Judge who stayed Trump immigration order has MI roots

Multiple people were detained over the weekend as officials sought to comply with Trump's new executive order, which called for a 90-day ban on nationals from seven predominantly Muslim countries, including Iran, entering the United States.

The federal judge whose emergency order temporarily barred the US from deporting people from nations subject to President Donald Trump's travel ban is a University of MI graduate.

Judge: Aetna lied about quitting Obamacare
The plan, though, has languished for months while seeking federal approval. Neither of defendants' rebuttal arguments is persuasive. The reason Aetna gave at the time was business based.

Lawyers and advocates working at the airport say they didn't have a hard count on the number of people taken into custody after getting off their flights, but Congressman Jerry Nadler, D-New York, said 12 people were detained. According to ACLU, between 100 and 200 people have been detained on arrival at USA airports since Trump signed the order on Friday, a week after his inauguration, although the government has not confirmed those figures.

Trump on Friday signed an executive order that suspended refugees from immigrating to the United States for 120 days. But the judge stopped short of letting them into the country or issuing a broader ruling on the constitutionality of Trump's actions. It also covered anyone with an approved refugee application. It means that those fleeing horrific conditions, who fought alongside soldiers protecting our country, or who were merely caught up in the sheer irresponsibility of this order will not be sent away. "The courts worked the way they're supposed to work in our country", Lee Gelernt, Deputy Legal Director for the ACLU's Immigrants Rights Project, told MSNBC.

The newspaper said Vayeghan was on a plane to Tehran by the time the judge issued the order.

They knew Trump had pledged tougher rules but did not expect they would affect holders of green cards, which allow foreigners to live and work in the United States.
