BREAKING: Federal Judge Stays Deportations For Those Stranded By Trump Travel Ban

January 29, 2017

Late Saturday night, a federal judge in Brooklyn ordered a nation-wide stay on the deportations resulting from President Trump’s hastily-enacted travel ban. To be clear, President Trump’s Executive Order remains in effect; this stay only prevents the deportation of those who were in transit as the ban went into effect, and were being detained and/or deported during the chaotic implementation of the travel ban on Saturday. Deportations for such travelers should be halted, but that does not guarantee that they will be permitted to enter the U.S. pursuant to their valid travel authorization.

Additional legal challenges to the Executive Order are certain, so check back to see which aspects of the travel ban survive judicial scrutiny.
