Federal judge halts enforcement of Trump immigration ban

The Hill

A federal judge in Detroit has ordered the administration to stop enforcement President Trump's executive order barring citizens from certain Muslim-majority countries from traveling to the U.S, CBS Detroit reported Friday.

The executive order bans people from Iraq, Iran, Syria, Yemen, Libya, Sudan and Somalia from entering the U.S. for 90 days, and temporarily halts the country's refugee resettlement program.

The order, issued last Friday, immediately stirred controversy when travelers who were en route to the U.S. when it was signed were detained at airports. Protesters demonstrated at airports across the county last weekend.

Trump has argued that the move is necessary to preserve U.S. national security. Critics say the order amounts to a de facto Muslim ban.
