Shakir was referencing a similar quote from Trump that he used during primary victories. However, she said Customs officials were refusing to release their names or identities - making it almost impossible to take legal action on their behalf.
"The whole point of this hearing is to preserve the status quo".
Officials in the offices of attorneys general in Pennsylvania, Washington and Hawaii said yesterday they were evaluating what specific claims could be filed, and in which court. "Nobody is to be removed in this class".
Federal judges on Sunday piled on opposition to President Trump's travel bans, following an order from a Brooklyn judge that began the legal backlash to his executive orders. "The government is putting someone back on a plane to Syria now".
He also stressed the need "to be careful as we do this", and said it would be up to the courts to decide "whether or not this has gone too far".
"You have an extreme vetting proposal that didn't get the vetting it should have had", said Sen. "Look what is happening all over Europe and, indeed, the world - a disgusting mess!"
On Sunday, Trump dismissed his critics and blamed the media, as he often does, for "false" reporting. "We can not allow this horror to continue!" Also, a federal judge in Seattle blocked the deportation of two immigrants from the airport there until a hearing Friday. The order also bars the detention of anyone with an approved refugee application.
Trump shot back on Twitter describing the senators as "weak on immigration", and said they "should focus their energies on ISIS, illegal immigration and border security instead of always looking to start World War III". Attorney David A. Isaacson, who practices primarily immigration law in NY, said he learned of a Syrian citizen with a green card who arrived from Germany at around 4 p.m. was still begin questioned two hours later, as his daughter waited for him to be released.
The two men on whose behalf the suit was originally filed, Hameed Khalid Darweesh and Haider Sameer Abdulkhaleq Alshawi, had worked with the United States military in Iraq and had their lives and families threatened as a result.
Trump billed his sweeping executive order as a necessary step to stop "radical Islamic terrorists" from coming to the U.S.
The detentions prompted legal challenges as lawyers representing two Iraqi refugees held at Kennedy Airport filed a writ of habeas corpus early Saturday in the Eastern District of NY seeking to have their clients released. Jerry Nadler and Nydia Velazquez, who tried to free the men. Alshawi was released Saturday night, said a Nadler spokesman. "It's absolutely appalling that someone would be detained when they're already a US resident".
Trump's ban on asylum-seekers came down even as Iraqis endangered by work for the United States in their home country were midflight to their hoped-for refuge in the United States. But border patrol officers have received little guidance on how to implement the order.
The president barred all Syrian refugees from entering the US for an unstated amount of time, banned all refugees worldwide for at least four months and issued a 90-day ban on travellers from Yemen, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Iraq, Libya and Iran.
More broadly, Trump put all processing of refugees on hold for three months and suspended the vetting of Syrian refugees indefinitely, "until such time as I have determined that sufficient changes have been made to the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program to ensure that admission of Syrian refugees is consistent with the national interest". And, he told reporters, he liked Trump. You see it in the airports, you see it all over.
