Yup. They were sending quite a lot of H1B visa holders previously under Obama administration. It is nothing new. But sending green card holders is kinda crazy. They need to step in give clear instructions. Simple thing is, consulate to stop issuing visas. But dude wants to make a big statement and sound to his supporters.

They just showed on local tv a man being re-united with his wife and kids. At first he had been banned from coming back. He is from Iran and had gone back to visit his father who was very sick. He is living here legally, having gone through all the paperwork and background checks but they tried to keep him out.

So there is one individual who did get back in and is back here with his family. My own doctor is from Iran, a nice older man. So I guess he probably doesn't dare go back for a visit either?

This is so wrong. If Trump wants to go after ILLEGALS, ok. But don't go after the people who obeyed the laws and came here rightfully. I think Trump doesn't have much of a clue as to what he's doing.

The issue is that LPR'S who have lives and families here are stuck. They were more "in before the ban" than anyone.

The chief of staff and his son in law dropped the ball on this one. Bannon is a windbag and he needs to go too.

The campaign is OVER. Right now he's about as useful as t**ts on a steer.
At first, I was thinking this myself - simple incompetence, surely the order was only intended to apply to new arrivals, not long-time legal residents.

But no - TRUMP MEANT IT TO BE THIS WAY. "It's working out very nicely."

(BTW - apparently it applies to christians and jews from these countries as well, not just muslims.)

Default Federal judge blocks Trump's 7 nation ban

Federal judge blocks Trump immigration order: report | TheHill

http://www.theverge.com/2017/1/28/14...mmigration-ban

The federal court for the Eastern District of New York has officially issued an emergency stay, halting President Donald Trump's executive order banning immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S, The Verge reported Saturday.

The court ruled on a habeas corpus petition filed by the ACLU on behalf of two Iraqi men who were detained at JFK airport Saturday following Trump's ban. Both men, Hameed Khalid Darweesh and Sameer Abdulkhaleq Alshaw have been granted entry to the United States since.

The court’s stay is temporary and it’s clear that the White House will argue to have it reinstated as soon as possible.

I don't recall anything like this being done before, maybe you have an example of a world wide hold on people entering the US on Visas other than Iran back in the 70's when they took over our embassy. This happened within hours of his signature and why exactly was this necessary immediately. This isn't just the US, these people are being prevented from boarding US flights world wide.


This isn't just a few people, it is happening at every airport with the US as a destination. Now who do you suppose should be in charge of making sure the policy of an executive order signed by the president is interpreted correctly.


Please stop minimalizing with "no one made an issue until now", that is complete nonsense.


They put an Iranian National in handcuffs for 17 hours then released him, this will make a great ad for the Ayatollah.

It doesn't. But there was bound to be some confusion for those tasked with enforcing the law.

WOW! That was quick. The wheels of justice normally grind pretty slowly but I suppose these aren't normal times.
