Remove the "judge". If the Supreme Court weighs in that's one thing but this judge has no place to stop an entire national presidential order.

It was immensely and profoundly stupid of Trump to make his executive order take effect immediately without warning. There was no reason to strand people at airports and create instant chaos. His E.O. should have said "Effective March 1 ... " Give people time to adjust to the new rules, arrange flights, etc.

Amateur hour at Trump Circus Circus continues...

H1B visa holders sent back at Port of Entry. AVOID travel to India / Home country. What can you do to make your Case stronger at port of entry ?
You're comparing this to returning 5 people from India here on Visas, do you understand the magnitude of what Trump just did, this is at multiple ports of entry both inside and outside the US. This isn't a foul up by customs, this was our president.


This has never happened before, even after 9/11

Cuomo responds to immigration ban: 'I never thought I'd see the day' | TheHill

I suspect that right this minute, Trump is the most unpopular resident of NY EVER.

Bigly.

Many of them are not on visas. They are LEGAL PERMANENT RESIDENTS=people who came here legally through the system/the right way/ to live here. Wives and kids are here, they LIVE here. He is being a stupid idiot to tell them that if they went back to the country they were born in for a visit they suddenly are not allowed back.
