Trump has suspended due process for Muslims

Trump has suspended due process for Muslims

The lawsuit could represent the first legal challenge to Trump's controversial executive order, which indefinitely suspends admissions for Syrian refugees and limits the flow of other refugees into the United States by instituting what the President has called "extreme vetting" of immigrants.

One day after President Trump signed an executive order halting the admittance of all refugees to the United States, and temporarily freezing immigration from seven mostly Muslim countries, the effects of that freeze are already beginning to be seen at airports both in the USA and overseas.

"President Trump's war on equality is already taking a awful human toll", Omar Jadwat, director of the ACLU's Immigrants' Rights Project said in a statement. "This ban can not be allowed to continue", said Omar Jadwat, director of the ACLU's Immigrants' Rights Project, in a story on the organization's website.

"There is no evidence that refugees - the most thoroughly vetted of all people entering our nation - are a threat to national security", said Lena F. Masri, the group's national litigation director. The Council of Islamic Relations said on Friday that it would hold a news conference on Monday announcing the filing of a federal lawsuit on behalf of more than 20 individuals challenging the order.

While Trump said his executive order was meant to keep "radical Islamic terrorists" out of the US, the two men grabbed up by Customs and Border Protection agent appeared far less sinister. Two of the interpreters he employed were executed by Iraqi militia, he added. "The guy was fearless".

Hirsch said she hasn't met Darweesh yet, but once he arrives and she confirms that he has a valid "special immigrant visa", she said he can be enrolled in the refugee agency's database and begin receiving "standard case management", which includes help finding a job and an apartment and enrolling in social services, such as food stamps and Medicaid. The order says they can not return to the US for 90 days. They were on their way to Charlotte, N.C. The executive order, he wrote, "is likely to prevent permanent residents like me from returning to the country where I am a student, where I have to defend my thesis", according to the Guardian. "I don't have any hope to go to the United States".

It was a period of limbo for an unknown number of non-American citizens from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia or Yemen now barred from the country where they were studying or had lived, perhaps for years. "We only want to admit those into our country who will support our country and love deeply our people". "There's a new sheriff in town".

"These are people with valid visas and legitimate refugee claims who have already been determined by the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security to be admissible and to be allowed to enter the USA and now are being unlawfully detained", Doss told TheNYT. The organization also referred to Trump's order as a "Muslim ban", although religion is nor mentioned in his executive order on immigration. "I put my life at risk, working with the Americans at a time that it could have got you killed".

Confusion and chaos are roiling worldwide airports, where refugees from those countries are being barred from boarding USA -bound flights.
