Federal Judge Blocks Trump Muslim Immigrant Ban

from The Hill:

The federal court for the Eastern District of New York has reportedly issued an emergency stay temporarily halting the removal of individuals detained after President Trump’s order banned immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S.

The court ruled on a habeas corpus petition filed by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of two Iraqi men who were detained at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Friday after Trump’s ban, The Verge reported Saturday night.

Since then both men, Hameed Khalid Darweesh and Sameer Abdulkhaleq Alshaw, have reportedly been granted entry to the U.S.

    If anyone is ever hurt by these 2 men, may it only be the Judge who sealed the ruling and/or the fools from the ACLU who fought to bring potential terror and terrorists to our shores.

      The ACLU mission is “to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to every person in this country by the Constitution and laws of the United States.” That even includes people like you who persist in judging people strictly on the basis of country of origin, religion they practice, how they look, language they speak, etc. I assure you the ACLU doesn’t have to bring terrorists into the United States; we have plenty of our native ones or haven’t you heard of the KKK, Skin Heads, Christian identity, and crackpot right to lifers who blow up abortion clinics and murder the people who work in them? Does Leo Frank and Emmett Till ring a bell? Frank and Till were murdered by white American Christians who were bent on preserving the United States as a white, Christian nation. Do you really want a country like that where Jews, Muslims, and others so-call racial inferiors need not come to? Read history.

      Yes, Andrea, we understand that “progressives” like you are unable to progress through history, and are eternally stuck in a world where it’s the 1910s or 1930s and the KKK, etc., still amount to something. The rest of us, Trump included, have the common sense to realize that it’s 2017 and there are different issues and concerns.

      Dear Mr Roe and horrible nr1.
      It is obvious that you have not learnt any lessons from history at all. Calling members of a religion animals? Seriously? Shame on you.
      NEVER AGAIN, and I hope you and your community will stand up to their history as refugees and extend their privileges of religious freedom and safety to all members of our society.
      The real terror is uneducated hate.

    Dear #3, Yes it is 2017 but it appears that old hatreds are dying hard, not at all, or new ones have come to the front. I was born in 1962 so I was not around when Frank and Till were murdered but that’s no excuse for me to forget what happened to them and to be vigilant against groups spouting hatred. My grandparents were kicked out of restaurants in the 1950’s for being Mexican nationals. My father was from Texas and he told me about the white/colored signs in public places and other petty humiliations intended to make life carious for African-Americans. All the Jews in the Latvian village where my husband’s family came from were murdered by Nazis. OK, so maybe I’m, how you put it, “unable to progress through history” but at least I remember it. As the survivors of HaShoah constantly remind us “Never Again.”

      Aha. So you chant “Never Again” while supporting the unrestricted immigration of people who are sworn to destroy us. Brilliant.

      I suppose by your logic Jews should have supported the Germans during World War II, seeing as how the Germans during World War I treated the Jews in Eastern Europe better than the Russians did, and you have to remember the past…
