Legal Documents Underlying Trump's Executive Order On Immigration
During his first week in office, President Donald Trump made good on his campaign promise to crack down on immigration into the United States. A broad executive order was signed late in the afternoon on Friday, Jan. 28, 2017. The order barred Syrian refugees from entry and imposed a 90-day entry block on citizens from the following Muslim countries: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. The full text of the order has been published by the New York Times here: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/27/us/politics/refugee-muslim-executive-order-trump.html
The next day, chaos erupted in U.S. airports as the executive order was put into place and a number of travellers were detained. Protests followed and the ACLU filed several federal actions, the first being a habeas corpus petition, with an emergency motion for a stay on the executive order, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York. That same day, U.S. District Judge Ann M. Connelly granted the motion for an emergency stay. Similar results followed in federal courts located in Massachusetts and Virginia.
