Demonstrations occurred at major airports
across the country, including in Portland, New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Seattle, Washington, Newark, Denver, and Atlanta.
Legal Action Taken Against the Ban
includes The American Civil Liberties Union in Brooklyn suing over the detention of their Iraqi clients at the John F Kennedy International airport. Late Saturday, Judge Ann Donnelly of NY issued a temporary restraining order stopping the deportation of as many as 200 people. A federal judge in Virginia ordered that travelers have access to volunteer attorneys. A judge in Massachusetts ruled the travelers not only were free from deportation, but that those being held must be released from federal detention. There are reports from pro bono lawyers that border agents may not be complying with some of those directives from the federal judiciary.
