(CNN)The Department of Homeland Security said on Sunday it’ll comply with judicial orders to not deport detained voyagers.
This comes after a federal judge in New Yorkgiven an emergency stay Saturday night for citizens of seven Muslim-majority nations that have already arrived in america and those who find themselves in transit, and who hold valid visas, opinion they can’t be taken out of the United States.
That move limited section of President Donald Trump’s executive order barring citizens from those nations from getting into the US for the next 90 days.
Similar legal opinions were made in Virginia following the New York opinion was made, and Washington state.
“The Department of Homeland Security will comply with judicial orders; faithfully enforce our immigration laws, and implement the president’s Executive Orders to ensure that those entering the United States do not pose a threat to our country or the American people,” the section said.
On Saturday evening, the ACLU claimed in a federal court in New York to get a national stay that will block the deportation of individuals stranded in US airports under exactly what the group called “President Trump’s new Muslim ban.”
The stay was allowed by uS District Judge Ann Donnelly.
“The petitioners have a strong likelihood of success in establishing that the removal of the petitioner and other similarly situated violates their due process and equal protection guaranteed by the United States Constitution,” Donnelly wrote in her selection.
“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 the January 27, 2017, Executive Order.”
