigration from seven Middle Eastern countries, she encouraged the new citizens to register to vote and read aloud a passage from former President Barack Obama's final letter to the nation: "America is not the project of any one person".

"A federal judge on Saturday night issued a limited order precluding deportations of those individuals already present in the country who had already been approved for visas".

"We've gotten reports of people being detained all over the country", said Becca Heller, director of the International Refugee Assistance Project.




The ruling affects only those travelers who had already arrived in the USA after the president's order went into effect.

The order also includes a 120-day ban on admitting refugees and an indefinite halt on admitting refugees from war-torn Syria.

The order seeks to priorities refugees fleeing religious persecution. "Future visas might not be issued under the Executive Order", Professor Lenni Benson, an immigration expert at New York Law School said. The ACLU, one of the organizations that defend civil rights most important in the country, made the demand after two Iraqi citizens with special visas to enter the United States were held at JFK airport. President Trump's Executive Order affects a minor portion of worldwide travelers, and is a first step towards reestablishing control over America's borders and national security.

Nearly immediately it met with challenges in federal courts.
