Judge halts implementation of Trump's immigration order

NNA – A US federal judge has blocked part of President Donald Trump’s controversial executive order barring citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the US for the next 90 days.

Amid global turmoil, the judge ruled that authorities could not deport citizens of the seven countries who had already arrived in the US with valid visas, or who were in transit.
The ruling was made after the American Civil Liberties Union brought a challenge on behalf of two Iraqis detained at John F Kennedy airport in New York on Friday night, hours after Trump issued his executive order at the White House, banning entry to people from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Yemen and Somalia.

It prompted protests at airports across the US, and condemnation from around the world.——-CNN
