But the operative word is “temporarily” as President Trump actually has more legal power than the judge in this area. President Trump banned entry to the US from 7 majority Islam countries. The judge is a Barack Hussein Obama appointee which is why they chose to appear before her.  As a result Hameed khalid Darweesh was released from detention at JFK.

Judge’s Order and Decision re: Muslim Bank by Trump
by Syndicated News SNN.BZ on Scribd

The federal judge in Brooklyn who issued the stay halting President Trump’s order denying entry to the United States to people from seven predominantly Muslim countries is a former prosecutor who spent 25 years working in the office of Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau. Ann M. Donnelly, 57, became a federal judge in October 2015.

U.S. District Court Judge Ann Donnelly ruled in favor of a habeas corpus petition filed by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) on behalf of two Iraqi men who were detained at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Friday after Trump signed his order.

Donnelly was nominated by former President Barack Obama and confirmed to her judgeship in 2015, ruled in the Eastern District of New York that “there is imminent danger that, absent the stay of removal, there will be substantial and irreparable injury to refugees, visa-holders, and other individuals from nations subject” to Trump’s order.

A federal judge granted an emergency stay Saturday to temporarily allow people with valid visas who landed in the U.S. to stay in the country, following chaos and detentions after President Donald Trump’s executive order related to immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries.


The American Civil Liberties Union estimates it will affect between 100 and 200 people detained at or in transit to U.S. airports. It will not, however, stay the president’s entire order.

The ACLU and other activist groups filed a class action lawsuit on Saturday, seeking to challenge the president’s order, as acrimony widened over the policy and the number of detainees waylaid in transit appeared to swell.

  • Banning refugees, even temporarily, from entering the U.S. is pure discrimination against a religious group. Not one terrorist attack in the U.S. was perpetrated by a refugee from any of these countries. This makes absolutely no sense aside from anti-Semitic fear-mongering. Shame!

    • President Nixon, President Carter, President Reagan, President Bush (both of them), President Clinton and President Obama instituted far longer and even permanent bans to people from specific countries many of which are still in force and no one said a word about it and there certainly wasn’t any marching or protesting. This protest is nothing more then Twitter and Facebook run amok. The president of any country gets to decide who he or she wants to give entry into the sovereign land that it is. No one has a right to be here – being here is a privilege. Try forcing your way into Mexico or Canada and see how far it gets you.

    • Nonsense every president since Nixon has banned one or several countries at a time for a year or two in fact. The Marching and the objections comes from the Democratic losers that have not accepted having lost Congress the Senate the opportunity to influence the Supreme Court of course the executive role. It wasn’t like a theft it was a home invasion
